Vaping to Quit Smoking – What You Need to Know
Why Vaping Works Better than Other Quitting Methods
Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) has long been used to help people quit smoking. NRT products replace some of the nicotine you would otherwise get from smoking, making quitting easier. Nicotine gum, patches, or lozenges have helped many people quit smoking, but in recent years, vaping has proven more effective. The difference between vaping and other nicotine delivery methods is that vaping mimics smoking behaviours. Vaping can replace some behavioural and social aspects of smoking that ex-smokers miss when they stop smoking, such as holding a cigarette in their hands, taking a puff, and feeling part of a group.
Choosing the Right Vape to Quit Smoking
When it comes to quitting smoking, not all vapes in NZ are created equal. The best options have a similar draw to a cigarette. Pod or pen devices are a good choice, as they offer a similar size and feel to a cigarette and provide high levels of nicotine without producing huge clouds. They are convenient, discreet, and easy to use. Everyone’s personal preferences are different, so if you are looking for the perfect vape for your needs, visit Urban Vape. Our experts will be able to help you find what you need.
Why Make the Switch?
While vaping can pose some problems, it is healthier than traditional cigarettes. Public Health England (PHE) estimates that e-cigarette use is around 95% less harmful than smoking combustible tobacco. Vaping delivers nicotine to users similarly to cigarettes but with fewer toxins. The chemicals in cigarette smoke that harm health, including carcinogens, are either absent in e-cigarette vapour or, if present, are primarily at levels much below 5% of smoking doses (mostly below 1% and far below safety limits for occupational exposure). As well as the health benefits of switching to vaping, you will save yourself a lot of money. For most people, vaping costs about 10% of the cost of smoking. If you use a 12mg nicotine e-juice and vape the equivalent amount as a pack-a-day smoker, it will cost you $15 a week, $65 a month, and only $788 over one year. If you are buying the equivalent amount of cigarettes, it is likely to cost you over $10,000 a year!
