WHAT HAPPENS AFTER ONE MONTH OF NOT SMOKING?
After a month of not smoking, your body has started the task of healing the damage done by smoking. Improvements to your skin, taste and smell senses, breathing and blood pressure should be present, with better circulation and the elimination of carbon monoxide allowing better nutrient delivery throughout the body. Expect to cough as the lungs clear, but evidence suggests coughing is reduced if you quit with an E-Cigarette!
An e cigarette is a device that can look like a tobacco cigarette, but instead of burning tobacco and producing cigarette smoke, it vaporizes a liquid solution. You inhale vapours which contain nicotine (if desired), flavourings, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerine. It simulates smoking without many of the health risks associated with traditional cigarettes.
We explore some of the surprising benefits from using an e-cigarette after just one month!
E-CIGARETTES ARE SAFER THAN SMOKING
There have been public statements released from the top UK medical groups (British Royal College of Physicians and Cancer Research UK, to name a few) that states that vaping is safer than smoking cigarettes. Public Health England say vaping is “at least 95% less harmful.” because when you vape, there is NO inhalation of tar or 4,000+ chemicals that are found in tobacco smoke.
There is absolutely no smoke, only vapour. In a normal cigarette, the smoke you inhale contains the tar and carbon monoxide, and this is what leads to most of the long-term health damage from smoking (heart disease, lung cancer, high blood pressure).
CONTROL OVER NICOTINE
Vaping gives you full control over the nicotine you put in your body. SMOKO sell a range of refills which come in a variety of nicotine strengths and flavours - anything from 2.0% to 0%. We always suggest that if you are new to vaping, then start off with high nicotine levels and gradually work their way down to lower strengths.
Nicotine withdrawal is the main reason why people find it so hard to quit smoking, but this can be done.
NO HORRIBLE ASHTRAY SMELL
One of the biggest advantages of vaping is that you will not stink of the smell of tobacco. A big complaint from many smokers is the lingering smell of stale tobacco that is left on your clothes, or in your car or home. With e-cigarettes, there is virtually no odour.
There are some vaping devices that are on the market right now which may produce a slight aroma, but it is s a long way from the smell of stale smoke and cigarette butts. If you use SMOKO's E-Cigarette, you will not smell a thing – other than the nice smell of the flavour in the refills.
VAPING AND E-CIGARETTES ARE MUCH CHEAPER
There are lots of ecig products out in the market today and they range in cost — from around £4.99 to £125.00 and that suits most users. Whether you want a simple disposable e-cigarette, or a more sophisticated vape mod, there is a vape out there that you can start using today.
Have a look at SMOKO's reusable e-cigarette starter kits which are at a more than reasonable price of £9.99.
YOUR SKIN WILL START TO CLEAR UP
Smoking has a significant effect on your skin. As soon as you stop the bad habit, you will start to notice that your skin is gets loads more oxygen and nutrients that will delay wrinkles and slow premature facial ageing. The chances of developing skin cancer are also vastly reduced, while conditions like psoriasis and acne are much less likely to be a problem.
ENHANCED TASTE AND SMELL
When you finally stub your last cigarette out, you will start to realise the following after:
20 minutes - Your heart rate will begin to drop back to a steady level.
24 hours - Your heart will begin to repair itself (though you may feel anxious)
48 hours – Your sense and taste and smell will be starting to return and nerve endings begin to repair!
The health benefits of being smoke-free include improved lung function and people who quit smoking are often surprised by how quickly their senses of taste and smell improve. When you smoke cigarettes, many of the 4,000 chemicals and toxins can damage your taste buds. When you switch to vaping, you eliminate up to 99% of these toxins and your taste buds and your other olfactory functions start getting back to normal!
So, nicotine replacement therapy switching to e-cigarettes may help you enjoy your food that much more!
At three days, breathing starts to become less laboured. After a week, various smoking triggers may have you craving cigarettes. If you can make it two weeks, there is a good chance you'll succeed! After a month or so, quitters should see a reduction in aggression linked with quitting smoking!
REDUCED RISK OF ALZHEIMER'S
Research has shown that people who smoke a traditional cigarette are at an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. The rate of mental health decline is up to five times faster in smokers than non-smokers due to the clotting and artery damage caused by the use cigarettes. Many of the chemicals and tar in cigarettes have been found to damage arteries and reduce blood flow.
As e-cigarettes do not cause damage to the arteries, the risk of brain related injuries or disease should be reduced. In fact, there are medical studies that the use of nicotine is being used to help people with Dementia and other neurological related diseases.
YOUR VOICE COULD BECOME CLEARER
Smoking cigarettes can cause you to have a raspy or hoarse voice which could lead to you obtaining vocal cord damage, dryness or inflammation. These changes can be reversible, however, and can lead to a drastic change in your voice/tone once you quit smoking.

SWITCHING TO VAPING IS SURPRISINGLY EASY
Some people believe that vaping is complicated. For some of the larger vape devices like a box mod or sub ohm vape kits, these can be overly complicated to use due to the many different parts, power settings and refilling.
However, many cigalikes and pod vape kits are designed to be super easy to use. With pre-filled refills and pods and rechargeable batteries, many of these smaller devices are "plug and play". Many of our customers at SMOKO are not overly technical and are in their 80's. Yet they have been able to successfully quit smoking and switch to e-cigarettes within a few short minutes.
BUYING E-CIGARETTES IS QUICK AND EASY
With the growing popularity of vaping in the UK, you can buy electronic cigarettes in most grocery and convenience stores, petrol stations, specialist vape shops and online. However, finding the right e-cigarette that will help you to quit smoking will depend on the quality of the vape devices and the e-liquids.
Many of the brands that are available on the high street rely on Chinese-made flavours and ingredients in their e-liquids. This may be ok for some people, but if you are looking for an authentic tasting vape that give you a great throat hit, then SMOKO is the right choice. All of our flavours and ingredients we use in our e-liquids are Made in the UK, making them some of the best vape kits on the market.
