If you haven’t already, allow yourself some time to think about what’s motivating you to quit. This is an important first step. Considering these reasons can increase your chance of success. You may want to write this down and revisit it in the coming days.
There’s no right or wrong reason for quitting. Motivators might include things like:
Why is now the right time for you to quit?
Are there particular times or situations when you vape most or more? It is good to have at think about what your triggers are before you start the quitting process. Triggers can be emotional, social or physical.
Some examples could be:
If you are not sure what your triggers are, you could keep a diary for a few days to see if you can spot any patterns.
Once you know what your triggers are you can then think about making a plan for when you are in those situations. It may mean making some small changes to your daily routines or trying something out for some stuff.
When you feel stressed how else might you manage that feeling? Can you think of other things you can do when you hit a trigger?
For some people, quitting cold turkey is the most effective option. But for others, the best way to stop vaping is by weaning off of nicotine first.
Vaping is partly habitual – the act of holding something in the hand and putting it in the mouth. Vapes can also contain nicotine and it is one of the most addictive substances available.
Vape juice comes in varying nicotine strengths, and by gradually reducing the amount of nicotine intake, it’s possible to wean off the addiction to it.
You may need to try different options to find the best solution for you.
Why not set a quit date and plan to be vape free on that day. Have final vape the day before, the ditch all your kit.
Remember to celebrate your success, each day without a vape is a good day.
If things don’t go to plan, start again tomorrow. Quitting a super tough so don’t beat yourself it things go wrong. Keep trying and you’ll get there.
