I fell off the wagon...
I didn't 'go back' to my old brand...I didn't even go back to cigarettes.
But, I did aquire some little cigarette sized cigars....with filters.
I know....I know.....basically a gateway to cigs....
But, I have no intentions on 'smoking'....not at all. All of my batts were uncharged, I was charging....one won't hold a charge for long...etc....
I know.. I type this, it sounds like excuses.... Maybe, but valid. And for some reason, the clearo carts I had all tasted burnt, and I wasted a lot of liquid...and had to throw those out. I had a moment of weakness with e cig frustration....
Guess I just wanted to vent. ;)
Ms Heidi, Do not waste energy beating yourself up, it happens. Just make any adjustments you need to make in regard to backup supplies. We are here for each other and I cannot tell you how this forum and the people have helped me. Hang in and good luck.
Yeah I'm not sure what I'd do if my batts went kaput and/or ran out of ejuice, although I can barely stand the smell of analogs anymore.
Name that movie moment:
Why do we fall sir (ma'm)?
So that we can learn to pick ourselves up.
Hang in there.
As rocco said, don't beat yourself up heidi, use it as a learning curve and invest in backups.
I started on stick batteries, which my wife still uses, but she has started to convert over to the DAV, I will put the tick batteries away in a draw to keep as back ups on top of the back up DAV's I already have, I also keep a stick battery in my work lunch bag too, just in case anything happened at work, not likely as take a zeus and a DAV to work, but want to make sure I am backed up in case.
It is so ok to fall off sometimes.
It happens. It is the ones that you do not smoke that count.

Like everyone else said Heidi, don't sweat it too much. I used to be mad at myself when I gave in and had a cigarette. They still tasted so good! But I eventually got to the place where I decided that I was a vaper and if I wanted a cigarette every now and then I would have one! It took a lot of the stress away and every now and then I would allow myself one. I know many people aren't able to do that or they would go back to smoking full time, but we are all different. It took over 2 years, but I finally reached the place where I would say no when a cig was offered. In fact, this past weekend my sister offered me one and I said no. I seriously thought about saying, ok give me one. But I stayed strong and just kept vaping. Hang in there! The transition can be extremely frustrating, especially when nothing is working right. But as long as you go back to vaping and stick with it, you're still a vaper. I think that is one of the toughest things. We give in and have a cig and feel like a failure so we think, might as well go back to smoking. But that isn't it at all. Hang in there Heidi, it does get better!
Happens to all of us at some point Ms. Heidi. I fell off the wagon more times than I care to mention in my early days. While my last cigarette was 12/23/10, started my journey into vaping on 9/1/10. Keep in mind you learn nothing from success, knowledge is only gained by failure. As you can see you have nothing but support from us here. One of the many reasons I love this forum. :)
