How to Quit Smoking for Good: 5 Top Tips to Stay Smoke-Free
Quitting smoking is one of the best things you can do to improve your health. Whilst it’s better to quit completely, research suggests that vaping gives smokers a 60% better chance of kicking the habit than going cold turkey. If you’ve struggled to stop smoking before, then vaping might be the ideal choice for you. Here’s 5 top tips to help you quit and stay smoke-free for good.
1. Use the right nicotine strength
When switching to vaping, it’s important to choose an e-liquid with the best nicotine strength to suit your needs. This will depend on how many cigarettes you usually smoke per day.
If you’re a social smoker or just have a few each day, we recommend using 3mg or 6mg strength e-liquids. If you smoke up to 1 pack of cigarettes per day, start with 6mg or 12mg. Heavier smokers who get through more than 20 a day should try e-liquids between 12mg and 20mg. Remember, you can always adjust your nicotine strength if it’s too much for you or if you find the lower strengths aren’t curbing your cravings.
2. Pick flavours you love
Aside from nicotine strength, finding a flavour you like is one of the most important elements of vaping. Many ex-smokers like to start with tobacco blends as they closely mimic the taste and sensation of smoking cigarettes.
If you used to smoke menthol cigarettes, our mint and menthol range is the perfect choice! There's a range of flavours to choose from, including spearmint, cool mint and strawberry menthol if you’d like something a little sweeter.
We offer a wide range of flavours including fruit, dessert, drink, sweets and more, making One Eliquids your one stop shop for everything you need to start vaping.
3. Find the best vape kit for you
There’s lots of different vape devices out there to choose from, and it can be a little overwhelming if you're trying vaping for the first time. We recommend starting with a good quality, beginner friendly starter kit.
To enjoy a cigarette-like experience, look out for something lightweight that offers mouth-to-lung vaping. This means that you inhale the same way you would when smoking, as the vapour moves into your mouth first before you breathe it into your lungs.
The biggest benefit to starter kits is that you can choose from a huge selection of e-liquid flavours and strengths, giving you more flexibility to create your perfect vape.
Alternatively, we also sell a wide range of disposable vapes, which offer auto-draw inhalation with no fiddly buttons to press or settings to change. Bear in mind though that disposables only offer very high 20mg nicotine strength, so you might find them too strong if you’re usually a social smoker.
4. Recognise your smoking triggers
Are there certain times or activities that increase your cravings for cigarettes? If there are, then recognising them is important if you want to kick the habit for good. A lot of people enjoy a cigarette socially, especially when alcohol is involved, as well as after a big meal or a stressful day at work.
Make sure you keep your vape to hand in such situations, and don’t feel pressured when you’re around people who smoke. One of the best things about vaping is that you can still pop out to get some air and socialise without lighting up a cigarette.
5. Stay stocked up on vape supplies
The first thing you’ll be tempted to do if you run out of e-liquid or coils is buy a pack of cigarettes. It’s important to make sure you have a reliable supply of all your favourite flavours and accessories to prevent it.
One Eliquids offers a subscription service which you can opt into when adding products to your basket to help make sure you never run low on e-liquid, coils or replacement pods. The best part? You’ll get a 5% discount on every recurring order!
We also offer free next day delivery on all orders over £15 and you can get 20 10ml bottles for £18 ‑ that’s just 90p each! Head over to our extensive e-liquid collection to stock up and quit smoking for good!
