Can vaping help me quit smoking?
It’s October, the time of year where people join in the stoptober campaign and promise to ditch the fags for a full month, with the view of quitting all together once the time is up. This October is the first year in which the campaign for stoptober has featured vape pens and e-cigs as a suggested way to quit, along with gum and patches.
You might be sceptical as to whether swapping smoking for vaping is going to work, you might be wondering “can vaping help me quit smoking?”
I’ve seen it for myself, many times. Friends and family have finally come off the fags and found that after failing on the patches and the gum, vaping really has worked for them. Customers of Vape and Juice have found the same, some who had the same concerns as to whether vaping really can help smokers quit.
But, let’s look at the actual research. This year three studies have shown that vaping is a valid way for smokers to kick the habit. A study by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that e-cigs were the most popular product for smokers to use as a quitting aid. In July a study found that more smokers who use e-cigs succeed in giving up for good.
An estimated 2.9 million adults in the UK vape and have found vaping as a great tool to help the to quit smoking. Vaping allows you to keep up the act of smoking, without the harmful chemicals making it an ideal way for smokers to quit.
You might be worried that vaping can’t help smokers quit because you’re still taking in nicotine. However with vaping you can gradually reduce your nicotine intake from 18mg right down to 3mg and then finally 0mg.
