Going on adventures with the family.

Traveling is something not many people can do. One of the many reasons why some people don’t travel is money. Traveling can be costly especially when you do it with the whole family. Can you imagine in my case, I travel with my father, my siblings, and, most of the time, with my extended family, uncles, aunts, and cousins. If going out-of-town or out of the country by yourself can be costly, can you imagine how much it would cost for me and my family to travel?

trip

But there is a way to do something when you really want to. My siblings and I would save up for our travel budget. Our goal is to go an adventure with the family at least once in a year. We normally travel in the months of January to April, during the summer months, that is. We have May to September to save up. We would book flights, accommodations, and everything else come October until November. Everything will be ready on December. All we have to do is wait for the day of our travel to arrive.

A friend of mine who also travels with her family, partner and daughters, has a different take on it. Travel whenever, wherever. Just go whenever they feel like escaping the city and go wherever their budget could take them. Works for them all the time.

adventure

Of course, there are so many ways to go on adventures even on a small budget. Camping, picnics, and so many others. You and your family can stay with relatives or friends to save on accommodations. You can bring your own food to eat while on the road. You can choose one specific activity to do rather than a host of it to cut down on costs.

Just make sure you go on an adventure at least once a year or once every two years with the whole family. That’s my advice to you. It will not only bring the family closer but it will also create a multitude of memories you can always look back on when you all grow older.

9 Essential Tips When Flying with Children

You’ve probably heard about or had to live through the horror of getting stuck beside a screaming baby on a long-haul flight. Bored and angry toddlers can easily create havoc for parents and surrounding passengers alike. That is aside from the problems that parents have trying to keep up with their kids on top of all the logistics of flying. However, with the proper preparation, there are some things you and your family can do to make sure that your traveling experience goes as smoothly as possible. Here are nine essential tips for when flying with children.

Plan on Providing Entertainment for Your Children

Don’t expect your kids to sleep on the flight. You can ask for the kids to visit the cockpit, but you may not be allowed to do so. So for your own sanity and that of everyone else around you, bring multiple activities for your children. You can bring a tablet or eBook reader, but realize that they may get bored with it, break it, or the batteries may run out at some point. For that reason, you should bring backup entertainment options like coloring books and crayons, sticker books, story books, cards and stuffed animals. For younger children, bring at least one favorite blanket for them to hold on to.

Bring Snacks for Your Children

Let’s be honest – your kid may not be able or willing to eat the fancy lunch they’re serving on the flight. You might not want to trust them with the roast beef and green beans, or they may be allergic to the main course. Bringing snacks that they like ensures they won’t go hungry. They may not be happy when told dinner won’t be served for another hour or all of the sandwiches that they like may have been eaten by the time the stewardess gets to you, so having food they like ensures they won’t melt down because they’re hungry.

Plan Toilet Stops

Plan to make regular toilet stops, and then make extra stops when you’re going to be in line. This means you should go to the toilet right before boarding the plane. Give your kids limited liquids while on the flight so they don’t have to go to the toilet every five minutes.

Go for Early Boarding

Take advantage of early boarding if you can. It is easier to get your children and your luggage in place when there are fewer people in the aisle. This is the time you’ll be able to get assistance, if you need it. You may not even have to pay extra for the privilege. If the airline asks whether those with small children or otherwise need assistance boarding, speak up. Then see if you can get someone else to get the stroller and three carry-on bags in the overhead bin.

Invest in Rolling Car Seats

One of the simplest ways to save your sanity when traveling with young children is investing in an airline-approved car seat that rolls. Now you don’t have to juggle several suitcases and car seats. The ideal model will let a sleeping or busy toddler sleep in the car seat as you pull them along.

Connect with Other Parents

Whenever possible, connect with other parents on the flight. You could strike up conversations with them about their kids and yours, and your kids could entertain themselves by talking to their new best friends. It certainly doesn’t hurt if you can get spare diapers or tips from another parent. However, this doesn’t get you out of your responsibility to pack enough wet wipes, pull ups and diapers for your children.

