easiest way to quit smoking...yay!

About a month ago, I decided I wanted to give up cigarettes, I had tried before and always failed. I've seen countless people using vapes so I figured 'what the hell'. Best decision I've ever made. If you're looking to quit, or just looking for a cheaper option, I recommend this. There's no second hand smoke and you can get yummy flavors without the additives that can, you know, kill you. To make this a debate, or discussion, Oklahoma (my state) is trying to place a tobacco tax on these. Do you think it's fair to tobacco tax a product that has no tobacco?

 I have an appointment next month at the health clinic for a cessation class...I'm excited...after 10 years, I'm ready to kick this habit...

 

And no, I think tobacco taxes should be placed on, you know, actual tobacco...

If you're having trouble with quitting, this is such a good way. You can pick the level of nicotine and wean yourself off. It's so much easier than any other way I've tried.

I tried them and failed, they made me sick after a while but I was reusing the tips so it could have been user error but my chest said no after a while:(  What brand did you go with? Maybe it was a brand issue? 

I would try again if it were affordable and didnt affect my lungs.

I don't use a regular e cig. The vapes use a liquid (you can buy all kinds of different flavors). I'll post a pic.

The pink part is the battery. The top round thing is the atomizer that you put the liquid in. I have watermelon mixed with gobstopper in it now. The bottles cost about $4. I usually go through one every two weeks.

   Good luck on your endeavor, quitting is hard.  But SO WORTH it.

I already feel better and haven't had any of those pesky cravings. I started at 24 nicotine and went down to 18. Hopefully, I'll be at a 12 in two weeks. Fingers crossed!

These are a little more expensive to buy outright. I spent $85 for the starter kit (2 batteries, 2 atomizer, a charger and 2 bottles of liquid) but a friend of mine got hers from craigs list for $20. The liquid only costs about $4 though.

I think placing a tobacco tax on a product that doesn't contain tobacco is a buncha bull!  An,d I'm not even a smoker!
