VAPING TO stop SMOKING

TIPS FOR SUCCESS

Switching to vaping replaces some of the things that people miss when they stop smoking, but like any change it has its challenges. Knowing what to expect can help with the transition.

A GOOD STORE

Finding a specialist vape store with a knowledgeable person can make a big difference. They probably know what it’s like to switch to vaping, so don’t be intimidated by the look of the store. If you have any questions as you get used to vaping and your device, go back and check in with them.

A STARTER VAPE

When you think of vaping you probably think of big clouds. Well don’t. Those generally come from low nicotine e-liquid and the large tank style device. They are not suited to people who are starting to stop smoking.

You want a high nicotine, discreet pod or pen style, designed to help stop smoking. Ask if they have starter kits.

TRIAL AND ERROR

It can take a bit of time finding the right device, nicotine strength e-liquid, and flavour. Give yourself a chance to find what is right for you.

NICOTINE MANAGEMENT

Traditional, nicotine salts, high strength, low strength. What does it all mean? Part of a smooth transition is understanding e-liquids.

SOCIALISING AND HABITS

As you go from smoking to vaping, so much will stay the same and yet so much will change. Through it all, it’ll be for the better.

SELF-BELIEF

Be kind to yourself. A lot of people say the biggest hurdle to stopping is believing you can do it. These feelings are normal, and talking to others who’ve been through it can help.

REALISTIC GOALS

It’s good to know that lots of people take two to three months to fully stop smoking and consider themselves a vaper. And that’s ok.

If you’ve got a bigger goal to stop vaping too, many vapers find they get to this stage around the 12-month mark. Don’t rush it. You have a choice of reducing your frequency of vaping over time, and reducing the strength of nicotine in your e-liquid. Only reduce when you feel you won’t go back to smoking, and won’t have to puff more to compensate.
