Hi I am new to this forum although I smoked my last cig on 17th March So not on day 1 I am sure I can benefit from joining this forum and also help other quitters. I turned 71 on Sunday, having smoked since my mid twenties, I guess I really am breaking the habit of a lifetime. As most smokers I have had several attempts at stopping, this time I feel is my last chance to quit so I am determined to beat it this time. I live in Spain where cigs are relatively cheap but NRT is ridiculously expensive so I am having a go with the pen type refillable ecig where I can regulate the amount of nicotine I use. I know the jury is out on these things, but at the moment it is definitely working for me, I have had no major craves nor any of the other feelings I have had when quitting in the past so I think I will stick with it for a while. I already feel better, can breathe without wheezing. My hubby doesn't smoke so that helps when at home, but most of my friends are smokers and life here in Spain is very social, so I have to be around smokers or be a hermit.
