    Celebrating small goals

    Hey guys I'd share my small achievment. I started on the stinkies when I was about 14 and by the time I was 16 I was going through 30 Ryo a day because my mental health was pretty bad. About 2 years back after trying patches, gums sprays ect I decide to try vaping because 2 people I knew quite using vapour products. I bought 5 crappy ego vapes from a tabacco shop because they kept breaking and had no clue you could get them online and horrible royal juice with 0 nicotine and I fell in love, even without nicotine it helped me cut down to about 20 a day. My mate gave me some diy 18mg coffee, apple and mango+peach and I cut down to about 15 a.day. I started rebuilding my kanger t3s coils and diy juice and that's when my hobby began. About a year later I upgraded to a istick 40w and Griffin 22 and building with 28 kanthal and it was a great vape at 25watts but I was still duel using buying a pack every 3-4 days.
    I started buying a new mod or atty every few weeks and for the last 6months I've been trying to completly cut out the stinkies. I'd genarlly make it about 8 days then I'd get stressed and buy a pack and feel horrible and I did this until now.
    So far I've gone 7 full weeks without a dart and vaping my head off, it's the longest I've been smoke free since starting to smoke and I'd have to say I love it! Growing up I had really bad asthma but now I'm strictly vaping I've seen no sign of it, I haven't used ventalin in about 3 weeks which is un heard of for me. About a week ago I started to cough up brown stuff (sorry tmi) in the morning but now can take really deep breaths again also I can smell and taste everything , ejuice,food even someone cutting their grass a block away it feels amazing. I'm still having mental cravings for the feel of a smoke but no nic fits. I think this can be sorted with a myjet/icare with 24mg tabacco flavoured liquid and I tight draw.
    I now realise how awful they smell and how off putting it can be "I can't believe I used to smell like that, yuck"
    I know it's not a huge achievment but I finally reached my small goal and set another for 3 months smoke free

    Cheers guys couldn't have done it without the helpful tips from AVF
