Stop Social Smoking & Vaping

Social smoking is still smoking and can lead to a habit that’s hard to stop. Are you ready to stop making excuses? We’re here to support you as you look to successfully put smoking or vaping behind you for good.

What is Social Smoking?

Social smoking, vaping, or hookah use, is occasional smoking that is strongly connected to social activities, such as drinking. While many social smokers don’t consider their occasional behavior harmful to their health, smoking or vaping in any amount is never safe and can lead to increased health risks, and even addiction.

Quit Making Excuses:

“I only smoke when I drink.”
“I only smoke when I’m stressed.”
“I only smoke at work.”
“I only smoke on the weekends.”
“I only vape with friends.”
“I only vape at parties.”

Does this sound familiar? If you only smoke or vape during certain social situations, you’re still a smoker or vaper – even if you don’t do it every day.

Making excuses for why and when you smoke or vape can be a slippery slope and lead to increased health risks. We understand that smoking or vaping infrequently feels less risky, but no amount of smoking or vaping is ever safe.

Know the Risks of Smoking and Vaping:

Smoking and vaping, even in small amounts or only sometimes, can be harmful to your health while also increasing your chances of becoming addicted.

Short Term Risks
  • Increased heart rate
  • Increased blood pressure
  • Slower recovery from injuries
  • Fertility issues in both females and males
  • Loss of vision, including cataracts
  • Increased risk for respiratory tract infections
  • Safety risk potential for e-cigarette lithium-ion batteries to explode
Long Term Risks
  • Increased risk of cancer
  • Increased risk of heart disease
  • Increased risk of lung disease
  • Increased risk of premature death
  • Increased risk of heart attack

Even if you’re only smoking or vaping sometimes, the effects can be just as risky to your health as a daily smoking habit. Quitting can reverse the damage that smoking has had on your health and lower your chance of dying from smoking-related disease. It’s never too late to quit.
