Vaporise me Baby!

My new electric ciggy

My new electric ciggy

So my eldest daughter, bless her, bought us both electric cigarettes to help us ditch smoking. No tar, just a little nicotine smoked through water vapour – lovely.

Smells nice, burns like a bastard, which is also nice – so we’ll see how this goes.

I can tell already that physically this can work – but ditching the rituals that have been set up over the years will be harder.

Go to balcony, light smoke, sip tea, stare into nothingness while contemplating universe. Finish half the tea, light second ciggy, keep staring at nothing……..

That’s just one ritual/routine that has been established around smoking. If I’m to survive this attempt I have to be creative and learn to fill those spaces that would normally be taken up with tea and cigs.

So for now my electric ciggy is my new dummy. It even comes with a lanyard so I can hang it around my neck. This is the first time ever that I have seriously considered giving up – it may actually work now that I don’t have to go cold. Once I’ve got over the head games with smoking I can change to non-nicotine flavours until I’m finally over the need to puff.

Having smokey dummy but no lung cancer-sounds like a plan I can live with. Until I’m fully committed I will allow myself an occassional ciggy to stave off the worst of my ‘tine denial rage’.

So watch this space – If I can do it, anyone can…….

And if I can’t….well anyone still can!