Be Ready to Talk to a Flight Attendant

If you have a child under two, you should be ready to talk to a flight attendant when you board. They need to know if you’re going to have the child sitting in your lap during the flight. Knowing the rules on asking for a bottled to be warmed or how to handle diapers in advance helps you avoid potential disasters, because you cannot put them in the toilet. Don’t forget to ask how to hold the baby during takeoff and landing.

Prepare Them for Pressure Changes

Children will complain about their ears popping when you’re on a flight. Discuss this in advance, and know how they can alleviate it. Hint – that’s by yawning or chewing gum. If the children are old enough, bring gum on the flight so you have it on hand. For babies and toddlers, give them pacifiers or a bottle to have the same effect.

Know Your Rights

There is a chance that your flight will get cancelled. Make sure that you know your rights regarding flight cancellation compensation before you leave so you’ll know the procedure in case something happens. Services like AirHelp can get you several hundred dollars back that you could otherwise leave on the table. You should also know about the travel perks that may come with your credit card or travel rewards program, such as immediate cash payment if they lose your luggage for instance.

Follow these tips, and you’ll avoid many of the mistakes that make others regret traveling with their children. Furthermore, you will all be in a better mood when you reach your destination, ready to enjoy whatever awaits.

How to live your life debt free

Do you spend a large amount of your time worrying about money? Are you overwhelmed by the stresses and strains of daily life? Would you do anything to enjoy a more relaxing and straightforward existence? If your answer to any of these questions is yes, you should set yourself the challenge of becoming debt free. Don’t worry; achieving this goal is much easier than you would first think! If you are wondering how to make the first move, you should simply work your way through the following four steps. They will help you to turn your life around and to take complete control of your personal finances.

debt-free

Hold yourself accountable

Firstly, you will need to get a lot better at holding yourself accountable. Whenever you are wasting money, dodging bills, or stacking up debt, there needs to be a voice in your head that speaks up. You could even place your trust in a loved one and ask them to keep you on track. Perhaps you could send them your monthly bills, or maybe they could assist you with the completion of your taxes. Whatever you decide, the most important thing is that you are unable to run away from your responsibilities. If you are going to live your life debt free, it is vital that you take a stand.

Organize your finances

The next step is organizing your finances thoroughly. Instead of wasting your time rifling through a pile of receipts or a mess of bank statements, you will need to create a system for storing your financial information. You should also get to work establishing budgets for your monthly expenses, along with your annual outgoing costs. Depending on the current state of your personal finances, this could take you quite a while. However, once you have pushed through the initial stages of managing your money, you will be well on your way to a life of order and control.

Find helpful resources

Although it is essential that you take responsibility for your finances, you need to recognize the fact that you are not alone. There are so many helpful resources for you to rely on if you are struggling to wrap your head around your money problems. For instance, if you are trying to decide between personal capital or mint, you can find out everything you need to know online.

Surround yourself with positive influences

Last but not least, you should be surrounding yourself with positive influences. If you are determined to reach your goal of a debt free life, it is a good idea to spend your time in the company of people who share your outlook. It is also a good idea to keep your distance from reckless individuals who encourage you to take chances and forget about your future goals. Choosing the right friends and family members to connect with will help you to remain focused, motivated, and enthusiastic at all times. You never know, you might even inspire those around you to follow in your footsteps.

How to Make Your Rental Property Feel Like Home

There are more renters in the UK than ever before and there are also more options available to tenants who want to make their property feel like home. For both landlords and tenants, it is important that a rental property feels cosy, well-designed and homely. With the rise of generation rent, there are more and more alternatives to traditional decorating and these simple steps should help make your property feel like home. It is also essential that you and your landlord agree on the rules of the property before you start decorating. Your contract should detail what is allowed in the property, and if there are any queries, it is better to ask first.

