Re: I Quit Accidentally

Until summer 2015, when I got a bad cold and didn't vape for a week. I fell out of the habit, and didn't get around to picking it up again. I didn't intend to quit - it was an accident.

Ah, that's another thing with habits stored in the basal ganglia*: it's known that STRONG changes to circumstances like illness and accidents do affect them, but there has so far not been a good study on which changes do.

* A good book to read about this is "The power of habits" by Charles Duhigg - very informative, based on proper research and IMHO definitely worth your time if you're interested in how your brain does things.
