VApril 2022 - Make the Switch To Vaping
April is an important month for smokers and vapers alike, as VApril is in full swing to support more people than ever in making the switch to vaping. This annual event has been helping people for 5 years running by providing essential guidance and expert advice to motivate them to stub out the cigs and quit smoking for good.
We know that giving up smoking isn’t an easy feat, but taking advantage of support and tools available from campaigns such as VApril and transitioning to vaping can be a step in the right direction towards a healthier lifestyle. But don’t just take our word for it— studies show that 72% of smokers who knew about VApril stated the campaign influenced their decision to switch to vaping.
If you’re interested in quitting smoking and giving vaping a try, now is a great time to start. In this blog, we’ll dive into the ins and outs of the VApril campaign, how it works and how it can support you along your quit smoking journey to help you kick the habit for good.
What is VApril?
VApril is a campaign spearheaded by The United Kingdom Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA) that sets aside the month of April as a time for vaping awareness. First launched back in 2018, it has since gone on to establish itself as the world’s largest campaign to help smokers successfully make the transition to vaping.
Beginning on the 1st of April every year, the UKVIA—along with a number of healthcare organisations— works to raise awareness on how the use of an e-cigarette can help people quit smoking. After Public Health England recently revealed that e-cigarettes are 95% less harmful than cigarettes, more people than ever are considering switching to vaping. Aimed at both current vapers and smokers alike, they provide free online support and information as a tool that’s easily accessible to everyone.
This month-long movement aims to promote awareness and exchange ideas about how to reduce cigarette smoking around the world. By focusing on this, the UKVIA hopes to dispel this misinformation surrounding vaping by providing a wealth of information about the many varieties of e-cigarettes and e-liquids and how they can be used as a successful smoking cessation aid.
Their website contains a variety of tools, including expert guidance, FAQs, and assistance in locating local vaping stores.
Can VApril help me Quit Smoking?
The VApril campaign focuses on 3 key aspects in order to help people quit their smoking habit and make the healthier transition to vaping: Awareness, Planning, and Advice.
As a means of spreading awareness to consumers, VApril has launched a Speak Up for Vaping campaign where current vapers are encouraged to share their story on how and why they made the switch. As Public Health England recently revealed that 40% of smokers have reported never having tried vaping, the team at VApril think it’s more important than ever to spread the word and use the power of combined voices to inspire others to make the change.
To support you along your quit smoking journey, VApril has supplied a completely free and downloadable online 5-step plan. Made with the help of UKVIA and health experts, the Switch on to Vaping Plan offers a step by step breakdown of how to make the switch; including where to start, how to find the right device for you, and what nicotine strength is most suitable.
Last but certainly not least, the VApril website offers an extensive Expert Advice section where health and vaping experts come together to answer the most commonly asked questions beginner vapers may have. So, whether you have concerns surrounding vape safety, are curious about how the devices work or want to know more about what flavours are available, the experts over at VApril have got you covered.
