My boyfriend is trying to use e-cigs as a replacement for cigarettes and he's doing well so far, but I wonder if this is something he could keep up for years?
I'm definitely addicted to vaping and im almost off nicotine completely lol.
No but in all seriousness, this could be something that will finally let him stop smoking and never look back.
For me, as a full flavor menthol smoker that REALLY liked to smoke, it was all about the juice and the right vaporizer. Additionally, when starting out I had to make sure to keep my vape close during those crucial times such as after eating, first thing in the morning, etc. Doing this for a few weeks while only smoking a few at random times, will eventually lead to forgetting to light up a real cig for longer periods of time.
I found a good tobacco juice and mixed it with some Extreme Ice from mtbakervapor.com. Regular menthol flavored juices didnt cut it, I needed the extreme ice to get it to where my real menthol cigs were, mint wise.
I made sure to order the juice in a 50/50 blend so that I got that really nice throat hit and nice amounts of vapor to go with it. Having a little more vapor than what you get with a real cig was enticing to me and kept me vaping
As for the nicotine, just make sure he doesn't downgrade the mg amount to fast, there is no rush. Right now it's all about breaking the physical habit of smoking first.
After 7 months, I can't bear to light up a real cig let alone smoke the thing, and I have tried a few times just to check my progress. I end up having to wash my mouth out with a good hit off my vape lol.
