    Easy.

    I use vape. After that I lose appetite to smoke. It feels disgusting.

    I use vaping for about 2 years, then I slwly reduce my intake, like 1-2 every 1 hour, I get bored with vaping after that.
    And i just quit vape.

    I stop vape for about few weeks, meet my friend, he still smoke, i tried to smoke again, i got migraine few hours later.

    And that's the last time i ever smoke/vape till now. Almost 1 years of qutting both.

    Now i got zero craving even my friend smoke or vape in front of me.

    I smoke cigs daily for 10 years and vaping for about 2 years.

    I dont think its hard.

    You not gonna get withdrawal like PAWS, depression, muscle ache, anxiety, RLS, vomiting like other heavy drug does.

    Plus, nicotine dint give me euphoria at all. Just few second of rush/buzz. Does not even worth it. Now i just chew bubble gum or biting tooth pick when i'm bored.

    Vaporizer + 18mg Nicotine vape juice. Can't really say it's quitting, but I personally believe that Vapes are a lot better than cigarettes. With that said, none of them are healthy for you.

    Interesting! I also smoked for 10 years before going to vape, however I can't stop vaping. I use 18-24mg nicotine juice and smoke frequently. But I think it would be easier to go cold turkey on vape, than cigarettes. Seems like you can confirm that.

    And I agree, cigarettes are gross now, I really prefer vaping for "ingesting" nicotine.

    My grandad is still alive at 91 as smoked like a camel for his whole life.

    I'm not saying do it, though. I still think it's extremely expensive + waste of time.

    However it is a nice social thing to do. It brings people together if you think of it.

    But yeah don't do it.

    Vape maybe?

    man can stop mention Vape .......my country ban it bro. If can Now I vaping while typing .

    Yea I saw some old folks already 80+ or so , still smoke , still look " ok " in the sense they can walk but slow of course without any aid .

    in fact my dad got tell me buy cigarettes bring in the nursing home let him smoke. I say can't/ . I actually want o. that time I already know he will never able to come back home again . I actually want to buy let him smoke aka his wish .
    but can't of course inside nursing home. I even think of bring him out , nearby the nursing home let him have some puff , well no need to talk about it since he gone.

    My dad actually can " still alive " he is stubborn on medication. If he regularly take despite he still smoke is hard to say
    maybe he still can alive for some years at least.

    Some folks even claim those elderly who smoke , you cannot just cold turkey for them or else they will get even worst. etc.

    I don't know . Perhaps just a myth , but base on doc side , He told me my dad lungs already can't be help , got water inflection etc

    still kinda miss my dad ., now only me and my mum.

    get the nicorette mist spray if they're available in your country, anytime you get the urge just have a couple of sprays under the tongue, works magic for me.
    I'd tried cold turkey, nicotine patches, nicotine gum, hypnotherapy, nothing worked.
    I did vape for a bit and did enjoy it but I do find it to be a bit too addictive in itself, the nicotine spray though, it's instant relief. well worth spending your money on.

    I smoked for 15 years and when I decided to quite I was smoking 3-4 packs a day. Yes, I said 3-4 packs a DAY. I took Chantix for 2 weeks to help me get off of them. But the Chantix did nothing to help me overcome the mental addiction. For over a week I came up with 100's of ideas for how I could "just smoke one". But I didn't, I toughed it out. It was by far the hardest thing I have ever done. Moving forward I knew I could never smoke another cigarette, not one. That was 12 years ago.

    If I did it anyone can. You just need to get past the withdrawal which is HELL.

    I was hard smoker for 15+ years and manage to quit cold turkey without any problems at all. Like next day I was sitting and wonder why I don't need a cigarette. Not only I quit smoking, but coffe as well, same day (I associate coffee with cigarettes so was pointless to continue drinking coffee)

    How it happened:
    A friend of mine told me that I am like low life junky, that I prefer to spend money on tobacco instead of food (money was really short back then) etc - it get me so pissed (mostly because was true) that I said to myself (and her) "Who is junky? Me? Tomorrow ill be no longer smoking". For my uber surprise next day I had no desire at all to smoke. Now how the fuck this happened? I tried quiting a million times and never worked, now I was scratching my head why I don't need to smoke.

    What I found out (by this personal experience) that decisions you make when you are in high emotional distress tend to get "imprinted" in your brain and sticks. So I test it with other stuff and it worked for me, every time. What I did it start imagining situations that I know will pump my adrenaline sky high and get me pissed as hell and then says to myself "I no longer do this", "I no longer care about her" (no shit I heal a broken hearth this way), right before going to bed. Sleep over it and next day you are new person. Oh and brush your teeth immediately after you eat. Toothpaste remove the need to smoke after eating.

    Now thats my story, and thats what worked for me. Go, try it, you have nothing to lose.

    To quit smoking, you need to have a pneumothorax (google it) - it will take a few days with a tube into you and two months recovery. If you smoke in this time, your pain will be excruciating.

    I was talking about you to quit smoking. You need something like pneumothorax - isn't nothing related with water ... - and you will quit smoking for good.

    I used to smoke a pack in 2 days 3 years ago. Whenever I smoked a cigarette, I always told myself that there will be a time which I need to stop. I love traveling and it helped me to break routines. I generally smoke less during tours. Once I come back, I cut down at least one or 2 cigarettes. I don't only try. I just do it. No matter what.

    ex - I smoked, 4 cigarettes per day, and I only smoke 3 after the tour. Don't go over 3 no matter what. If I feel really hard, I have a very hard espresso. (Coffee did help me through the process.)

    Also I snuffed tobacco. (Which is not recommended because it could be harmful to your mouth and teeth. But I did that because I have kept myself a word. didn't want to smoke instead)

    Exercises also helped. A little bit of it does not make any sense. I do run for at least 20 minutes. (till i run out of my breath, and then a little bit more. (just pushing myself))

    There are nicotine tablet and other products you can buy also. I have never tried them though. but still you can try.

    What I'm saying is that, you have to be tough on yourself and if you love yourself enough, you should cut it down. We all have been there. We all have see ourselves getting tired after a small walk or with a little exercise.

    little confession, I haven't smoked a cigarette for this year. But I might smoke one during my next tour after a shot of whiskey or two. (a little treat for not smoking =D)
