    Any vapers?

    Any ex-smoker vapers here?

    This is a page on my website that I wrote when I started this.

    I tried 'vaping' but it was horrible, I quit using patches, it easy. Staying off is the hard bit, I stopped nearly three years, went back a while, stopped again nine months, started again, been stoped three months again lol! I know some people can't cope with patches because of skin issues.

    I'm real close to 6 months now. I've found the E-Cigarette Forum to be a great place of knowledge and nice, helpful folks. I certainly hope you can find a route that works for you! Good Luck!

    Good on ya!

    A good friend of mine who smoked for at least 30 years did the 'vapin' (is that a word?) thing for a couple of years but even quit that about 5 months ago. He's completely "smoke/vape-free" and lovin' it.

    Good luck,
    Kevin

    For the past
    1 year and 57 days
    $1,700 not spent on 4,399 cigarettes not smoked.
    LESS than of that on Vaping.
    3.16 ounces of tar could've been in my lungs but aren't.
    Happy Turkey and/or Ham Day!

    Hey Kevin, hope you and yours had a good holiday! Hope everyone else enjoyed the celebratory day the Native Americans accepted us as refugees too!

    Hey there, Seawitchartist! Nice to 'see' you once more. The forum in the post I've quoted above may provide some helpful answers for you. I hope so, and that you remain healthy as can be, no matter which path you choose to follow!

    3.16 ounces of tar could've been in my lungs but aren't.
    I've been vaping and not smoking for
    2 years and 141 days
    Not a cent spent for the last 92 days.
    On vaping I've spent only around of the
    $2,666 that I haven't spent on the 9,059* cigarettes that I haven't smoked.
    I could've put 6.6 ounces of tar into my lungs, but haven't..
    another vape day

    More years ago than I care to think about a grade school teacher, and former smoker even then, said to us mush-brains on a hot day: "See the tar oozing off the parking lot? Go out there, grab a handful and stuff it in your lungs. That's part of what smoking does to you." Pretty graphic.

    Kinda funny/strange though. Vaping has become "cool" with kids these days (a phrase I hated when I was a kid ) -- even for those who have never smoked a cigarette. My almost 20-year-old nephew* is one. His mom (my sister) is apoplectic about it.

    * He's almost 20 years old, not almost my nephew!
