The difference between deciding to quit smoking and making the switch to vaping is that you don’t need to make a decision: the finality that smokers usually feel is avoided; there doesn’t need to be the final cigarette; there doesn’t have to be the ceremonial cigarette packet stomping; there is absolutely no pressure, and more than that, no fear.
All recent studies point to the fact that vaping is better than smoking.
With Public Health England stating that electronic cigarettes are 95% safer than smoking and Cancer Research UK supporting vaping in the fight against smoking relating diseases.
Every day, people are successfully making the switch from smoking to vaping. We asked our customers about their vaping journeys and the results are striking. Below we run through our vaping statistics and tell you about the impact that Totally Wicked has had on its customers over the last 10 years, a trend that we intend to continue.
An e-cig is a hand-held electronic device that people use to vape.
It uses several components to vapourise e-liquid into an inhalable form. It is an alternative way to obtain the nicotine your body is craving from smoking cigarettes.
There is evidence to suggest that vaping is far less addictive than smoking. A study  by Jean Francois Etter in 2015 showed e-cigarettes to be similarly or less addictive than nicotine gum, both being far less addictive than traditional cigarettes.
The number of cigarettes you smoke can be used as a guide when choosing the nicotine strength of your e-liquid. Read on to find an extremely simplified explanation of choosing your nicotine strength. Ultimately you need to choose a nicotine strength that allows you to vape instead of smoke.
The question of vaping and its potential risks is one that some people ask before embarking on their vaping journey. Some smokers who are looking to make the switch to e-cigs are bombarded with false information and stories spun in an anti-vaping way.
Quitting smoking is one of the hardest habits to break. You are dealing with nicotine addiction, a physical habit and euphoric recall. It may take several tries before you kick the habit for good.
Smoking causes heart disease, stroke, cancer and lung diseases. We all know the health implications when we are smoking. That doesn’t mean that quitting smoking is easy. In fact, it is extremely difficult to just stop smoking.
Even if you have decided to quit smoking, there may still be a battle ahead. Cravings for a cigarette can happen at any time and some ex-smokers have described cravings as intolerable. Learn how to cope with cravings.
Yes, vaping is cheaper than smoking. The average 20 a day smoker will spend up to £10.60 a day! That means each year they are forking out around £3,869. When you make the switch to vaping the average annual cost (based on higher strength e-liquid, starter kits, 10 bottles of e-liquid per month, plus accessories) is just £633.60.
The health risks of smoking are widely known. The benefits of quitting smoking are massive. Your health improves, the risk of heart attacks and death from lung cancer are halved. You won’t smell like an ashtray and you will save a huge amount of money.
