Last weekend Stacie and I decided to try and quit smoking. I went into town on Saturday and picked us up a couple of vaporizer starter kits to get the ball rolling. We both smoked a pack to a pack and a half a day of full flavored cigarettes which has roughly 18mg of nicotine per cigarette as best as I can tell.

Since Saturday I have only smoked one cigarette a day on Sun, Mon, And Tues and that was just taking a couple puffs here and there and never smoked an entire cigarette at once on those days. Stacie's results are similar to mine and neither one of us smoked at all yesterday which was Wednesday.

We started with an e-juice that contains 6mg of nicotine. At times during the first couple of days we both felt slightly nauseous at times but that has seemed to pass now after 4 days. I am thinking that next week we will try to further reduce our nicotine intake with an e-juice that contains only a 3mg avg of nicotine.

So far I am happy with the way things are going and have been very surprised that we were able to basically stop smoking immediately. The very first day that we were using the vapes, we did not need or even want to smoke a cigarette after dinner which to me is no small feat. Any smokers out there will know what I mean.

Hopefully we can continue to wean ourselves off of the nicotine and maybe even get rid of the vapes too after we have curbed our appetite for the nicotine. At the very least we have cut out a lot of other harmful ingredients in cigarette smoke almost immediately so this is a kind of progress that is very encouraging. This is the 2nd morning where I did not smoke a cigarette with my morning coffee, a ritual that I have had for most of my life and it's just incredible to me how easy the transition has been so far. It is still very early in the game but we are optimistic that this could work out very well for us if our dependence on cigarettes can further be reduced as we move forward.

Anyone else had any success with quitting smoking in this way, or other ways? This is our weapon of choice at this time in our quest to beat smoking.

There have been an increasing amount of RIP posts in these forums as we know and have talked about in the forums. I ran across this article today that shows some interesting statistics and what it may mean for the music industry as we loose these mega stars and thought I would share it here for discussion.

I ran across this fretless Kramer on Craigslist today and texted the owner asking to take a look at it. It's kind of hard to go wrong for $50.
What do you guys think?

Well I finally got one. I spent a few hours last night getting to know her and so far my first impressions are good. Now I have to force myself to read the manual to really get familiar with the all the options for setting it up and quit playing guitar for a bit. biggrin.gif
