#STOPtober2021: Quit Smoking (For Good)

You’ve heard that vaping can help you quit smoking—maybe you even tried an e-cigarette back in the day, but it wasn’t for you. Maybe you’ve been turned off by fruity flavours (or the cloying smell of your friend’s grape soda e-liquid), or you felt like you weren’t getting the same “fix” as you would from a cigarette. Maybe you’re intimidated by the sheer number of vape products on the market and don’t know where to start your vape journey.

Whatever your reasons for not making the switch yet, we’re here to tell you that there’s still hope for you to quit smoking—for good.

Join the growing community of ex-smokers this STOPtober!

The vaping industry is constantly evolving, with new products entering the market at a lightning-fast pace. It can be understandably difficult for current smokers to know where to begin.

While the world of vaping might seem hugely complex, you can find your niche by asking yourself a few simple questions about your preferences and priorities. No matter what you’re looking for, Vape Green can help you get started!

Best Low-Maintenance Vape for Beginners

Polar Mint Disposable Vape Device by IVG
Fuji Apple Melon Disposable Vape Device by IVG

Disposable Vape Bar by IVG (£5.99 or 4 for £15*)

This one is for those of us who forgot to plug our phones in last night: a vape that requires no recharging, no refilling, no priming—no maintenance at all. Right out of the packaging, this disposable vape comes fully charged and ready to use with up to 600 puffs in its arsenal. Everyone vapes differently, so if you’re looking to branch out into the world of disposables, we recommend ordering a few different flavours to find your groove. Luckily, you can order any 4 of these IVG Bars for £15 with VapeGreen’s STOPtober Special (Regular price: 3 for £15).

For some, a disposable vape can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks—it all depends on your personal habits.

*Limited time only. Offer ends end of October.

Pros:

  • No maintenance

  • High nicotine strength – perfect for current smokers

  • Affordable

Cons:

  • Not refillable/rechargeable (finite use) 

  • Not the most eco-friendly option

Most Affordable Vape for Beginners

Strawberry Banana Disposable Pod Kit by Elf Bar 600
Blue Razz Lemonade Disposable Pod Kit by Elf Bar 600

Disposable Pod Kit by Elf Bar 600 (£4.99 or 3 for £12)

No matter what you vape (unless you’re vaping pure gold, which we do not recommend), you’ll save money by switching from tobacco products to vaping. According to Cancer Research UK, smoking cigarettes costs the average consumer over two and a half times more than vaping—and that includes the cost of buying a new, mid-range vape kit and an assortment of juices. For those looking to save even more, Vape Green has you covered.

If you’re new to vaping and want a super affordable, high-quality vape, look no further. The Disposable Pod Kit by Elf Bar 600 has all of the features of the low-maintenance disposable vape at an unbelievable price point.

Pros:

  • Super affordable

  • No maintenance

  • High nicotine strength – perfect for current smokers

Cons:

  • Not refillable/rechargeable (finite use) 

  • Not the most eco-friendly option

Best Vape for Heavy Smokers

Aspire Vilter Pod Kit

Let’s cut to the chase: this little beauty comes with a replaceable paper filter drip tip and automatic draw activation, which is great for heavy smokers who’ve tried Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) but felt like they were missing out on the physical act of smoking. On top of its amazing mouthpiece, the Aspire Vilter Pod Kit is compatible with freebase 50/50 E-liquids, as well as Nic Salt E-liquids—a great choice for heavy smokers, as Nic Salts provide a higher concentration of nicotine for a much smoother, more satisfying throat hit. Once the siren’s call of the tobacco menace no longer beckons you, simply replace the paper tip with the reusable plastic one included in the kit and opt for a lower nicotine concentration. Quitting is never easy—but the Aspire Vilter Pod Kit certainly helps.

Pros:

  • Paper filter drip tip

  • Affordable

  • More eco-friendly than a disposable vape

  • Greater choice of flavours

Cons:

The Eco-Friendly Option

Uwell Caliburn A2 Pod Kit

It’s now more important than ever to consider the climate impact of the products we buy as consumers, and while disposable vapes are a great stepping stone for would-be vapers and current smokers, they’re not a great long-term solution—for you or the planet. Thankfully, vaping isn’t confined to those complex, phone-sized mods with their huge plumes of vapour. You can get a pocket-sized, beginner-friendly pod kit without breaking the bank or the planet. 

Enter: the Uwell Caliburn A2 Pod Kit. Simply fill the replaceable pod with your desired freebase 50/50 E-liquid—or, better yet, try a Nic Salt. Nic Salt E-liquids are recommended for current and heavy smokers, as they contain higher concentrations of nicotine without burning the throat, making it easier to get the nicotine fix you’re looking for out of your device.

Pros:

  • Better for the planet

  • Beginner-friendly

  • Greater choice of flavours

Cons:

  • Some maintenance needed (battery charging, pod filling)

  • Pods will require replacement (£10.99 for 4 pods)

I've got a vape. What about E-liquids?

So, you’ve got a new pod kit, and you’re looking for some E-liquids to soothe that pesky nicotine craving. For heavy smokers, we recommend using Nic Salt E-liquids, as they have a higher nicotine strength and a smoother inhale—perfect for scratching your itch. Beyond that, the next move is all yours: what are you craving?

For Your Sweet Tooth

Ready to quit smoking for good?

Despite vape research being in its infancy, smokers around the globe are learning that vaping can help them quit smoking for good. There’s a growing body of evidence which proves that vaping is up to 95% less harmful than smoking—meanwhile, less than half of adults in England believe this. The fact of the matter is that vaping is a valid (and much healthier) choice for those who are looking to quit, with no proven links to cancer and no risk of secondhand exposure to those around you.

So, now that you know that vaping really is all it’s cracked up to be—what are you waiting for? Make the switch this #STOPtober and join the 68% of vapers who never thought they’d be able to quit smoking until vaping came around.
