Quit Smoking in 2021 - The Best Vape Set-Ups for Ex-Smokers

The decision to quit smoking is one of the best you can make. And there’s no better time than the start of a new year - especially a year that has followed on from 2020! Make it your resolution for 2021 to quit smoking for good with the help of Vape Simple. 

Quitting smoking can lengthen your life, decrease the risk of developing many serious diseases, decrease the risk to your family and those around, and make you look much healthier on the outside. 


Why You Should Use Vaping to Help You Quit

Vaping is a form of nicotine replacement. This means it helps to satisfy your nicotine addiction cravings but without all of the harmful chemicals and toxins that you get from smoking a cigarette. 

Other forms of nicotine replacement include nicotine gum, patches, and inhalers. However, a major clinical trial by the NHS found that vaping was twice as effective than these other methods. People are far less likely to go back to smoking if they are using a vape. 

We think that this is because vaping closely mimics the feeling of smoking. In this next step, we will explain how you can get the perfect vaping set-up to make it feel as close to smoking a cigarette as possible. 


The Best E-Cigarette for Ex-Smokers

When you’re starting out, you want to use something that’s pretty straightforward and easy to use. You don’t want to be spending loads of time just trying to figure out all of the different settings and features of your device. 

At the same time, you want something that is good quality and powerful enough to give you the satisfaction you need. My best recommendation would be the following: 

Aspire PockeX Kit AIO

This is one of the best-selling devices at Vape Simple - people love it and for good reason. The Aspire PockeX Starter Kit is a compact all-in-one vape device, perfect for any current smoker looking to make the switch. 

The sleek, compact, cylindrical design gives this vape a nice, natural feel when you’re holding it. It’s not clunky and in-your-face like some other e-cigarettes you see! 

My personal favourite thing about the Aspire PockeX is that it’s super easy and simple to maintain and use. It’s leak-resistant meaning there’s no need for annoying mess and clean up. Plus, the coil is very straightforward and simple to replace, again, free of mess and leakage. 

Lastly, the PockeX will last a full day on one charge. This means you can simply charge it up in the evening (which doesn’t take long at all) and it will be ready for the full following day. 


The Best E-Liquid for Ex-Smokers 

When it comes to e-liquids, you want to choose something with a VG/PG ratio of 50/50. This is because these e-liquids work best with the smaller, less powerful devices. The equivalent ratio of VG and PG will give you a good balance of flavour, throat hit, and vapour delivery. Plus, they usually come in 10ml bottles which means they will already contain nicotine (bottles larger than 10ml are not allowed to contain nicotine in the UK). My top recommendations would be the following:


Solt e-liquids are made using nicotine salts. This basically means that you can enjoy enhanced flavours and powerful delivery that replicates the feeling of a real cigarette more closely. Nicotine salts are found in the tobacco leaf, meaning this is the same type of nicotine you get when you smoke. It provides a softer, smoother throat hit than regular e-liquids. 

The Solt range has a vast variety of delicious core flavours that you can check out here. These are available in 10mg or 20mg salt nicotine strengths.

Simple Essentials

Simple Essentials is one of the most popular brands at Vape Simple. It has an extremely wide range of incredible core flavours. This extensive collection of simple, no-fuss, high-quality flavours caters to all different tastes. These are available in nicotine strengths 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg. 

The best part is you can get the Aspire PockeX Kit and 3 Simple Essentials e-liquids of your choice as part of a starter bundle. This means you save money, and you’ve got everything you need to quit smoking!
