My first submission:
*Quitting smoking through vaping – There's more than one way*
Most people who quit smoking through vaping will recommend devices that try to mimic the pull and hit of a cigarette. It's known as MTL – mouth-to-lung vaping. MTL is vaping as if drawing from a cigarette. This works for lots of folks, and that's great!
Myself, I didn't want to mimic a cigarette. I went straight to sub-ohm vaping. This is also known as DTL vaping: direct-to-lung, where you inhale directly to your lungs. This is what worked for me!
The shop owner who helped usher me into the world of vaping recommended a tobacco vape. This is what usually helps people quit. I insisted on fruit and dessert vapes. I wanted something that was unlike smoking to help me quit - and stay away from - cigarettes.
The recommended way doesn't necessarily mean the only way. So if you've tried it and it didn't work for you, don't give up. Get yourself an inexpensive sub-ohm starter kit, or a friend to lend you gear to try. Try different styles, different flavors and different nicotine levels.
Find what works for you because it is very much worth it! I am now over two years smoke-free. I feel better, I can smell and taste aromas and foods again (including how bad cigarettes make your clothes smell!), and most importantly I am healthier. I wish the same success for every smoker!
