    My personal experience with letting go of the smokes... I will say.. It was hard man..Untill one morning.....

    Most importantly... You MUST want to quit..
    The 1st week is rough... Keep your mind on the end goal... You will breathe better... Smell will return...sleep better.. Feel more alive in the mornings... And many more positive things to come from it.

    Start with a 6mg... Hit that thing as much as you need to...

    Find the correct flavor... Something with ice usually helps with the throat hit along with the nic level.

    I relapsed a few times in trying to quit using a vape... Don't feel bad if you do... I went down from a pack a day.. To 10...then 5... It took me 2 months to completely leave the smokes... Untill i just woke up one morning... 02h32 coughing insanely... Looking at my girlfriend sleeping next to me... I asked myself .. " do you want to leave her behind.. Because you are to weak to just QUIT SMOKING. . MAKE UP YOUR DAMN MIND BROTHER TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR YOU!!!" that was the time i completely stopped .. And every time i got a craving to smoke... I grabbed my vape vaped it.. And thought of that morning.

    Leave your cash at home... It burns the pocket to buy smokes.

    This was my experience and way to quit.... Thinking of my loved ones...

    Just make the decision... And STICK to it... Its the only way.... Yes i dont sugarcoat.

    Stay strong and keep the chin up! :campeon:

    Congratulations @Morix on quitting, and I agree with your sentiments, you must want to quit, most important part.

    I could not climb 14 steps to my office without resting on the landing, 18 months later that only happens if it’s the 15th or 20 th time I do it, for that I blame the grey in my beard. The most important part is that one day at a time, and to repeat as many times as possible.

    Many happy clouds to you!

    Wait, what? Paging @Caramia to have my back here - horse dust and stables smell waaaay better. Hell even horses smell awesome!

    I rather have a guy smelling like sweaty horse dust after grooming the horses than smelling of cigarettes.

    :D

    'Tis true:), and being present on farrier (especially in summer:happy::whew:) - and vet days (both of these are real eye candy, and makes up for the flat wallet).

    my personal advice for someone who wants toe quit is this

    1 - a vape is a tool, just like a hammer, you don't buy a hammer, toss it down next to a nail, go somewhere, come back and expect the nail to be nailed in place, same with a vape, you still have to do the work, a vape just makes it easier.
    2 - vape where you don't smoke, or where you don't want to smoke, in the house, in the car. etc. and then, make "smoking Places" less and less, and 'vaping places" more and more
    3 - have a support system, be it friends, the wife/husband, even the kids can help.
    4 - HAVE ENOUGH BATTERIES!! nothing makes you grab a stinky like a flat battery.
    5 - get your mind right, if you buy a vape and tell yourself "OK, lets try this to see if it works", leave the store, you're about to waste money. vapes work, its people who don't really want it to work. ie, see rule no 1, maybe this should be rule no 1... oh well.

    What I did to quit after 10 years of smoking:

    Timed my last cigarette to be in the evening before I went to bed. Put my twisp on charge and got the twisp 18mg juice ready. Decided in my head the next morning it was all I had seeing that my cigarretes were finished.

    Woke up the next morning and prepped my twisp. Vaped on it and it satisified my need for nicotine and it is the closest simulation of a cigarette, which helped a lot. And that's it.

    Never give a smoker a vape with loads of airflow and flavors to quit with, it's not what they are used to. You just set them up for failure. They need tobacco flavored juice, high nic and a MTL device with low maintenance.
