VApril 2021 is here! If you don’t already know, April is vaping awareness month, and with it comes the annual UK VApril campaign. This nationwide campaign aims to provide expert advice and give support to smokers who are struggling to quit. However, the campaign is also seen as a great opportunity for vapers with a successful quitting smoking story to speak up and inspire others. 

The fundamental purpose of VApril is to inform as many people as possible about the detrimental health effects of smoking, and why switching to vaping can be a life-transforming decision. As quoted on, a recent poll from 2,000 people found that 72% of smokers who were aware of the campaign said that they were influenced to make the switch from smoking to vaping.

Many UK based online vaping stores including are joining in on VApril to help move this campaign forward. To further help those on their quest to quit smoking, they’ve provided a perfect starting point: a practical switch from smoking to vaping guide! What more could a new vaper ask for? 

In this guide, you’ll be able to find an eye-opening timeline of what happens after a person quits smoking, as well as an interactive tool to give smokers a reality check on how cigarettes are impacting their health, finances, mental wellbeing, and even their lifespan. Plus, have lined up a collection of hand-selected beginner vape kits to get you or a loved one on the right track to quitting smoking. 

Educating your loved ones about the health consequences of smoking can often be the first step on their quitting journey, and it may even help to spark further conversation among their friends or other family members who smoke.  The fact of the matter is, many people feel ashamed about their smoking habits, or even confused about how to start using smoking cessation tools like vaping. During VApril, vapers can use their knowledge to confidently start these discussions with loved ones, and help to clear up any misconceptions or concerns they have about transitioning to vaping. 

It’s important to be aware that the health effects of smoking don’t stop with the person who directly inhales harmful chemicals from cigarettes. Unfortunately, people (and even pets) who live with heavy smokers can inadvertently breathe in or digest toxins from second-hand and third-hand smoke, putting them at a high risk of developing a number of serious diseases. In helping a smoker quit and start their journey to a healthier version of themselves, you can feel proud in knowing that you have changed the course of their life, and the health of those around them, for the better. 

Remember, many smokers can be influenced by those around them, such as parents, siblings, and even friends. By spreading awareness of cigarette’s damaging effects on our health, the more likely it becomes that non-smokers, including younger people, can be deterred from taking up smoking themselves in later life. 

Quitting smoking is often not a linear process. However, with the right tools, including support, informative guides, and effective cessation methods like e-cigarettes, the chances of stopping and leading a healthier, happier (and maybe even longer) life can be significantly increased.
