    30 year smoker here that just quit smoking for the 3rd time, but this time around I'm vaping to replace the smoking behavior. The prior two times, I just ended up gaining weight, and the nicorette patches and gum never worked.

    I was never a heavy smoker, and carton would last me almost two weeks, and I would buy my cigarettes from an Indian store from the nearby reservation ($31 for a carton of Seneca Menthols). But I did enjoy smoking, combined with cheap cigarettes, I was reluctant to try and quit again. I had tried an e-cigarettes before in 2007, one of those cheap cigalikes, but they did nothing for me, and the vaping experience was terrible and not even close to smoking and just made me cough. I tried again this year and bought one of those Vue e-cigarettes at a local gas station and once again no bueno.

    After seeing different looking devices on the internet, I decided to do a little research and found that the technology has improved a lot and was hoping a device producing a lot more vapor would help me quit. I started out with a Kangertech dripbox and then bought a Smok Alien 220 with baby beast tank. Now, I've been vaping for over a month now and it looks like this attempt will be more successful than the previous attempts. I get the full lung hit and throat hit with these mods/kits, which is a lot better than the cigalikes.

    Thanks, I'm hopeful I can quit for good this time without the weight gain. The longest I quit before was 6 months.

    I've lost count of how many times/methods I tried to quit. Vaped and smoked (dual using) for awhile. Only started vaping to save money. Never intended to quit smoking. Before I knew it I was only lighting up 1st thing in the morning. One day just didn't buy another pack. First couple of weeks waking up and remembering no cig was hard. All good now. Hang in there. Come chat with us when you need to.
