    3 years down - yay me !

    After 40+ years of heavy smoking, I'm still amazed to this day that following my first exploratory experimental vape on 2 November 2014, I was able to stop smoking instantly and have never looked back or been tempted to light up another cigarette - ever.

    My Vapemate app tells me I've saved $23,910.75 (based on what the cost of my tobacco products were back in 2014) and that I've avoided 50,874 cigarettes.

    I can't seem to find that $24K anywhere in my bank account but I know how hard I'd be hurting if I had to fork out the hundreds of $$$ every week to buy cigarettes & tobacco today.

    Happy Vaperversary !!!

    Three years is awesome

    I reckon its not so much where did the money go, but if you look at your life you will probably notice you have been able to indulge in all sorts of other things ... I know for me bills were always a pain , but I no longer have the dread I used to have when a carton of smokes was always more important than the bit of paper asking for money

    Vaping Saves ... in many ways !

    Which reminds me, I have to pay the phone bill(s) today.

    Like everyone, I don't notice any more money available to just throw around, but it's a pretty safe bet that I would not be in this comfortable position if vaping had not come along to save me. Both health wise and financially.

    Yay! for three years Nicaholic.

    Well done Nico that's a great achievement. I'm at about the 3.5 years now & it is hard to believe we could go that long without a fag a. Yes there's not much extra in the bank but I do know when I was smoking I had to be really careful when I did the grocery shopping & tried to buy a two pack of meat for $8 or under but I find myself now paying $14 without a fear of managing on the old age pension.
