With smoking, we know all to well about the times of counting the hours we could refrain from lighting up another cig. If you were a chain smoker, then even making it an hour-long without taking another puff was an accomplishment. Once we switched to the electronic cigarette, we felt more at ease not only with ourselves, but with what we’re inhaling too.
When you first looked to or had the thought of quitting the tobacco cigarette, you more than likely tried to go the ‘cold turkey’ route. I’ll take a wild guess and say you failed. You counted the hours you could go without lighting up again. Just like many of us, you fell back into the trap of addiction as we all have faced. It’s okay, we know you didn’t give up. Your determination and will brought you to the wonderful world of electronic cigarettes.
For the past week, it’s been on my mind. I’ve been thinking “How much time could I go without using my e-cigarette?”. With many of us electronic cigarette users, we’re not trying to quit using the ecig. We’re content, it’s literally being proven its healthier than the tobacco sticks, so what’s the need to go through the whole timing ourselves thing again?
Just out of interest, I want to know how long I could go without using my PV and still feel comfortable. With tobacco cigarettes, we were not only addicted to the nicotine, but to the other 4,000 chemicals also. With that being said, many of those chemicals are the cause for those headaches, jitters and cold sweats just to name a few – that we used to have when going any lengthy time without another puff. Going a good 5 hours without using my ecig, I didn’t get those jitters nor the headaches. To be quite honest, I was perfectly comfortable and content other than it just being on my mind.
Mind power… mind power I tell ya!
Now I wonder, is my addiction so severe? or do I really need my daily vapes? – I don’t think I’m so reliant on the nicotine anymore, but maybe I still am more drawn to the hand to mouth fixation and actuality of exhaling vapor. I’m still not perfectly sure what exactly draws me to using my electronic cigarette as much as I do, but I can tell you there is nothing pulling me away from it. I’m content with my PV and juice, I’m comfortable… I’m a vaper.
