Stoptober 2021: Vape Kits To Help You Quit

Posted by Vape Superstore on

It’s that time of year again - Stoptober 2021 is officially here. It definitely hasn’t been your run of the mill year but that’s no reason why you can’t finally kick the smoking habit you’ve been wanting to break. One of the best things you can do for your health is putting down the cigarettes for once and for all, complete with the support of other smokers doing the same thing. If you haven’t heard of it before, Stoptober is a Public Health England initiative that happens every year. It gives you the resources, support and motivation to leave your smoking habit in the past.

The premise is simple, if you can give up smoking for 28 days, you’re five times more likely to quit for good.

ThingS to expect when you quit:

The reality is, your body starts healing itself within the first few days you have your last cigarette. Cigarettes contain a lot of harmful chemicals which affect every organ in your body - the more obvious organs being your lungs and heart.

When you stub out that last cigarette, within just 20 minutes your heart rate will normalise and 48 hours later, your body will have expelled any carbon monoxide too. Win-win. The first three days are typically the most difficult for people to quit because of these reasons. The cravings peak around the 48 - 72 hour mark, so if you can push through those you’re already doing great.

After that three day mark, your breathing will start to improve. Even the little things like getting to the top of the staircase in your house will be easier. You might also notice a bit of coughing - don’t worry, it’s all for the good. Your body will start to expel debris that has been sitting in your lungs making room for more space for fresh air to make its way throughout your body.

Once you get towards the end of your 28 day period, your heart will be happier too. Blood will pump more freely - long story short, less stitches and leg cramps and way more energy¹.

Aside from all of that, smoking is expensive. Even if you’re a moderate smoker getting through a 10 pack a day, you still stand to save around a whopping £2000 a year when you give up smoking.

What do I need to do before Stoptober starts?

There are a few things to keep in mind (and do) before making a quit attempt. The first of which is letting people you’ve decided to quit. Having the support of friends and family goes a long way - they’ll be your biggest cheerleaders (and understand why you might feel a bit irritable those first few days). They’ll also be able to check in with you - bonus points if you’ve got friends who have already quit smoking themselves. The more support you have the better. You might also want to download the NHS Stoptober app.

You’ll also want to recognise your smoking habits and what triggers your need to smoke. For some people it’s more of a stress thing, others it’s the habit of having a cigarette after a meal or over coffee. Knowing when you’ll feel more inclined to light up will help you prepare (and potentially avoid) your usual triggers.

The next thing we’d strongly recommend is removing any temptation before October 1st - bin your cigarettes and minimise the amount of time you spend around smokers can also help.

Finally, if you’re wanting to use a quit aid, make sure you’re well stocked before you make your quit attempt. Whether that’s a vape, patches or gum, make sure you have everything you need before Stoptober officially starts. Keeping those cravings at bay for at least the first three days will put you in good stead for a successful quit attempt.

Back in 2018, PHE (Public Health England) voiced their support of using vaping as a means of quitting smoking. For a lot of us, it isn’t just the nicotine we crave but the tangible feel of holding a cigarette and inhaling smoke we find calming. Vaping offers the same sensation as well as the nicotine hit without all the carbon monoxide, tar and smoke you’d get from cigarettes.

If you’re looking to use vaping to help you quit smoking, you’ll need to know a few things first:

  • Which nicotine strength is best for you. Depending on how much you smoked before, your nicotine level will vary. Generally speaking we recommend nic salts for new vapers, they offer a smooth inhale as well as a rapid nicotine hit when you need it most. We’ve written a whole guide to nicotine which will give you an idea of which is best suited to you. If you want a more personal recommendation of course you’re more than welcome to contact us directly too.  
  • You’ll need a kit that will work best for you. Generally we would point new vapers in the direction of vape pens and pod kits. When you’re tackling a quit attempt, you want everything to be as simple as possible. Choosing a pod kit that only requires you to click a pod into place and inhale to vape is about as easy as lighting up used to be.

Which vape kits and e-liquids are best for new vapers?

If you’re starting out, we recommend the plus Ohm coils (1.0ohm or more). You can use these with nic salts for a strong nicotine hit, or regular 50:50 e-liquids.

SMOK NORD 4

The Smok Nord 4 Pod Kit is a popular kit for first time vapers. Why? It’s compact, stylish, has a monstrous 2000mAh battery and gives you a wattage output of 5-80W. Smok’s Nord 4 comes with a refillable pod with a side-fill port allowing you to fill with your choice of high VG e-liquids. You’ll also get a spare to swap out once it's time for a pod change. The Nord 4 also gives you the option to vape using direct to lung or mouth to lung which means you can experience the best of both worlds. Traditional smoking offers a mouth to lung experience whilst direct to lung means the vapour you breathe in goes directly to your lungs eliminating the need to inhale again after you draw the vapour into your mouth. You’ll get a gentle throat hit and modest clouds with the 0.4 RPM Mesh Coil or a cloudy exhale minus the throat hit with the 0.16 RPM2 Mesh coil. In addition to being able to decide your vaping style, you can also adjust your airflow setting with the Smok Nord 4.

UWELL CALIBURN A2

The Caliburn A2 is another compact pod kit that caters to mouth to lung vapers. It comes with a 2ml refillable pod and a spare once it’s time to change out your pods. You won’t be able to interchange vaping styles with the Caliburn A2, however you will get a warmer throat kit due to it’s 0.9ohm coil. The Caliburn A2 comes with a 520mAh battery and a 15W fixed wattage output. It also has dual fire operation which means you can fire up the Caliburn A2 by simply inhaling into the mouthpiece or by pushing the fire button. If you’re sold on the Caliburn A2, keep in mind that it does not come with a type-C charging cable and would have to be purchased separately. We recommend the use of 50-50 and Nicotine Salt E-Liquids to get the best use from the Caliburn A2.

The PockeX kit from Aspire has been a firm favourite amongst the vaping community for years now and for good reason.

Aspire’s PockeX Pen kit has a single button for turning the device on and off as well as firing the battery. The PockeX Pen comes housed with a 1500mAh battery to provide you with hours upon hours of vape time. We recommend using the PockeX with high VG with the 0.6ohm coil and 50-50 e-liquids with the 1.2ohm coil.
