Quitting smoking isn’t easy, there’s no doubt about that. For many smokers, giving up cigarettes is a life-altering event that’s not easily achieved. But thanks to vaping, many smokers in Australia have finally stubbed out their last cigarette. For those who are ready to make the switch from smoker to vaper, there’s a new app out now by Vaper Empire that can be used to track progress. Meet the Quit Smoking Tracker App, which is available for free download on the Google Play Store.
Quitting Smoking? Track Your Progress
This new app by one of Australia’s leading premium vape brands, Vaper Empire, isn’t just for vapers, it’s for anyone who is thinking about quitting smoking. With it, keeping track of your progress couldn’t be simpler. When you’re finally ready to call it quits, install the app, load it up, and press the button to start tracking. Once you click the button, the app starts counting the hours, days, weeks, months, and years since your last cigarette. It won’t annoy you with popups or anything of the sort and it won’t hassle you in any way. It simply keeps track of your progress, allowing you to load it up and take a quick peek anytime you’re curious how long it’s been since you smoked.
No Notifications, Just Tracking
The original version of the app, version 1.0, came with push notifications. While Vaper Empire never employed this direct-to-users messaging feature, the feature was there. In the latest version, version 1.0.1, push notifications have been removed. This means that even if Vaper Empire wants to send users of the app a message, they can’t. As a result, the app is essentially hassle-free for users.
This latest version was released earlier this year on June 23, 2019.
To use the Quit Smoking Tracker App, users need to be on a device running Android OS version 4.4 or higher and have at least 7.1M of free space on their device. Those who meet the app’s requirements can download it directly from Google’s app store, which is known as the Google Play Store. It’s free to download and there are no charges directly associated with the app or its usage so there’s no need for users to worry about seeing any unexpected charges on their next phone bill.
The app can be found in the Health & Fitness section of the Google Play Store.

Reasons To Switch From Smoking To Vaping
There are many reasons for smokers to consider switching to e-cigarettes. One of the main reasons is the health benefits to smokers, which Public Health England referred to as “substantial” in their latest e-cigarette evidence review. Beyond the health benefits, there are also other reasons to make the switch, including saving money. That’s right, you could be saving money by vaping instead of smoking, which in itself should be reason enough for some smokers to put down the cigarette and pick up the vape.
Vaper Empire shared an article on their blog titled “10 Reasons To Switch From Smoking To Vaping,” which highlights just some of the reasons why smokers should migrate from smoke to vapour. In the list, they point out the fact that vaping offers many more flavour options, whereas smoking is generally limited to tobacco and menthol. With vaping, there’s a whole world of flavours to choose from, including watermelon, blueberry, cupcake, chocolate, mint, strawberry, mango, lemonade, and many others. And for those who are switching, there are a wide variety of tobacco e-liquid flavours to choose from, which offer smokers the tobacco flavour of a cigarette without the tar.
Those who switch can also say good riddance to their smoke-stained fingertips, as vaping doesn’t stain the tips of fingers like smoking does. It also doesn’t stick to fabrics such as clothing and upholstery, leaving behind a nasty stench that most would rather live without. So if you don’t like smelling like cigarettes, having them stain your fingertips and teeth, then you’ve got some reasons to seriously consider making the switch. Add potential savings in the thousands of dollars each year and you have more than enough reasons to start vaping today. If not for all of these reasons, then consider your health.
Just how much less harmful is vaping than smoking? According to Public Health England, it’s likely at least 95% less harmful. That’s huge. That alone should compel most smokers to switch, but unfortunately, not all smokers in Australia are aware of how much less harmful vaping is than smoking.
Yet another reason to make the switch is the wide range of nicotine options that vaping companies offer customers. Vaper Empire, for example, offers nicotine e-liquids and e-cigarettes that range if nicotine content from no nicotine (0mg) to high strength (24mg). They offer a number of options between these two points, making it relatively easy to control the nicotine dosage and to reduce the amount of nicotine one is using by periodically downgrading to a lower strength. For smokers who are trying to use vaping to quit smoking and to eventually quit nicotine as well, these varying concentrations of nicotine allow for just that. Start with a nicotine level that’s suitable for you and slowly work your way down to nicotine-free e-juice. Once you’ve managed that, you’re living life without nicotine.
