hi - I am 52 and essentially a life long smoker. The hard core type, that even having a stroke in December did not stop me. Now on day 31. I am using a vape to quit. I am pretty sure I couldn't succeed cold turkey. The vape is a crutch that gets me through the cravings. Yes, I still crave a lot but not as intensely as the first week. I used 12mg nicotine liquid until 2 days ago when I dropped to 10mg, so really feeling the progress. I smell better and have stopped coughing in bed. In fact, I kinda thought I would cough more and get rid of whatever lurks in my lungs. That hasn't happened as yet. I do have lots of spots though, on my face, neck, shoulders and chest mostly. Lots of the buggers. Horrible. I guess it's the toxins leaving me. I am drinking green tea and organic honey each day to help with the cleansing - I read somewhere they help. Who knows.
