New Year's Resolution Finally Quit Smoking: With the Help of E-Cigarettes

The new year is approaching which means it’s the perfect time to finally change your life and live more healthily. For many people, New Year’s Day is not just another day, but a chance to make a big change. It’s time to say goodbye to bad food and laziness and hello to daily exercise and healthy food—or at least, that’s the plan.
In reality, things don’t quite work out as planned. Most resolutions fail within the first few days – if they get started at all. If you wake up with a headache and hangover on the 1st of January, chances are you won’t feel like starting a new active lifestyle.
The biggest problem with New Year’s resolutions is that they usually don’t involve a plan and are merely wishful thinking. Few people actually have a strategy for implementing resolutions into their day-to-day life.
This is also the main issue with the most common New Year’s resolution: quitting smoking. It always sounds easy and achievable, but once the new year rolls around, it is much harder than anticipated.
However, there might finally be a cure for this problem. A few years ago, a new tool to help smokers quit was invented and has since helped countless smokers to kick their habit. As you might have guessed, we’re talking about the e-cigarette. If it is used correctly, it can offer smokers a relatively easy way to quit. So, if you finally want to stop smoking next year then make sure you have this tool on your side and you may actually succeed.

Quitting Through E-Cigarettes—does this actually work? 

There has been a lot of criticism of e-cigarettes in the past, but we know one thing for sure: These devices are by far the most effective way to quit smoking.
Any smoker who has ever tried to quit with the help of nicotine patches or chewing gum knows how difficult it can be. Even if the physical addiction is satisfied, the psychological desire remains. Smokers often underestimate the mental side of addiction, failing to realise that it can be stronger than the physical addiction.
The e-cigarette manages to satisfy both components of addiction at the same time. Depending on the chosen liquid, e-cigarette users get their nicotine and at the same time the satisfaction of inhaling smoke (or in this case vapour).
Since the invention of the e-cigarette, there have been numerous reports from smokers confirming how effective it is as a cessation aid. According to these reports, electronic cigarettes have many advantages over other tools to quit smoking. That’s why they could deliver the help you need to finally make your New Year’s resolution come true.

The Optimal Strategy

If you want to finally quit smoking next year, you should develop a strategy for it right now. And we're here to help you. After all, everything is easier if you have a well thought-out plan and concrete goals. They not only provide the necessary structure, but also the right motivation.
When creating your strategy for quitting, the first thing you should consider is that there are e-liquids with different nicotine levels. For instance, the liquids for the Cigalike are available in the following strengths:
  • 19 mg nicotine—strong and good to start with.
  • 11 mg nicotine—less strong and good to reduce nicotine dependence.
  • 0 mg nicotine—when you still need the “activity” but not the nicotine. 
The optimal strategy for quitting looks like this: On the 1st of January, fill your e-cigarette with the strongest liquid (19 mg) to keep your withdrawal symptoms to a minimum. Many heavy smokers report that they don’t experience withdrawal symptoms at all.
After one week, you should change to a liquid with less nicotine. This approach will allow you to lower your nicotine dependency step by step. Alternatively, you could simply use your e-cigarette less frequently.
For the final step, you should then switch to a nicotine-free liquid. That way you can conquer your physical addiction to nicotine before you finally quit vaping as well, living smoke-free forever after!
