I started at 24mg, got down to 18mg, and am now at 12mg. I'm thinking if I can find something (gluten free) for the next few months while I work myself down to 0mg, that would be wonderful. Because of the rules of the board, if you can recommend something for me to try, a PM would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you." its easy to sign up. The people there wish to continue nicotine addiction and don't care for quitting. If you want to quit smoking and nicotine addiction then QSMB is the place for you and will help you when you decide to.
Goodluck on your quit
If you have any reason to believe that nicotine is demonic or that its risks outweigh the benefits (in your case: possibly mitigating the symptoms of your disease or helping you refrain from smoking), vaping certain strong flavorings like menthol and cinnamon can provide the "throat hit" that many (former)smokers seek and without nicotine (if you choose). Some people find that they use less nicotine over time or are able to wean themselves off slowly, while others prefer to stop using nicotine Cold Turkey, but I'm not your parent so I'll leave that adult decision to you.

Yes, I did read through your entire post.
Again, I can respond in any post I choose to (as can you) You decided to make public your statements and so, I am responding.
If newbies read this, they absolutely CAN apply it to a whole host of "medical conditions" or go into any kind of denial they wish to and it is dangerous, junkie thinking. I am not doing it so much for you as I am for them. I believe it to be grossly irresponsible to suggest that ingesting MORE nicotine in the system to help a medical problem, irresponsible, yet I have not reported YOU.
I responded so that I can allow the newbies to see the fallacy in these statements. As a former nicotine drug abuser I had a whole host of reasons and justifications to "still use" as you have written at the start of this thread. Where I take issue is that the ones that are actually DOING IT? The ones that are working the quit...doing the sometimes VERY HARD WORK are the ones called "harrassers" And so, I addressed it. Simple, AND AGAIN I did not report THAT.
If continuing to use nicotine through an Electronic cigarette is your choice, I have no issue with that, but I do take issue of it HERE as this is a quit smoking site where folks come to OVER-come the entirety of what smoking IS, the puffing of the substance that contains nicotine. NOT find "reasons" to still use. (I could have used the gluten one too,and would have had I known--I was a "still wanting to use, addict".)
Electricman said it best, finding the best way to use electronic cigarettes is on an electronic cigarette using site.
I will, however address your "getting off of nictotine. A BY FAR cheaper method WOULD be to use the patch or gum and use timeframe on the package of the NRT.

Best wished to you! And I hope that you quit and that your quit is a successful--puff and nicotine-free one!

No, wait. If you think "smoking cigarettes was good for me", you're in some sort of deadly fantasyland. You're going to need some really good luck. There's no need to kill the mouse with an atom bomb. Cigarettes not only will take care of your gluten intolerance, they'll take care of you, too. For good.
I sincerely hope your research turns up a better alternative than nicotine to resolve your issues. Otherwise, you're solving one problem while creating several more.
katiem wrote:Thu.....are you here to quit smoking or "get a quit"? You must be relatively new. I have read a few of your posts. OR did you not really want to quit (get help with the addiction of puffing the implement that contains nicotine?) and are just here to make sure that it is STILL and ONGOING addiction to the drug that smoking contains is A-OK....well, OF COURSE it is OKAY with you! You are still addicted. soooooo
How can we be of help to you--to end the on-going, NO END IN SITE puffing of the nicotine? THAT is what this site is all about...
In response to you....One is STILL STUCK with the drug paraphernalia. Getting ride of any and all drug paraphernalia is "quit and more importantly keeping the quit 101" As having that around CAN and and MANY, MANY times IS a MAJOR trigger. As far as the e-cig being cheaper? Not a chance. One still has to BUY the original drug paraphernalia. In addition to the monies you mentioned MIGHT be for the first couple few weeks and then the step-down method of the patch or gum immediately AFTER that would make it infinitely cheaper--as there is a definitive time-frame to get off all nicotine all-together.

I'm sorry, Wintering, but I thought you said "smoking cigarettes was actually good for me". Well I'll be damned, that's exactly what you said. Sorry if I called you out for saying something so ridiculous.
If you are getting to 0 nicotine, then by all means you have my utmost support. No need to reply as you've already stated my posts are useless anyway.
