Swap to Stop

If you are looking for help to stop smoking, the Swap to Stop project can help you. Using a vape along with other support is one of the most successful ways to stop smoking.

When you sign up, you can swap your regular cigarettes for a free vape starter pack consisting of a device, charger and 12 weeks of vape refills. You also get help, advice and support for 12 weeks from the Your Health Oldham team.

How stopping smoking for good helps you

Health

If you smoke, stopping is the single greatest thing you can do to improve your health. Within a month, you will:

  • boost your immune system
  • have lower blood pressure
  • find it easier to breathe
  • be able to be more active
  • improve your sense of taste and smell

Within a year, the risk of heart disease will have halved. Within 5 years, the risk of stroke can be the same as a non-smoker.

Money

If you smoke 20 cigarettes a day (and a pack costs £15) you could save more than £400 a month by switching to vapes with support from Your Health Oldham.

Why Swapping Helps You Stop

Getting specialist help, advice and support while vaping increases your chances of stopping for good.

Vaping also provides similar taste and throat sensations to smoking.

If you have tried to stop smoking before, you can try again. Every time you try to stop smoking takes you closer to being smoke free.

Facts About Vaping

  • Vaping is much less harmful than smoking tobacco.
  • Vapes have far fewer chemicals than cigarettes.
  • If you smoke, vaping increases your chances of stopping for good.
  • Vaping is not risk-free and is not recommended for people who do not smoke or people under 18 years old.
  • When you feel ready (e.g. after a couple of months) and you want to quit vaping, Your Health Oldham can support you to do this.
