Health & Quitting

Switch to vaping this stoptober and save some serious cash

We all need something to aim for, so whether you’re looking to quit smoking yourself or support someone you love in giving up, Stoptober is a great time to get the support you need. Now in its tenth year Stoptober has driven over 2.3 million quit attempts, with 8% of those saying they were still not smoking after 4 weeks.

The UK currently leads the world in tobacco harm reduction and Public Health England has long been an advocate of the role vaping has to play in helping smokers to quit, having published numerous reports on its effectiveness (the latest in February 2021).


Making the switch to vaping not only reduces your risk of stroke or heart attack, it can also save you money. Not just a few pennies here and there, we’re talking potential savings of thousands of pounds a year.

According to NHS research, financial gain is the second most popular reason for quitting (after wanting to live a bit longer, obviously). But there are still some that say that the cost of a 20-a-day habit will never be enough of an incentive to quit smoking – that the pull of nicotine is too hard to resist.

Switching to vaping needn’t mean giving up nicotine for good. You can still get that “hit” without all the tar, carbon monoxide and other nasties you ingest every time you smoke by choosing the right nicotine flavoured e-liquids. Then over time you can gradually wean yourself off nicotine and experiment with lots of different and exciting flavours instead.

But if you’re still on the fence about making the switch, we’ve crunched some numbers for you. We’ve picked out some of our most popular devices and a selection from our extensive nicotine e-liquids range and created a like-for-like comparison on cost vs traditional cigarettes. Our calculations also take into account the initial cost of a vaping device and include replacement spare parts.

For example, if you currently smoke up to 10 cigarettes a day, that’s probably costing you around £1825 per year. Pick up our Uwell Caliburn device and a year’s supply of 5MG Nic Salt e-liquids, and you could save £1054. That’s a nice holiday, a new smartphone or some rainy-day money.

Or, if you’re currently on a 20-a-day habit you’re probably spending about £7,300 per year. Grab yourself our Voopoo Vinci Pod, stock up on 20MG Nic Salt e-liquids and pocket £5433 over the course of the next 12 months. That’s a new car or even a serious savings buffer.


Right now when you buy one of a selected range of devices* from us and at least one 10MG nicotine salt e-liquid, we’ll throw in two additional 10MG salts for FREE. That’s on top of our 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee where we replace any e-liquid from the Dispergo brand for free. What better way to start your journey towards better health, longer life, and a fatter bank balance?

We support Stoptober and are happy to answer any questions you may have about making the switch to vaping. Give us a call or explore our online store for more information.*Devices included in the Free Nic Salt offer:
