    Liquids that have strong/overpowering and or bitter tobacco taste in them are not for me, either. But from time to time I do like to switch to liquids that combine mild/soft sweet tobacco flavors with something else the taste of which I also like, if it gels well together with that... e.g., Sweet Tobaccocino (Beard Vape Co.), and Pistachio RY4 (Charlie Noble), albeit the latter one tastes fairly sweet... which, lucky for me anyway, I tend to like... and in fact I find that mixing that one with Emerald (E-Phoenix) also works. (Mixing cappucino with fruit juice didn't seem to work, though. :oops: )

    Yeah, right with ya on that -- when I was looking for something similar to the taste of my cigarettes, anything "pipe-tobacco-ish" grossed me right out -- such as "Blu" e-cigarettes! -- but now I actually DIY a cherry-vanilla pipe tobacco flavor! :giggle: It does have a smoky tobacco presence, but a much sweeter, softer, milder type of tobacco than anything in cigarettes. Same for my Smocha mix; to me, it reminds me of the good ol days when you could smoke in a diner; sit around having coffee or a chocolate malt and so much smoking going on, the air was nearly solid. Till the smoke nazis fucked that up royally! :giggle: I've never gone for any of the RY4 mixes, not a big fan of caramel, but mixing a soft sweet tobacco with a sweet fruit or coffee/chocolate flavor, I still find that pretty tasty. :)

    I started smoking young, I'd sneak cigs with friends at 13 and was buying my own with a fake ID by the time I was 16. I would quit for a few months, a year but would always go back the minute I had a suitable excuse. I tried the gum and patch and was just about to get on chantix before a friend of mine gave a fancy (at the time) cig-a-like. I used that for a couple weeks and quit but started smoking again in less than a month. When I decided to quit again, I bought a ego style pen vape and while it worked better than the cig-a-like, I still didn't give me the satisfaction I was after. It was not until I got my first "real setup", a Kanger subox mini, that I was finally able to quit. Since then I've been through a million different setups but have not been near a cig since.

    The caramel in the Pistachio RY4 is subtle enough for it to be in perfect balance with the other flavors, though. I normally hate caramel even if it's mixed with cream, but in this particular case it just works, at least it did for me when I needed my temporary break away from fruity candy-like flavors last week.

    I decided to quit smoking with the help of electronic cigarettes. I had a crappy V2 cigalike, but after 11 days of cutting down on the cancer sticks (the first cigarette of the day with my coffee was the hardest to quit), I've been cigarette-free for almost 4 1/2 years, without ever having a craving. I can't say that they will work for everyone, but they certainly helped me.

    I smoked for 26 years. I started vaping 5 years ago and haven't even wanted a cig. In fact a puff off my hubs tastes HORRIBLE. I hate the smell of cig smoke now. It worked for me, but it didn't for my hubs. He quit smoking and started vaping same time I did. He did good for about 2 years and then started smoking again. He has no interest in vaping at all now. He enjoys his cigs and wants to keep smoking them.

    I smoked for 20 years. First 2 I grew from 5 to 25 smokes a day... Last 15 I grew from 25 to 60 smokes a day. I would sleep for no more than an hour and a half at a time to smash a smoke or 2.
    My partner has smoked for just as long, she has tried to quit 3 times unsuccessfully.late last year she said to me she would try quit as a New Years resolution. I have children and I swore when my first was born I would quit before her fourth birthday!
    She turns 4 this year and so when my partner mentioned her new year resolution shy of Christmas by about a week and a half I thought fuck! What about vaping? So I anxiously researched and hastily ordered a mod, a tank, some vg& pg and some nicotine!
    By the time nye came I had my mod running and I convinced myself I was never to smoke again. Well with 90mg nic vape who needs a smoke!
    I'm vaping 5mg nic now along with my partner, neither of us has smoked since, we both talk about cravings from time to time when we ell a smoke but we push past that knowing not to let our gaurd down. Truthfully I think I'm stuck vaping now and if I stop I will likely fill it's place with smokes or some other habit far worse. Seems long term training in physical habit activity has had a serious impact on my brains reward center and I'll likely feed that for the rest of my life. F#+k ciggarettes! Vape on!

