VAPING TO stop SMOKING

SUPPORT TO STOP SMOKING

Good on you for coming this far. Finding support is part of the journey of vaping to stop, and can make the difference in successfully switching.

TALK TO OTHERS

One of the best things you can do is talk to others who have stopped with vaping. Ask them what they wish they knew before they started and if anything in particular helped them through it.

STOP WITH OTHERS

Vaping to stop with other people can be the best support. Ask friends to give it a go with you.

There are online groups and local vaping support groups that you can join. Remember, you’re not alone on your vape to stop journey.

For this participant, online communities offered technical support regarding the use of a device. Others highlighted the emotional support that new vapers can gain from more experienced vapers who had already ‘made the switch’. These participants recognised that because transitioning may be difficult, the online community was an important source of support.

The kids have finally gone to sleep, they can be hard to put down. I go outside to get some fresh air, and a smoke.
