People have always been concerned with their looks and weight gain has been one of the biggest problems of anyone who has quit smoking. Hell, a lot of people started smoking because they believed it would help keep them slim.
That’s not entirely true, and certainly it is not the whole story. Yet, it is true that nicotine can suppress the appetite, therefore resulting in people eating less due to hunger pangs. But that doesn’t account for people who overeat for other reasons and there are many, I can assure you.
While vaping is very effective in helping you quit smoking and the e-liquids are available in the most delicious flavours on the planet, they are still only flavours added to Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG). Therefore, unlike the cakes, cookies, cereal or fruit they replicate the taste of, they do not possess the same caloric properties. And if you still feel the need to use nicotine as an appetite suppressant, buy e-liquids with nicotine. You get all of the benefits without the harmful additives of smoking.
In France, people are still resisting the quit smoking movement chiefly because they believe they will get fat and we all know how important looking good is to the French. Last year alone, over one million people stopped smoking. Most notably, the majority of smokers who quit were males aged 18 to 24 and females aged 55-64. Vaping is making a huge impact on people all over the globe.
Fortunately, because you can get nicotine in e-liquids, you can have your cake and vape it too! Not to mention, although I think we should, you can have all of the things you might have smoked for, without the corresponding harmful substances. Which, I have to admit, makes a hell of a lot more sense to me and it costs me less money as well. What’s not to like there, I ask you?
No one can deny the versatility and creativeness that can be found amongst the Vape set and I happen to think that it adds to the effectiveness and helps account for the rousing success that ex-smokers have found helped them quit and stay off of cigarettes for good. I speak to people all of the time who proudly share how long they’ve been vaping and how long since they’ve smoked.
Less Fat, More Facts
I’ll admit, I never thought I’d be able to quit but vaping has made it easy and I haven’t gained any weight due to vaping. In fact, speaking for myself, I have found that I feel better and have more energy than I’ve had in years. I do use nicotine in some of my juices, but not all. Some of my e-liquids, I just use sans nicotine because I love the flavour. As I said, vaping is versatility in a bottle. (Although it’s just as versatile in equipment too.)
If you’ve quit smoking and taken up vaping, but find you’re still anxious or don’t quite know what to do with yourself, try using a vape pen or kit which is closer to an actual cigarette, so you can still behave the same way while vaping as you did when smoking. Stop smoking specialists know that a great deal of our smoking ‘habit’ is behavior oriented and we must deal with that side of it as well. There’s so many different kits available on the market, you can make your vaping as unique as you are.
So stop worrying about getting fat, and get fabulous!
