I'm on the verge of smoking :(

The ecig just isn't doing it for me lately. I'm very close to buying rollies

Nooooo! How long have you been off the cigs? Maybe a new liquid would help, ring the changes a bit?

I got a bit restless after about 5 months on the e-cig and got a stronger battery thing (sorry, I'm not well up on the vaping lingo!) which really improved the 'kick' without having to get a stronger liquid... maybe try that and give it another week or so, see how you go?
I'm off the cigarettes just over a year now (a year on the 5th of May if I remember correctly) and even though I wasn't a heavy smoker, only had about 12 a day, I've saved €2000 even taking into account what I've spent on e-cig stuff.
I had 2 drags of someone's cigarette around Christmas and although it was nice, I know I won't go back. If you can stick with the e-cig another while you just might turn the corner, it's so worth it!

Are you still trying to vape at very low voltages? I'd stop that first and just go with something sensible like 4V or 13W or something. Maybe splash the cash on a decent battery and a GS Air tank. I think I remember you were using a Pro Tank but there's much better stuff out there. The GS Air is only a tenner. It'll be cheaper in the long run than a pack of baccy a day.

The problem is I have to go to Dublin tomorrow leaving at 4 in the morn and I won't be home until about 11 the following day. When the battery goes on the ecig I won't be able to charge it so I'm bound to smoke then. I kind of want to smoke tbh tho I know il b able to give up again. Sounds childish I know but I'm actually dying for one

Ya I was using the pro tank. I'm using an maxi bvc now I think it's called that? It was doing me grand but not anymore I'm afraid

You're making excuses for yourself - you could pick up a spare battery anywhere in Dublin for the price of a packet or two of cigarettes!
I spent years saying 'I know I can give up again', a friend of mine used to say 'giving up smoking is easy, I've done it loads of times', but you've been off them 4 months now, I suppose you just have to decide whether you want to jump back on the smoking train or stay off it once and for all

Its entirely your choice, but if you're the kind of person who spent their time while smoking, giving out about smoking and I'll give up on monday etc etc then you're better off spending some coin to get a better set up. 30w iStick and GS Air or even Nautilus mini atomiser and it will change your view on the whole thing. Hell, go crazy and get a sub tank mini or atlantis atty and it will blow your head off. Also, get better juice, I even tried a great tobacco flavour in eCirette (Talbot St) the other day which was really nice, and I hate tobacco flavours.

Most people who start using the kind of thing you have now soon find its not delivering enough punch and upgrade. Happiness ensues.

As I said earlier its your adult choice, and your lungs. I think you'll regret going back on the smokes in short order.

This will probably go against most of the advice you'll get on here. If you feel you are 100% deffo going to smoke my advice would be don't go back to what you know (brandwise). Buy 20 Marlboro red of something strong.

Smoke as many as you can in 24 hours and trust me you'll be back to vaping tomorrow. Then buy some new shiny vape gear.

That's fine (imo), go back to the regular smokes for a bit and give the ecig another go soon.

I mix myself. I smoke regulars at home but always smoke ecig outside the home (at work, pub, travelling etc).

As a previous smoker now non smoker going on about 5 years now. Just cool the jets there and take it down a notch and step back. I was once where you are now five years on. You'll get these temptations, you cant just give in every time. I don't use an ecig, but just wanted to throw that in there. Ciggerates will be there in an hour and ten years down the line don't be panicing they ain't gonna run out of them. Stick it out. Four months is excellent work.

i get this too, like not craving for smokes or anything but that im not getting enough of a hit from the battery. i always carry a spare or two as im only using an ego atm (that will change eventually) but as soon as i put the fully charged battery on i get a good hit. I ihave noticed indoor vaping is far better than outdoor vaping and i havent the foggiest idea as to why!

honestly lad, just get another battery in dublin you have done amazing work to stay off them for so long tomorrow is one day, say to yourself i wont smoke tomorrow and try ....if afterwards your dying for a fag no one can stop you!!!! but give yourself a target, in fact pick up some new stuff in the shops in dublin when your up!

Personally i love the whole idea around vaping it feels lik xmas when something pops in the door that was bought online, admittedly its only juices or new batteries or clearomisers but it sure beats the feeling of buying a box of fags everyday. for me anyways

I've noticed this too. I don't notice it as much now that I'm vaping between 15 and 20 watts. So, that's another thing to look forward to when you move up from the egos.