    Ps. Needing a shit hot mod to quit smoking is one of the most rediculas things I've ever heard. Made me smile but!

    keep it on, you will beat it! Believe yourself!
    I have smoking age of 8 years too, and I'm smoking free for over 4 years till now.
    anyway you can take a try to help you to giving up smoking, certainly e cigarette can also help you, but I think the most important thing is your own determination in your soul!
    Wish you good luck guy!:)

    It helped me quit! I was on 30+ stinkies a day until I picked up my first vape...took me a couple of days to get the draw right, and then boom, overnight I was an ex-smoker. Left 4 stinkies sitting in my old pack, just in case. Got rid of them after a week, cause I didn't need them any more! Now 2 and a half months on, I have 3 pen mods on the go and still loving it. Down to 3mg after starting at 12mg, and not desperate to have a vape in the morning like I was with a cig. Vaping is a viable way to stop smoking. The idiot governments across the world need to follow in our footsteps...they're legalising nic based ejuice here very soon AND our PM is looking into subsidising starter kits for those who want to quit smoking. At this rate, New Zealand will reach it's goal of being smokefree by 2025!

    Given that NZ is a progressive nation, for the most part, it's good to see they're following the correct path regarding vaping. So, that makes two sensible countries so far. Only 190 to go.

    Hey Zer!
    Frankly vaping didn't help me to quit but it did help me to stay off ciggies after I quit.
    Be strong, you can do it.

    if you get a decent vaporizer, and some high nicotine content juice, you most certainly wont be smoking cigarettes. If its strong enough to make a pack a day smoker feel light headed you just wont crave ANY nicotine for a while. After a few weeks of the vape your senses come back and you realize how awful the cigarettes taste, as well as they will feel weak compared to your stronger vape juice. Once youve broke the cigarette thing (for me it was more behavioral habits related to smoking that was hard to break like going out for smoke breaks and holding the cig and playing with it) you can start using lower nicotine juice and gradually "quit". I feel like another couple weeks (whenever i finish my stash of juices) ill probably go to 3mg on my days off when i can chill and chief all day and stick to 6mg at work when i cant puff regularly. This has been the ONLY thing that has worked for me. Im never going back to cigarettes. The money i save is massive, its kinda fun, the variety of juices and vape mods keeps it interesting, my lungs feel so fucking good...my sinuses are clear, i feel good...never going back, just gotta start vaping with a decent vaporizer (not shitty gas station pens) and a stronger nicotine level in the juice than the salesman will want to give you...broke me it can break you.

    Vaping does help you quit. It all depends on what device you choose to start with. Some folks start Vaping with high powered subohm tanks and have a negative initial experience (subohm tanks are for direct lung hits). If you are starting out, you'll need something for Mouth To Lung like a Mi-One device or Joyetech Penguin maybe. You use these devices with high Nic juice (9mg+) and you'll be good to go.

    The problem with starting with direct lung hitting setups is that you are not used to smoking like that and so you tend to cough a lot. That said, it is not impossible to start with these devices.

    Your determination to stop smoking also plays a significant role. You have come to the right place to seek advice from that very knowledgeable guys here on VU.

    agree 100%. cigarettes have this sort of variable resistance to them, your vape device wont have this, so its a bit strange to hit at first, took me maybe one or two days to get over this.

    I REALLY wanted to get off cigarettes, i developed a new hobby of hiking...at first i was just out of shape however the awful conclusion was that my lungs were holding me back...id be gasses early on well before my legs started to feel it. I was shocked and appalled at the results from just 1 week of vaping including 4 cigs during that time...my lungs were completely the reason i was "out of shape"...just seeing that improvement for myself made me determined to never go back, on top of the multiple other benefits vaping had over cigarettes...and enjoyment is one of those advantages....so why are you spending all that money on overpriced dried leaves when you could be spending a fraction of that on a huge variety of flavor and nicotine control?

    Once vaping, I went from a pack and a half a day to 6 a day. I'm now at 1 cig in the morning with coffee.
    If you feel like you are still wanting to smoke, try lowering the nicotine level of your liquid. I found that at 12mg, I was still craving a cigarette. I lost a lot of the craving when I lowered my nicotine level to 6mg.

