>>721500420 I smoked for 20 years. The last 5 of them, I bought tobacco and a roller and rolled my own, to save money. I smoked 2 packs a day. Last May I bought Kanger E-cig. A good one, not those shitty ones they sell at the convenience stores. I read a little bit about them, bought a battery for it, extra coils, and some juice. I haven't smoke a cigarette since the day I started with these e-cigs. They are miracle workers. No joke.
>>721500420 Pack and a half to two pack a day smoker for 12 years Quit cold turkey, I layed in bed and cried for like three days, cravings lasted about 6ish months. I get a random craving every now and then, but it is all good now
>>721500420 I dunno. I honestly never think I was addicted to them. I just really like them. I haven't smoked in about 6 months. But I've quit this long before and still started smoking again when it seemed like a good idea.
Also try snus. It's much safer and I actually prefer it taste wise.
>>721500420 Dude, electronic cigarettes ARE the answer. I don't know why more people don't realize this. Just like Suboxone is like a literal miracle cure for opiate addicts, e-cigarettes are the miracle cure for tobacco smokers. You really ought to realize how important they are.
Day 1. Optimistic, stressed a lil bit ok Day 2. INTENSE hunger, binge ate, stressed Day 3. Bought $30 worth of intense wintermint gum (menthol smoker) Day 4-6. Chew gum every hour instead of cigarette.
Works pretty well, im feelin alot better then i did a week ago about it. Offically day 7, im done this time.
Accept a certain reality that when you quit you WILL think about cigarettes every day for the rest of your life. Also accept an objective reality that if you smoke you think about cigarettes every day for the rest of your life. Now choose.
Only smoked about a pack a week and a pack on the weekends while out drinking. Was down to only one a day before bedtime after a good buzz. Smoked my last one, one day last July, never bought another pack, never bummed one from anyone. The first real test was a few months after, at the bar with friends, was out with them while they were smoking, had no urge whatsoever. I believe you have to be ready and want to quit, that's where I was, just over it.
>>721500420 I got tired of coughing up shit every morning and getting winded from walk up a couple flights of stairs.
I gradually quit though, over the course of about two years (I had been smoking for about 10 years, pack a day at the peak). It wasn't intentional at first, I just started smoking less. I made a rule that the most I could have was one an hour. Then a pushed it to no more than one per two hours. Then I told myself no more than 5per day. Then one day I said fuck it I'm tired of wasting money and health on this shit. I've been clean about a year and a half now.
>>721500420 I smoked from about 16-18. I was over a pack a day. At a party, I would smoke 2-3 packs. I was in college at the time, but over the summer I had a week with no classes. I basically locked myself in my room while visiting my parents. I had no work or school to worry about, didn't have to leave their house for groceries or anything, and just played video games for the week. Never smoked again after that.
>>721500961 This is kinda what i did. Then I just scaled back on the strength of the juice. Like I would split high nicotine with med then med with low then low with none then quit. No withdrawal symptoms that way.
>>721500420 The easiest way I've found is to just stop buying packs and start smoking weed/dabs. Being high makes me not crave cigs. If this doesn't work just get a vape and gradually decrease the nicotine mg
>>721500420 I quit 5 months ago. :^) Cold turkey, was the only way for me. Also stopped drinking for a couple of weekends because the last couple of times I tried quitting I fucked up while drunk. I had two homies at school who also quit smoking (but only when we were at school), they're both smoking again now. I used this app called 'kwit' to monitor my behavior and it is very motivating to see how much money I saved and how much cigarettes I havent smoked.
>>721500420 I vaped like others have said. I bought a mixing kit from a place and mixed my own. Started at 6mg/ml and slowly worked my way down to nothing. It cost about 120 total. The liquid lasted a year. By the time it was up I was off nicotine. No withdrawal. I still crave it, it's been about a year. Smoked for about 20 years
>>721501863 Kangertech Top Box Mini =60 bucks. A pack of extra coils =15 bucks(they will last you about 2 months), A battery, Samsung or LG 18650, 2500 MaH= 10 bucks. Juice from VapeWild.com, super cheap, good quality
>>721502265 For some reason being high works for me. I haven't had a cig for 2 days and when I crave one I just take a dab and I'm good. seriously, invest in a vape, if you set it up right it's indistinguishable from cigs, same head rush but no smoke
>>721500420 I made a decision to quit. Accepted that the following days would be uncomfortable. Allowed the cravings to happen and pass without smoking. Made quitting the focus of my life: read about it, listened to self-hypnosis tapes, went to a Nicotine Anonymous meeting and got their literature...
