10 reasons to quit smoking
10 reasons to quit smoking this #Stoptober and switch to vaping instead
We don’t need to state the obvious. There really shouldn’t be anyone living in this world who doesn’t understand the risks to smoking but guess what? 6.4 million of you still do it in the UK. Wow, that’s a staggering number. Even with the smoking ban, the unsociable aspect and the price increase, double the number of people still choose to smoke in the UK as opposed to those who choose to vape.
Given that our customer base has quadrupled over the last 12 months, we are absolutely flabbergasted by this figure. But, it just means that there’s more work to do. So, unless you’re living under a rock, you will know that October is now commonly known as Stoptober and it’s a blinking brilliant time to kick the habit and pick up something better. And as our wonderful customers know, we are here to help you, every step of the way. But first, let’s look at some reasons to quit smoking. And then we’ll look at the reasons to switch to vaping.
