14 weeks off the "stinkies"

Post by Guest on Sat Jan 17, 2015 7:38 pm

Yep folks its 14 weeks since my last "real" fag

admittedly i'm still getting my "fix" cos I'm on the "e-cigs"

BUT I'm using that less and less...a puff or two in the morning and then a few on here (to help me with the stress of arguing that white is not merely another shade of grey with *********) in an evening

feel MUCH better already...less easily winded and far more able to chase my lunch round the country side....

The "scared straight" approach Smile

I quit smoking but I could never kick the craving, not even on a course of a horrible medication that has dangerous side-effects. I tried nicotine gum, but that's very expensive and it's kind of awkward to adjust to as well.

So basically I use e-cigs full time now. Literally all the time Smile I know they're not as safe as quitting nicotine products altogether, but they've been a lot easier on my lungs than cigs were.

Yep, they say that nicotine is the worst of the addictive drugs. The craving is the worst to get rid of. Worse than heroin, so they say.

Aren't e-cigs nicotine? I don't care if someone wants to poison themselves over the long term. My only objection is that the lungs are the worst drug delivery means ever.

E-cig liquid usually contains nicotine, though apparently some people (don't ask me why) get nicotine-free liquid.

I think you need to be very careful about these e-cigs.
I would put all my money (£2.67 Hahahahaha) on the fact that come ten years time, they're going to find a whole heap of health issues connected to these "wonder" ciggies....

But yes, better than ordinary cigarettes I guess.

They seem to eliminate tars, which are a large part of what is wrong with the whole cigarette and cigar thing.

Still, I cringe when I think of all the delicate lung tissue one is destroying with every puff. I can think of no worse death than not being able to breath.

That's how my grandfather died Quill; he literally drowned in his own mucus.

Thank you Quill   xxx

I can't imagine smoking now.  My coping mechanism mentally was that I didn't smoke and never had smoked.  

Mind over matter; it sounds easy but you need a stubborn side.    I hated the way it controlled my behaviour, it is a drug after all.
