Stop smoking

Need to quit, need vaping advice?

Hi, me and DH are both smokers, 10-15 a day but DH has recently had a health scare due to ongoing conditions and I think we now are ready to quit. The habit of going outside and having 5 minutes away from the kids is probably my biggest enjoyment out of smoking, it’s what I’m doing currently! The consultant was very positive about vaping instead of smoking as being a step in the right direction but we have no idea what we are doing. The vape shop in town is open Monday and we will be heading down there but I would like to have some information from people with the experience if anyone could help?

As long as it’s a decent shop they should be able to offer you lots of advice and test a few flavours to find one you like. Make sure you go for a nice simple kit to start with, I have an Aspire Zelos which I would recommend.
I gave up last year by vaping and was much easier than going cold turkey

Have nothing to do with "sub tanks" or cloud chasing gear. Specify MTL "mouth to lung" setups, high nicotine liquid, no lower than 12mg/ml (1.2%). Ignore "nic salts" hype.
Ask about battery life, does it last all day or will you need a spare if you can't charge it and are out and about.

If you cannot quit smoking and cannot choose a vape product for yourself, then I recommend you go to Here you will find smoking cessation guidelines, as well as vape reviews and practical tips.

I like the flavor of vape

Thank you all for your advice, it’s been 2 weeks with my vape pen and I haven’t smoked since I walked in the shop to buy it. I’m actually amazed at how easy it has been, my OH is doing it with me too. I have a Smok Nord AIO 19, it’s great but I’m already looking at different ones with bigger batteries Blush
