Quitting nicotine could be tough, so don't hesitate to consult a health professional.

The illusion

"I think it's easy to quit."

The reality

"It's certainly possible to kick nicotine addiction, although it can sometimes be tough."

Focus on quitting strategies

Focus on quitting strategies

  • Set a date to quit
  • Team up (quit with a friend)
  • Make a list of reasons you want to quit
  • Learn to recognize and avoid situations that may tempt you to vape
  • Focus on healthy habits (eating well, exercising, sleeping, sketching, playing music...)
  • Celebrate your success
  • Don't get discouraged
  • Be kind to yourself (you may not always get it right the first time)

Focus on the withdrawal symptoms

  • Dizziness and tremors
  • Headaches
  • Anxiety and irritability
  • Nervousness and restlessness
  • Difficulty concentrating and sleeping
  • Increased appetite
  • Mild depression or sadness
  • Nicotine cravings

If you still don't feel the effects of nicotine withdrawal, you may not have long to wait. Usually, nicotine leaves your body on the third day, which is when withdrawal symptoms are at their worst. Most withdrawal symptoms occur within the first week. Symptoms usually disappear after two to four weeks. Cravings, however, may last longer.

Focus on perseverance

Be kind to yourself — things may not work out the way you want, so don't hesitate to ask for help. In the meantime, remember your wins — it will help you to keep going.