    I tried vaping off and on for a couple of years. It would gag me to inhale and I would give up. I watched a bunch of you tube videos and was amazed at the vapor production the reviewers were getting. I just couldn't do it without getting gagged and coughing. Then one day 10 months ago I was watching a video and the guy was explaining direct to lung vaping (I already had a sub ohm set up). Once I got the hang of direct to lung vaping I haven't smoked even one cigarette in the last 10 months. I smoked a pack a day for 40+ years and just never found the will power to quit. I use 3mg juice and am now a happy vaper. I enjoyed smoking, but I enjoy vaping more. I am around smokers and haven't been tempted at all to bum a cigarette. By the way, I enjoy this site a lot. Do your research and don't give up. Most of the people who influenced me to try vaping have quit vaping and gone back to smoking. Not me. Never again will I smoke a cigarette.

    Regards,

    Charlie

    Already have, my friend! I was a bit stupid with the smoking thing, since I had chronic asthma. I say had, because now it seems I have just normal asthma...hardly need my blue inhaler. I can also walk so much further without getting short of breath. That's a novelty still lol.

    I was the same when I first started, although I found out about DTL very quickly! I hated the coughing and found DTL doesn't make me cough, where MTL does. It's weird.

    Hardest part was missing that nice little cowboy killer throat hit, especially in the morning. That's where the Juul came in, but mostly I DL now.

    I wish I could say that analogs are now obnoxious to me. However, I really do like the taste and even the smell of tobacco. Maybe reminiscence from growing up too.

    Vaping has been a winning fight and its a great community and hobby.

    Vaping was the ONLY thing that helped me quit smoking. Now you are switching from smoking to vaping! Now you can free yourself from smelly and harmful cigarettes or thousands of dangerous chemicals. There is no doubt that vaping is a less harmful and much better alternative to smoking.
    The vaping scene is immense and can be frightening to beginners. Without any guidance, it is difficult to choose devices, liquids, and information on keeping your vape mod and other accessories in good condition.

    BUT, you can learn all about it, in time! Heck if I can figure out the basics, anyone can...I admit to being a bit of a dumb with some things!

    I never had a vape store around the corner, so the most important part for me other than having a good vape and liquid I like is not running out of liquid, coils ect. or I would end up smoking. I like vaping better than smoking, from day one I can be around smokers and not be bothered, not even notice they have a cig in their hand half the time. Quit for 6 months once, ran out of supplies and started back. Got a new vape better than the last and yesterday found they opened a local store that carries everything I need so never again.

    Yeah after a while you are able to smell where ppl have smoked it's gross, then you think "I smelled like that?! " Lol. Seems like sense of smell in general gets stronger, food tastes better as well, being a large part of taste is smell.

    Sometimes think of cigs after a meal, I believe it's more out of habit than a craving though. Just remind myself I don't smoke anymore and hit the vape.

    I made the move this last weekend after a rough couple of weeks with a cousin 6 years younger than me dying of a heart attack, and his dad my uncle in the hospital after having a massive heart attack this weekend. The heart problems run deep in my gene pool. Call me selfish but I don't want to be The End of the story. I want meet my future grand kids and see the end of the story. So I talked with my wife and we went to the vape shop and got what we needed to get this ball rolling. I refuse to go back down that road again. Had a little incident happen before I left for work this afternoon. It sent me straight in to the pissed off mode and wanting a cigarette. So I grabbed my V8 and fogged my work truck for the first 12 miles of the drive to location. I stopped and fueled up and vaped a little more. Now back to calm and all is good.

    Isn't it funny, how being mad at something or someone, will make you want to do something to hurt YOURSELF. :giggle: I had to get past that, with drinking -- instead of "fuck you, I'm gonna get drunk" I had to turn it into "fuck you, you're not worth killing myself over!" Maybe because I battled that particular demon with drinking, it's never bothered me, with smoking -- there's really no amount of angry that would make me want to start inhaling poison again.

