Why Quit?

It is so important to quit vaping for the sake of your body, brain, and overall well-being. Using nicotine might prevent you from doing what you want in the future and living the life you dream of.

Although it may seem like all of your classmates and friends are vaping, the reality is that only 1 in 4 report vaping. 

While the idea of quitting might seem intimidating, know this: you’re not alone! With the right resources by your side, you can do it. Ask a friend or family member to quit with you. Those who have support while they are quitting are more successful!

Know Your Triggers

Don’t get tripped up when you try to quit! One of the most important steps in successfully quitting vaping is understanding your triggers. Triggers are the people, places or things that make you want to vape, such as:

  • Finishing a meal
  • Drinking coffee, tea, or alcohol
  • Driving in the car
  • Socializing with friends
  • Feeling stressed, worried, lonely or sad
  • Celebrating or having fun

Once you start to understand what your triggers are, you can begin to address them and get onto the path of quitting.
