Inspired by a recent thread on here I decided I wanted to give up smoking.
Realised I needed something to give me the nicotine hit and help with the 'habit' so went to B&M and bought the E Cigarette kit that they do there and a couple of liquid things.
These things were really cheap and I was a bit suspicious. £6 for the actual vape pen plus 99p for the liquids.
Normally I'd smoke 30g of tobacco a week, which combined with filters and papers probably cost about £13 a week.
Two weeks in I've not had a single desire for a traditional cigarette. I think I'm also using the vape stick less than I would a traditional cigarette. A few puffs on that and I'm good to go rather than feeling obliged to smoke the entire cigarette.
I've also used only half a bottle of the liquid. So I'm looking at less than a pound a month compared to £13 a week. The money is going into a pot labelleg "Gibson SG Fund".
Lungs are feeling healthier but the biggest difference I've noticed is the smell on other people - I now cannot stand the smell of someone who has been smoking. It's like an attack on my senses and has made me adamant i'll never return to it.
My wife was impressed with how I'd been doing so last week bought her her the same kit and she's not had a cigarette either. I've also just bought one for a good friend who has been impressed with our results.
Next stage is to get myself off the nicotine addiction and the habit element to a 100% smoke free lifestyle
So thanks guys you inspired me to do something really positive
