    I quit smoking about a year ago by using a vape device. About 6 months after that I quit vaping and bought a Juul. I still use the Juul to this day. It does satisfy my cravings and is a bit cheaper than smoking cigarettes.
    I’m not saying you should get a Juul instead of quitting smoking but, it worked for me.
    Eventually I may put down the Juul.

    I’ve also been sober since June 24th 2018 so, cigarettes/ vaping is the least of my worries.

    Well....

    Not a complete success. But I have only smoked 3 cigarettes since I started this thread. I haven't smoked one since yesterday morning. I'm confident I'll kick this.

    :fingerscrossed:

    One of the hardest parts of quitting is figuring out what to do with your hands. Much of the addiction is psychological and if you replace the psychological part with something else, quitting becomes easier. Try pen twirling.

    I quit by vaping for a month and reduced the nicotine (I had my wife switch to lower juice without me knowing about it)

    After 30 days she told me I dont have any nicotine in my juice and havent in three days.

    I set it down and never looked back.

    This is good advice. My dad used to dip when I was little, and after realizing just how disgusting it was, he quit. He said the only way he could curb the urge was to chew on something, so he started chewing on tooth picks or straws. He hasn't dipped in 25 years or so, and he doesn't need to chew on anything anymore.

    You can do it!! The first day of the rest of your life!!
    My dad quit cold turkey in his 50’s after docs told him his asthma was returning. I think his stopping helped him live longer had he not stopped!

    Great decision, as you can see by all the comments you won't regret it. You never hear anyone say they wished they didn't quit right !?! Plus you can put the massive pile of cash you are gonna save aside for mods and use that for motivation! I quit about 25 years ago when I had bronchitis for 2 weeks...when I recovered I thought why go back, the hard part is over. I also cut down on drinking for while as well because for me those two things went hand and hand.
    I also knew someone that struggled while quitting and what he did is put a thick rubber band on his wrist and whenever he was having the urge he'd pull it back about 8 inches and let it rip, it worked for him. I think I'd go with the patch it if really gets tough, best of luck!! :thumbsup:

    The hardest time I've had so far, is at work. When it gets slow at night sometimes, it gets boring as hell. Thanks for all the encouragement. I'll get through this.

    Those are the times you can start making that long list of mods for the Tundra, could be a wish list of sorts.
    All that money you'd be saving from not buying smokes, gotta put it to good use :cheers:

    I am a food addict. Part of overcoming is just controlling the ACT of eating. Chew slow and savor the flavor, which before it was always nom nom nom, want it all now!
    Get busy with being busy, it will help!

    Yeah, but less to line up, therefore easier TO line up. Only place I've seen the Pyramix is ebay, I mastered it in Jr.High... :anonymous:

    Quit 12 years ago on Halloween! Craziest 2 weeks of my life...had big time withdraw but got thru it. Stop drinking for 6 months to make sure I didn’t have something that would lure me back. Your body will feel the difference once you quit and it’s one of the best decisions I made. (Really had no choice, wife gave me a ultimatum) good luck

    Proud of you @easleycrawler . The thing is.... YOU have to be ready. If not, you're just fooling yourself. Sound's like you're ready:muscleflexing:. You got this!!!! Your mind is a powerful witness to survival/denial. I was nagged for around 20 years and stopped when I was ready. I had to be ready. Nothing and nobody could make me stop until I was ready.
