    Just a heads-up and request for support. I quit for 7 months, then last hear August, a colleague went to Australia and I got his job. At his farewell I was running a 0.2 Ohm build on a mech and people complained about the clouds. So stupid me took a stinky. Been smoking weekends and evenings since then. It has gradually gotten worse, and weekends a hardly vape. 1 January it is D-day again. Feeling my health deteriorating again. Chest pains, shortness of breath, burning legs when climbing stairs etc. Hold thumbs I can kick the stinkies again completely

    Hi bud you need to be strong those dam cigs ate like crack sticks and the addiction is real.

    You need to prepare your mind and be mentally strong.
    You can have all the kit in the world but if you not in the right mind frame its gonna be a constant battle.

    Cigs are like any drug addiction once you rehabilitate yourself you cannot touch a single one.

    Ive been in your situation 3 years ago when i quit back then and one day went out and said its only one cig that weekend i landed up buying a box and downhill again from there.

    Have you ventured into juice diy?
    You need to find stuff through vape that will keep you and your vape connected for me its like a bond.

    Vape on brother...

    Two and a half years off the stinkies, and two years on ecigssa.

    I have left a few packs of cigarettes lying around to remind myself of the 35 years of smoking.

    I think that the main reason that I have stayed off the stinkies so easily, and for so long, is that it has become a hobby...minor obsession and way of life. I spend hours researching the next buy (far more expensive than smoking) and new developments. I also spend hours on this forum, although I don't contribute much. I am more of an observer than a talker. I am also a grumpy old man and don't want to offend anyone in my posts.:-@ I make my own coils and diy juice. This adds to the appeal of vaping as there is something new to learn almost every day.

    My thanks to all the moderators who keep the forum so interesting and smooth running. I have particular respect for @Silver who always presents a balanced view, never boasts, always concerned about newbies, etc.etc.

    Congrats! Two and a half years off the smokes is almost as epic as two years of visiting ECIGSSA!

    If it makes you feel better, I'm a grumpy young man, and I can't wait till I've aged a bit so people simply roll their eyes and walk away when I rage at them, at the moment they have the cheek to argue back and I don't like it. :-D

    I didn't even notice that I'd hit and passed the 1 year stinking free goal post!
    It's been an incredible journey getting to a full year without back peddling, only made better by my interactions with fellow vapers on this great platform.
    Wooohoooo time for a drink! Not that I needed a reason to drink...

    1 year down, the rest of my life to go.

    Jip, up that nic, especially on those tobaccos. I like mine around 15 mg for tobaccos nowadays. Personally I would have no scruples at all to up my nic should the need arise. Nic per se is in the same class as caffeine. Anyhow, I am convinced that higher nic and lower power is the better way of vaping.

    Congrats from one grumpy old man to another. I have a whole carton to remind me of my 80 a day habit for around 38 years.

    Still closed in its original plastic film! I threaten to frame it every now and then to HRH's consternation!

    Today is my one year anniversary off cigarettes. I'm glad to say I made a complete clean break. I didn't decrease my cigarette consumption while increasing my vaping. I just quit straight cold turkey, then started vaping about a month later. So cigarette smoke has not passed my lips for a whole year, yay.
