It would also help if we knew what your recipe is. 1 bubble every 15 seconds isn't very slow for cider, I wait to rack my Apfelwein until I can count a full minute between bubbles (generally after about 4 weeks).
Like Yooper Chick said, ciders take a while. 8 days is nothing, depending on what your recipe is, and which yeast you used, you shouldn't be ready to rack for 3 - 4 weeks at least. My only suggestion is to make sure you have another batch going so you have something to drink while you wait for the next batch to finish...
I recommend Apfelwein if you want something quick and dirty, it only takes about a month to finish, and if you rack it and let it sit for a second month, it only gets better.
Either way, RDWHAHB...