Look at Temporary Decorations

Removable wallpaper – also known as peel and stick wallpaper – is a great option for adding some bright patterns to your rental home. This is designed with renters in mind and will leave no damage to the wall once you move. It is also a lot easier than wallpapering. Other options for decorating without damage include washi tape, removable chalkboard wallpaper, self-adhesive tiles and wall hangings. Command hooks are also a great way to hang things up in your rental property, without using nails or screws. You can also use these to hang display shelves, rails and caging, giving you extra storage space.

Find Key Pieces You Love

Though many rental properties are furnished, you can still add some furniture of your own. If space is limited it is worth looking for a few key pieces full of personality that you can take with you when your tenancy is up. Just make sure you keep hold of any fittings that came with the property, so you can return it to how it was when you leave. Interior designer Annabelle Holland told The Independent “Don’t be put off buying key pieces like art or furniture just because you’re renting. You can take these to a future home but do choose versatile items. If you’re currently renting a big loft space and want a big sofa, think about a modular sofa that can be broken up and fit into smaller spaces in your next home. Invest in lamps, or even just funky lampshades to place over the landlord’s lamps to brighten up your space”. From a bold armchair to a glitzy chandelier, you can find unique home pieces that will add loads of character to the room.

Choose a Property That Matches Your Style

This might have been difficult a few decades ago, but the demands of renters have changed the market, with rental properties now offering beautiful design and luxurious interiors. High end new developments by property companies like RW Invest feature stunning décor and designer furniture packs which make rental properties feel coordinated and stylish. There are far more types of rental property available, so it is worth looking around for one with a style you feel comfortable in.

Embrace Fabric

Fabric can be a life saver in a rental apartment, from quirky cushions to bold statement rugs. Soft furnishings are a great way to add colour and personality to a space, no matter how plain it might be. Often carpets can be an issue in rental properties so choose some bright and colourful rugs to protect the carpet or cover up previous tenants’ mistakes. Hanging curtains to divide spaces in studio apartments is another great way to make your rental apartment seem like home. You can also easily replace the curtains in a rental property.

5 Family Vacation Ideas That Work with Your Budget

Everybody enjoys a good vacation, but planning one can be quite the headache—and an expensive one at that. Not everyone can afford to fly out together to an exotic getaway, but just because you’re on a tight budget doesn’t mean you need to skip out on vacations altogether. Being smart with your money, as well as doing the right research, will help you get the most out of your budget as possible. At the end of the day, all you want is for the whole family to bond, have fun, and come home with happy memories.

Here are some budget-friendly ideas that you can use when planning your next vacation:

1. Plan a Hotel Staycation

Staycations are all the rage these days since it has all the components of what makes a great vacation, without having to travel so far away. But instead of staying in one place all day, why not switch it up a bit and use the time to explore? Choose a hotel with a strategic location, where you can experience the secrets of the metro without having to rush. Family-friendly hotels like Pinoy Pamilya Hotel in Pasay, for example, is centrally located near many historical sites and entertainment centers.

2. Go on a Road Trip

Why book a plane ticket when you can simply drive there? Packing the family into a car and setting off on an adventure is a favored vacation activity for many. You can plan a driving route that stops over in as many tourist spots as possible, pack your meals to ease up on the budget, and simply take photos as souvenirs. Another road trip option includes visiting a relative who lives far away and taking your time to get there to get the most out of your road trip.

3. Get into Sporty Activities

Shake things up and get active on your next family adventure. Go to a park or a nature reserve (you don’t even have to go far: UP Diliman has an open field to play in and the La Mesa Eco-Park has many fun activities the whole family can participate in), or you can also visit a bicycle park and rent bikes for everyone. Other activities you might want to try include hiking, swimming, kite-flying, rafting, obstacle courses, camping, rock climbing, and more. Many beach resorts even offer water sports, easily allowing you a way to spice up a regular beach trip.

4. Go on a Cultural Trip

Sometimes you don’t even need to go far to have fun. Going on a culture trip in Old Manila provides a jam-packed day of adventure on its own already: go museum hopping in the museum complex, bike through the historic walled city of Intramuros, walk through Luneta Park, catch a glorious sunset along Roxas Boulevard, then end the day on a ride at Star City. The beauty of Old Manila is that the attractions are located close to each other so you merely need to walk to each spot or hop on a jeepney to get there.

