My Cut Down/Stop Smoking Journey With Totally Wicked

So today is my aim to cut down... cut down so I don't pressure myself too much.

Why?
  • I've started smoking to much
  • I feel it badly on my chest
  • When exercising I don't half feel I'm a smoker
  • I don't enjoy half (if not more) the cigarettes I smoke
  • I smoke ultra lights, most think it's pointless but it's what I am used to... however I agree
  • Its blooming expensive if not disgusting

Before I have tried:
  • Patches
  • Nicorette inhalator
  • Champix
  • e-lite (it was too strong)

I have purchased the Totally Wicked Tornado eGo-C slim electronic cigarette which is filled with e-liquid, strengths are different... right now I have the 11mg, next is 6mg and the lowest. I have decided to avoid the tobacco flavour but if I change my mind I can nip back into town. I have:
  • Menthol
  • Sex on the beach
  • Tutti Frutti
  • Cherry

This afternoon I am just getting use to it. I sat and puffed on the menthol but habit took me to the back door with a normal cigarette and was a bit YUK at the difference. A case of getting used to it and coming away from 'habits' My mind is in the mode so just hope I succeed.

So day 1 I've started half way through between now and bed I'd likely smoke about 20 more *ewww* I have a full 20 pack and I will count before bed.

1 pack of Mayfair fine is 7.25

time will tell ....

Congratulations on your attempt to go smokeless. Good for you! Literally!

I know how hard that is to do. Took me a few attempts before I managed and I still crave it. I brushed my teeth a lot and chewed up a lot of drink straws. The morning one with coffee was what I missed most.

Until you find the right personal vaporizer for your needs it might be trial and error. I felt the same and within the first year I went through at least four different ones before I found what works for me. Same goes with the juices. Vaping and smoking are two entirely different things.

I've done the e-lite before and I liked the idea and cut down in the days I used it but it was too strong for me compared to my cigarettes ... hit that back of my throat like a full strength cigarette so as this goes with habit (to mouth) and had the addictive part of the nicotine I am quite positive along side my mind telling me I need to do this x

Going ok ... Had a leaky problem and confused but ok ATM. Going Togo discuss and see if I'm doing anything wrong.

Longest without a cigarette is 1hr 45mins which is a miracle for me if have one every half hour hence the 40 day habit plus boredom smokes!



Today as I started half day I've saved at least 3.10
