Is vaping harder to quit than smoking cigarettes?

is vaping harder to quit than smoking cigarettes

Nicotine addiction is 1% physical and 99% mental

People who try to quit vaping find it as hard as they did when they tried to quit smoking. The reason is nicotine addiction. It is only those who attempt to quit nicotine using the wrong kinds of methods who find it hard. Most smokers don’t realise that the problem with nicotine addiction is 1% physical and 99% mental.

How can you prove that nicotine addiction is 1% physical and 99% psychological? Consider a heavy smoker on a long-haul flight who cannot smoke.

He resigns himself to this fact. Most smokers – even the heaviest – in these circumstances – don’t even bother using nicotine patches or gum. For most of the flight they feel calm. Yet, 10 hours into an 11-hour flight, something begins to happen.

The flight is coming to an end and the smoker begins to anticipate getting off the plane and being able to light a cigarette. As the smoker checks his watch and notes there is now only a matter of 20 minutes until the end of the flight – he smiles. Soon he will have a cigarette.

Now imagine that smoker when the flight’s captain announces that he is very sorry – but due to severe weather conditions at their destination – the flight has been diverted to a different airport and the flight will now continue for a further 60 minutes. All of a sudden, the calm smile disappears. The relaxed, expectant smoker, suddenly lurches into a condition that he would immediately describe as nicotine withdrawal; anger, tension, anxiety, upset, and stress.

The physical withdrawal from nicotine didn’t appear in the 6 seconds that it took the pilot to announce the delayed landing. It has been occurring continuously since the smoker stubbed out his cigarette before he boarded the flight more than 10 hours and 40 minutes ago.

Nicotine withdrawal did not cause the sudden onset of the unpleasant symptoms. Something in the smoker’s head, changed as a result of the pilot’s announcement. It is important to use a method such as Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking or Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Vaping to avoid the psychological problems of quitting – that way the physical addiction is easy to break.

Top 10 Tips on How to Stop Vaping Completely – Allen Carr’s Easyway

Many people think Allen Carr’s Easyway is simply a series of tips on how to quit vaping to help vapers quit. It isn’t. It’s as if vapers are lost in a maze. They want to escape vaping and smoking completely but they don’t know the correct directions.

Allen Carr’s Easyway method provides a map of the maze and simple instructions to help any vaper get free. However, if you try to follow the instructions without first understanding the map, or you fail to follow all the instructions, you may never find the exit.

Once you’ve got it clearly into your mind that there are no advantages to vaping just benefits to quitting vaping, then the instructions below will help you get free but if you are serious about stopping, we strongly recommend you attend your nearest Allen Carr center or watch an online video program wherever you like, whenever you like.

1. Set your date and time to stop; you’re going to quit vaping naturally so carry on vaping as usual until then

Set your date and time to quit and carry on vaping as usual right up to that time – don’t try to reduce the number of vapes you have beforehand, that just makes e-cigarettes seem more precious rather than less so.

2. Look forward

Remember – you’re not quitting anything because e-cigarettes do absolutely nothing for you at all. They provide you with no genuine pleasure or crutch, they simply keep you addicted – a slave to nicotine. Get it clearly into your mind: you are losing nothing and you are making marvellous positive gains not only in health, energy and money but also in confidence, self-respect, freedom and, most important of all, in the length and quality of your future life. You’re going to enjoy being a non-vaper right from the moment you finish your last e-cigarette.

Nicotine addiction is actually weak; it’s an extremely mild, slightly insecure feeling.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

3. Have a final e-cigarette; you’re going to quit vaping easily so make a solemn vow

Actually, there’s nothing to quit – you’re getting rid of something. Have your final e-cigarette and make a solemn vow that regardless of what highs or lows may befall you in future, you will never vape or take nicotine in any form again. This is one of the most important decisions you will ever make because the length and quality of your future life critically depend on it. What’s more, you know it’s the correct decision even as you make it. Having made what you know to be the correct decision never even begin to question or to doubt that decision.

4. Be cool about withdrawal; the physical withdrawal is very slight and passes quickly

Your body will continue to withdraw from nicotine for a few days but that doesn’t mean you have to be miserable or crave e-cigarettes. The physical withdrawal is very slight – there is no pain – and it passes quickly. What’s more, it’s what vapers and smokers suffer all their smoking lives. Non-vapers do not suffer it. You are a non-vaper and so you’ll soon be free of it forever.

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

If you associate vaping with a coffee, tea, drink or break, have your coffee, tea, drink or break and at that moment, instead of thinking: “I can’t vape now”, simply think: “Isn’t it great: I can enjoy this moment without having to choke myself to death”.

5. Socialise as normal; you won’t be craving vaping or cigarettes so there’s no need to avoid smokers

Do not try to avoid vaping and smoking situations or opt out of life. Go out and enjoy social occasions right from the start and do not envy vapers, pity them. Realise that they will be envying you because every single one of them will be wishing they could be like you: free from the whole nightmare. No vaper wants to see their children start vaping which means they wish they hadn’t started themselves. Remember it’s not you who are being deprived but those poor vapers. They’re being deprived of their health, energy, money, peace of mind, confidence, courage, self-respect and freedom. If you’re offered an e-cigarette, just say: “No thanks – I don’t vape”, rather than start a long conversation about how long it has been since you stopped.