    That I understand. I actually haven't drank anything since last year. Got tired of hearing the morning after about the night before. I still don't quite have the "Fuck You" part under control. I'm just a little more selective where I decide to unholster it at. lol

    Oh, I still have the fuck you's -- usually at my husband, since he's the only person I encounter on a regular basis. I swear, if we didn't holler 'fuck you' at each other at least once a week, I'd think he hated me. :giggle: But I do prefer the "I love you's" a lot more. :D

    I meant to respond to this last week when you posted it, but I was busy with payday running around and madly buying things. :giggle: But when I finally was able to REALLY smell what cigarette smoke, and smokers, really smelled like.... I suddenly understood that my husband truly did love me, and apparently quite insanely, to put up with that stench, as a non-smoker himself, for TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS. So naturally he's THRILLED with vaping, just so delighted that he's never objected to a single vapey thing I've bought. :D Sometimes he'll go over and look at my general vape collection, and just smile -- money NOT turned into ashes!

    I still think of smoking sometimes, but it's more of a passing thought than a craving, so I just let it keep on going, and keep vaping, and it keeps working. No one is more astonished than ME!

    Vaping sure doesn't hurt when it comes to trying quit. This has come along way from where it was 5 years ago when I tried it. That time around I had something Ego like the Joye. It didn't seem to matter where I bought my juice, how often I changed the cartomizer everything tasted like Lysol or Fabreeze to me. This go around I'm figuring out how the Smok V8 and V8 baby work and how to dial them in, and damn has the juice come along ways. Sitting on location in the oilfield right now watching the sun go down and enjoying me something that tastes like a cinnamon cookie in the V8 Baby, and swapping that out with something else in the V8 that resembles banana cream pie.

    3 days down and no ciggs or dip. Hasn't helped with the attitude.lol I don't think vaping can fix that.:devil::kickbutt::devil:

    about 1 month vaping. Had a few cigs day 2 and they tasted like shit and made me feel awful (probably too much nic i was still vaping)
    My health has significantly improved in a tangible way. Im no longer "out of shape" turns out most of my getting gassed doing shit was smoking related im not nearly as out of shape as i thought (i am somewhat active much MUCH more so now thanks to kicking cigs). Vaping is more fun than smoking, tastes better, has almost none of the side effects and zero stink.

    Yeah without vaping id be smoking 10-15 cigs a day with a raw throat, stiff tight lungs, feeling out of shape hating exercise, not smelling the world or tasting it properly and with far less disposable income. Also would have dry hands with lots of hangnails due to washing my hands after every cig due to shitsmell.

    I tried everything to quit smoking cigarettes and nothing worked, then I tried vaping and quit in 1 day. Tomorrow will be 3 yrs tobacco free.

    Right now I'm still in the early stages of the quit smoking, vaping change where I'm really not saving any money, but it feels like the war is finally over. I quit at noon on the 3rd. We drove an hour to the vape shop and bought a few supplies and I haven't looked back. I'm waking up every day thankful to have tobacco behind me.

    This forum was a great find. It's members remind me I'm not the only one that has gone through this struggle and I won't be the last.

    no experience in this, just start to vape, but i guess it can not help a lot, as quiting smokie is never a easy thing

    WRONG. It helps more than anything else ever invented, because IT'S A DIRECT REPLACEMENT. So it not only helps you quit, it helps you with the even harder part: STAYING quit.

    Everyone's vaping/quitting experience will be different

    It took me 2.5 years to fully quit using vaping - but it did happen :)

    If no experience then it is probably a good idea to keep your trap shut on the subject.

    If you haven't been on the same side fence as a lot of us, who have wanted to quit smoking and failed miserably over the years then you really don't understand the way we view vaping. It is the one tool we have been given that made it possible to kick the habit.

    Absolutely I was able to quit the minute I started vaping. My wife finished her last 2 cigarettes this morning and is trying real hard to make it vaping. If it takes her longer and she needs to dual use longer that is OK.

    Even though it took me over two and a half years to quit smoking - I did vape a lot instead of always smoking.

    It helped me a lot because it gave me hope like no other method of quitting. I tried everything but shock therapy and acupuncture.
