THE BEST E-CIGARETTE AND VAPE KITS TO HELP YOU STOP SMOKING IN 2024
You have been smoking for a while now. Maybe you are starting to think about quitting. Or maybe you have tried to quit smoking a few times in the past but find yourself back in the same habit. Or maybe you are getting fed up with the price of cigarettes and want to do something about it.
So it’s now time to quit! If you have been looking at the best way to quit smoking, you have probably been looking at e-cigarettes and vape kits to help you on your journey. No doubt you would have seen there is a huge amount of choice out there, from cigalikes to box mods.
The most important thing to remember is that all of the medical and health organizations in the UK now advocate e-cigarettes as one of the most effective ways to quit smoking. The British Medical Association, Royal College of Physicians, Cancer Research UK and Royal College of Midwives all agree that quitting smoking is the most important decision someone can make. If you can’t quit using traditional methods, switching to an e-cigarette is much better than continuing to smoke cigarettes. Public Health England (PHE) recently re-stated that “e-cigarettes are at least 95% less harmful than traditional cigarettes”.
Finding a vape starter kit or e-cigarette starter kit to help you quit smoking is an amazing step towards living smoke-free!
It can feel a bit daunting when you first decide to make the switch from smoking cigarettes to switching to vaping for the first time. There are a lot of e-cigarettes to choose from and there is an incredible amount of information out there about how to vape, which is the best e-cigarette kit to use and how to use a vape to help you to quit smoking.
HOW DO VAPE KITS WORK?
There is a lot of e-cigarette and vape kits to choose from, but all vaping devices essentially work the same. They all contain a battery and an electronic device called an atomizer which vapourizes a nicotine flavoured e-liquid into a smoke-like vapour. This allows you to still get the nicotine your body craves while maintaining a realistic smoking sensation.
E-Cigarette Kits all contain the same components – a rechargeable battery, the device - either a refill (sometimes referred to as a cartomizer or cartridge) that has a heating device called a coil built in or a tank which has a replaceable coil, and an e-liquid which contains flavouring and nicotine. With some e-cigarettes (closed systems) when you draw on the end, the battery is activated which heats up the coil and then vapourizes the e-liquid into a form which you inhale – very similar to a cigarettes. With some vape kits, you may need to press a button to activate the battery to start the vapourizing process.
It may sound complicated and a very futuristic feat of engineering but in reality, the science of vaping is really simple.
Beyond this, there are some slight variations with different vape and e-cigarette kits as to whether you have to add the e-liquid yourself or if it comes pre-filled, whether the battery has a default power setting or if you can adjust it yourself. The easiest to use e-cigarettes are commonly referred to as “closed” systems and the e-liquid is pre-filled in the refill making it hassle-free.
DOES VAPING HELP YOU QUIT SMOKING?
Quitting smoking can be a very different journey for everyone, especially heavy smokers. For the lucky ones, they can just decide to stop smoking and that’s it, they have quit. No more cravings, no withdrawals, nothing! However, for most of us, quitting smoking can be one of the most challenging things we can do.
Will e-cigarettes help me quit smoking? Unfortunately there is no magic bullet but e-cigarettes have helped over 3m adult smokers in the UK to finally kick the habit! There has been some amazing results that have been published by the leading medical and health groups that now suggest that vaping is the leading and most successful means of quitting smoking.
According to the NHS Stop Smoking Service “using a vaping product as part of a quit attempt in local stop smoking services had some of the highest quit success rates – between 59.7% and 74% in 2019 and 2020”.
According to Cancer Research UK “e-cigarettes help people quit smoking”.
Over the last 10 years, SMOKO has helped thousands of people from around the world to quit and they are happily living smoke-free! So if you have tried other methods to try and quit smoking but have not succeeded as of yet, with the help of a vape kit and some will power, you may be able to quit for good!
HOW CAN I LIMIT NICOTINE CRAVINGS WHEN USING A VAPE KIT TO STOP SMOKING?
When you are starting to quit smoking using an e-cigarette, one of the most important considerations is selecting the right nicotine strength in your vape. Getting this right will mean your e-cigarette will help to deliver a similar amount of nicotine compared to the cigarettes you are using, thereby helping to satisfy your cravings.
Most vape and e-cigarettes have a selection of nicotine levels available in either the pre-filled e-cigarette refills or e-liquids. Finding the right nicotine strength may take a bit of trial and error, but once you find the correct strength, it should be smooth sailing.
