As an important key date within the public health calendar, VApril by the UK Vaping Industry Association (UKVIA) has come round once more. Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus still present it is once again difficult to commit to the event even if it is more vital than ever.
Here at Royal Flush Vape we fully back VApril as a time to provide further insight into the vaping industry and to help those who would normally continue smoking move to a healthier lifestyle with vaping as a safer alternative.
Royal Flush Vape are proudly partnered with UKVIA to ensure that we can continue providing excellent customer service and continue being a leading responsible retailer. Our UKVIA partnership allows us to receive regulatory updates which in turn provides help and support to maintain our high standards.
What is VApril?
Moving into its fourth consecutive year, VApril is now established as the largest international campaign to help smokers successfully switch to vaping which is recognised as being at least 95% less harmful than smoking by Public Health England (PHE) and fully backed by the National Health Service (NHS).
The core focus of VApril falls in line with the ethos at Royal Flush Vape, to provide specialist advice and support to help you make the right decision about vaping, to ensure your switch from smoking is successful and stress free.
In addition, the VApril campaign provides you with facts on vaping to help you make your own informed decision. As highlighted by Public Health England, misinformation on vaping prevents smokers from switching to a healthier lifestyle with vaping and both Royal Flush Vape and UKVIA are here to change that and help smokers switch!
Importance of VApril
Unfortunately, there’s still a large deal of false information preventing smokers to quit through vaping. As highlighted by the Action on Smoking and Health (ASH):
"Vaping has helped many thousands of smokers quit to date. But many thousands more could benefit if they were not put off by the persistent, worsening and inaccurate beliefs the public hold about vaping."
It’s important to highlight information throughout VApril that debunks false information and raises further awareness to the health benefits of vaping when compared to smoking, alongside the success rates on quitting smoking when utilising vaping as a way to quit entirety.
"Within England last year, nicotine vaping products were highlighted as the most popular aid in helping smokers quit"
With over 3 million former smokers now vaping and a recent One Poll highlighting that 72% of 2,000 smokers had switched to vaping with the help of the VApril campaign. It doesn’t matter if you're a first-time vaper or if you’ve never given vaping the chance, there’s such a wide range of advice available to help you make the switch to vaping to help you quit smoking for good.
With 27.2% of smokers using a vaping product compared to the 18.2% who utilised nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) products (such as nicotine patches) with just 4.4% using prescribed medicine varenicline.
“It is estimated that in 2017, more than 50,000 smokers stopped smoking with the aid of a vaping product who would otherwise have carried on smoking.”
