Pave the way for a healthier lifestyle and put the cigarettes down this New Year.
With the New Year looming, it’s time that we all start thinking about the annual resolution. For many, it may be a good excuse to start the gym, go on the holiday of a lifetime or dye your hair a radical colour– but for others, it serves as an opportunity to start afresh and give up smoking. The New Year could welcome a number of health changes and benefits if you decide to undertake the challenge that is putting those cigarettes down.
If you are looking for an easier transition, vaping is an ideal stop-gap to help you through the initial shock and withdrawal from your cigarettes. According to the NHS, e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than smoking cigarettes.
Smoking not only takes a huge toll on your health, but also on your bank balance.
The 2018 budget saw a pack of 20 cigarettes rise to an average cost of £10.80. That means if you decide to give up smoking cigarettes and you had previously smoked, for example, 10 per day you could save £37.80 per week, £164.25 per month and £1971 per year. You can work out how much you will personally save by filling in the amount you pay for a pack of 20 and the quantity you smoke per day.
If you decide to quit smoking this New Year, you’ll notice improvements almost immediately. Within the first 72 hours after stopping smoking, breathing should become easier due to your bronchial tubes relaxing; there will be no nicotine left in the body and carbon monoxide will have been removed from your body, allowing your oxygen levels to return to normal.
You’ll still be feeling the benefits for years after – 10 years after quitting smoking the risk of lung cancer is half the amount of that if you were still smoking and after 15 years the risk of heart attack returns to the same as someone who has never smoked.
Using an e-cigarette is a great way to help you stop smoking. According to the NHS in the years 2018 and 2019, two-thirds of smokers were able to quit cigarettes through the combined help of e-cigarettes and a local Stop Smoking Service. Here at LiQuid, we want there to be extensive options for people, providing a new pathway in January for a less damaging alternative.
Whether or not you see a financial benefit swapping to vaping does depend on the amount of cigarettes you smoked and the brands you chose to buy. However, with our range of £1 e-Liquids here at LiQuid, it’s highly likely you will be feeling a significant financial change for the better.
Vape kits are a great way to move away from cigarettes and towards E-Cigarettes , although it may seem like a larger outgoing at once than cigarettes, in the long run, you will feel the benefit of only having to renew your e-Liquids.