There is a tendency for some people to select a low strength of nicotine when they are first using a vape kit to help them to quit. They may believe that if they start out on a low level straight away, it will be easier to quit completely. Unfortunately, if your nicotine level is too low, you may still feel the need to reach for a cigarette.
We always suggest starting with the highest strength nicotine refills with your e-cigarette starter kit to get used to using a vape instead of a cigarette. Some people take to vaping like a duck to water. For others, it may be a short transition period of using they new e-cigarette starter kit while they slowly reduce the number of cigarettes they smoke every day. Whatever approach works to help you reduce and eventually eliminate your desire to smoke a cigarette is the right approach.
E-Cigarettes are designed to not only mimic the look and feel of a cigarette but also to helps to satisfy the other major triggers that cause you to smoke. From the physical hand-to-mouth action, the neurological stimulation from nicotine, the satisfaction of inhaling the smoke and the release of an exhale, vaping has been designed to deliver a realistic smoking sensation. All of these factors combined are what makes e-cigarettes such a successful tool to help people to quit smoking
IS VAPING SAFER THAN SMOKING CIGARETTES?
Public Health England, Cancer Research UK, ASH and the Royal College of Physicians all say that vaping is safer than smoking traditional cigarettes.
Recent studies from Public Health England state that “e-cigarettes are at least 95% less harmful that traditional cigarettes”.
Even the Royal College of Midwives suggest in their Support to Quit Smoking in Pregnancy Position Statement that “If a pregnant woman who has been smoking chooses to use an e-cigarette (vaping) and it helps her to quit smoking and stay smokefree, she should be supported to do so”.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF E-CIGARETTES?
Generally speaking, there are two different styles of e-cigarettes that you might use to help you quit smoking – Closed E-Cigarettes or Open Tanks systems. Both styles essentially mimic the sensation of smoking by delivering a flavoured nicotine vapour that you can inhale like a cigarette.
Closed systems – also referred to as cig-a-likes or pod systems, look more like a cigarette, are designed to be incredibly easy to use, require no messy refilling or replacement of coils as the e-liquid comes pre-filled and are usually the first vape that people use when they start quitting smoking with an e-cigarette.
Open vape mod systems can require a bit more work and maintenance as you need to refill the e-liquid yourself and you will have to replace the various components on a regular basis. For many people who have been vaping for a while, they may choose to move to an open system.
While many think that open systems are cheaper to use because e-liquids can be less expensive that refills or pods, the initial cost of an open system and the ongoing cost of replacing the components can add up, sometimes to be more expensive than a closed system. For many smokers, the simplicity of a cigalike or closed system far outweighs any perceived cost savings.
Here at SMOKO, our E-Cigarette and VAPE closed systems both deliver a realistic smoking sensation, are easy to use and are filled with our authentic tasting e-liquids that are all Made in the UK.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE BEST E-CIGARETTE TO QUIT SMOKING?
Choosing the right vape kit really depends on a number of factors. Some of most important things to consider are how much you currently smoke, do you like a strong hit and where you plan on using your vape.
Depending on how much you smoke will determine whether the E-Cigarette or VAPE POD starter kit is best for you. For a lighter smoker (under 20 a day), the E-Cigarette will deliver a great smoking experience that should satisfy your cravings. If you tend to smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day, you may want to use the SMOKO VAPE POD as it has a slightly more powerful battery which delivers a stronger smoking experience.
Also the choice of nicotine strength in your e-cigarette or vape refills can help you find the right experience for you. A lighter smoker may look to use one of our lower strengths while a heavier smoker will want to choose a higher nicotine strength. Our E-Cigarette, VAPE and VAPE Pod refills come in a range of strengths from 2.0%, 1.8%, 1.5%, 1.1% and 0%.
The same applies if you are after a stronger throat hit. The SMOKO VAPE POD kit will be more suitable for a heavier smoker due to the extra power that the battery delivers. But also choosing a higher strength nicotine level will be most suitable for a heavier smoker.
And finally, if you are on the go all day long, both the E-Cigarette and the VAPE starter kit would be great solutions, but if you use the E-Cigarette, it is also a good idea to keep an extra rechargeable vape battery and refill with you in case your current one runs out.
With both of the designs, they deliver a truly realistic smoking sensation, are small and discreet, super easy to use and incredibly satisfying.
