Participate in the Great American Smokeout on November 16

Each year since 1976, on the third Thursday of November, the American Cancer Society sponsors the Great American Smokeout. It is an annual nation-wide attempt to give up smoking, the single largest preventable cause of early death in the United States. This year, for the first time since its launch, a similar smoking cessation program in the UK, Stoptober, endorsed e-cigarettes as an effective and less harmful nicotine delivery alternative in order to help British smokers give up their deadly habit.

Rather than trying to quit cold-turkey, an increasing number of cigarette smokers are turning to vaping, and it’s easy to see why. In addition to delivering nicotine without the thousands of toxic chemicals present in cigarette smoke, vaping is cheaper than smoking cigarettes, it doesn’t leave an unwanted and unpleasant smell, and it comes in flavors that smokers are used to, such as tobacco and menthol, as well as an assortment of other flavors.

Additionally, many smokers want to gradually wean themselves off of nicotine, something that is not possible with traditional cigarettes. Sure, people try smoking fewer cigarettes or smoking less of the cigarette during a smoke break, but with e-cigarettes, they can adjust their nicotine levels. At Bulk E-Juice, for example, all e-juice flavors have adjustable nicotine levels, from 0 to 24 MG, so smokers can slowly reduce their nicotine dependence and eventually give it up entirely if that is their goal.

Another factor to consider is that the act of smoking has become an integral part of many cigarette users’ lives. Smokers take pleasure and comfort in the hand-to-mouth action that they are so accustomed to. Nicotine patches or nicotine gums, unfortunately, don’t deliver in that aspect. Vaping, on the other hand, is remarkably similar to smoking cigarettes; you inhale, feel the satisfying throat and lung hit, and exhale.
