I am 5 days into COLD turkey quit from a 24 - 30mg VAPE daily habit.
Aside from the obvious dependence on nicotine. Vaping was a stealth measure, to an addiction that for all intent and purpose is intent on killing me.
I had been off cigs from 1990 to 2002 when a divorce grace my life, then it started up. 1st with cigars, chew and then vape (because I didn't want to pick up cigs,) Today 16 yrs later with a 4 yr vape habit, to the point i had lost weight from 280 to 200. My stealth habits became noticeable when I was getting nauseous, just trying to eat food was the problem.
Over the weekend, I took a long one,
I took sick with what I will describe as flu, along with appetite suppressant effects of vaping taking me to the point of anorexic insanity, the lies, the hiding, has taken a psychology toll on me as well. I KNOW that any amount of nicotine for me is DEADLY.
No offense to the NRT crowd, ANY substance that contains nicotine will not help your quit.
I am praying daily,
Quit Cigs - 1990
2012 quit chew.
2014 Started Vape.
March 8 2019 QUIT NIC
Been a rough few day, the skin crawling cravings have lessened and the cravings have as well So when people Say it get's better it truly DOES.. FOR THOSE Struggling I get it. SO to many others here, I am sure.
My appetite is slowing restoring. as it my brain function.
I get the idea of "wanting to "wean" off. Never worked.
I WILL live what is rest of my life without this crap killing me,. I came here to vent, because I needed to get this crap out as well. The HEAD games we play with ourselves and our family is the worst.
