Hi all, I'm coming from a different angle to many I feel.
I have been smoking only an e-cig for nearly 3 years now. Two Christmases ago (I'd been on e-cig only for a few months) I had a flat battery on my e-cig while out socializing. A friend gave me one of his regular cigarettes. I lit it and took a puff, to me it was disgusting! It tasted bad and made me feel sick like the first time I tried a cigarette! One thing stands true, I am off cigarettes, I can't stand the smell (it makes me feel sick) I don't want one! This is a success...
I have looked at it as "smoking on my own terms", in the pub, club anywhere. I don't smell of tobacco, I get on well at the gym. It's cheaper than the equivalent in cigarettes. However, I'm still addicted to nicotine! I'm still putting a white stick in my mouth for that hit (all be it with a nice minty flavor).
I have made up my mind to quit. I'm planning on reducing my nicotine intake over the next few weeks. But struggle to know how I'm going to have the self control.
I'm worried about how moody I can get when cutting out Nicotine. I had a flat battery for 24 hours, 6 months ago and wanted to scream.
I guess I have to use the e-cig like an NRT treatment and understand how to reduce the nicotine intake so that when I do stop, I'm not going to relapse or spend a week ot two wanting to scream at everybody and break anything I see (that was a previous quit story).
Anyone else cutting down on e-cigs?
