Support to quit nicotine vaping

If you have been vaping for a long-time and are sure you will not go back to smoking, you should also work towards quitting vaping.

Tips to reduce nicotine vaping:

  1. Reduce frequency of vaping overtime
  2. Slowly reduce the strength of nicotine within the e-liquid

Do not rush this step. You should only reduce your vaping frequency and nicotine strength when you feel ready and know for sure you will not go back to smoking.
