When I first saw people using e-cigarettes I was confused. They looked odd, and they sounded like watered down versions of what I knew and craved. But the more I got to hear about them, the more curious I became, because e-cigarettes can give you not just the nicotine you crave, but also fill up those little moments that would otherwise seem empty with something new, satisfying and pleasurable. It might sound like replacing one habit with another, but when one habit is clearly bad for you, and the other provides a good, clean, satisfying draw, it’s a no brainer.
I found that you can choose different levels of nicotine in the e-liquids that go into your vaping device, so that means even if you’re a habitual smoker with a high daily nicotine dependence, you can find something to suit your needs. If you gradually lower the amount of nicotine, you can wean yourself off completely, while still enjoying what to all intents and purposes feels like a smoke. You can find premium brands of e-liquid that use raw tobacco extraction for their nicotine, and a range of flavours that include brands of tobacco, as well as some genuinely refreshing fruit, menthol, and mint options. Ultimately, it means you don’t end up feeling like you’ve sacrificed your pleasure, simply made it healthier.
My method might not be for everyone, but after converting to vaping I can say that I’ve never gone back to smoking. After a few months of reducing my nicotine intake, I’m no longer dependant on that either. But that doesn’t mean I’ve given up vaping – on the contrary, I enjoy nicotine free flavours for the simple pleasure of the experience. So if you’re thinking of quitting smoking, why not try my novel approach, and see how it works for you.
