Vaping has become the trend for most of the youth around the world this has significantly made them so addicted and not even considering the
effect of the substance that they are consuming.

Most of the vapes contain nicotine which is very addictive and the
more you consume this, you brain and body starts getting used to
having nicotine , the hard it is to stop using it and so this means
that when you want to quit you will have nicotine withdrawal
symptoms. Going without vaping leads to the nicotine level in your
bloodstream to drop, and this may cause unpleasant feelings, physical
symptoms, and strong urges to vape. This is what many may call
nicotine addiction.

Now the biggest problem comes when one want to completely quick vaping

persist and hold on.

Some of the ways to stay vape free is, talk to your doctor about you
wanting to quit vape. Be sure to ask how they can help you manage
your withdrawal symptoms. Drinking allot of water throughout the day.
Because it can help you ease the nicotine withdrawal symptoms such as
headaches, sweating, hunger, and fatigue. Drinking water can also
help reduce cravings. When quitting, it is very common to feel tired

priority. Have a consistent sleep schedule and practice good sleep
habits turn off screens at least an hour before bed, and don’t
sleep with your phone in your bedroom. Getting exercise during the
