Since the COVID pandemic hit Britain in March 2020, over a million people have stopped smoking, according to research by Action on Smoking and Health.
Electronic cigarettes are known to be one of the most effective stop smoking methods.
Many thousands of people in the UK have successfully quit with the help of an e-cigarette – research suggests this is because of the extensive range of strengths and flavours available.
There are so many options available, and you’re bound to feel spoilt for choice, but you can be sure that there’s an e-liquid out there with your name written all over it.
Here are some things to think about when finding it.
Choose a flavour you’re familiar with
Lots of first-time vapers will opt for a tobacco or menthol e-liquid as it’s what they’re familiar with. Although this might help them quit, it doesn’t necessarily mean it helps others in the same way – including you.
It’s best to do a little research first to see what flavours you can choose from. Additionally, it’s also important to explore the right option for you. Some individuals prefer a higher VG vape juice for a smoother inhale, while others opt for a balanced VG/PG ratio for a more pronounced throat hit.
Once you’ve done this, you’ll be able to compile a list of the flavours you want to try.
Have a look at all the flavours available
More and more first-timers have been reaching straight for fruity or dessert-like flavours instead of the traditional tobacco and menthol.
The key to using vapes to quit smoking is finding something you really like and prefer over the usual taste of cigarettes.
Some of the most popular flavours include:
Flavours like bubble-gum, cotton candy, and liquorice are all immensely popular candy-like flavours for lovers of all things sugary.
They’re guaranteed to give you that nostalgic feeling and bring back precious childhood memories.
From juicy apples and sour cherries to pineapples and blueberries, there’s several single fruit flavoured liquids available that work perfectly by themselves, or blended with other flavours to create your own unique liquid.
Dessert-like flavours go down a treat with new and long-time vapers.
From Cherry Bakewell to frosted lemon donuts and vanilla custard, there’s something for everyone and you’re bound to find something you love.
If you’re after something cool, fresh and slightly sweet then menthol flavours are right up your alley.
They’re an excellent choice for breaking down and softening other flavours, like citrus fruits for a pleasant icy blast.
Think about nicotine strengths
One of the biggest advantages of vaping is that you have complete control over your nicotine intake.
As a vaper, you’ll be able to replicate what your body was used to with cigarettes but in a much less harmful way.
It’s usually recommended for heavier smokers to start off with higher 18mg liquids and gradually reduce your intake as you gain better control of your cravings.
Find your ideal e-liquid flavour today
With all the options available, choosing your first e-liquids will seem overwhelming, but if you take these things (along with a few others) into consideration, you’ll be able to quickly narrow everything down and find one to fall in love with.
Your stop smoking journey doesn’t have to be miserable; an e-juice can make the journey an enjoyable one for sure.
