Everyone knows that quitting smoking is not an easy thing to do. While electronic cigarettes can be a major driving force to help motivate you to make the big change, they can’t do all the work for you. Technically speaking, e-cigs are not designated quit-smoking devices. They don’t treat or cure anything, and they are not designed to be a one-stop-shop for smokers who want to stop smoking. On the upside, however, what e-smokes can do for every smoker is to provide a smokeless, tar-less, tobacco-free way to have nicotine in a device that simulates a real cigarette, with tons of convenient options. And while they can surely help smokers have a cleaner, healthier way to smoke, if you are looking to quit smoking outright, here are a few pointers that can help in addition to using your e-cigarettes.

-Drink plenty of water. A minimum of 8 glasses is good, but more is even better. No matter what your lifestyle is, what kind of diet you may be on, it’s one of the healthiest and most in expensive and accessible ways to to stay healthy. Water flushes your system, it keeps your body as well as every organ hydrated. It helps to purge toxins, and it will help you feel clean on the outside. As an added vanity plus, drinking lots of water cleans you out, and will make your complexion glow. Hydrated skin looks beautiful, it’s supple, and has healthy coloring.

-Eat well. Good nutrition is the best anchor to a healthy lifestyle, regardless of what hurdles you’re trying to overcome. The old cliche never gets played out because it’s true! Highly processed foods, refined carbs, and white sugar not good for anyone, so if quitting smoking is on your agenda, quit these as well. Food can do so much to fuel your days, and eating foods that are filled with nutrition can help with the burden of quitting. One benefit that comes with quitting smoking is a renewed sense of smell and taste, so you will gain a whole new appreciation for foods of all kinds when you get to experience all aspects of them. Also on this note, consume fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants, this will help with the detox that comes with getting the smoke and tar out of your body.

-Pay attention to your habits. Keep an eye out for things that you associate with cigarettes. For instance, if you have a cup of coffee every morning with your smoke, and can’t imagine having one without the other, omit the coffee as well. Luckily, we offer cartridges in coffee flavor, since this is a very popular pairing.

While electronic cigarettes can do wonders to help you get away from ordinary cigarettes, helping you to have a healthier nicotine experience, for them to really work you have to want it! If you want to quit smoking using e-cigs as an alternative, remember to keep your nutrition in check!
