I know I can do this, but what am I waiting for?

I have hardly been posting here or elsewhere for a while now. So, I need to get into gear and quit smoking. But alas, how can I do this if my heart is not in it?

I should have quit on the 2nd of April of this year, and it would have been one day and odd hours completed.

But since I knew that Mother just purchased a sleeve of cigarettes, I was dumbfounded into thinking I may have some. It only took one cigarette to get me hooked again.

But since it is a new day, I thought that I would try and quit again at 8 am. This would be ideal for me as all I have to do is stay on the vape until midnight and sleep the day through until 9 am, and then I would have done a day again.

I know it is doable but what are your thoughts.

Whenever I try, I will always try.

Over the past few days, I have been trying to get along with 6mg juices in the Luxe X Pro. But to no avail. I couldn’t hack it, as I was constantly coughing. So I tried to use 0mg juice, only to find it smoother, and I hardly coughed as much.

Then, as I still had nicotine in the freezer, and there was about 2.5 litres worth of 72mg/ml left, I tried to get rid of it by asking if anyone wanted it. Then, since nobody wanted it, I was forced to throw it out and never look back. I also threw out my Nicotine bags (snus).

I also threw out my stash of liquids, all 6mg and about half of 24mg.

Moral of this story is to not to panic buy.

I find that I have neither found a thing to satisfy me.

From the first day I started to smoke, I became increasingly addicted to smoking. But for some time now, I have felt the need to quit smoking, and I nearly did this seven years ago. But since I took a puff of a cigarette, I thought I could still go without if I had only had one. But boy, was I mistaken.

For these seven years, I have just continued to smoke or made some effort into vaping. I have had a few hours to a few days done here and there.

But if I continue to smoke, I know that it will have an adverse effect on me in the future. Meaning I will see to have had a smoking-related disease. And I do not want to go down that road. I know that since my very first cigarette, it did something terrible to my lungs. Yet sometimes, when I inhale smoke, I feel a burning sensation at the back of my throat. And I do not like this.

I will eventually quit. But this has to be in my own time.

It could have been.

I was going so well in my achievement in quitting smoking and I knew that sometime I may fail. But I was into day 6 and I did.

Firstly, I know the dangers of smoking, but I ignore these and just smoke.

Secondly, I have smoked half of my life and a bit, so it is sometimes hard to break a habit of a lifetime and change the way I get my nicotine.

I just wish that I did not smoke anymore since my dad passed away from a smoking illness.

I will now be Quitting smoking and the time I will do this is the 21st of August 2023. At 2 PM but banners are 1 hour behind Daylights Savings Time.

I Can Do This, Hopeing

For just over a week now I have been smoking less and less. As I am using Disposables. Take for instance the 19th of this month, I was starting day 1 of a nearly 3-day stretch, without smoking.

But now I have been doing a day here and there. Only to start again with Vaping.

The reason for this post is to help others who need help and support. Like I do Now.

My only hope is for each day that I do, I hope I can continue to Vape, and forget smoking as an afterthought.

So if you would like to know. My Quit date is the 31st of July 2023 at 3 AM in the early hours of the night.

Over the course of a week!

Yes I have been smoking but it has reduced by a 1/3 as I would have had about 13 packets within a week, and is now 4 packets.

This is solely down to Vaping a few days here and there.

But what I am surprised about is that now I have my heart and soul in it.

So when I do a day again, I hope that I will be able to continue. And beat my 42 days spent not smoking.

The miracle is on its way!

Over the course of 3 weeks, I have done more hours not smoking since a long time ago. And now I am determined to quit smoking.

Yet although I have racked up a few days and hours here and there, I seem to always want to smoke, as if I am missing an old habit.

I find it easier to vape now more than ever and I will now try my hardest to keep you all updated and stating that now I am a former Smoker.

I just wish that when I started my vaping journey all them years ago, I did not light up a ciggy, just because I could not taste a friend’s juice.

As I am starting over I would just like to say one thing, please encourage me to stay clear of a packet of cigarettes, that would otherwise be mine.

For about a month now!

As the title suggests, I have been trying my hardest to quit smoking. With me only narrowly doing just over a day last week and nearly two.

I have been forced to buy some vape pods, and have been using them.

They’re Elf Bars Peach Ice, Spearming & Watermelon.

I had been using the Peach Ice for just over a day, two days ago. But now I am on the Spearmint.

My last known drag of a Real Cigarette was 12:30 last night.

It is now nearly 17:20 on the 2nd of July 2023.

I just hope I can stick with it and just vape without coughing.
