Stop Smoking & Start Vaping
ARE YOU TRYING TO QUIT SMOKING?
We know how hard it is to quit. We’ve been there. When you’re a smoker, you’re not just addicted to nicotine, you’re addicted to your habits, your rituals. Your morning smoke, your smoke break, your happy hour puff. It’s really difficult to combat intense physiological cravings and give up the thing that you do to deal with stress at the same time!
This is why vaping is such an amazing smoking cessation tool. You’re not just getting your nicotine fix like you would if you chewed gum or slapped on a patch, you also get to keep your rituals. It fills the void that occurs when you quit with a whole new world of exciting flavours and cool devices. With vaping, there are endless flavours to explore. From rich deep tobaccos to creamy desserts to unique fruit blends. We promise, once you get into it, you won’t ever look back. At least, we didn’t.
ARE YOU NOT SURE WHY VAPING IS BETTER?
Research shows that vaping is 95%* healthier than smoking. Why? A cigarette contains 7000+ chemicals. E-liquid contains four food-safe ingredients. When you light a cigarette, you burn tobacco and inhale 7000+ chemicals into your lungs in the form of smoke. When you vape, your device heats up e-liquid and you inhale vapor which contains nicotine and FDA certified flavouring.
Besides being addictive, nicotine on its own isn’t inherently harmful. The problem with smoking is the thousands of other chemicals you are inhaling to get that nicotine, as well as the smoke itself which causes tar to form in your lungs. With vaping, your inhaling vapor instead without all the other nasty stuff and without the tar. Vapor dissipates immediately. It doesn’t stink. It doesn’t cling to your clothes and your hair, and it doesn’t make your fingers go yellow. Do we need to go on?
HAVE YOU TRIED VAPING, BUT IT WASN’T THE SAME?
It’s true, you don’t get the same burn in your lungs when you vape, as you do when you smoke a cigarette. But think about what that means for a second… Is a burning sensation really something you should be enjoying? We’re not going to lie to you and say that smoking feels the same as vaping, but we will make a case for giving it another shot. With vaping, it might take a minute to get used to the sensation. It’s definitely a smoother experience, but it can be equally satisfying.
You might not have enjoyed it because you didn’t feel your fix right away. That could be because you vaped a low concentration of nicotine. Depending how much you smoke, you could need to start on a higher concentration of nicotine like a Nic Salt juice. Nic Salt e-liquids were designed specifically to help smokers quit because they provide that “punch” of nicotine that a smoker craves. With the right kind of vape and nicotine concentration, you might very well feel differently about vaping
1. “VAPING WILL GIVE YOU POPCORN LUNG”
Popcorn lung was the term given to the lung condition that a small number of factory workers developed in a popcorn factory due to being exposed to elevated levels of diacetyl. The argument is that some e-liquid flavours such as custard contain diacetyl, and this makes them harmful, however it was proven that it would take a vast amount, as there was present in the factories to have a profound effect.
2. “VAPING IS JUST AS HARMFUL AS CIGARETTES”
Hardly anything is 100% safe, but studies show that e-cigarettes are substantially safer than traditional cigarettes. The nicotine in e-liquid is addictive but e-cigarettes do not produce tar or carbon monoxide which are just two of the most harmful elements produced from smoking cigarettes. Studies concluded that “E-cigarettes are 95% safer than smoked tobacco and they can help smokers quit.”
3. “PASSIVE VAPING IS HARMFUL TO OTHERS”
Again, there’s no harmful elements in the vapour from e-cigarettes produced like there is in traditional cigarettes. Tests in non-ventilated vape shops have also been carried out and concluded that there was nothing from the vapour and in the air, that was dangerous to others.
4. “E-CIGARETTES CAN EXPLODE”
The many headlines in the media about exploding e-cigs are almost universally related to improper use or storage of a battery. Carrying loose batteries in a pocket or bag is a big no, no. Just be sure to take care like you would with any other electrical items or lithium batteries and if you’re following the battery safety guidelines set by the manufacturer and use the device in the correct way this will not be an issue.

5. “VAPING IS MORE ADDICTIVE THAN SMOKING”
Many considering vaping believe that they will end up more addicted to nicotine than they would smoking. However, studies have shown that the nicotine delivery of an e-cig is actually less than a traditional cigarette, even when using the highest 18mg nicotine strength available in e-liquids. In fact, many JAC customers use e-cigs as a method of progressively reducing their nicotine intake before quitting completely.
6. “VAPING DOES NOT HELP PEOPLE QUIT SMOKING”
This one is one of the craziest myths as there is plenty of evidence out there to suggest that using an e-cigarette has helped a lot of people in kicking the habit. Public Health England themselves have said that “an estimated 2.9 million adults in Great Britain currently use e-cigarettes and of these, 1.5 million people have completely stopped smoking.” E-cigarettes are now part of this year’s stop smoking campaign by PHE.
7. “VAPING IS JUST FOR CLOUD CHASERS”
A lot of people have the idea that vaping is all about producing massive plumes of vapour, when in fact the reality is that people mainly use e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking and for no other reason than this. Ok, so you will see that guy walking down the street vaping with huge clouds behind him, but this is because of the set-up he has and that’s his preference. When you start vaping you can choose a set up that is discreet or more powerful depending on what your personal needs are. If you’re not sure where to get started, contact the knowledgeable customer service team at Infinity Vape and they will be sure to recommend a device that’s suitable for you.
8. “E-CIGARETTES ENCOURAGE YOUNG PEOPLE TO SMOKE”
With all the different sweet e-liquid flavours available in the industry many people argue that this entices younger people to vape and then get into smoking. However, surveys have shown only a negligible uptake among never-smokers, including young people. Smoking rates have also continued to decline amongst younger people and Public Health England are continually monitoring this. Furthermore, just like with tobacco, vape vendors also will challenge a purchaser’s age if they believe that they are under 18.
9. “E-LIQUID CONTAINS ANTI-FREEZE”
Anti-freeze contains the ingredient PG (Propylene Glycol) which is also used in e-liquids, so this is where the confusion comes from with this myth. PG is in fact added to anti-freeze to make it non-toxic. E-liquid itself does not contain anti-freeze and again the ingredients are regulated by TPD, so no need to be concerned that you are inhaling toxins like you would with cigarettes.
10. “VAPING IS MORE EXPENSIVE THAN CIGARETTES”
Initial set up costs of an e-cigarette are more than a pack of cigarettes, but once you are set up with a device you only need to purchase coils/cartomizers and the e-liquid to keep going. The equivalent amount of e-liquid costs a fraction to a pack of cigarettes and you will be sure to notice those extra pennies in your pocket over time, as well as feeling the health benefits.
To conclude, nothing is 100% safe, but studies have now shown that switching to vaping is 95% safer than smoking, so why not give vaping a go?
