Smokefree days: 42
Total savings: $1,344

Kia Ora,

I use to have 15-20 smokes a day. A lot of friends had made the switch to vaping (mainly to the small one available at BP or Z that rhymes with MALT, with 4% nico). After a few weeks of making the plan to quit one Monday I bought a pack and the vape. I gave myself a week grace period where I could only have that one pack and I could use the vape.

One week later I ran out of smokes and I made the full time switch to vaping. I’m happy to say that I’m 6 weeks in since I quit and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to make the change.

My next goal is to change full time to the 0% nico, which I am doing at the moment :)

By all means, please try and quit without the need to switch to vaping, but I hope my experience helps in some way to others considering the switch or going through a similar journey :)
