5 Ways Vaping Can Help You Quit Smoking

We hear conflicting reports about the risks and benefits of vaping. It is true that we don’t know everything about the long-term effects of vaping, but many experts can agree on one point based on the available evidence: vaping is a healthier alternative to smoking. With that in mind, let’s look at a few ways vaping can help you quit the tobacco habit.

1. Controlled Nicotine Levels

Vape juice (or e-liquid) can be scaled to contain as much or as little nicotine as the user desires. While some brands do not offer this option, the vast majority do. This allows the user to scale back his or her intake of nicotine over time while never sacrificing the satisfaction of the act of smoking. Many people who have transitioned from smoking to vaping credit the ability to control nicotine levels as their means of success.

2. Cigarette-Like Devices

Not all vaping devices are big and bulky. You can purchase vape mods that fit in the palm of your hand or even compare in size and weight to a traditional cigarette. If you take comfort in simply having a cigarette in your hand, a small cigarette-shaped vaporizer could be the right solution for you.

3. Cost-Effective Solutions

Vaping is a much less expensive habit than smoking for most users. In fact, most e-liquids cost far less by volume than traditional cigarettes and last longer as well. An initial investment in a mod or pen plus a carton’s worth of e-liquid will often cost less than half of what you might pay for a carton of off-brand cigarettes. The long-term cost is even less. The money most people save switching to vaping is enough for even the most avid smokers to at least consider making the switch.

4. Traditional and Non-Traditional Flavors

Most first-time vapers find themselves pleasantly surprised with the familiar flavor of traditional tobacco and menthol vapes. Those who make the transition often find themselves branching out into trying new and interesting flavors. The endless variety helps allay boredom and gives even the avid smoker reason to continue experimenting with different kinds of e-liquids.

5. You Don’t Have to Stop Smoking Immediately

Most people who transition to vaping don’t quit smoking cold turkey right away. A large percentage of vapers are “dual users,” meaning that they smoke cigarettes and use a vaporizer interchangeably, at least initially.

The best news in all of this is that there are no added health risks to augmenting even a heavy smoking habit with vaping. Once they get used to the subtle differences between vaping and smoking, it becomes easier for most users to transition to vaping exclusively. For this reason, we recommend doing your research and determining if a transition to vaping might be right for you.
