Vaping is different for everybody; some people have no issue with continuing vaping for the foreseeable future as they just enjoy it, plain and simple and see it as a reduced harm option for previous habits. For others, vaping is purely a tool to help them quit pre-existing habits and once they are successful they want to drop vaping too, and that’s just fine.
The majority of people that know anything about vaping will agree that quitting can be much easier than quitting smoking as there is not even close to the same amount of addictive substances in e-liquid as there is in other mediums.
How To Quit
Dropping Strength Over Time
One of the best parts of vaping is the amount of user control that it offers to vapers when vaping the mg strength that you vape at is completely up to yourself.
No matter what strength you started at, with vaping you can come down in as big or little increments of nicotine that you like because 99% of people in Australia mix their own nicotine into their juice offering full control. If you are buying “pre-mixed” juice from overseas, then you can use the usual increments offered by companies to come down as gradually or rapidly as you like.
Lowering you E-liquid Consumption Over Time
This may seem like an obvious one, but there are a few tips and tricks that you can use to help you monitor your e-liquid consumption on a daily basis and reduce it as you wish. This method will require a bit more will power than cutting down your strength as you will need to make conscious decisions about what you can and can’t do.
Many modern devices come equipped with a puff counter, these are an indispensable tool in keeping an eye on the amount of vaping you do in a day. You can set yourself goals of reducing your average daily puffs by say 20-50 every week.
Another way of achieving this is to only take a small bottle of juice with you for the day. Instead of taking a 30/60/120ml bottle with you, pick up a small 10ml bottle of juice. This will make you much more conscientious of how much juice you are using and help you cut it down.
Going Cold Turkey
Going cold turkey is known to be infamously hard, and for good reason! When it comes to most habits, going from one extreme to another is a difficult thing to do and we all know this.
With vaping, it can be much easier than you might expect. For most people that have used one of the methods above before going cold turkey, it can actually be quite easy. If you are only vaping a strength of nicotine less than 3mg or so, going completely without nicotine can be quite easy for a lot of people. The best part of vaping and cold turkey is that you can stage the quitting process at your own pace; you can first quit nicotine, and then when you feel ready you can go cold turkey on vaping completely.
When going cold turkey from vaping/nicotine you can still experience withdrawal symptoms they are much less severe than the same symptoms from smoking as you have been exposing your body to only one addictive substance instead of potentially hundreds. Symptoms can include but are not limited to:
- Increased hunger
Keep in mind, the lower the amount of nicotine you are running before going cold turkey, the less intense these symptoms may be.
The Short Story
Quitting vaping, or even just vaping, in general, seems to get tarred with the same brush as other addictions, but this just isn’t the case most of the time. The amount of control that a vaper has over what is going into their body and how much of it offers an unparalleled amount of freedom when it comes time to say enough is enough.
