    Still off the smokes. It's been 8 weeks, starting our 9th week now. I am so happy to be still off them.

    o there great the electronic cig, i had one to go to australia with and was smoking it on the plane, the guy at the side of me was a smoker and was dying for one but i was fine. really couldnt reccomend enough!!

    Have now quit for nearly 2 years (still miss it soooo much tho!) i quit when i first found out i was pregnant and havent touched one since- easier when u do it for someone else other than youself.

    well done!!! first few weeks are hardest!!

    They are good, but if you've managed 8 weeks and only had one cig I don't think you need an e-cig. As they're a nicotine delivery system they might have the reverse effect and have you back on the cigs.
    Very well done on your stopping.

    Well I'm just about 6 months off them now, but I have to admit my e cig has been my saviour on many occasions. I think that it is even more valuable to me now than it was in the beginning as I have always got it to go to in those moment when you might give in. Yes it is nicotine, but I find I only use it when I feel like I'm going to give in and have a smoke. Not as an everyday thing!
    Hope that makes sense. Congratulations, you are doing amazing anyway!

    Paddy Puff is in Ireland but seems to be out of stock, try looking on ukvapers forum or allaboutecigs forum, loads of info on there.

    The one I have is elites. It's fantastic, I've bought about 6 of them for friends and family. They often come up in the groupon site, both English and Irish. And deliver to Ireland.

    Fingers crossed for you so! It's a site that offers a one day sale on different products or services. Sometime you can get a good deal. Other times it can be complete rubbish.
