Vaping to Quit Smoking?

At Vape Merchant we invite smokers to try an alternative, one that requires very little change to what they currently do, but that will help to improve their health, wellbeing and finances. 

When first trying vape products as a smoking alternative, it can be confusing as to which device, flavour and strength is right for you. We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you on your journey.

Vaping to quit smoking?

Many of us are ex-smokers and we know how hard it is to become smoke free. It’s hard to explain or understand if you haven’t experienced it.  Vaping can be a way to quit smoking by getting nicotine without the harmful carcinogens and toxins that come from burning tobacco. 

Although vaping’s much less harmful than smoking, it’s not harmless. So you should plan to eventually quit vaping too, but only when you know you won’t go back to smoking.

What device should I use as a smoking alternative?

For smokers intending to quit, we recommend the Phix Pod system. It's simple to use – you just pop in a Phix Pod, and puff it like a cigarette. There's no buttons and no mess.

Phix pods contain nicotine salt based eLiquid to satisfy nicotine cravings. These are best suited for those looking for an experience that mimics traditional cigarettes. 

Are Vape Merchant products safe?

Vape Merchant ensures our products are industry tested and our flavours are designed to be compliant with world-leading regulations established for e-cigarettes by the European Union and are made with the highest-quality nicotines. 

All our devices and e-liquids are manufactured in quality facilities – ensuring the practices and guidelines recommended by agencies that control authorisation and licensing of e-cigarette related products are adhered to.

Vape Merchant products do not contain any ingredients known to be harmful. No Diacetyl.  No Vitamin E Oil.

Is Vaping safe?

Studies show it to be significantly less harmful than smoking, however, there are currently no studies available that identify any long-term risks associated with vaping.

At the end of the day the best choice is not to inhale any substance into your lungs. If you don’t already smoke then don’t start vaping. If you do smoke then vaping may have the potential to help you quit.