5. Go Home-Swapping

Renting an Airbnb is a perfect example of home-swapping. Budget-conscious families can go on a vacation in another region and experience life as it is lived there, as well as visit whatever attractions are nearby. This is best for families looking to go on a trip but can’t afford a fancy hotel. Home-swapping is also great since it provides a homey environment—almost replicating the thrill of just moving into a new home while providing all the comfort that home offers.

You don’t need a lot of money to have fun and make new memories with your family. With just a little creativity, as well as a dash of resourcefulness, you can go places—literally!

4 Christmas Expenses That You’ve Probably Forgotten

Christmas is a time for making great memories with your friends and family but, unfortunately, it’s also a time for spending a lot of money. There are so many things you need to buy like presents and food and if you aren’t careful, you could end up landing yourself in a sticky financial situation if you overspend. The key to keeping the Christmas budget down is preparation. If you start early and make sure that you plan ahead for those expenses, you can pay for them without too much trouble. But there are so many things to buy that you’ll inevitably forget some. These are the Christmas expenses that you probably didn’t plan for.

Hosting Guests

Hopefully, your guests have given you some notice and they’re not going to just turn up on your doorstep unannounced. But that doesn’t mean you’ve considered the financial implications of having guests over for Christmas. There are all sorts of things you need to do to prepare your home. If the spare room is a bit of state then you might need to decorate it which is going to cost you. Even if the spare room doesn’t need decorating, you still need to provide extra food for them and your utility bills will be higher if you’ve got extra people in the house. It’s important to start setting the house up for guests ahead of time so you don’t end up spending loads of money last minute.

Christmas Lights

Most people that put Christmas lights up massively underestimate the cost of it. It’s a great way to bring some Christmas cheer to your neighbors but you’re going to have to spend a lot of money on it. There’s the cost of the lights themselves and if you’re putting them all over the outside of the house, you might have to pay for Christmas light installation. It’s dangerous to get up there on a ladder on your own and start messing around with the electrics so it’s best left to the experts. Once the lights are up, you’ve also got to consider the cost of the electricity bill which is probably going to be pretty substantial if you’ve got a lot of lights up.

Batteries

Batteries are probably the most forgotten Christmas item in the entire world. Toys never come with batteries and the kids are going to be disappointed if they can’t play with their new toys. That means you’re going to need to stock up on a load of batteries and that’ll cost you more than you think.

Extra Food

For some reason, everybody seems to have an endless appetite on Christmas day. No doubt you’ve planned out what you’re going to make for the Christmas dinner but that’s only the start. People are going to want cheese and biscuits and chocolates to snack on for the rest of the night. If you get all of those little extras last minute, the cost will really add up.

Make sure that you plan ahead for these Christmas expenses so you can afford everything easily.

Dealing With Disaster on a Vacation

When you head away on vacation, you expect to let your hair down and relax for a week or two in some desirable destination overseas. You choose a convenient flight, arrange comfortable accommodation, and pack your case with swimsuits, towels, and other bits and bobs that will tide you over during the warm weather and allow you to splash about in the pool and sea or kick back on a lounger on the beach. However, it’s important to bear in mind that while the majority of vacations go swimmingly, some don’t always stick to plan. There are various things that can go wrong along the way and it’s important that you know what to do should things take a turn for the worse. Here are a few problems that you might experience while on vacation along with some advice regarding how to best deal with the situations.