Seriously: if I can do it, you can do it. I fucking loved cigarettes. Two packs of Camels/day.
>>721502412 To say someone is a loser, for NOT smoking cigarettes... well that's a special kind of retarded. i believe that's what a hater would say. you know, someone who sucks at life, and hates to see anyone improve themselves, because it reminds you what a failure you are. You're see through, my dude
>>721500961 They aren't the same. Cigs are all about no hassle. You got a lighter and a pack, one flick done. With a vaporizer you have to worry about batteries, juice, coils, cotton, and even possible electrical settings. All that matched up against the ease of pull a cig then light. The smoke is more satisfying, earthy. Life aint so great a gift you need to hoard every second like a jew.
>>721502437 Oh I've already quit smoking cigarettes. I just know I couldn't do it your way. I actually quit smoking weed for a year because I didn't like it without cigs. Definitely blaze it here and there now though.
>>721500420 I made a simple decision that after smoking for eighteen years I didn't want to do it anymore. So I stopped buying cigarettes and cigars, changed some of my daily routine to avoid the habitual smoking tendencies: i.e. no morning cigarette, not smoking while talking on the phone, no last cigarette before bed.
If someone offered me a cigarette I would politely decline.
It boils down to willpower and sticking with the decision to not smoke. I haven't had a tobacco product in about two years now.
>>721503100 I vaped to quit and now I don't do anything. If quitting smoking feels like getting kicked in the balls, I'll take an alternative approach and not feel like I've been shoed in the nuts for a month. Nicotine is addictive as a motherfucker. I don't care how you quit, if you want to quit and you find a way it work for you then you win. If you can do it and not feel like shit, all the better.
>>721503742 Vaping isn't healthy it's a better alternative than cigs but it's not some miracle drug. Any substance other than air entering the lungs is unhealthy. But you mouth fedoras love saying its healthy.
>>721502333 Thank you very much for the details, you and taking with diligent and knowledgeable friends all point to kanga stuff. Going to take the dive. I just need something reliable, durable, and palatable. This slow drain of life and funds must stop, or at least convert. Thank you.
Smoked Weed/tabacco for 5-7 years. Quit 3 days ago. Is all cool man just bored af and i cant fucking sleep. I dont smoke tabacco either now. Pick yourself a motivation, mine is health, sports, also white teeth. If you mature youll see things clearer. I also stopped on sugar etc. Things just bad for ya. If you want to smoke do something else like chewing gum.
>>721500420 This is how it happened for me. Let me say this also before I start. I knew I would never stop smoking. I enjoy smoking tobacco. Just like i enjoy a good cup of coffee, tobacco can be really enjoyable. I smoked a shit ton of pall mall reds, about a pack or more a day. Then i switched over to american spirits. still smoked like crazy. It actually effected my job and performance because i needed to step out for a smoke break. So, my dad..a 40 year smoker started vaping..it seemed weird to me...fuck a electric cig, sucking on weird juice. So my dad upgraded his set up and gave me his old one...kinda dicked around with it for awhile, but still smoked. The moment came for me is when my boss offered me a promotion and mentioned i would not be able to step out for cig breaks. I said alright. I thought about it and all I was really addicted to was nicotine. So i vaped...said fuck it and did it with that in mind. I did it for like 3 weeks or so...then started smoking again because i couldnt afford juice or something and it was a quick fix. Got paid and bought a nice set up for myself. Also SHIT finding a juice that you like is key, well for me anyway. I hated that fruity shit. I liked the more robust flavored e-juices. It was really helpful psychologically. So yeah after that i stuck with vaping only. I will enjoy a cig every now and then but its just less and less. I smoked a few times and it was fucking gross....made me feel like shit and weird. Sometimes it feels good, so idk. The thing i have noticed is...my smell and taste did highten, and i do save money in the long run. Dont really notice anything else besides being called a vape fag. I dont really care though.
