After a couple years of talking about it, I finally did it.

I bought a ZMax vapor wand and ViVi Nova tank, and have been 100% smoke free for two months. The vapor method is pure water vapor with flavor and nicotine. I've been stepping down my nicotine level and have already cut it by 75%.

Anyone looking to quit but still want the experience, I highly recommend getting a ZMax kit.

My cardio doubled and I breathe so much better. Just wish they made something like this to substitute for Copenhagen.
 
Did you just go all "Thank You For Smoking" on us?
 
i just quit cold turkey a few months back. a handful of slip ups when i was drunk, but other than that i've cut the habit. still hard as fuck but i'm getting used to it.
 
Congrats and great way to start the new year. I quit 2 years ago and was one of the best decisions I've made. Keep it up and get past the first 90 days and it smooth sailing from there. Although the cravings will always be there every so often, just make sure to not give in. I recommend staying away from booze for the time being. And get a lot of gum, sunflower seeds and toothpicks.

And by the way, throw away the vape. Fuck nicotine.
 
Can a smoker explain why they started smoking and why they continued smoking? Like what are the benefits? Honestly smoking has got the be the most retarded thing to start doing known to man, at least crack gets you high.
 
Congrats and hang in there.

I've witnessed my brother and friends of mine quit many times only to start again couple of weeks or months later.
 
Congrats Cody, hopefully you can completely eliminate the nicotine from your life altogether soon enough.

At one time I smoked and took a very casual, liberal attitude about when and where I wanted to do it. Now I despise smokers, become upset when I encounter them in public or elsewhere and want absolutely nothing to do with that nasty habit. Definitely a complete 180 from previous era's in life.

Keep up the good work brother, it will put more money in your pocket and you'll live a healthier existence.
 
Right on man. I'm off the smoke (occasional cig, no cravings for cigs though) and on the nic vapor too. My lungs are so much healthier. Went for a run & swim on the beach a few weeks back and didn't cough once afterward, felt amazing. Nicotine is still bad, but smoke-free is a big step.

for me it started off as a social thing. when i would go drinking, at least half of my friends would be smokers and they would have to go outside to smoke. so we would usually all wind up outside together and that coupled w/ being drunk caused me to start smoking. it gives you a big head rush in the beginning if you're not used to it, but it goes oh so well with the alcohol. when not drinking, a cigarette is a good use to just go outside and take a timeout for a few minutes. it can also be a social thing if you work w/ smokers. you can't just go up to people and be like, "Hey, yall wanna go outside and chew some gum?"

I pretty much always smoke when I'm out drinking.

Yet I've never had the urge to go and buy a pack when I'm not.
 
Once when I was drunk a French guy asked me if I wanted a cigarette. Being the "france is sooo cool' hipster I was freshman year, I was like fuck yea I'll take one.

Then I smoked a few more over the next few weekends. Then got a pack and smoked like one a day. Eventually one night smoked too many (10+) while drunk and after that smoked half a pack a day.

I find that if I go one night where I smoke more than the normal amount for me I will go a few days smoking that amount before I realize it and consciously cut down.

It's a great excuse to "get some fresh air", and social smoking is quite relaxing, at least emotionally and socially. Takes your mind off problems. Mastering the inhalation is fun in itself, training your throat and lungs to take the smoke. And, especially at first, there's nothing so satisfying as a smoke after a big meal when you are a new smoker. Gives you a nice buzz.

Much of that goes away by the time you're up to half a pack a day or so, and it's just misery from there on out.
 
Had a buddy cold turkey on his habit; did it for his daughter.

that only happens 6 months to a year after you quit, otherwise it's placebo.
 
You should celebrate this achievement with a fine cigar.
