day 16 using v2cigs to quit smoking

ok, so I did slip up yesterday and had 1 cigarette yesterday, but I'm back on track now and doing great. Today is my 16th day trying to quit and I still think I'm doing much better then I would if  I did not have my v2 cig, I really do believe it is helping me.

3 days without cigarettes

I have not had a regular cigarette for 3 whole days now, the v2 cig is working pretty well, I do want a regular cigarette every once in a while but I just use my v2 and I'm ok. So far so good. I do tend to get a little hyper, especially in the evening, I feel like I'm getting to much oxygen, lol.

<a href="" target="_blank">Upgrade Your Health with V2</a>

My v2 ultimate kit was delivered yesterday around 5pm. I started using it right after dinner yesterday and I have only smoked 3 regular tobacco cigarettes since I'v started using the v2 and its going very well, not bad for the first 24 hours. I don't feel edgy or cranky or anything. I normally smoke a little more then a pack a day so for me to only have 3 in 24 hours is a great day. I really think this is going to work.  If your thinking of quiting or at least trying to cut down and would like to give the v2 a try you can get 15% off by using the link below and putting in 199131 for the discount code

Quit smoking

This post is off my normal subject of coupons and drugstore sales but I thought it might be worth sharing. I have been a smoker for many years and have wanted to quit for a very long time. Yesterday, after doing much research on all the different brand of ecigs I finally placed an order at v2cigs. From all the wonderful reviews I have read they seem to be the best ecig out there and I have looked into many. I placed the order late last night and it has already been shipped, in less than 24 hours!! I thought this was a good start as far as how good there service is. Once my order arrives and I try it out I will post updates on how well it actually works for me. I am very excited to get started and really hope to become a non smoker very soom, wish me luck and I will keep everyone updated. If you are a smoker ready to quit you can check out this company and there product line by clicking the link below. They are running a special right now and there is also a 15% off coupon code that is good until August 1st 2011. The coupon code is ECR15.

Cvs shopping trip 6/12/11 $5.13 oop saved $21.95

oop $5.13
saved $21.95
Total YTD Cvs savings $2153.84

 Today I started out with only $8.98 in ecb’s. Although Last weeks trip was great and I saved $103.77 and even got a free gazebo it left me with very little to work with for this weeks sales and the free CVS gift cards I ordered with my Pnc bank points didn’t arrive yet so I had more out of pocket then normal, but everything I purchased today comes out to be free with the ecb’s earned and I have increased my ecb’s spending power from $8.98 to $14.99. If I wanted to spend less oop I could have have purchased these items in separate transaction and used the ecb’s earned on each for the next item and would have only spent a few cents but I choose to spend a little more oop and do just one transaction so I could increase my ecb’s to get back in the game faster.

Fix to my low ecb's situation

Since my last CVS shopping trip left me with only $5.98 in ecb's, oh my! I did 2 things to help get them up a little. First I went back to Cvs today and bought 2 John Freida products for $5 each and used 2 $5 coupons and received $3 ecb's for that deal and paid $0. Now I have $8.98 ecb's. Second, I checked my pnc bank point balance and had enough points to get 3 $10 CVS gift card for free and also got a $25 Kohls gift card while I was at it. The $30 in free gift cards will really help me to still shop with little or no oop while I work at getting my ecbs back up quickly. I will however try to see how long I can make the gift cards to last.
