What is up wonderful people?!
Well I said I would be posting more blah blah so here we go...
So things have been okay but not as super great as they should be going...
Hubby and I have been brainstorming and we have both decided that we are truly ready to quit smoking... we have la-de-da tried to cut down in the past etc.. which in all truthness I have cut down to about 6 a day...
or I can make a pack last about 3 days...
Not great but not smoking 2 packs a day either...
Hubby is the heavier smoker but he has been researching this vape scene.. seems everyone is switching to the vapes.. yes there is still nicotine but they also make them nicotine free where it's just vapor.
Anywho hubby did extensive research and found the one he wanted.
Well he finally got it yesterday and HE LOVES IT.
We are both so excited to start this journey!! I know for certain that I am..
It makes me happy when I think about not being a cigarette smoker.
I can tell you though that I wasn't sure this day would come. Since the day I started smoking many many years ago I have always LOVED smoking...
Idk why... possibly because it's an addiction... but other people were addicted and still hated it.. I loved it..
I did quit while I was pregnant... it was easy to do because smoking actually made me sick.. so giving them up during pregnancy was a breeze.. but of course like a good little smoker I picked it right back up after having my son.
So fast forward 5 years later...
When we moved into this house in October we both decided we were going to move on to ecigs or vapes and be done with cigarettes..
However.. here it is 9 months later and we pretty much forgot that we made that little deal with ourselves... but I can assure you that our wallets have noticed...
After doing the math we have been spending about $300/month on CIGARETTES.
I know right... that is ridiculous!!
Uhhh here take my money and help me die faster...
So I have finally decided deep inside myself that I am ready. (And anything you put after the words "I am" is a pretty powerful thing) I have no more love for this habit or the money that it's costing me to basically dig my own grave.
This is the first time that I have EVER publicly announced that I was going to
quit smoking... I never felt the need to before because I guess I knew that I wasn't too terribly serious and I wasn't ready for all the pressure...
but now when I think about I don't feel pressured...
I have never really had this feeling of doneness with cigarettes before so I am very excited to be moving on. I'm excited for our future. For our health. For our wallets.
The way we have done this is that hubby got his vaporizer first.
He has done extensive research and talked to coworkers etc.. tried out some demos..
So he has purchased a vaporizer that he loves..
Now to find myself something. I tried his out but I don't really know if it's quite my thing. However it is much nicer than smoking a cigarette...
A lot of people try switching to vapes and find that they "don't work" for them or they "don't like" them but believe it or not it's not like smoking a cigarette...
It's a different sensation and you actually have to kinda relearn how to smoke..
But I have figured it out using hubby's and it is much better, tastier, smoother, safer than smoking cigarettes...
He bought a box... I kinda think I want a vape pen of some kind..
Either way I will be getting mine next. Hubby is the heavier smoker so with him quitting my habit will only further deplete.
I have been doing some research and checking out some reviews and I think I have decided which one I want!!! Yay!!!
Going to have hubby check it out with me since he has been doing much more research than I... but I think this is going to be the one.
Looks like I will be getting mine this weekend... YAY.
Well folks this has already been a somewhat lengthy post BUUUT....
I'm excited and you know what... I'm long-winded...
Can't be helped... I keep trying to tone myself down but it is what it is.
I think I will keep this part of our journey updated especially since I have friends and family too.. that I want to come to the bright side of vaping with me and kick the cigarettes..
Your pocket.. and your health will thank you...

My Recent Fav Review YouTube Pages:
If you're looking for reviews... where to start... pros and cons... beginner advice...
this guy at Indoor Smokers is great. Tons of reviews.. tons of information.
I also love Abby! The first video on her page is about her struggle with smoking and asthsma and how switching to vaping has saved her life! She also has a video on the proper way to use the vapes (inhaling and exhaling) and also has tons of reviews!
And here is also a short video from the "Doctors" about ecigs and vaping...
The ecigs are kind of outdated at this point and we have moved on to the vaporizers..
You can watch it here and see what he has to say...
Really the bottom line is... educate yourself.
Use that thing between your ears... read.. watch videos etc..
I just added these links as a great way to get you started on your research..
I hope this information is helpful to some of you!
