E-cigarettes and vaping is increasingly recognised as one of the best ways to help a smoker quit their tobacco smoking habit. In essence, the devices allow a person to receive a nicotine hit without getting any of the tar and other 4000 plus toxins associated with tobacco smoking.
The best way to start vaping and using e-cigs is to call in to a specialist supplier and get the facts, look at how the kits work and explore the abundance of e-cig liquids on offer.
Key to making the transition to e-cigs permanent is to start on the correct level of nicotine. There is no doubt that nicotine is addictive in its qualities and effects on the body, similar to those experienced when drinking caffeine. However, it is the least offensive chemical in a traditional cigarette. Smokers are not addicted to tobacco or tar – these are simply the vehicles by which nicotine is delivered to the system.
E-cigarettes are successful substitutes to tobacco cigarettes as they satisfy all the habitual elements associated with smoking. They relieve the nicotine craving, they allow you to have a device in your hands and you exhale a water vapour. The concept of exhaling a ‘smoke’ is missed when smokers give up with patches, gums or cold turkey. The vapour mimics the exhale of traditional smoke and convinces the brain the experience is very real.
Stick with it…
Many people adopting vaping as an alternative do take to it very easily, however some, especially previously heavy smokers, do find the concept takes some getting used to.
The best advice possible is to stick with it, don’t feel that having the odd cigarette whist attempting to start using e-cigarettes is reason to feel that they don’t work for you.

‘Smoking rates in England fall to lowest on record’ isn’t much of a headline in itself. Smoking rates have been in long-term decline for decades, so any given year is likely to have the fewest smokers on record.
What Deborah Arnott, of ASH, cannot quite bring herself to say is that it is the e-cigarette, not big government interference, that has been the game-changer. As Public Health England has acknowledged, e-cigarettes are the most popular stop-smoking aid.
