Giving up smoking is something that most people want to do. One fairly recent survey showed that around 70% of smokers would like to break the habit. Yet, despite being motivated to do so many people find it incredibly difficult to quit smoking.
Most people have tried, more than once. Usually, by going cold turkey. If you fall into this category and have never tried giving up gradually, it is well worth your while trying to do so. Many people find that it works for them. Here are a few tips on how to stop smoking gradually:
MAKE USE OF THE DIFFERENT GRADES OF VAPE JUICE
Vaping is a surprisingly effective way to stop smoking cigarettes. But if you are not careful you can still end up being addicted to nicotine. It is just that you are consuming it in a different format. Most vaping firms are aware that this is not the outcome people want. That is why they make their nicotine vape juices in different nicotine strengths. Over time you can taper off your nicotine consumption until you can switch to a high VG e-liquid, which typically tops out at around 6mg. Eventually, most people reach the point where they can enjoy vaping nicotine-free e-liquids.
However, not everyone likes the idea of using vaping to give up smoking. If you fall into that category, do not worry, there are lots of other methods you can use to help you to gradually smoke less and less.
FOLLOW THE ADVICE GIVEN BY YOUR LOCAL HEALTH SERVICE
If you have a reasonably good level of self-control, simply following the advice of a health professional may be all you need to do. You can easily find that type of guidance on websites like this one.
USE A QUIT SMOKING APP
Or, if you prefer, you can use an app to help you. There are some good, tried and tested ones available. You can find out about five of the best by clicking here. If you do decide to use one that you have to pay for, try to find one that is capable of guiding you through quitting gradually or going cold turkey. That way if the slow but sure approach does not work you can try the more drastic cold turkey method without having to pay for another app to do so.
PHYSICAL DEVICES THAT CAN HELP YOU TO GRADUALLY STOP SMOKING
Another alternative is to use a physical device or two to help you to gradually reduce the amount you smoke. There are plenty available. Amongst the oldest and most popular are the QuitKey keyring and the Quitbit lighter.
They both work in a similar way. The QuitKey is a little device that monitors how much you are smoking for a week, then comes up with a planned way for you to cut down gradually. So that your body is able to slowly adjust to managing with less and less nicotine. You use it to tell you when you can and cannot smoke. The Quitbit lighter does something similar, but it is you who decides what the delay between cigarettes should be. They are both surprisingly effective and can easily be bought online.
