It’s a big question on the lips of many; how can I stop smoking? Change can be daunting, and you wouldn’t be the first to hit that roadblock and immediately turn tail. But the fact that you’re here, reading this, means you are already on the path to making a positive change that will certainly impact you for the better.

Why should I stop smoking?

You’ve probably heard this countless times, but smoking cigarettes is harmful, not just to you but others with second-hand smoke. Let’s not get started on the cost of smoking which easily racks up to an astonishing amount! On average in the UK, a smoker will spend £3723 on cigarettes – whereas vaping was found to only cost around £327 a year in the UK, with the possibility of it being even less!

According to NHS England and Cancer Research, between the production of tar, carbon monoxide and an array of harmful chemicals that are inhaled from the smoke, this alone is a good reason to quit the habit. Yorkshire Cancer Research show that 1 in 2 long-term smokers will die prematurely if they don’t quit. These figures can be scary, and rightly so, often smokers are aware of the risks but struggle to take the road to quitting smoking for a variety of reasons. Smoking habitually, the taste and experience around smoking, the pleasant effects of nicotine, all of which can impede on you quitting. This is where vaping and e-cigarettes come in.

Difference between Smoking and Vaping

There have been countless studies into the benefits of vaping against smoking. In the UK we are actively looking at ways to combatting smoking, and at Pod Salt our goal is to help as many smokers quit the habit as possible. E-cigarettes have been found to be a great replacement for smoking, due to the benefits of offering that much needed nicotine hit, without the hazardous smoke inhalation.

Large misconceptions have led to vaping getting a bad reputation, but much research to date has indicated vaping is much less harmful than smoking – although it is best to remember that there is still some harm in vaping E-Liquids, studies have shown that vaping can be 95% less harmful than smoking. For someone looking to quit smoking, minimising harm is a positive change. The argument for long-term effects of vaping always arises, but a recent landmark study on the long-term effects in the UK did find very favourable results in favour of e-cigarettes as a Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). One thing is certain though, the long-term effects of smoking are not to be taken lightly.

Smoking vs E-Cigarettes

Why choose to switch to vaping?

Like most of which we’ve mentioned above, many of the negative drawbacks of smoking are left behind with vaping.

E-cigarettes also offer a similar experience to traditional smoking to help combat those habitual tendencies such as holding a cigarette, the action of drawing on a cigarette and the feeling in your throat. You can even partake in a variety of pleasing flavours to suit your tastes and make the switch all that easier.

Nicotine and Nicotine Salts

Nicotine is the chemical in tobacco that makes it hard to quit. This addictive substance can be the defining factor that hinders you from quitting smoking. Vaping have been found to be a great Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT), as they provide the Nicotine hit smokers crave. Many E-Liquids include nicotine, which is highly regulated in the UK to ensure quality and safety, and Nicotine Salts take the delivery of nicotine to a new level. These naturally occurring salts from tobacco leaves offer a smoother, stronger hit of nicotine, perfect for helping you make the switch from cigarettes to vaping.
