Hi,

Timely! I started cutting down in January and was just using up my last jucie bottle - which took ages, because I had cut down so much. I haven't been on this site as I returned to work and got out of the routine. I had my last vape exactly 24hrs ago. So, I guess this is officially day 1!

Aside from a certain degree of stress at work, it's actually going pretty smoothly. Over the last few weeks, I've gradually cut down and removed vaping from so many of the times and places I'd usually do it, so lots of the 'work' is largely done. I'm using gum for cravings and it helps a lot.

Thanks for your support!

Thats great news ! we are all in this together and before we know it hopefully we will all be free and looking back at 12 months going wow were did the time go blush Overdose I got a giggle about the container of icecream. Nothing like it for beating a craving. There is actually science between our craving for sweet and salty although I cant remember it exactly. I am trying to do better this time around and use grapes and pears lol. doesnt mean I havenet found myself jonesin for the occasional bananna split. But they say the first year is for quitting the second for losing so if I gain a few pounds it will be worth it to have kicked this nasty habit once and for all. blush Md I did the same thin waited until my last botttle of juice was gone and then disposed of everything. The cost of replacing it would be a huge deterrent to returning for me to so I press on ....one day at a time.

Way to go on your 2 weeks, that is fantastic.  Just keep going!

I had signed on here yesterday and literally, nothing after the 28th appeared.  I was seriously worried.........

Congrats on your 1 month.  Hope you celebrated?  Some type of reward?  I told Glammy, I signed in yesterday and nothing appeared beyond the 28th.  

I am also on day 2 of my second month.  I started with 21 mg patches, did 2 weeks and did about 1 1/2 weeks of the 14 mg.  I have been on the 7 mg patches now for about that long.........I have 5 days left in the box and then I will get rid of the patches.  I notice the difference every time I step down but nothing major.

Good luck to you

Congrats to you also on your 1 month!  We are all doing this one day at a time.  I also did the ice cream thing on Sunday.  

I am in OH and I have now accumulated about 10" of snow in my drive.  I am taking this afternoon off work in hopes of getting the drive at least to a place that we can get all the way up the drive.  I have a really long driveway so, it could take a while and by the time I get off work, fix dinner for the family, it is pitch dark for now so, this is my vacation time!  LOL

As long as I don't smoke, all is good!

Congrats to you too on the 1 month.  You should be proud of yourself and you should reward yourself!  

We are all going to be shoveling our way out!

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!
