    My 2 part plan worked.
    1) Change to vaping
    2) Quit vaping

    Roughly $100 better a week.
    I still get urges to supply my body with nicotine but hey I smoked 30 years.
    I used a quit clinic and from there I could work out the decreasing factors and timeframe similar to quitting with patches or gum.

    Edit: the greatest success is not the money but lack of poison that was forming on my tongue whilst on forced schizophrenia meds.

    Thanks. I will do.

    I ran a thread about vaping here so wanted to confirm my success in stopping that also. went down to 1 mg and stopped there and gave my vape machine away.

    Congratulations, you will never be sorry.

    I quit in about 5 min., totally on my own through sheer force of will. Well, plus one hypnosis seminar. It was just time. I was sick of it.

    I wasn't on any other medications at the time, though.

    How do you quit in 5 minutes?
    Surely you quit in a second or over an indefinite period where one gradually realises that one has defeated the cravings.

    Well done! The first few days is the hardest then it’s just a matter of ignoring the vague and decreasing feeling of emptiness for a few weeks.

    I’ve been following the vape stories in the media.

    If you could change your avatar it would represent a turning point...

    thanks.

    you quit recently too? well done.

    I was so sick of it too... where hating it made my willpower strong. Just being honest that it's a liability I don't want. Vaping, however, was key in my method and my success is due to vapes.

    thanks, its about a month or so I've had no vape or cigarette.

    For me changing to a vape was about as hard as giving up vaping, which was relatively new to me... about a month.

    Not recently, about 20 years gone now.

    Yes, and it's terribly hard.

    Kudos. Mind over chemistry.
