Smokers of RU

After 20 years of smoking, 2 days ago I smoked my last cigarette. I switched to vaping.

I was BAD, no energy, wheezing, random coughing fits that wouldn't subside until I vomited... I've been in situations where I'd have to ask the the drive thru worker at Tim Hortons for extra napkins so I could clean up the vomit on my legs, all because of smoking.

After just 2 days of vaping, I feel like a million bucks. I feel great, I've got energy, lung capacity and just breathing immediatly way better. I feel like a new person.

And the most important part, I still feel satisfied. I'm not craving a smoke anymore.

It's a really REALLY good method for quitting smoking.

There will never be a "right" time to quit smoking, the "right" time is now, I learned that the hard way.

Re: Smokers of RU

I had smoked for about 10 years. Was about 3/4 a pack a day. Quit on my son's 1st birthday. Just threw the pack away and never looked back. Was a lot easier than I thought it would he. Not coughing up green mucus is a plus but I don't think I ever felt like I had more energy. Guess I just don't have issues with addiction.

Anyways, keep up the great work, Steven.

Re: Smokers of RU

I was born so small {premature, just over 3 lbs ish} that I spent the first few months of life in a special plastic box to help me breathe - this being due to the fact my mom {and everyone else for that matter} smoked.
IN fact if you want to get technical, I had to be removed prematurely by C - section due to complications from cigarette smoke and was not expected to live.

All during my childhood I remember being surrounded by adults who seemed to constantly have an alcoholic drink of some kind in one hand, and a cigarette in the other.
When I complained it was bothering me, I was told things like 'go crack the window a bit' {which does not help much at all, btw} 'go in another room' , etc. but these small 'solutions' just don't work.

Car rides were the worst, because of the obviously smaller area for the smoke to accumulate in.
What's worse is that all those years ago, my mom liked these goddamned cigar - like dark cigarettes, her 'little black stogies' that stunk like Satan's Hell - besmeared farting hole and just now she just found out she has cancer.

Both of my parents quit ages back but the damage is done.

I have birth defects and health problems, not the least of which being Hypersensitivity which I blame on being a preemie; I can't even get a Doctor to LISTEN to me about this, and it's something which affects me daily - everything is too bright, loud, etc.
It's something only other sufferers can understand.

IN CONCLUSION:

Smoking is not good for people despite many claims to the contrary.
Yes there are people who smoked several packs a day until well into their 90's, but what about people like me who get born damaged because of smoking?
Now I can't say for certain whether it was the cigarettes my mom smoked, or the second - hand smoke she breathed in from everyone else's but here again the damage is done and I say cigarettes are to blame.

Joeseph Cullman, CEO Phillip Morris, during an interview in 1971:

Quote:
It's true that babies born from women who smoke are smaller, but they're just as healthy as babies born from women who do not smoke.
And some women would prefer having smaller babies.
NO, we are not as healthy, you rich asshole.
Maybe the things you spray on the leaves before rolling it into cigs has something to do with it:

Re: Smokers of RU

I switched to a vapor thing a while ago but I'm pretty annoyed with it and I'm trying to quit completely. It does work though it's just annoying to deal with and it's still costly. When I cheat and have a real cig I feel like I can't breath as well and I feel tired, it's pretty scary.

Re: Smokers of RU

I have tried 3 different types of vapor products and different levels to quit smoking but when I do the vapor it usually just makes me want to have a smoke.

Steven, any ideas on how to make the vapor thing work better so that the desire to smoke goes away?

Its entirely possible that I am doing something wrong and that could be the issue there. I try tho to not smoke at all

My first smokeless day I was hungover, and had smoked a boatload the night before, I think it helped because I was feeling half sick, so cigarettes weren't that appetizing that day. I made sure I had no smokes in the house, so I didn't not have the option to quickly grab a cigarette. To try to help combat the physical addiction, I needed a signal to tell myself I was done my smoke break, what I came up with was to take one really large haul and exhale it out my nose, that tells my brain I'm done for now.

Try taking really light long hauls, like barely breathing in and vaping the liquid long and slow, this can get really big hauls that taste harsher than the average cigarette drag.

Aside from that I really don't know what to say, when a craving hits, I crave a smoke, and not a vape. But then I go out for a vape and I don't crave a smoke anymore. Just keep ripping on that vape till you almost pass out if you need too.

I really don't think there is a trick to it, just vape away the cravings. Good luck.

Re: Smokers of RU

I gotta say I'm shocked at the amount of people who want to quit. I'm proud of you guys for trying to stop, even if it's with something like vaping.

Re: Smokers of RU

Want to quit?
Picture cigarettes as little white burning penises sticking out of peoples' mouths; I do.
People probably wonder why I laugh when I look at them while they're smoking, but the joke is on them.

'.. expert, texpert, choking smokers - don't you think the Joker laughs at you? - ho ho ho hee hee hee haw haw haw!'
