How do I quit vaping?

Man smoking an e-cigarette at the beachVaping was once seen as a stepping stone to quitting. Instead, for many, it has become a replacement. While we still collect information on the safety of vaping vs smoking cigarettes, it is clear that vaping is still an unhealthy alternative.  Is it time to quit vaping?   

The good news is that the process to quit vaping is the same as it is for quitting smoking. The reason you vape e-cigarettes is the same reason you smoke. We tackle this with our hypnotherapy program. 

Vaping E-cigarettes is Trendy

E-cigarette use is also particularly prevalent among young people. Even people who would have normally never smoked cigarettes are taking up e-cigarettes. It is often touted as a healthier option and is marketed to youth with fun flavours. Increasing stressors during the covid 19 pandemic have also led teenagers to choose unhealthy coping options, including alcohol, vaping and self-harm. Vaping may seem like the lesser of evils, but there are better options for coping during difficult times.
