When someone says that they are trying to quit smoking, the truth is that they could have been trying for days, weeks, months or even years without achieving any measurable success. They may have even become so frustrated that their attempts to quit have been unsuccessful that they have given up on the dream of someday being a non-smoker. It follows, then, that smokers are well aware of the fact that quitting smoking is far easier said than done, which is why they may be eager to learn of quitting methods that actually work. Following are some of the options they have available to them:
⦁ Quitting cold turkey. This is when the individual simply stops smoking, without an outside support, aids, medicine or therapy. This may be one of the most common ways that many individuals try to quit smoking.
⦁ Behavioral therapy. This is when the individual works with a counselor in order to try and figure out what triggers their desire to smoke, and how they can prevent, cope with or overcome these triggers without giving into cravings.
⦁ Medication. There are some prescription medications that have been developed for the purposes of helping to reduce nicotine cravings and withdrawal symptoms. However, it is important to recognize that these prescription medications are themselves drug substances that can come with undesirable and sometimes even dangerous side effects.
⦁ Nicotine replacement. For many smokers who are unable to simply quit cold turkey, it is the addictive nicotine chemical in cigarettes that they are craving most. Nicotine replacement, which can include using nicotine gum, patches, inhalers, sprays, lozenges or indeed even the e-juices used for vaping, works by providing the individual with nicotine and is often considered one of the most effective and successful ways to quit smoking.
Vaping is currently one of the most popular solutions for nicotine replacement, as it allows the smoker to transition from smoking to a healthier option that yet provides them with the same nicotine and hand-to-mouth sensation they have grown used to. A smoker may find that they have a better chance of quitting if they switch to vaping, and then perhaps taper down their nicotine levels slowly over a period of time. That said, they may find that they still miss the taste of their favorite cigarettes, and will be able to enjoy the transition more if they can find a comparable flavor in a high-quality e-juice liquid.
Finding the Best E-Juice Liquid
One of the many benefits of vaping over tobacco smoking is the wealth of e-juice flavors that are available, but it can take time to build up one’s taste for new flavors if they have become accustomed to “old” flavors. Where an individual is switching from traditional tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes, it is always a good idea to find the e-cigarette and e-juice liquid that will most closely approximate what they had with traditional cigarettes.
Following are a couple of the best e-juice flavors for smokers:
⦁ Tobacco. Many smokers enjoy the traditional, rich, full-bodied flavor provided by most cigarettes. Tobacco-flavored e-juices recreate this flavor, and can, therefore, satisfy a smoker’s desire. Trubacco is Vape Organics’ answer–a natural e-juice made from plant-based extracts and carrying the natural, rich flavor of tobacco with a touch of sweetness, available here at Real Organic Vapors.
⦁ Menthol. Some smokers enjoy the cooling sensation provided by menthol cigarettes, which can be successfully recreated in menthol-flavored e-juices. Real Organic Vapors also sells Vape Organics’ Menthol+Ice, an all-natural e-juice providing vapers with a full-bodied, refreshing menthol flavor and a smooth, icy exhale.
Transitioning from traditional tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes can take some time and patience, but can be made easier if the individual feels that the experience is closely matched. Once they have successfully and fully quit smoking and has settled into vaping, the individual can begin to explore the many e-juices for vaping that are available to them, and perhaps find a whole new list of favorites if they so choose.
