Smoke to vape? Any bunnies who have made the switch? Input appreciated.[More:]
My husband bought me my first gear for Xmas. It took me until Spring Break to be able to go for 2 weeks without the nightly last one or the first one of the morning.

Now, I can go almost a month, unless I'm hanging out with hard smoking friends.

I feel better and want to continue. I love getting my senses of taste and smell back and saving SO much money.

As a never-smoked (as opposed to a non-smoker), I have no idea how difficult it must be to give up. But I know from friends who've also given up drinking that they say trying to stop smoking is much harder. So all power to you, lilywing.

Working on giving up myself. I don't really have anything to compare it with but, yeah, it's a struggle every bloody day. Hang in there!

Congrats! I have a coworker who made the switch last year and he is very happy with the flexibility, health, and lack of smell of the new way.

My son has been trying to switch, but he seems to be stuck where he's still smoking, and using the ecig when he's somewhere can't smoke. It's very frustrating.

I started smoking because of these things. Seemed a nice way to enjoy the concentration benefits of nicotine without the cancer downsides.
But I find the glycol(? too lazy to google) taste just to displeasing.
Also my lungs are a body part that I'm not too comfortable with in exposing to unregulated substances....

Yeah, a Da Buddha DBV is nice at home, a Vapor Genie for when you're on the move. You can usually get a nice quality grinder as part of a package deal, it's totally worth it.

I'm talking about going from tobacco to e-cigs. :-)
Thanks everyone for the input so far.

Glad this is working for you. My Bear and I quit smoking (one week cessation program) back in 1997 and it was one of the hardest things I've ever done -- and one of the things I am gladdest I did, too. It is a new world when you manage your own time rather than having to structure it around smoking, lose the chronic cough, stop secretly worrying about dying of lung cancer/heart disease/emphysema etc., and can taste and smell everything again. I am also delighted to be free of my forced servitude to keeping tobacco company coffers filled.
