    I'm going to stick with it. I have more juice arriving in the mail this week so i'll have several new flavours to try out. So far i've been switching juices every couple hours because I tired of them, i'm hoping some lighter fruitier flavours might suit me better than the tobacco and dessert flavours.
    Great story indeed, Indeed

    Not everyone has trouble with those "other chemicals". We're all different and have a slightly different journey. At any one time though there will be *someone* on here who will relate to whatever you are going through at that time - good or bad - so don't be afraid to speak up.

    Great to hear more successful stories from Vaping. This is what the Federal Gov't needs to take note of and make Federal laws that over power the states to legalise Nicotine sale and supply in Aus.

    Would certainly make life a lot easier. The whole issue with nicotine i'm sure puts a lot of people off trying to vape, it did for me.

    75 hours for me and no issues switching over to vaping. Still the occasional urge to smoke but it's mild and usually comes about because i've forgotten to vape for a little while. Seems it's better to stay urge free by vaping more, at least until those connections are formed that tell me I can be satisfied from vaping instead of smoking.

    My sense of taste and smell came back today. I had scrambled eggs on toast this morning and could actually taste the butter, it has been a while lol

    And still no morning cough! though I can't until I start coughing up all the gunk in my lungs from smoking.

    LOL love it.

    Just on the coughing up the gunk. It doesn't always happen. I found that as a smoker I regularly coughed up the gunk so that by the time I quit there wasn't really any left. It might surprise you.

    It gets even better than butter. The senses of taste and smell are tied into the memory centre of the brain. You'll eat something and it will trigger a memory from childhood, a memory that you didn't even know you still had. I think there's a reason a lot of vapers are nostalgic about the treats from their childhood.

    Well, I am 3 weeks so far (second time round). The hardest week for me was the week just gone, a couple of times I thought I'll have one ... don't know why I wanted it - the taste, habit??? don't know. But, I told myself off and kept vaping and the urge soon passed. Like you I have a nearly full pack of 40's sitting in my desk draw and there they shall stay. If you get the urges, stay strong and vape, vape, vape until it passes.

    I can relate to everything you are saying Indeed,
    I miss not only smokes, but the social aspect I always enjoyed..
    Back in the old days when the smokers departed from the herd after dinner, we would grab a drink and go out for a few ciggies and a bit of socialising,
    The nicest people, the best jokes, the most fun, was always gathered around the ashtray.
    I miss that.
    Good luck, I am on the same path myself now..started again and now have to give up the stinkies yet again, but its way easier than it was the first time.

    Cheers all

    It's so much easier and I really don't feel like i've quit at all. I'd almost compare it to how I felt when I switched tobacco brands, i'd notice a few minor differences, but life goes on without interruption.

    And damn the throat hits I can get out of vaping is beautiful!! I think i'm ready to propose to my vape kit.

    Best thing i've done in a long time.
