Well, this is my forth 'real' go at quitting (not counting the extremely fail attempts while puffing both).
the first time I tried, it was when the vape thing first came out, the ones that look like cigarettes, I bought a set of two with cartridges, cost $120 (this was in like 2007). then, it died too fast, cartridges cost nearly the same as packs of smokes anyway, so that was short lived. I went back to cigarettes. Then, I had to make a deal with my parents that I would try to quit, as a condition of moving back in (hit a rough patch and needed help, 2013). So, I got myself a cheapo china ordered ego, and the CE4 style tanks... I had a few, but being in my rut, I couldn't afford to keep buying them (the only place near me at the time that had them wanted about $10 a piece, still). and so I gave up and went back again to the dreaded smelly cigarettes within about two months. Now, the girl I am with (we met and got together in july last year), does not smoke cigarettes, and even though she said she didn't mind it, I know how bad it smells to someone who doesn't, and I felt guilty everytime I'd light up around her, and especially when we'd kiss. And so, It prompted me to try again, coupled with actually wanting to quit, anyway, I got a KBox Nano kit, and kicked the cigarettes, again. I then lost my kbox and now I have a Vision Spinner 650 with a Evod2 tank, hopefully just until I can afford a nicer set up. I moved back up to 18mg nic juices since the hits are so much weaker, but I am doing well, now, been just over a month since my last smoke, and anytime someone is smoking within 100 feet I can smell it, and it is instantly nauseating. I literally have to cover my face with my sleeve. I am glad, because the little inkling in the back of my head comes creeping in from time to time, especially under stress, but then I smell it and instantly, that slight craving gets muted. I am not going back to them this time, regardless of below par equipment. I just got to stick it out with this little one until next month, when I should hopefully be able to get something much nicer. AND be able to order myself some DIY stuff for the juice because, like I have mentioned before, I am tired of having to pay $15-20+ for 30ml (even though it lasts me nearly 2 weeks with my current tank/battery)
