    Congratulations Pom-- and I had no idea you smoked... For your sake I'm real happy you kicked the habit, I know it will help some of those health problems. I'd never heard of the e-cigs so I looked them up...intereting. I don't know if we have them here but I found a place where we can order on line-----not that I need them, I was just curious. I never smoked because I was so allergic to cigarette smoke and the smell that I had to avoid it completely or get sick to my stomach and live in the bathroom if I got a whiff from someone. I must say I don't mind that they've made every eating place smoke free, it gives me the chance to eat out at any place I choose now. Must say I do feel sorry for those who do smoke and would enjoy a cigarette after a meal though.

    Congrats to your son for also quitting but for being instrumental in helping his mom quit too-- give the guy a hug.
    I know you won't decide to start over, when you decide something you see it all the way.

    Fantastic, pom! The e-cigs seem to work so well - it could be a new freedom for so many. You rock, girl!

    Good for you, Ellie! I know someone who was on cocaine and he said that it was easier for him to kick that habit than it was to stop smoking. As of this writing, he's still smoking and has been for over 40 years. Ya dun good.
    Blessings,
    Mary

    I havent had any tobacco since Jan 9 of this year. Thats something I havent been able to say since mid Nov 1995, that was the longest I quit in 25 years of smoking.

    So far I havent saved any money , but Im am feeling better, breathing better, and sleeping better, so its money well spent.

    Im also in a better mood and have a better attitude.

    I worked with someone who kicked smoking and Heroine, he said smoking was harder to kick.
    I have a HUGE SIG!!!!

    Congrats, blue. Keep up the good work - it really is worth the effort. It was 1 year for me on March 15th. I have no desire for a cigarette, and I can't even stand the smell of them now. It has been one of the best things I ever did for myself - only regret that I couldn't accomplish it many years ago.

    I have no urge to go back to tobacco. Are you still vaping, or are you completely off it? I tried quiting many times as well, this worked.

    I like the tinkering aspect of vaping as well. I have some rebuildable atomizers coming, and ive customized 2 of my 3 mods and may buy a fourth.
