Switch to vaping

Vaping is a lot less harmful than smoking and a lot cheaper. Switching to vaping makes quitting easier and can still be social.

What is vaping?

Find a stop smoking service

Vaping refers to the use of an electronic device that heats a liquid turning it into an aerosol (vapour) which the user inhales.

How is vaping different than smoking?

Vaping heats a liquid, which gives you nicotine without the toxins that are made by burning tobacco.

Although vaping's much less harmful than smoking, it's not harmless. So you should plan to eventually quit vaping too, but only when you know you won't go back to smoking.

Getting the right device and nicotine levels

Finding your ideal setup might take a little time to work out so stick with it until you get it just right.

You can also get vaping advice from a Quit Coach at Quitline, your local stop smoking service or your local specialist vape shop.
