Accidentally combusting fuckin ruins my day/night. Fuck combustion. Nasty.
another good category would be "I only vape now but its hard not to give into peer pressure when your friends are combusting in front of you"
and then i take 1 toke and am instantly reminded of why i stopped.
I was there before. A few months more and a girlfriend who hates smoke as much as me, and it helped me say no. My own sister thought I quit weed for a while. Yeah right!
Yeah! Fuck combustion! I have smoked a couple of cigarettes, or cigars or joints but I never enjoyed it much. You know why? Because only filthy peasants do that. We are the vaporization master race!
I'm currently at 12 days of no combustion. Kicking tobacco joints. Iv got the equipment to do the job though. Vapexhale cloud, volcano digit, mighty, arizer air and a decent enail set up and collection of glass. (Not claiming my collection is anywhere close to some of the people's on here.) Iv also got access to very high quality flowers and concentrates which seeing as I'm in the UK isn't bad going.
I keep succumbing to the temptation of the tobacco joint. I think this time Iv really managed to break the back of it. 12 days ago I smoked 2 joints and before that I'd been smoking once a week. I used to smoke a Q a day in 15-20 tobacco joints.
I'm loving vapour now though. The cloud the mighty and the enail make a joint look pitiful.
Currently lungs are clearing. How long would you guess the phlegmy cough will last? Do dabs/vapes clear the lungs out quicker? I'm using an ecig for nicotine.
My usage had already almost halved which is obviously a good thing.
Thank you to this forum and every one on it. I have been lurking for years and the posts here have really helped the quitting process. Everyone round where I live smokes tobacco joints mainly.
Also my nose and sinuses are a mess. Is this a symptom of quitting smoking or a reaction to vapour?
Congrads on 12+ days of no combustion. You certainly have the arsenal to take it down. If you have a lot of choices to get your vapor then there is less likely of a chance to fall to combustion.
You might feel different past the 2 week mark. Your sense of smell and taste might enhance. Less coughing. You are already halved your usage simply by quitting combustion this far along. Which is impressive. But then again you have some heavy hitting vapes.
Tobbacco urges only last a second after you quit entirely, I've found and if you are distracted enough, the urge leaves as quickly as when you felt it. These impulses will be further apart and less of an urge and more of a sensation that passes the further you get from quitting. Good luck!
Cheers for the advice mate.
I did ALOT of reading on here and bought what I considered to be the best vapes on the market. I thought that if I had them I'd have no excuse to smoke.
Almost 3 years without combustion (even with butane vaporizer), i can't smoke anymore even more when the weed is mixed with tobacco... the taste and the "high" when i'm vaping is so wonderfull and you can feel the difference between strains, it' s awesome !!!
Iv read that as my lungs clear out they become more efficient at absorbing the vapour. Have other people noticed this?
Does this lead to noticeable differences in amount used and high achieved?
Cheers for everyone's replies
I don't know about that. Let us know what subtleties you notice! One thing I did notice is that post combustion, lung power increased. I've been vaping and rarely combusting for the past year+ and it feels like I have iron lungs! I can take DEEP breaths! It's like I get high off the oxygen sometimes. Increased headrush and all, I have to be high to feel it though. So maybe not. lol.
But seriously, I'll just be sitting there after having taken a hit a while ago, will just take in a lung full of oxygen purposefully expanding my lungs to the max, and headrush.
I've been practicing deep breathing for a few years since I learned that breathing deeper burns more calories, so I try to make all my breaths deep breaths, but it doesn't always work out. I don't do it with automated breathing but I'm working on that.
That didn't used to happen when I combusted.
After only 12 days I can feel that my lungs are better already. I have a dog and her walks are already much easier. Walking up hills used to really take it out of me.
I'm not even tempted to have a joint tbh. Iv got the cloud and the enail heating up. OG berry going in the cloud and London lemon wax going on the nail. It's a beautiful site tbh.
The flavours im getting now make smoking seem stupid. Also the main reason I use mmj is for my Crohn's disease which is terrible atm. Only doing a dab when I'm in pain is so much quicker than a joint. And it smells and costs less. And it's healthier.
I hope your all having a good day.
I've been vaping for around 3 yrs now, the benefits from vaping is unbelievable, when I was cumbusting I would cough up nasty chit every morning, I couldn't hold my breath no longer than 10 seconds. Since I started vaping I do not cough up chit in the mornings and I can hold my breath for 30+ seconds if need be, feels like I have new lungs!. I'm a true fan of VAPING and will not go back to combustion! But I will say when I'm out and about and come across friends and they spark up a fatty I will indulge . But I have to say now that I have been vaping for so long that every time I toke on a "joint" it taste like smoking a piece of wood . It taste like . And it doesn't matter what type of herb it is even the great tasting herb(in a vape). Does this happen to anybody else? Just curious
Yes, Yes and Yes. I also believe you can become more sensitive to vape signatures. And develop a whole palette for vapor. I also vape mints, chamomile, lemongrass and lemon balm.
Tobacco and MJ are almost opposites as far as combustion is concerns. Tobacco plugs up the lungs. MJ tears or is an expectorant. Not a good combo. A holdover from the days of poor quality MJ.
