Vaper Still Craving Cigs https://ift.tt/3nzI3bK

Hey guys,

I only recently started my vaping journey and I need some help.

A little bit of a backstory, I started smoking in 2010 on and off and very casually, generally only when I went out. This continued until 2013 when I went to college and I started smoking everyday of the week, during weekend I would only smoke if I went out. In the beginning of 2014 was enrolled in a distant learning university, so I studied from home and went back to casual smoking over weekends. At the end of 2014 I had started a part time job and I was back to everyday smoking and this continued for a few years. In 2015 I tried a Twisp device, but it didn't work and ended up in a drawer, then I tried a Smok Vape Pen 22, but I coughed out a lung and a half and I decided to chuck that in a drawer as well and continued to smoke the stinkies.

Only recently in 2019 my sister introduced me to Nic Salts and I loved it, I didn't cough, there was no harsh throat hit and I felt fine, better than fine actually. So the first chance I got, I went out and got myself a little pod and I've been working my way up.

But I still had cravings for tobacco, and the one night I just gave in and brought myself a pack. I dual vaped and smoked for a while and about a few months ago I got vapers tongue, it wasn't with a very strong flavour, but it did still bother me a bit. Then lockdown came and in my country all smoking and vaping products were banned by the state. I had managed to stock up on juice and smokes, but my smokes ran out pretty fast. Then the dreaded moment came and I was on my last drop of juice, but I managed to get a juice "dealer" and I managed to still get my nic fix. The cigarettes that were being sold on the black market were crap, the type of crap with a tone of tar and the proper brands were very expensive. My cravings for real tobacco was vaporized.

But recently the cravings have started coming back and I made the very stupid decision to buy an IQOS device and boy did I hate it, it doesn't taste like a cigarette at all and it knocked me sideways, I even struggled to vape for a few days. I smoked 5 Heets, 1 in my car just after I bought it, 2 at home later that night, 1 the night after, and 1 the night after that and I haven't craved a Heet since then, but I still at times crave a good old proper cigarette.

So my question is, what can I do about the cravings? I don't really want to up my Salts, by how can I keep the cravings at bay? I was never really a heavy smoker, smoked between half a pack to a pack a day, depending on the day, sometimes when I went out I would smoke a bit more. I also don't smoke everyday, since the ban I made a point of "saving" my smokes. Since the ban has been lifted I have only brought one pack of smokes. But I've scared that the cravings will remain.

Do you guys have any suggestions that could help? I was thinking of buying a box of smokes and only using it when I really need to, but I don't know if I should, maybe I should just get a tobacco flavoured juice to use. But please I'm open to suggestions.
