I smoked for around 25 years. 2-3 packs a day and tried gums, patches, pen devices but nothing seamed to work.
As I started vaping I got sold a system that’s known to be cloud chaser setup and 3mg nicotine juice (bakery). I tried really hard to just use that but I couldn’t, I would still grab 5-10 cigs a day together with vaping.
Went back to that store, I didn’t know about online stores yet, asked for higher juice and the dude did not wanted to sell it, arguing that 6mg in a sub ohm tank were bad.
I went back home and tried again but nothing. Found a different store and explained the situation, they sold me a 6mg. I tried it for a week but got bad headaches so back to doing both, cigarettes and vaping.
Went back in the store again and the guys made me a 4.5mg juice this worked like a charm for me. However I still wanted that quick nicotine but I said to myself that I would not smoke one more cigarette. I lit one, turned it off right away and left it in the ash tray.
Every time I went outside to vape and my mind was begging me to grab the pack of cigs first, I would pick up that one cigarette and smell it. Not even 30seconds later my brain agreed that vaping was more satisying.
I’ve never touched or lit a cigarette ever since, neither did my husband, now we down to 2mg nicotine and I might drop lower soon.
This won’t for everyone and I think whatever helps someone to quit or lower their cigarette intake is the way to go.
At the moment I’m getting two of my friends off cigarettes, making 24mg nic salt juices for them, as well as giving them tanks and mods and so far its working. But for them its only a month now, however its better than nothing.
Wish I had the salt available or at least a person showing me different devices and nicotine strength. Might would have had a easier and more successful time.
