Today marks 6 months since I put down my last pack of cigarettes for good. It has been quite a journey. Starting with a simple cigalike kit and advancing into bigger batteries, clearomizers and liquids.

Life has dealt me a really bad hand this year and have been suffering through major anxiety and stress issues but I still have not caved. And the temptation is not even there. In my past attempts to quit I have always caved from way less. Looking forward to that 1 year mark that in all of my previous attempts at quitting I have never hit.

Reference my previous thread:

I don't think the savings were that much for the first 2-3 months. I was trying out different things and spending quite a bit doing it. I think I totaled it up one day and it was just a little less than I would have spent on cigs. But the health savings are priceless. Now that I have settled in on what I like I spend about $40-$50 max a month. So maybe after the next 6 months I will treat myself.

Congratulations! I quit almost 6 years ago, pack + a day for twenty years. I have cheated a couple of times and bummed one only to take a puff and wonder how I ever put up with the taste. Now if I can only quit chewing!

Congratulations on quitting. I quit Jan 27 2012 and wished I did it sooner. When my wife had a brain tumor operation which caused me a lot of stress I ate a lot of hard candy. She has fully recovered and I didn't go back to the cigarettes. You can and will make it. Ride long and enjoy life to the fullest.:D
