Vaping to help quit smoking

Quitting smoking can be difficult, but it is possible. Vaping products and e-cigarettes deliver nicotine in a less harmful way than smoking cigarettes. These products may reduce health risks for smokers who can't or don't want to quit using nicotine:

  • on their own

  • by using counselling services

  • by using medication or approved nicotine replacement therapies like:

  • gums

  • patches

  • lozenges

While evidence is still emerging, some evidence suggests that using e-cigarettes is linked to improved rates of success.

While quitting cigarettes, you may go through a time when you use both cigarettes and vaping products. Switching from tobacco cigarettes to vaping will reduce your exposure to many toxic and cancer causing chemicals.
