Quit Vaping

Vaping, the act of using electronic devices to vaporize nicotine or other chemicals, is often considered an alternative to traditional cigarettes. While vaping eliminates some dangers of tobacco, it’s not a risk-free solution. Vaping carries its own set of health risks and can lead to nicotine addiction and other health issues. Your goal should be complete cessation of nicotine use.

Quit Smoking

Vaping is the inhalation of nicotine or other chemicals using electronic devices.
E-cigarettes are not as harmless as traditional cigarettes. They can cause a variety of negative effects, such as an increased risk of lung diseases and addiction. Vaping can also be addictive and have an adverse impact on mental health.

Vaping is a popular alternative to smoking for many smokers who want to quit. It provides nicotine without the harmful effects that come with burning tobacco or secondhand smoke. It is true that vaping is safer than smoking but it should not be used as a way to quit.

It can be hard to quit smoking, but you can do it with the support and help of your family and friends. Making a plan is helpful, as are setting goals. It is also easier to stop smoking if you develop healthy habits. Instead of vaping to satisfy a craving, you can chew sugar-free gum, or lollipops, which will distract you from your urge. Exercise can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Nicotine can have a number of side effects including nausea and vomiting. Contact your doctor if you experience these side effects. Seek professional help if you’re experiencing extreme sadness or depression.

Talking to youth about vaping’s dangers is crucial, especially if the young person has already started using it. By educating them on the dangers, you can prevent them from using vaping or reduce their usage. Discussing the benefits of quitting smoking can be very rewarding to some.

Smoke from cigarettes is still harmful, even though it’s less harmful than tobacco smoke. This smoke can also cause high blood pressure, and heart disease. Carbon monoxide can build up in the lungs after smoking, reducing blood oxygen levels. This can cause serious illness, and even death.
The results of studies, such as those conducted by stop smoking services, randomised controlled trials and population surveys, show that vaping products containing nicotine are less harmful than cigarettes. Smokers should use nicotine-containing vaping products to quit smoking along with other methods approved by the FDA. E-cigarettes are not recommended for young people or non-smokers.
Ask your doctor, therapist, or school counsellor for free resources to help you quit smoking. These include apps and online programs. You should also inform your support group about your plans to quit smoking and let them know so that they can be supportive. You can also be reminded of your reasons for quitting and held accountable by them. Call the Quitline at 13 7848 to talk with a counsellor who can offer support and advice. Te Whatu Ora, a New Zealand-based service that offers telephone support to young people, is available.
