Studies have revealed that vaping is easily one of the best ways to kick the smoking habit. In fact, 40.8% of smokers who had used vaping to quit had completely eliminated tobacco from their lives after one year. This is immensely successful when compared to traditional methods such as nicotine patches, gum and going cold turkey which resulted in only 5% of quitters remaining smoke-free twelve months after. This stat prompts the question: is the money quitters are spending on such products really worth it?
Experts deem that it all boils down to psychology. Vaping allows ex-smokers to keep enjoying some of the behavioural nuances of smoking, without all the bad stuff. For example, many smokers may have long-established routines that can be a struggle to break. They might enjoy a cigarette after a long workday and will miss this when it’s gone. With vaping, it’s possible to maintain these elements thereby reducing the chances that you’ll break.
We have produced a new infographic, “The Psychology of Vaping & Why it Succeeds,” which examines why and how vapes provide a great alternative to smoking. It first looks at the psychology of nicotine withdrawal and explores the science behind quitting smoking. It then moves onto the success rates of traditional means versus vapes as a quitting method. Finally, it breaks down some of the reasons why vaping is such a great way to quit smoking.
If you’ve tried other methods to quit; it may be worth your time researching vapes and figuring out if they can be of some use to you. Read our infographic below for more information.

Oxford Academic - a renowned scholastic journal will no longer allow authors to call vaping devices tobacco products. In an editorial entitled “Are e-cigarettes tobacco products?”, editor-in-chief Marcus Munafò explains that the journal will only use the term “tobacco products” to describe items that contain actual leaf tobacco.