Vapor is water molecules and is absorbed differently through the lung tissue. So... If your lungs are cleaner, you will vape better and have less of a cough once you get past the initial cleaning out.
But that coughing is O.K as long as you are not straining/tearing your lung tissue.
Almost the two year mark for me other than a few goofs. Combustion seems so crude of a method to get the actives.
Thank you for your reply.
Can I ask what benefits you receive from vaping the chamomile etc?
As a Crohns diseases sufferer I'm always on the look out for herbal remedies. The pharmaceutical industry have failed me.
Day 12 nearly done. Didn't feel like smoking all day today
There is the ethnobotanical thread at FC for info about different plants and herbs. Chamomile has some benefits as a tea and has a certain mellow to it when I vape it.
I am choosy as to what flowers I get as far as Chamomile and it can leave a persistent oil in some vapes. The EVO I use is no prob. Just ISO soak the screens. Other vapes can even clog, so use caution and read up.
Mint, Lemongrass, etc. The other plants have their own effects if you want to read some older posts. There are others more knowledgeable than me on the subject their too.
Vaporizing is a form of extraction, so instead of adding water like in a teas, you are cooking the water out. To grossly oversimplify. And you get the oils also. Yes, I use a French Press for coffee for the same reason.
There are some Crohn's disease sufferers on the thread and I'm guessing in the FC medical related forums to. IF that helps with your quest.
Day 12? No cravings? You are well on your way.
You are going well mate.. your vape arsenal is surely helping...
If you have access to concentrate and high quality herbs in the UK, then smoking is a waste anyway...
I cant imagine setting light to my shatter...
What a waste that would be...
So it's day 13 for you now, if you leave it long enough, when you do finally cave and smoke some joint, it should be disgusting enough to discourage you.... not to mention the groggy shit effects... such an anticlimax...
I felt shit for about a month last year when I quit smoking, got every cold and sniffle going...it will pass...
Anyway nice to see more UK fcers, specially with access to good quality products...
Vaping doesnt really work without it...
I buy streetweed every now and then. And I'm always disappointed...
Never cured...and badly grown...
I live in Hertfordshire...
Ill stick to what I produce....
Are you a farmer????
Oh and stopping smoking will give your lungs chance to clear some tar and other shit... this will expose your cillia, (tiny lung hairs), making them more efficient at absorbing the active compounds we enjoy...
Good luck with the fucking of combustion...
Cheers for the advice. Yeah my lungs feel so much clearer. Day 13 is going fine. Iv now got such a selection of vapes flowers and concentrates joints that are redundant. The lemon biscotti wAx on the enail is literally Orgasmic.
Why would I use 4x more weed to get less stoned. It really makes me see how addictive the tobacco part of the joint is.
I'm living in Brighton. We've got it good down here. Check out your local cannabis social clubs. for the next year I'm not a farmer but iv got 7 years organic growing experience and I'll be starting up again next summer.
I will check out the ethnobotanicals thread.
Again thank you for eVeryones support and advice.
You UK growers always make me think of some dude from some movie, where it's dystopia or something like that, but on the outskirts of the UK there lives a grower, who is extremely pleased to be growing strawberry tasting strawberry cough. I think he dies in the scene they introduced him, but damn, that man set off my cool-meter.
I wish I had more details. I don't remember that movie. I wanted to say it was District 9 but I think that takes place in the US. Sorry for the derailment. Let us know if you remember that cool strawberry cough grower. When the apocalypse comes, I'll have my priorities straight too, growing good weed!
I'm reaching the end of day 13 with no joints.
I don't know why but I'm tempted to smoke this evening. Iv got the EVO in front of me fired up and I'm still wanting to smoke.
I don't really understand why. I have an ecig giving me nicotine and the EVO for green why would I want a joint.
I assume it's some hard wired nostalgia that will take some time to shift. I did smoke for 17 year.
It happens.... I was still getting smoke cravings for months....
But the few times i did give in, it was horrible so put me off again....
Do you have a vapcap...???
I really think it would help people to be true combustion fuckers...(thread relevance)
More similar to smoking a joint, it may sctratch that itch....
I don't have a vapcap iv never heard of them before. I'll have a look into them. Thanks for the advice.
Day 14 today. Got the mighty heating up.
If I may make one suggestion, and especially because you are on a positive track?
Maybe taper the nicotine use down as well while you are in this process; make it all one 'thing'. We see you are fucking combustion, but the process may be taking a high degree of your attention. Focus some of that on being as dramatic with the stopping of another habitual behavior.
The stopping means changing behavior patterns, so I guess I'm suggesting you might include a little more change since your are working at it already.
My path has been different, but I can say that after leaving all combustion behind I began to notice that air itself tastes fucking great.
I'm new to vaping so I still combust from time to time.
I can't leave the backwoods alone, but I am slowly moving towards "fuck combustion" because I like being able to breathe after I get high.
@Squiby hope you don't mind me using your post???
you say it better than I would, and are far wiser on this matter than me....
Cheers for that mate I'll have a look into them. Nifty little things innit.
I'm on day 14 of no combustion today. Lungs feel so much better.
