On The Rise
According to the Public Health England, not only has the amount of people who smoke cigarettes decreased by over 400,000 last year, but every minute and a half, someone else quits smoking in England. The PHE goes on to say that the best way to quit is with expert help from local stop smoking services together with stop smoking aids. In 2017 to 2018, half (51%) of smokers who got this package of support managed to quit and among those who used an e-cigarettes/vaping in their quit attempt, the success rate was up to 63%. So as you can see, vaping makes the challenge of quitting smoking not only far easier, but also more likely to work.
With promotions like Stoptober and others of its kind, vaping is becoming ever more popular and also proving time and time again that vaping is more effective as a stop smoking aid.
Despite new smokers starting up and those ex-smokers who relapse, there are now one million fewer smokers in England than there were in 2014. That’s a significant number and it should be encouraging to all of those smokers out there who still would like to quit.
Of the over six million smokers in England, six in ten want to quit but most try to quit or ‘cold turkey’. Which only leads to greater frustration since that method is the least effective of them all. The most successful stop smoking attempts use a combination of effective support and aids or replacement therapy such as vaping. Time and time again, we have seen people quit smoking, even those people who have been heavy, long term smokers.
NHS Prescriptions And Help
With the NHS sponsoring programs like providing prescriptions to patients for vaping tools and e-liquids, the number of people successfully quitting should continue to increase over the upcoming months and years. Not only will the citizens become healthier, it will also decrease the demands on funds for a great many smoking related illnesses, cut down on litter and therefore saving money there too, but also help issues caused by secondhand smoke to decrease as well.
There are so many far reaching benefits from vaping and every time another smoker moves to vape rather than smoke, we as a nation, succeed right along with them.
Three million people have already made the switch from smoking to vaping and there are many reasons for this. First of all, Vaping gives you choices. Lots and lots of choices. Vaping can be fun, you can be creative with the e-liquids, experience about every flavour on the planet and it’s safer, cheaper and better all around than smoking. So, yeah, it’s not too difficult to see why so many people have begun to vape. All around the world people are taking charge of their lives and moving in a better direction for themselves and their environment.
There’s plenty of support out there for people who want to try Vaping. In fact, Vape cafes and shops are springing up all over. You will have questions but you can easily find the answers and feel free to experiment. After all, vaping gives you that choice too. It works to help you stop smoking, yes, but it’s also an entity unto itself. It allows you to truly control how and when you use it.
Public Health England has a tobacco control plan in place to help produce a generation in England which is smoke free.
The objectives of the tobacco control plan are to:
Reduce the number of 15 year olds who regularly smoke from 8% to 3% or less
Reduce smoking among adults in England from 15.5% to 12% or less
Reduce the inequality gap in smoking prevalence, between those in routine and manual occupations and the general population
Reduce the prevalence of smoking in pregnancy from 10.5% to 6% or less
The aim is to achieve these objectives by the end of 2022.

Yes, some of the plans and regulations are working to help end smoking for all people, however, they cannot account for the overwhelming increase in people who are now vaping. Over three million! In just a few short years, vaping has caught on like a brush fire. Everywhere you go, whatever you’re doing, you see people with their kits enjoying their favourite e-liquid. And why shouldn’t they?
Vaping is becoming a way of life for many people, including myself, who at the age of fifty-six was finally able to give up cigarettes completely. I love Vaping and I could never have quit cigarettes without taking up vaping. Vaping has made my life simpler, saved me money, reduced risks to my health and it’s fun and far less costly than smoking ever was.
No Passing Fancy
If you’re considering quitting and or curious about Vaping, I cannot recommend it highly enough. Join the three million others who have made the switch and love it.
Fads come and go and I’m sure that there are those of you who presumed that Vaping was just another flash-in-the-pan fad, because I’ll admit, I didn’t expect it to catch on or to become so incredibly popular either. However, back then, I didn’t realize just how much safer, cheaper and better for you it was. Now that I know, I am not surprised in the least that the number of people who Vape is increasing so rapidly. And it isn’t just ex-smokers that make up these rising numbers. Vaping is also for people who just like to enjoy the social aspect of the culture, or enjoys the e-liquid flavours without having to worry about the calorie count that would accompany the actual food items that the juices replicate.
Whatever reason you decide to take up Vaping, once you do, you are on a road to great tasting, safer, less expensive replacements for smoking as well as an all around good time. Join the other three million vapers and see for yourself.
