How do I start vaping and quit smoking?


If you’ve found your way here, there’s a strong possibility that you’re planning to quit smoking, start vaping, and save some serious cash. We realise that this won’t apply to everyone, but we’ll come back to that crowd in a moment.

The big question: where do I start? Well, that’s the question we’re hoping to help answer on this page! We’ve listed the benefits of swapping your cigarettes for an e-cig, and even included some links to supporting articles and research to back this up. How nice of us 🙂

So, people who aren’t currently smokers: we said we’d come back to you, and here we are. On occasion, we do hear of non-smokers who are considering taking up vaping. If that is you, while we don’t wish to encroach on your right to make your own decisions, we would strongly encourage you to research the benefits of avoiding smoking and vaping altogether before you start.

Anyway, let’s get learning: click on one of these or scroll down !

Why swap your cigarettes for an e-cig?

There are tonnes of great reasons to switch from cigarettes to an e-cig. Here’s just a few of them to give you some food for thought!

  • Lower health risk

    The most up-to-date scientific research strongly suggests that vaping is much, much safer for you than smoking. See the articles below for some expert opinions.

  • Aesthetics

    No matter what your taste, you can always find an e-cig that suits your style. From subtle vape pens, to Optimus Prime-looking bad boys, the options are endless.

  • Convenience

    Smokers are now much more restricted as to where they are allowed to smoke. Vaping, while disallowed in some venues, is still permitted in many indoor establishments.

  • Flavour range

    These days you can pretty much get e-liquid in any flavour you want! We stock a huge range of flavours including desserts, fruit, tobacco, menthol, beverages and so on. Have a look!

  • No more ashtray smell

    One of the worst things about smoking cigarettes is the lingering “ashtray” smell. You don’t get any of that with e-cigs. The smell is generally gone within minutes, and is seen by many as quite pleasant anyway!

  • No tooth staining

    Cigarette smoke stains your teeth over time, resulting in a yellow/brown and (let’s face it) highly unappealing appearance! The vapour from e-cigs does not stain your teeth at all.

  • Social acceptance

    Vaping is generally seen as more socially acceptable than smoking. You’ll likely see a great reduction in the level of “tutting” going on around you!

  • Save cash

    Oh yes. Who doesn’t want to save some money? You almost certainly will when you switch to vaping! Cigarettes are considerable more expensive nowadays, and you could find yourself saving hundreds per year.

Don't trust us, trust the experts

You may well have some concerns about the safety of e-cigarettes, lord knows there have been a lot of contradicting articles flying about the internet recently. We’ve gathered a selection of articles that discuss the potential benefits of e-cigarettes as a replacement for smoking, which we hope you will find helpful

If you don’t feel like reading today (lazy!), here’s a summary of what you can expect to find in the articles:

It is known that avoiding using cigarettes or e-cigarettes is the best thing you can do for your health. Current research strongly suggests that completely replacing cigarette use with e-cigarette use is significantly more beneficial for your health, but e-cigarette use does come with health risks.
