So… smoking is one of those things, that if you want to be a winner, you have to quit. I have in the past tried quitting in numerous other ways from the patch to going cold-turkey. I’m not religious, but once, I even left my pack at the door of a local church. the next morning, the pack was gone but the need wasn’t – sucks to be me. (Literally and figuratively).
I was left with 2 options. The pill – an anti-depressant which canhelp curb the appetite for nic, but has a serious set of side-effects, including but not limited to suicidal thoughts. This kinda answers the question of “Would it kill ya to quit smoking?”
The other option is eCigs. Plenty of names for these things, but they’re basically the same thing wrapped in different packages.
A power-source which heats small amount of liquids into a vaporous form, which can be inhaled through a pipe. The liquid can be flavourless or be flavoured in a myriad of ways, and it can contain varying amounts of pharma-grade liquid nicotine.
Cute, eh. You can reduce the percentage of Nic as you go. The batteries can be recharged 300 times, each giving you 4-5 hours of vaping (if you leave the unit on all the time) or quite a bit more if you turn the thing off when not smoking/vaping.
So far, so good.
I’m going to use this blog to keep tack of my path to quitting and perhaps some colour-commentary as well.
