PHE National No Smoking Day

As the 13th of March is No Smoking Day, this could be the day that changes your life forever.  Why not give it a try and see how you get on but remember, you don’t need to do it alone! We all know how hard it can be.  With over 100 stores nationwide, VPZ offers a wide range of products and excellent support to help you make the switch and become cigarette free.

Public health England has found vaping to be at least 95% than traditional cigarettes*.  A cigarette contains over 5000 chemicals** whereas e-liquids contains only 4, Vegetable glycerine (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), natural and artificial flavourings and nicotine (which is optional).  Let's look at some facts about what smoking actually does to the body.

Did you know that every 15 cigarettes can cause a mutation in the body? That alone is pretty scary

Smoking can lead to various health problems and diseases such as heart disease and cancer and can also double the risk of having a stroke, not to mention the various respiratory issues that can occur.

Smoking can also cause dental issues such as gum disease and halitosis

And lastly, smoking will leave your clothes and yourself smelling and we’re pretty sure that’s something you don’t want.

As many researchers have found, vaping is the most effective way to kick the habit for good as in 2017-2018, two-thirds of smokers who switched to vaping and used this alongside stop smoking services quit smoking for good.

Don’t just listen to us though, check out these stories below from VPZ customers across the UK and remember- It’s your choice! Make the 13th of March the day you change your life by making the switch…

Four years ago, Sandy entered the Vaporized store in Galashiels determined to quit smoking for good. Since then he has gradually reduced the nicotine content in his vape and has quit smoking tobacco cigarettes altogether

Having tried different methods over the last 50 years, Sandy got some bad health news and knew he had to make a change. After pressure from his family he finally went into Vaporized to find out more about how to quit smoking, and four years later he hasn’t looked back.

Sandy said:

“From the age of 17 I was smoking 20-30 a day –  and it was a strong rolling tobacco I used.

“My biggest wake-up call was when I received some bad news about my health – I had to stop smoking to save my life, it was as simple as that.’’

“My wife and son suggested that I try vaping, and although it took me a while to get used to it, vaping has helped me kick my 53-year-old habit.’’

“I’ve never had a cigarette since the day I walked into Vaporized!”

When asked about what advice he would give others looking to quit smoking, he said:

“Focus on the positives, not stinking of cigarettes was the big one for me. I remember a month into vaping I met up with my daughter, she always gives me a cuddle when she sees me. Only this time she pulled away and said, ‘Dad I can’t believe it, you don’t smell like an ashtray!’ at this moment I knew I was on the right road.

“Thanks to vaping I’m now off nicotine altogether, it’s not easy if you are a long-time smoker but a damn sight easier than going cold turkey!”