6. Think about it; don’t try to “not to think” about vaping – it doesn’t work

Don’t try to “not to think about” vaping – it doesn’t work. If I say: “Don’t think about a brick wall, what are you thinking about? Just make sure that whenever you are thinking about it, you’re not thinking: “I want an ecigarette but I can’t have one” but instead: “Isn’t is marvellous: I don’t need to vape anymore and I don’t want to vape anymore. Yippee, I’m a non-vaper!” Then you can think about it all you like and you’ll still be happy.

7. There’s no such thing as “just one” e-cig after you quit vaping

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.

Never be fooled into thinking you can have the odd vape just to be sociable or just to get over a difficult moment. If you do, you’ll find yourself back in the trap in no time at all. Never think in terms of one vape, always think of the whole filthy lifetime’s chain. Remember: there is no such thing as just one vape.

8. Avoid Substitutes; patches, gums and nasal sprays just keep the addiction alive

Do not use any substitutes. They all make it more difficult to quit because they perpetuate the illusion that you’re making a sacrifice. Substitutes that contain nicotine or so-called Nicotine Replacement Therapy; patches, gums, nasal sprays and inhalators – are particularly unhelpful as they simply keep the addiction to nicotine alive. It’s like advising a heroin addict who’s smoking the drug off foil, to start injecting it instead.

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.

9. Ditch your ecigarettes; you are already a non-vaper the moment you have your final vape

Do not keep e-cigarettes on you or anywhere else in case of an emergency. If you do, it means you’re doubting your decision. Non-vapers do not need e-cigarettes. You are already a non-vaper the moment you have your final vape. In fact one of the many joys of being free is not having to worry about having e-cigarettes, of ending that slavery.

10. Enjoy your freedom; live a vape-free life and be on your guard not to fall back into the trap

Life will soon go back to normal as a non-vaper but be on your guard not to fall back into the trap. If your brain ever starts playing tricks on you by thinking “Just one vape”, remember there is no such thing, so the question you need to ask yourself is not: “Shall I vape now” but “Do I want to become a vaper again, all day, every day sticking those things into my mouth, never being allowed to stop?” The answer “No”. Why not? “Because I didn’t like being a vaper – that’s why I decided to become a non-vaper”. That way those moments can become pleasurable as you congratulate yourself that you’re free and that way you can enjoy remaining a non-vaper for the rest of your life.

Is vaping safer than smoking and is it harmful or bad for you?

It is likely that vaping is safer than smoking but it is definitely harmful to you and definitely bad for you. Some people have compared vaping instead of smoking as being like falling from the 10th floor of a building rather than the 20th floor. There is integrity to this comparison although it’s not a simple consideration.

  1. Vaping/e-cigarettes do not contain many of the poisons and toxins that cigarettes do;

    yet it is far from harmless. There is very little long term evidence into the harm that vaping causes and by the time it is available do you want to have been vaping for 10 years? It’s unlikely to be great news and the advice you will receive will be to quit. Why not just quit nicotine now?

  2. Big Pharma and Big Tobacco win when you vape rather than simply quit smoking;

    the tobacco industry and the pharmaceutical industry make a lot of money from nicotine addicts. By vaping you are making sure that you keep giving your money to them rather than spend it on yourself or your family.

  3. The Government win when you vape instead of quitting smoking;

    the government make lots of money from smoking and they will be delighted when you decide to vape rather than just quit nicotine. It’s not just the tobacco industry and pharmaceutical industry that relies on addicts to give them money without question.

  4. The ingredients of e-cigarettes and vape juice are often unknown;

    e-cigarettes and the liquid that vapers use is often purchased from small retailers who are unregulated and uncontrolled. You have no idea where their ingredients came from, how much nicotine is contained in them or how much of the other chemicals and toxins are contained in them.

  5. Being addicted to something is harmful;

    you are controlled by a drug and forced to spend your money on it instead of spending it on yourself or your family. You don’t want to keep yourself poor by giving your money to the e-cigarette companies and the government.

  6. Vaping may be less harmful than smoking;

    but it’s not necessary to do either. It is much healthier and much easier to simply quit smoking and quit vaping. Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking is a method that helps with both issues.

  7. You wouldn’t want your child to vape;

    no-one likes the idea of their children being addicted to things. Watching them do something that is damaging their health and depriving them of their money is extremely upsetting for a parent.

  8. Rather than vape in an attempt to quit smoking – just quit smoking;

    it is easy to quit smoking when you know how. You need to find a way that ensures that you don’t feel deprived, that way you’re not tempted to smoke or to use substitutes. Allen Carr’s Easyway to Stop Smoking & Vaping helps in this way.

Allen Carr’s Easyway has been described as ‘a real smoker’s way to quit’. You carry on smoking until you’re ready to stub out your final cigarette. Easyway doesn’t focus on the downsides of smoking – smokers know all about those already. Instead the method answers the question ‘What’s so great about being a smoker?’ Understanding that is the key to being set free.
