I haven't introduced myself yet so I'll do that in this thread too. I smoked on and off for 9 years (from the age of 11 to 20) and have attempted quitting so many times that I have lost count! Sometimes I lasted months, other times I lasted just a few days.
Personally, I don't think my issue is the nicotine addiction. I am 22 days in and all I really miss is the ritual of smoking. Going outside, lighting up and inhaling those nasty chemicals. It's almost like a mourning process for me right now. I associate everything with smoking.
The problem is, this is how I usually end up losing my quit, because I never stop longing for one more cigarette. Just one, which turns into two and then a packet. This has got me thinking, should I maybe try 'vaping'? Or would that just be another bad habit? Obviously I'd use 0mg liquid.
I just want to stop thinking about cigarettes completely. I want to feel like a non-smoker, but I don't, I feel it's only a matter of time before I break and I don't want that to happen.
