I have not had a cigarette in over a month thanks to my vaporizer.
I can hit on it anytime I want and get nicotine.
Who cares if I am reinforcing the same ritual as smoking?
Who cares if I am getting nicotine every time I think about smoking?
I care that you have accepted this as quitting smoking, not in judgement, but, out of understanding.
What are you doing to distance yourself from the ritual and the ingestion of nicotine?
These are the CRUX of smoking. They encompass both the physical and the psychological addictions.
You address neither using an ecig.
People can use an ecig for the rest of their lives, I'm not condemning them
Still spending money, and, still building the day and night around the ritual and physical addiction is not what I consider freedom.
