Yesterday I was cleaning out my utility room and found an old electronic cigarette. I am not sure how long it's been hidden in a cabinet but I found it. So there is a little push button on the side of it that I stupidly pushed to see if it still worked . Here is the part where I call myself a total idiot because I put this thing in my mouth and inhaled. In a few seconds I get an urge to smoke and a physical craving like a tidal wave. I haven't experienced anything like that since the early days of my quit almost 3 years ago. This certainly was a major warning. I am not sure whether this e-cig had any nicotine left in it and nicotine rush hit me or if my mind just played a trick on me. Nevertheless, based on this experience NOPE concept is reinforced once more - not one puff ever (e-cigs included). In order to get rid of the temptation I drove my 100 lbs dog to the dog park and walked in circles for about an hour. Everything seems to be back to normal now but a WOW moment was definitely there for a little while. Just a word of caution to everyone to be vigilant. Nicodemon is a sneaky creature. Cheers and stay smoke free.
