    All I can say is not to give up.

    You've done the first and hardest step already, so hang in there because this is just a phrase. It might feel like a lot to spend when you're out of juice, but when you do have it, you'll save so much more and no doubt, feel healthier as well.

    I know the feeling.. I like my cigs and I'm really trying to just vape but I keep finding myself buying cigarettes. It's just easier to get cigs than it is to get juice in my area. I don't have transportation so a few minute walk to the store for a pack of cigs when out of juice is more suitable to me than going with out until I can get juice. I just don't know that I can solely just vape. I'm only new to vaping though so I should probably give it some more time before I really make a decision on that. I'm determined to give it a real shot!

    I finally gave up smoking after of 20 years of the habit purely because I could no longer justify to myself the percentage of my disposable income that it was eating up. I still had enormous trouble doing it, and I was well prepared with vaping supplies. I would imagine that trying to quit smoking during your final exams might be one of the worst possible times to cut down, or even change to a vape. Concentrate on your exams as much as you can, and then get back to vaping afterwards if not smoking ts too much stress for you right now. Work hard on those exams, they are the most important thing for you right now.

    There are definitely ways to minimizing your spending on your juice supply. I can understand wanting to constantly smoke, but you do need to realize that you're taking in enough nicotine to give you that cigarette. If you are someone that tends to take puffs all day, you may want to turn down the temperature and get more out of your vape. You may also want to look into buying in bulk. When ordering in bulk, you will save money in the long run. :)

    Cigarettes have a different chemical load. You can't just expect to vape naturally and not hit the withdrawal, all it saves you from is the nicotine. Fortunately, the nicotine does most of the heavy lifting from my experience. You just need to keep very, very few cigarettes near you, break those first few days through and the positive changes will build momentum for you.

    If you think that the vaping is too much, you should cut it for a while. I mean if you are in a place where every cent matters you can stop smoking, vaping, drinking, eating out going to the cinema etc. It does not mean that you have to stop these things forever but a little break may help.
    Keep going strong!

    If you want to quit nicotine completely, trying getting nicotine-free liquid. Vape some liquid with low nicotine a few times during the day but vape only the non-nicotine liquid for the most part. This way, you'll be greatly reducing nicotine intake without forgoing the pleasure of vaping.

    Vaping should also work out A LOT cheaper than smoking tobacco.

    There is nothing like an addictive personality, it's just the way you look at yourself. You need to break down those walls and then see that you can build yourself exactly the way you want to be. Switch to vape or if you really can't seem to enjoy it, try and buy tobacco and roll it yourself, it is much cheaper. I've spent big amounts of money careless in the past, when I simply could go to the store and buy some tobacco (with about the price of 2 packs I would've had enough to smoke for a week). Do not spend money carelessly especially if you have options.

    I'm sure many of us have been in similar situations. You may be in a bad place right now, but you'll be fine. I'm sure there are plenty of people around that can help you out.

    Hi! First of all, thank you for having the courage to share this story of yours. Not all vapers would be honest enough to admit that they still smoke cigarettes. Although your reasoning is more of financial constraints. I do understand you still because from my country, vaping is very expensive. Initially, I thought I can save money after switching to vaping but with all the mods, juices and nicotine, it's just too much. I ended up spending more during those first few weeks. Eventually, I gave up nicotine and become contended with just one device. I have also discovered which juices and flavours are worth buying.

    So maybe just this time, you can resort to cigarettes. But don't forget to save up enough money, enough to last your vaping needs for at least two months. Then you can go back to vaping and it will be easier to save up money for the next few months since you already have a backup money for the first two months. And of course, don't forget to save for your emergency funds as well. It's not easy but it can be done, just a few more side jobs and maybe online jobs, and you can earn enough for your vaping. Good luck and I hope this helps you!

    Truly. Is not that easy to withdraw cigarettes forever even with vapers righ behind you. You can do this, vaping is cheaper than cigarettes in the long run, so in my opinion it's a chance to better assess your expenses. So true that one must be prepared to get into vaping, but that doesn't mean it's rocket science. Go austerity mode for a little while and prioritize finding a plausible nicotine's supply.
