I AM right behind you!  Quit my vape to and I also find myself using the green as a crutch as well.  I guess I still see it as a win because its not nicotine? That ACT thing sounds helpful, I might have to research that! Thanks!

It sounds like you have made some good progress since your last post.  Nothing wrong with tapering at all.  For me the psychological aspect of quitting was the hardest so it's good you have conditioned yourself to not vape at times you are accustomed to.  I wish you success as you step away from the vape and absolutely use the gum as you need to.  I'm sure there will be some bumps in the road and craves along the way but stay close to the forum as you stop vaping.  It will help!

Thanks.  Got the drive done with a little help from a friend and a nice snow blower.  Of course, it was just what is on top and then we threw salt down this morning in hopes of letting the sun do it's work.  It is a very heavy wet snow on the ground for sure.  

I grew up in MI so, kind of used to the snow but, hate the traffic and hassle of it all.

Still not smoking and that is the best part!

Its still a rollercoaster. Im also learning how important my changed routine is. I didnt follow it yesterday morning and I was off the entire day. Feeling a bit more zen today. I know its going to be up and down for awhile but I really want to be free. Thanks for the kind words

Congrats on another day smoke free. I can only speak for me it’s been 33 days the last few have been way better. But you have to be kind to yourself. This a tremendously hard endeavor. I have had some days that I took it hour by hour. But still hanging in there.

Thanks gkim,

Yeah, day 4 now and really feeling like a better person. I was carrying a lot of shame and guilt around not being able to stop and I just feel so much better being able to control myself.
