Stoptober 2022: Can Vapes Help You Quit Smoking?

by Gary Clark 21 Sep 2022

The annual Stoptober campaign is just around the corner, and if you’re planning on ditching the cigarettes, there’s no better time to try! Stoptober is a government-backed campaign based on research that if a smoker can make it to 28 days smoke-free, they are 5-times more likely to quit for good. Over the last few years, e-cigarettes have become one of the most popular smoking cessation tools, helping smokers make the transition from traditional cigarettes. Whether you’re new to UK Vape Supply, or you’re looking for a quick refresh on why vaping is a great way to ‘stop the cigs’, we’re here to help you kick the habit. 

What is an e-cigarette?

In simple terms, an e-cigarette or vape is a device that allows you to inhale nicotine vapour, instead of smoke. As they do not burn tobacco or produce harmful tar or carbon monoxide, they’re considered a lot safer than normal cigarettes. A vape works by heating up e-liquid to create this vapour, with a wide range of flavours and strengths to choose from to suit your smoking habits. 

Are there different types of e-cigarettes?

There are many different types of vapes, designed to suit a variety of different needs. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular designs. 

  • ‘Cigalikes’ - these models are designed to look like regular cigarettes and are available in both disposable and rechargeable versions. 
  • Vape Pens - shaped like a pen or a long cylinder with a tank to store your chosen e-liquid and a rechargeable battery. 
  • Vape Pods - compact vape designs that contain e-liquid capsules. These are often shaped liked a small USB. 
  • Mods - the largest of the e-cigarette designs. Mods are available in a variety of shapes and sizes, with longer-lasting batteries and variable power. 

Which vape is right for me?

Different devices can offer different experiences for smokers, which is why it's important to choose the right one for your needs. 

  • Light Smokers: Try a cigalike, pod or vape pen. 
  • Medium Smokers: Vape pen or pod system.
  • Heavy Smokers: Mod system or vape pen.

Will an e-cigarette help me succeed this Stoptober?

E-cigarettes have already helped thousands of people quit smoking and are recommended by the NHS as an effective cessation tool. Vaping can help you manage nicotine cravings, however, it is important that you choose a liquid with the right strength to match your cravings.

A 2019 clinical trial found that, when combined with face-to-face support, those using e-cigarettes are twice as likely to quit smoking as people using alternative nicotine replacement products. 

Cutting out smoking completely is the only way to get the full benefit from vaping, so if you’re struggling to quit, we advise contacting your local stop-smoking service for more support.
