Oh man, cool thread.
I totally vape. I didn't think about what I'm going to carry on the hill until right now.
Vaping helped me ditch cigarettes in a way that I was totally unprepared for. I was prepared for months of withdrawal, false starts, feelings of personal failure and sadness etc. That was pretty much my experience with the patch.
But vaping (maybe because it mimics smoking, I don't know) has gotten me off the cancer sticks for nearly 6 months now. I have my bad moments but its not a constant struggle either.
