    Lo everybody.

    I'm just back after a rather long absence due to serious illness & was hoping to find some "Volcano" user's in this thread but it unfortunately seems to just be about e-cig type vapourizers!

    Hello and welcome back Captain Scarlet, not a volcano user here but I'm certain there are a few who might see this and help you out

    Not a volcano user either but there's a couple around here somewhere I'm sure...

    Seeing this thread makes me realise it's been a year this week since I last had either a nicotine vape or tobacco by itself. Quite pleased with that really, though I won't say I don't miss it sometimes.

    Thanks mate. I don't feel proud but I guess that's sort of the point in a way. The addiction still has one over on me, I know that. If I let my guard down and celebrated with a pack of Richmonds I'd be back to the withdrawl symptoms stage again in a matter of days. Someone once told me there's no such thing as an ex-addict, just an addict who's not given in today, and I think that's a pretty decent way of looking at it. I feel emboldened by how long I've kept it going but not proud because I haven't won yet, if that makes sense.

    Just for the love of God don't mention wine in the same context...

    Been sort of keeping an eye on this thread over the past few months...

    Well I’m about to embark on getting off the snouts ... appointment at quacks tomorrow to get all the help required.

    My chest is fucked these days, As soon as they sacked the 10 packs I now smoke double, Well that and a much more senior position at work has seen me hit nigh on 17-20 fags a day.

    I don’t smoke cigs when I get home as the first thing I do is make a joint. If I’m having a couple beers watching sport or whatever I’ll have about 3-4 doobies. Without beer I’ll have a max of 2.



    I’ve stopped b4 back in 2012 for about 8 months and still managed to smoke joints of an evening. But with 2 teenagers at the time I found myself back on the fags.

    Do you guys in rest of UK get free cessation gear from the pharmacy/ doctors like us in Scotland ?

    Anyway , really need to bin them sharpish

    Cheers mate

    Indeed, vapes ain’t for me I know that for sure. Lungs are fucked from working in shitty lofts n stuff when I was on the tools n doing homers etc. Add that to having asthma (but don’t use an inhaler) add to that smoking hash for 30+ years..... that’s me just in the door , popped into my old pals today , sorted me with various bits of weed, namely Bruce banner , cookie dough and Durban poison ... just for sorting a bit tech lol

    Anyway appointments at 2:30 tomorrow, plan to start the stop on Monday

    Well , into day 1 without cigs

    On the patches and the spray, I would say the spray works tbh , couple of cravings been sorted by it

    The big test is when I get home about 4-5pm when my weed box will be full on winking at me wanting abused

    Cheers Ice, cannae do vapes at all. My chest is that bad tbh

    I pretty much only smoke solid as well so it’s a pipe if nothing else.

    The “one hitters” I used in Spain are good for weed though

    Default Getting off the fags, try and save my lungs.

    Day 3 , still no cigs smoked , had a joint on Monday night and same last night.

    The nicorette spray works fairly quickly , allied with the patch it’s pretty plain sailing

    Big test last night as I had 4 beers and there was a moment I wanted to eat the patches

    What I found helpful was the joint , had a few tokes at a time so about 4 sittings which stretched it out. So I’d say so far so good

    Wait till my projects start for 6 months from next week though

    Nice one, keep it up Subterranean Man

    That part about wanting to eat the patches made me chuckle

    Well still no had a snout since Sunday afternoon.

    Got busted by the chemist wifey tho for partaking in a couple of joints with a mate last night .. just came clean about it . Co2 lung reading down to 7 after blowing 16 last Friday.

    This spray certainly works in conjunction with patches. Hopefully off the patches a week today n I’ll keep the spray to hand.

    Can live with just smoking a joint or 2 a night n no fags all day

    The hard part is now passed

    At your point I was just smoking single skin rollups (weed only) & then went onto my vape as I found I was using the spliffs for a smoking substitute... I'd never smoked so much weed in my life!!

    The vape? Love it - but came to the conclusion its a little too smoking unrelated for my liking (And I care not for edibles)... now I just have a bong... and that works just nicely
