Information about quitting smoking
What happens in your body when you stop smoking tobacco cigarettes
There is a lot to talk about the many benefits people enjoy when they make the shift from smoking regular tobacco cigarettes to starting to use an e-cig or vape as it is also called. Tobacco use is roughly the same across Europe. In Sweden, about 1.2 million tobacco cigarettes are smoked and about 100,000 Swedes fall ill each year with diseases that are linked to tobacco use. This at the same time as 90% of all smokers have tried, or considered quitting smoking. However, we are aware that it is difficult to quit smoking. That is why we have developed our range so that the threshold for a tobacco-free life will be as light as possible. A little further down in this text, you will find some information about the positive benefits that come with quitting smoking. If you have questions about quitting smoking, need help with substitutes or have other thoughts, you are welcome to contact our support or go to one of our stores and you will receive personal help!
After 8 hours
As early as 8 hours after you stop smoking, your body will begin to improve. In fact, within these first hours, the first noticeable effect of quitting smoking is no longer: the amount of oxygen in your blood begins to return to normal levels, even if you are already using an e-cig. This is possible because the steam produced by our e-cigs does not contain any carbon monoxide, which is found in tobacco cigarettes. This allows your body to start detoxifying the carbon monoxide that you have stored in your body so that you can enjoy a greater amount of oxygen in your blood, which means you will feel better in many other ways as well.
After 24 hours
Within 24 hours after you stop smoking and start using an e-cig, your body will have got rid of the rest of the carbon monoxide in your system. However, your lungs will also be detoxified as they work to remove toxic debris and mucus that has accumulated while you smoke. This is possible because you are no longer inhaling toxins and adding what is already in your body, so it has a chance to finally begin to heal and purify itself. And this is possible because the vapor produced by our electronic cigarettes does not contain the toxins that cigarette smoke contains.
After 48 hours
After 48 hours have passed, your body will continue to thank you for switching to an e-cigarette and get rid of your your tobacco habit. You will probably notice around this time that your taste has improved, so food and drink will be even more fun than they have been since you started smoking. In addition, your sense of smell will become stronger, so you will notice more odors you missed while smoking. This is all possible because your body will be able to start repairing the receptors in your mouth and your nose that have been damaged due to the toxins in the cigarettes you smoked.
After 72 hours
After all the incredible improvements in your body for 48 hours, it should come as no surprise that your body becomes even stronger within three days. Many who switch to vaping notice that their breathing has already begun to show improvement by this time. Breathing is easier than it was while smoking because you are no longer exposed to the tar that was clogged and irritating your bronchial tubes. As these tubes become relaxed and clear, previous smokers notice that their energy levels increase and breathing is less difficult.
3 to 9 months
If you stay away from tobacco cigarettes and continue to use e-cigarettes for 3 to 9 months, you should notice that wheezing, coughing and shallow breathing have decreased severely or are completely gone. These changes are also due to the fact that lung function has been able to be improved, as the body has been able to clear away the dangerous debris that had accumulated during smoking.
Let us now look at the long-term effects of quitting smoking. In five years, the risk of heart attack has decreased by about half. The longer you go without smoking, the lower your risk and if you have vaped, you do not have to worry that steam produced by e cig does not cause damage to your heart cells.
Within 10 years, the risk of lung cancer will decrease by about half of what it was while smoking. Again, this is because the vapor e cig produces does not contain all the chemicals found in a tobacco cigarette. Your risk of heart attack is also reduced to about the same as for someone who has never smoked. If you continue to use nicotine-containing e-liquid, you can be sure that the effects of nicotine in the heart are similar to those caused by caffeine.
The longer you remove tobacco cigarettes, the more you will notice that your health improves. Your body will thank you for quitting and the risk of a number of diseases will be dramatically reduced. In addition, the people around you will no longer be exposed to the harmful smoke that you used to produce with your tobacco cigarettes. We avoid all fimps in nature! which is better for the environment and looks nicer.
