    Good Evening,

    Welcome to our new forum dedicated to discussions about quitting vaping. While some successfully quit smoking using vaping and e-cigarette products, for some, eliminating vaping can be challenging. Let us know how you are doing and what questions you have!

    Hello. I quit smoking with E-cigarettes roughly 3 years ago. Was on E-cigarettes for roughly 2 months. Then quit completely. And then eventually went back to E-cigarettes. It was easier to hide from my spouse and in fact tastes better!!! Lol! But I am now having a real hard time quitting it.

    Hello joshdavies
    Thank you for joining us here on Smokers Helpline Online, and sharing about your quit.
    Firstly, congrats on quitting tobacco! That is a huge accomplishment, and we are glad to hear something that helped you quit.
    Many people find after vaping for a while, they are ready to quit it, too. Much of the strategies and tips used for quitting tobacco can apply to quitting vaping too.
    Can you tell us more, joshdavies, what sort of strategies really helped you quit tobacco?
    Sarah

    Hi all, 

    I am brand new to the community and am quitting the vape. It has to be dangerous how much I must have done, right? (any concrete data on the effects to lungs?)
    I also have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder this calendar year, and am relatively new to my medication.
    The meds have helped me get a grip on reality again, and prioritize which changes are needed.
    Previous attempts to quit I have faced intrusive thoughts that can take me down in an instant - I can fall into a period of severe depression any minute (been there done that),but it HAS to be worth it.

    Most of all I wanted to share that I am rooting hard for everyone on the same journey!

    Scott

    Hi Scott, 

    Welcome to Smokers' Helpline and congrats on taking steps towards quitting vaping. It's great to have you here with us. 

    While there is still research that needs to be done about the effects of vaping. I can direct you to the Health Canada website to get some reliable information. 

    Have you talked to your health care providers about your plans to quit? They can also be a great resource and support as your making changes. 

    Rooting for you,
    Emily
