My story is a little different than most. See, I quit smoking a few years ago. I was rolling my own cigs, and had just bought a big bag of tobacco, tubes and a rolling machine. But I kept seeing commercials on TV about people having strokes, heart attacks, amputations, etc from smoking and one day I just said, no, that's not happening to me. I put the tobacco on top of my fridge, finished the smokes I had rolled, and never touched it again. Now, I bummed a few cigarettes here and there, but for the most part remained tobacco free. At the end of last year, I was attending beauty school. I'm a man, but my goal was to go on and get my barbers license. That hasn't happened and I don't think it will. But I was attending school with a bunch of teeny boppers, which I guess I should have expected. I'm in my 30's, and teeny boppers annoy the shit out of me to a point that I cannot even accurately describe. Not every young person, just the shallow stupid ones. One of them in particular mouthed off to me because of my opinions over certain rap artists. So I got really stressed out to the point I needed something, but did not want to go back to cigarettes. A friend of mine had recently started vaping, and suggested I give it a try. I did, and I found that I enjoyed the flavors as much as the nicotine. Near as I can tell from Facebook posts, I started vaping a week or so before last Christmas.
 
I started vaping in October of 2013. I didn't intend to quit cigarettes I just wanted to have nicotine in case I couldn't afford cigarettes (like at the end of the month). I was a duel user for about two weeks or so then suddenly couldn't stand the taste of a cigarette. I've tried to smoke 1 since and couldnt because it tasted so horrible.

I just passed the 100 day mark! Haven't had a drag of an analog since August 1st and i'm loving the vaporizer.

When I first switched over i was vaping an 8mg e-juice but since then I've cut it down to 3mg. I literally just dumped the remainder of the 8mg in the garbage because it feels too strong now!

Considering I've never really finished anything I've started, other than pregnancy, a bowel movement, and at least one marriage (and I'm pretty sure the latter two fall into the same category), I'm pretty proud of myself to be FINISHED with cigarettes. :D

Congratulations on your official one year milestone @Teresa P. It's quite an achievement. You should be proud that you have gone a year smoke free, and that you have completed many bowel movements within that same year.

Today is my 2nd Vapeversary. Yay. Two years and only 1 tobacco cig which was offered to me in a bar. I did like the throat hit, but it tasted like ass with a splash of menthol. I refused a second cig and went back to my lovely flavor, Cactus Dew in a mini dripper on an ego t styled battery.

40+ years of being addicted to tobacco is finally behind me. You can do it too.

Stupid, oversized banner pretty much tells the story. As usual, late to the party, even my own.

Cigarette free and vape exclusive since January 10th, 2010.

Woo hooo!! Congrats @SailCat!!

Your banner isn't at all over-sized. It's one of the smaller ones I've seen.

4 weeks / 28 days.

Day One:

Day 28:

And that doesn't include the boxes of juices and other miscellaneous accessories.

And *NOW* I find that my health insurance policy CONSIDERS VAPING "TOBACCO" and my surcharge continues...

You ain't alone ... in either case. :)

Congratulations on the milestone and don't be discouraged by the reality dose from those insurance folks. They've lagging behind the technology and health studies regarding vaping over smoking and have some catching up to do.

Oh and I would also much rather vape 3 chemicals as opposed to smoking 7,000 carcinogenic chemicals :)

I'm your OHMbre :)

Even if I were offered a million dollars I wouldnt, because that one cigarette that was picked up could be the lead to further complications, and or death. So yes, I agree whole-heartedly my friend :)

I'm your OHMbre :)

Congrats, Mykline! I'd say you're over the hump. :)
That is for sure. Stopped smoking the first day I started vaping and haven't looked back. Wish I had started sooner.

Had my last smoke on October 20th.

Two months before, I landed in the hospital with a massive jaw infection that ended up in multiple incisions inside my mouth and IV antibiotics for 6 weeks through a PIC line. It was at that moment, I took a good look at the pack of smokes I had in my hand and made a promise to myself, my family and most importantly my girlfriend who stayed by my side every moment. Driving me to the hospital 3 times a day and keeping track of mountain of antibiotics and opioids they had me on. it's all a blur now.

Off I went to the closest vape shop. Started at 16mg and within a month was down to 5. I did try a smoke sometime in December but nearly blew chunks after the first drag. No thanks...

Congrats to everyone in this thread for kicking the stinkies... I've never felt better and can't wait to get back on my bike as soon as this snow finishing melting off!
