Hi @maryanne1! I hope you are having a nice day!
Thank you for starting this discussion. Quitting smoking is an essential move for someone with COPD, therefore I hope you will be able to beat this addiction! I will tag some members, who might have something to say about this. :)

Hey everyone! How are you?
How has your journey with COPD been lately? Were you a smoker? Have you tried vaping? What helped you with quitting smoking?

@Polina.K I just stopped buying them and I still smoke from time to time
@Polina.K I smoked for over 40 years and quit over 15 years ago, long before there was such a thing as Vaping. As long as one is attempting to quit smoking I guess vaping is the lesser of two evils. For anyone who currently does smoke, quitting all together is the best course. I have written about my personal saga several times regarding quitting smoking. The final battle was a collapsed lung after semi-annual severe bouts of bronchitis. Eight days in hospital with the I.V. morphine drip, anti-biotics and steroids helped to start my non-smoking life when released.

vapeing may help but as long as desire is there you wont quit
I don't think vaping is the way to quit smoking it may be harder on your lungs. I used little Nicolette tablets to get over the cravings they worked for me! I still carry them in my purse because it helps me get past the cravings that I still have at times just knowing I have some. Silly I know!
