It’s easy to quit vaping on your own – you just need to know how. Time has proven that nicotine patches, gum, and e-cigarettes just prolong the addiction and don’t tackle the important psychological aspects of smoking. Most vapers don’t realise that the problem with nicotine addiction is 1% physical and 99% mental.

Here’s how to quit vaping naturally

  1. Nicotine addiction is actually weak;  

    it’s an extremely mild, slightly insecure feeling.

  2. The unpleasant symptoms people describe as “nicotine withdrawal” are nothing of the sort;  

    the empty insecure feeling of nicotine withdrawal triggers a thought process. It’s the result of that thought process which leads to the unpleasant physical feelings

  3. It’s like a tantrum;  

    The discomfort a vaper feels when they attempt to quit using willpower is similar to that displayed by a child when their favourite toy is taken from them. They are powerful physical feelings – but they have no physical cause

  4. To ensure success focus on the 99% mental aspects of addiction;  

    Understanding why you vape is essential. Most vapers mistakenly believe that they do it because they enjoy it or because it gives them some kind of benefit or support. It’s the addiction that convinces them of this.

  5. The next vape is the continuation of a problem not the solution;  

    Understand an e-cigarette simply momentarily relieves the discomfort caused by the previous one. That’s how addiction works. The more you experience the effect the more convinced you believe the e-cigarette is solving the problem rather than causing it.

  6. Realise that there’s nothing to give up;  

    Understanding that there are no benefits or advantages to vaping is key. Understand that and your inclination to vape will disappear. Allen Carr’s Easyway method is the most effective way of quitting vaping naturally without the hindrance of nicotine products.

  7. It’s great to have support;  

    You don’t have to quit vaping on your own – there is lots of help. Choosing a method that understands the psychology of addiction is key to success.

  8. Reach out for help;  

    You can always find out different ways to stopping smoking using Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking method

Allen Carr’s Easyway  doesn’t focus on the downsides of vaping – vapers know all about those already. Instead the method answers the question ‘What’s so great about being a vaper?’ Understanding that is the key to being set free.
