Stop smoking: 'Slowly wean yourself from the drug' with a vape


Smoking comes with a host of negative effects on the body. This includes increasing the risk of cancer and other deadly illnesses.

What is vaping?

Vaping is when, instead of inhaling smoke, users inhale a vapour.

This vapour is created when a liquid is heated up in a device known as a vape.

How does vaping work?

Vapes heat up vaping liquid, creating an aerosol users breath in.

Vaping liquids can include nicotine, but also CBD oil and marijuana.

The liquids are often flavoured too, usually with fruity, sweet flavours.

Joanna said: “There are two potential avenues for cravings: chemical (nicotine) and behavioural (the act of smoking).”

She explained it may be the action of smoking you miss. To help with this Joanna said: “You could try keeping your mouth busy with crunchy vegetables.

“Try to take yourself away from triggering situations or to a place where you cannot smoke.

“Consider phoning or texting a friend and practising deep breathing.”
