If you’ve been thinking about how to quit smoking for a while, you probably already know how daunting it is. You might have even tried to go cold turkey, or taper down your cigarette use, only to find that it’s harder than you ever imagined. However, due to the increased risk for smokers of developing serious complications associated COVID-19, there’s never been a better time to quit smoking.
When it comes to quitting, one of the hardest things to deal with isn’t giving up Nicotine; it’s the loss of those engrained (and much loved) smoking rituals. So many of us have cultivated a smoking habit based on rituals such as time of day and social interaction. When you go cold turkey and give up both the ritual and Nicotine, it’s not only jarring, but extremely uncomfortable.
Thankfully, vaping offers a less harmful, and proven, alternative when you’re looking to quit smoking that enables you to manage your Nicotine levels and maintain some of the rituals that get you through your day.
How Can Vaping Help Me Quit Smoking?
A major clinical study from Public Health England, found that smoking an e-cigarette was twice as effective at helping people to stop smoking compared with the patient’s choice of Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT).1
One of the reasons for this is that using an e-cigarette, or refillable vape pod, enables you to maintain your much loved rituals making it easier to make the break away from smoking tobacco. So, when you’re thinking about how to quit smoking you should also consider will your chosen method allow you to hold onto those hard to shift rituals?
Also, one of the many advantages of vaping is that you have more control over how much Nicotine you ingest, which allows you to taper down your levels as you move through the quitting process. In comparison, it’s harder to control how much nicotine you ingest through a typical cigarette, as manufacturers often add more nicotine into the product to compensate for most of it being burned off. It’s also important to note, that Nicotine is not harmful when inhaled, it’s the toxins that are created as the tobacco burns that cause the real damage.
Ibiza Club E-Liquids contain between zero and 18mg/ml of Nicotine, giving you more control over your quitting process. Vaping is 95% less harmful than smoking.1 Using an e-cigarette to stop smoking is the smart choice and proven to help smokers quit for good.