>>721504529 It's a stupid stoner inside joke. Though I guess you could argue, if you use the bottom of the lighter to pack in a half spent bowl the ash will stain the bottom and be evidence you smoke weed. Not that anyone who doesn't already smoke weed would even notice. As I said silly stoner make believe.
>>721504401 Ha, yeah. Me and a buddy were talking about doing it. Idk though, I dont have much free time and supposedly it wouldnt be as high quality as the stuff i currently use...it does seem interesting though. Learning how to make it.
>>721504123 It's a yellow lighter thats bad juju, faggot. Everyone knows that
Got 2 evod e-cigs (so they would ideally never both be dead) got extra coils and started with juice at 18mg nicotine. Puffed as often as i wanted. Every 2 weeks went down 2 mg with the juice. At about 4 mg i realized i was barely using the e cigs anymore and was done after that.
>>721504998 Go to liquidbarn. Get there starter kit online with the mixing equipment and the fluid and flavors. There are apps and programs that will tell you what amount of what to mix for the results you want. Anybody can do it. It's easy.
>>721500420 I've been smoking on and off for 5 years now and I've yet to become "addicted". I started smoking socially in college and then moved on to 2-3 cigarettes a day. I never smoked out of a need or a craving, but just because it felt good. I smoke cigarettes like eating pizza. Its something enjoyable but I don't NEED to eat pizza all the time.
My parents were always really strict about smoking so I hide it from them when I go home for the holidays/vacations. Thats when I realized I could go months without smoking without feeling a single craving. Its just not something I need.
I tell people this and they all say "You say that now, but in a few years, you'll be smoking 2 packs a day, watch." Yet, to this day, 5 years later, I still only smoke probably... 12 cigarettes a week at most.
Currently going through an off period with cigarettes; haven't had one in 4 months. Mostly because cigarettes are expensive as fuck here in NYC and I haven't had a chance to drive over to Pennsylvania for cheap cigs.
Anyone else smoke regularly without really becoming "addicted"?
>>721500420 well what i did is a bit complicated. after 8 years of a pack a day i just stopped. i was irritable for about a week but other than that it was okay. i just started paying for gas at the pump and stopped shopping at grocery stores that sold smokes to help fight the impulse.
>>721505599 Maybe its a conspiracy...because bics are "expensive". I can only talk for myself but bics are the way to go...super durable and they seem to last longer then those shitty ass dollar lighters. I will buy those though if i have to.
Worked up to two packs a day and smoked for about 5 years.
Was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, nicotine raises blood sugar 30% or so. Bought a vape and worked the nic level down every few weeks until I was at 0%. Still vape occasionally but only when I'm hanging out with friends who're still smokers for the social aspect of it but otherwise the addiction is over for me. Still randomly crave it, but hitting the vape satiates that.
BG under control, can breathe better... noticed a difference in breathing within a week of switching to vapor. Also didnt stink of smoke all the fucking time. I know it gets a bad rap, and people who vape "competitively" or whatever are cringey fucks, but it's helped me a lot.
>>721506100 I also think regular cigarettes taste like ass so I mostly smoke menthol cigarettes like a teenaged girl. That and I have a Dutch friend who sometimes mails me packs of flavored Lucky Strikes (pic related)
>>721506014 No you're absolutely right. Others always seem to break long before the fuel runs out. I've even had those shirty see-through lighters blow up in my hand trying to cash out a bowl. Someone should make a half way decent lighter and under cut bics Jew ass
>>721506570 Are you serious? I know the difference between keeping it in my mouth and actually inhaling. When I'm doing smoke tricks with friends I blow out the smoke without inhaling for bigger clouds, otherwise I inhale it, nicotine buzz and everything. The only one blowing smoke right now is you, buddy.
