I've used chantix like 5 times now. Since November I've quit with chantix 3x but then just start back up which I just started back a week ago.

Chantix really works but underneath it the problem for me, I guess, is that I just don't really want to stop.

I bought a disposable electronic cigarette and haven't touched it. I've always wondered about them. Since I started back I dont want to mess with the e- cig. I got on eBay to list it only to find they do not allow the sale of e- cigs.

Anyone interested in buying it? Lol.

I keep thinking about just keeping it but I guess I wanted it for when I had already quit smoking. Why? I guess because I never * really* wanted to quit. I think I wanted the ecig for a 'treat' or something. That's how I keep quitting but restarting. The chantix works, I no longer need a cig but then I'll keep having one here and there 'to enjoy'. At the same time I will have quit the daily chantix s o I guess in essence that's me just starting smoking all over again because b4 long I actually NEED one.

For a long time I wouldn't ever try the chantix for long as it makes me really sick and other side effects. Over time I found out that those things are exacerbated mentally. Still the first week of chantix makes me really sick. It comes down to 'if you really want to quit' those initial effects are manageable or so I've found.

Try that ecig Molly. Its worked a treat for me (smoking 20+ years, now on ecigs for 6 weeks and loving it). best get a good brand though, some are useless. I am not recommending any in particular, but check reviews.

To all those trying to quit. After 15 years I did it. It's hard but not as tough as you think. I read the Easy Way to Quit Smoking and seriously quit cold turkey. I'd strongly recommend you try it as well. The other alternatives aren't really dealing with the physical addiction, since they are still putting nicotine in your body.
I remember quitting for 7 years cold turkey. Yes, I sounded as holier than thou as you do here. I couldn't stand to have anyone smoke around me and if I had a drink , I would always bum a smoke...hating myself after.

So after 43 years of smoking (minus the 7 years of not buying cigarettes) I am no longer a cigarette smoker and because of my success...my friends no longer smoke and because of their success...their friends are also coming to me for their vapes and ejuices.

I am in charge of my nicotine intake. That alone is a biggie for me. Just think, you could still relax with a vape with zero nicotine content. When you see a person with a vape you are judging them . For all you know it could be a zero nicotine vape. I have several customers who have wittled down and now only buying zero nic ejuice. WHY?? because they like to vape.

I totaly agree me and my wife smoked for twenty years and thought we would never stop. we were told about personal vaporizers by my friend. so we decided to try it. I found so many web sites that wanted like a 100.00 for a cheezy e-cigarette you throw in the land fill in like a week. its funny how they all say they have the best electronic cigarette...sure they do...any way I found a site called http://smoothsmokevapes/ and have been happy ever since. you can get an e-cigarette starter kit at a super low price and they have a ton of vaporizers to. they even have 80 flavors of e-liquid to choose from with free shipping. check them out we love our vapes....bottom line is e-cigs work so good riddens to cigarettes....

Is this your company? I will flat out say that I do belong to www.takaro.us I don't hide that fact. I would say as far as batteries and clearomizers we are even. I would even say that our ejuice is comparable but having never had that companies liquid , I can not be sure that they follow the same protocols as Takaro Solutions. The owners are a retired nurse and a chef and we have Doctors that we can count as customers. So, I applaud you for stopping smoking and being proactive. Try us out...we even sell soap.:)
