    Newbie

    Hi all!,

    I hope I'm doing this in the right section?!

    I am new to vaping and have a amazing supporter who has referred me to here, she has been fabulous and answered all and many silly questions! With out her I wouldn't have started vaping to begin with!

    I guess one of the biggest things I was hoping to get responses on is when you started vaping how long until you didn't touch a actual cigarette? I feel I'm doing ok I'm a basically a 30 a day smoker and since really committing to vaping on Monday I am smoking the same packet I opened Monday so it's lasted me 4 days so for me that's a triumph! But I find myself still constantly craving the actual cigarette even while vaping which is getting me quite frustrated! Any words of wisdom or your own personal experience you would be willing share will be more than appreciated! Thank you in advance

    Don't get frustrated or even worry about how many smokes you have when you first start. It's just a transition period, and it's different for everyone. What you should find is over time those cravings become less and less and the number of smokes you do have will decline (hopefully to zero).

    So basically, Relax! Have a vape! Be happy!

    HI AND WELCOME JJleigh83


    Don't worry if vaping is not an immediate fix
    When you start cutting back on ciggies your body is trying to withdraw from the 4000 chemicals and tar and smoke
    Just take your own time

    Welcome JJ, keep your PV close by and the ciggies in a place that's harder to get to.

    If you really want to have a smoke, then have one ..... after a while they taste worse each time and the vape tastes better, and it just happens.

    I was dual using for about three weeks, and when my last pouch of baccy ran out, I didn't buy any more.

    That was almost two years ago and I had about 20 random ciggies in the first 12 months that tasted progressively worse .....and then I forgot about them.

    Hi JJ and welcome!

    I took a few days, well the first 2 or 3 days was just tweaking to get it my nic% right to something that i could vape comfortably. I think it was day 4 i said 'screw it', I'm gonna see if i can go all day. It was a saturday and i was heading to a party that night. Somehow i made it through without a cigarette with several hours of drinking. The next few days were a bit difficult but i was pretty determined, it's amazing how many other chemicals in cigarettes that your body is addicted to. Drinking booze at night helped me sleep otherwise i'd be restless all night during my first few weeks.

    Everyone's going to be different, take your time if you need to. Try and think of every cigarette you dont smoke as a win, rather than every one you do as a loss.

    G'day and welcome JJ.

    I think it's different for everyone. I haven't touched a ciggie since I started vaping, and I smoked for 28 years, so it definitely isn't dependant on how long you have been a smoker for. I must admit, the last 12 months or so I had been saying daily i needed to give up the cigs, as they made me feel terrible, hurt my throat and tasted horrible.

    I've had several sessions on the booze since beginning vaping, and haven't felt like a cig at all during them (even on the occasion I didn't take my PV with me!).

    Keep at it, eventually the taste will get you off the cigs!

    Cheers
    Darren
