VApril 2022

VApril, a month dedicated to recognising the power of vaping compared to other nicotine replacement therapies (NRT).

Did You Know: “Using a vaping product as part of a quit attempt in local stop smoking services had some of the highest quit success rates – between 59.7% and 74% in 2019 and 2020” (NHS Stop Smoking Services).

Are you ready to take that leap and “join the 2.4m former smokers who have quit for good through turning to vaping?” (Action on Smoking and Health (ASH)).

The 5 Step Guide to Vaping

Step 1: Understanding your smoking habits

Understanding your smoking habits, lifestyle choices and health goals is essential for healthcare professionals, stop-smoking and vape specialists to give you customised advice on the best course of action to quit smoking.

Step 2: Types of vape devices

Seeking the right type of vape device is critical. It is important that your choice of device is easy-to-use and satisfies your cravings and fits with your daily routine.

Step 3: Nicotine levels

The required nicotine strength will greatly depend on your smoking frequency and what brand of cigarette you smoke. It will also be shaped by your goals and whether you want to quit tobacco or quit tobacco and nicotine.

You should look to adjust your nicotine strength if it is either not satisfying your cravings or is too strong. It is important to ensure that your nicotine intake closely mirrors the same level delivered when smoking.

Step 4: Know your flavour options

Flavour plays a key role in helping an ex-smoker remain an ex-smoker. All vapers who have switched from smoking are different so it’s important to be open to different flavours to ensure you find the right one for you. This is a key part of your quitting journey.

Step 5: Remember, every cigarette not smoked is a win

Don’t worry if you feel that you are not making the progress you had hoped for when transitioning from smoking to vaping. For some, it doesn’t happen overnight. Don’t be tempted to give up if you feel you are craving more nicotine, or if the nicotine strength is too strong. It might be as simple as needing to tweak the nicotine levels up or down.

Just reduce by one cigarette at a time and take as long as it takes – it’s not a race to the end. We know that stopping smoking isn’t easy.

The key to success is being ready to make the change. If you are already experiencing an illness that smoking makes worse, this might be the right time.

Planning is key. Using the right products (it may be an e-cigarette or a combination of vaping and another nicotine replacement, such as a patch) and getting regular support makes all the difference.
