I've smoked on and off for about 20 years. It's been 5 weeks since I quit cold turkey. I did they same as someone else that posted, I said for the first two weeks I didn't have to work out and could eat what I wanted. I found peanuts in the shell helped, because it kept my hands busy! I also drank a TON of water, anytime I had a craving...chug chug chug! I have tried e-cigs in the past but found that eventually they didn't feel like a cigarette any more, if that makes sense. So I would start bumming, then give in and buy my own. I've quit for a year before so I know it's possible!! Just know whatever route you take it will be difficult and I feel like there will always be that want for one. You can do it!

No vaping. Quit smoking November 2017. Still crave a cig when something bad happens that causes me increased anxiety from stress.

I do vape not to give up smoking, I just like it. I also know dozens people who substituted nicotine on e-cigarettes rather successfully, they usually hang at a special forum ( www.vapingforums.com/ ) and share their stories online.

I quite smoking about 12 years ago (can't believe I no longer count in days) - didn't go the vap route to get there but went with the patch until I could handle it on my own. Had to give myself permission to gain 10 pounds when I quit with the commitment to taking it off again after one year smoke free. It worked but I say - whatever works for you - do it (and congrats)!

hi, I quit smoking about 6 years ago with the help of e-cigarettes! I could not have done it without them, believe me I tried everything from champix tablets to patches mints and gum. I have gradually decreased the nicotine strength over the years I started at 18 sometimes higher and am now on 3mg. its a long process but mainly because I enjoy doing it. It can be expensive dependant on how often you use it but you're in control. When I first began using the e-cig devices I would switch between smoking and vaping but now I am using 100% vapour.