>>721506626 l never started on those high quality smokes, probably a good thing l didn't, as l quit cigs they began to taste worse and worse and then l didn't even feel like finishing the full cigarettes so l just quit all together. Makes sense you're smoking the leisure cigs
1. isolate yourself from all people who smoke or exhibit behavior that causes enough stress to want you to smoke 2. avoid any and all location wrought with smokers, which pretty much means just go to work, come home, that's it. >honestly, if small things can trigger your cravings then you're hopeless and you won't stop until you're missing teeth and a part of your fuckin throat. 3. eat healthier, celery, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, watermelon, melon, apples, oranges (at least one per day), peaches, plums, cherries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, bananas, lemons, limes, chickpeas, beans, ANY AND ALL NUTS (walnuts, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, ect). 4. EXERCISE - (K)No(w) pain, (K)no(w) gain 5. Avoid sex and don't masturbate for a few years (science) 6. Avoid all relationships - Any 12 stepper trying to kick the hard shit, will tell you that one of the hardest things to do is deal with the urge to use while you're forced to deal with someone who's pushing your buttons, and nobody pushes your buttons better than someone you CHOOSE to keep in your company and constantly interact with. If you CHOOSE to return to those people after you've rid yourself of your affliction then so be it but do not fool yourself into thinking that it's wise to try and deal with people who have the ability to cause you stress while you're attempting to rid yourself of your most reliable salvation from it. 7. Channel your time and focus into things that are productive and will distract from what you'd rather be doing. Build something, make something, write something, fix something, cook something. FIND SOMETHING TO DO.
>>721501251 Suboxane..... >cure... You're fucking obviously talking outta your ass you dip. That stuff is just another version of death.. next time just don't post when you're really not too sure about what yer talkin' about m8y.
>>721500420 Chantix. It worked for me. Some people complain about nightmares. But what they really mean is intense dreams. I'm kinda pervy, so I really enjoyed my twisted dreams and actually looked forward to them.
Nonsmoker but I'm on a med that has intense dreams/nightmares as a (uncommon) side effect that hits me hard. My brain and body adjusted for it over time though -- I have to take that med permanently -- so now the intense dreams are rare and I don't panic.
But Chantix is only for the duration you're quitting, right? No big deal, and while you'll have the occasional nightmare, it's not the same as a night terror, and the other intense dreams can be quite trippy -- just don't panic.
No need to worry anon, you're already a young retard. Enjoy smelling like shit everywhere you go... probably aren't much different from those old guys who shit their pants anyway... same level of shitty smell.
>>721500420 I just fucking stopped. Nobody I hang around with likes the smell and it's difficult to be a closet smoker. I replaced the habit for a while with chew (pouches) but gradually just stopped buying it because I knew it was bad for my teeth and mouth.
Been tobacco/nicotine free for 6 months and haven't had a cigarette in almost a year. Still get cravings but have no intention of starting again.
A doctor that I am friends with told me that in his many years of work the most effective way of quitting (long term too, not just one vice for another/etc) was this:
Start conditioning yourself to only smoke ON THE HOUR, no matter what. If it's 2:01, then you wait until 3, and if it's 3:50 then you wait ten minutes. Light up ON THE HOUR. You might smoke less than before, you might even smoke more; the important thing is that you start to have some semblance of mental fortitude against the nicotine.
Then once that's easy for you, start smoking every other hour (he told me on even hours, but does that matter? idk my bff jill)
basically once that gets easy either quit from there or go for every three hours and so on and so forth. I gotta fuckin' quit, I'm way too broke and way too young to start my third year.
quit almost 2 yrs ago. smoked for 10+ years, i wasn't a big smoker, i only got to 2 packs/week at the end when i was working a stressful job. i did it with e cigs, vaping is the miracle. i know at least 4 people who've switched or quit completely through e-cigs.
whoever says that quitting is a state of mind, or that it's easy, wtv, they are just trolls. those people don't know the power of addiction. i've been to rehab twice in my life, i've seen people whose lives were destroyed by addiction. if you have never tried to quit something and not been able to, then you just don't know what you're talking about. quitting smoking is one of the hardest habits to beat. i've talked to ex- heroin addicts who swear that quitting heroin was easier then cigs.
>>721515268 well I used to hide it from my girlfriend and my family and stuff. I'd smoke when out with my friends or doing other shit. I used to like to smoke in my car while driving and doing errands and stuff and the smell of cigarettes just sticks to everything.
>>721515901 it's why I started, but I'd rather make an exit bag than die of a stroke or cancer slowly in 15-20 years. My mom just had her left side paralyzed from multiple strokes about a year ago, trust me you do NOT want someone else wiping your ass for you.
