It’s a new year, which means that everywhere you turn, people will be making lifestyle changes to try and become a better version of themselves. It’s the perfect time to try and finally kick the habit of smoking, with motivation all around and Nicotine replacement products being advertised heavily.
But one of the main sticking points for most people looking to quit smoking is that although they know that they should, they simply don’t want to. Despite the health implications, many smokers revert back to cigarettes not necessarily due to addiction but simply because they enjoy the experience.
Vaping is a great way to stop smoking for the long term, as the hand-to-mouth experience is still there, along with the sensation of inhaling and exhaling ‘smoke’ or in this instance, vapour. Using an e-cigarette helps to manage nicotine cravings and with a range of different strengths available to try, it’s one of the most effective methods available for long term cessation. You can gradually reduce the amount of nicotine in your e-cigarette until you feel you are ready to quit altogether.
If you’re struggling to stay smoke-free this January, why not pop in to see us and have a chat about how vaping could be the approach for you. We have a range of e-liquids for you to try, including tobacco flavours if you’re looking to recreate the experience of smoking, or sweet and fruity flavours if you’re keen to try something new. We also have a range of vaping starter kits available, ideal if you're looking to use vaping to quit smoking.
And because there are just so many models to choose from, here are our top picks for starter vaping kits:
This has been our most popular kit for well over a year. We use them ourselves and think they are the closest thing to replicating a cigarette that we have.
The three key things that cigarette smokers need when switching to vaping are throat hit, vapour and of course, the right strength of nicotine. The Basic gives such good throat hit, to the point that most smokers can come in at a lower level of nicotine when starting. I always vaped at 18mg but use 12mg now, simply because of the kit. The Basic delivers about the same amount of vapour as cigarette smoke. It is a nice size mod that fits well in the hand and has a battery 2300mAh to last heavy smokers/vapers all day long
2. Aspire Pockex
The Pockex is a tube shaped mod with an easy top fill system. It gives good throat hit, nice amount of vapour and is becoming a very popular choice. The battery is 1500mAh and ideal for the 20 a day or under smoker.
3. Aspire Breeze
Small, discreet ‘pod-mods’ are becoming very popular for light vapers or ‘social smokers’. The Aspire Breeze is the perfect compromise between physical size (18mm x 33mm x 93mm) and battery life
(650mAh). Just inhale and the vapour draws in automatically or press the button for an extra kick.