Accidents

Accidents can happen anywhere and at anytime. So, it’s important that you are aware that you could experience an accident while on vacation. This is something that you should keep in the forefront of your mind when you head to countries that have less stringent health and safety laws, rules, and regulations in particular. In advance of your trip, you should take out a comprehensive travel insurance policy. Generally speaking, people tend to associate travel insurance with something that covers the cost of lost or damaged belongings while you are away. Sure, your policy should cover this. But instead, prioritise the ways in which your policy protects you individually. Travel insurance should have a high limit on the amount of money you can claim back for healthcare costs. This means that if you have to make use of medical assistance while you are away, you won’t have to worry about being in major debt once you return. Travel insurance should also cover transporting you back home should needs be. Once you are home, you should contact Robinette Legal Group’s legal services. Reliable lawyers will be able to create a case on your behalf against the individual or company who has caused your accident. You may be able to claim compensation, which will go towards any uncovered medical costs and which can replace lost earnings while you recover.

Illness

Like accidents, illness can affect you at any time without any given warning. Now, when you are heading overseas, you may find yourself exposed to all sorts of germs and bacteria that your body isn’t used to, as they may not be present or prevalent back home. This is why it’s extremely important that you have relevant immunisations and vaccinations before heading away. Generally speaking, you will be able to consult your doctor and they will be able to advise what injections you will need and how long you will have to have them before you go on vacation. You will usually need more immunisations if you will be spending time in rural areas rather than major cities. You should also ensure that you have malaria tablets and mosquito spray if you are heading to a location where malaria is a threat. Another way that you can prevent illness while away is to be particularly vigilant in regards to what food and drink you consume. Determine whether tap water is safe in your chosen destination. If not, always drink bottled water and make sure that the bottle is sealed (so you can be sure that the water is fresh and hasn’t been opened and refilled with tap water). When eating out, check whether water used in ice cubes or to wash salads is clean too. It’s always a good idea to take basic medication with you to alleviate any symptoms that you may experience.

Sunburn

Another factor that commonly causes issues for individuals on vacation is sunburn. But this can be so easily prevented! Make sure to take a high factor sunscreen with you and to apply it regularly throughout the day. Sit in the shade during particularly hot periods and wear a sunhat and sunglasses. You may also want to use cooling and calming aftersun products once you retreat to your room. If you do develop sunburn, stay out of the sun until you have recovered and consider using aloe vera gel, which can soothe the burn.

Hopefully, your vacation will go well and you won’t have to even consider disaster. Following the above steps, however, will help to prevent certain incidents from occurring in the first place and will help you to deal with any incidents that do occur as efficiently as possible!

How To Work From Home And Manage Your Personal Life

The internet, which is now a necessity for a lot of individuals and businesses, has changed the way many people earn their income. Many popular businesses allow their workers to commute part or full-time. Working from home is becoming very popular. However, the best way to get the most out of working remotely is by being dedicated to your position. In fact, the Bureau Of Labor Statistics reported that working from home has increased by 35 percent in the last year. Many people want to know if working from home is a good idea. The answer is yes.

How To Start Working From Home

Many people looking for a work from home opportunity have ran into scams or high fees for work from home leads. However, there are many legitimate work-from-home opportunities. Sites like westernshamrock.com offer great options to fund your home-based work goals. You can start your own business with resources that will help you get the most out of each workday. You can get all of the office equipment you need to meet the demands of any online job position. Choose from software, furniture, equipment and more that will successfully allow you to work from home.

How To Successfully Manage Working From Home

You can manage your personal life and work from home. To work from home, you must be able to motivate yourself. Besides, you’re the boss which comes with a few drawbacks. For example, you may work part-time, but are you willing to put in the hours? You’re working from home, but you have to commit yourself to your work-from-home position. Decide what time you’re going to work and show up on time like you would for your land-based employer. Your diligence will determine how much you earn.

It’s very important to adjust to your new work position. You should always get dressed for work and report to your home office. Your home office should not be cluttered and be a place where you can make the most of each workday. Create a home office that will have everything you need centralized in a convenient area. For example, you should have high-speed internet, office phone (never your personal device), and a highly operational PC available in your home office. More importantly, avoid distractions that can come with working from home.

How To Avoid Work From Home Distractions

    – turn off/silence your personal device
    – let others know your schedule
    – avoid watching television
    – ask not to be disturbed a certain time

Distractions are the easiest way to lose focus while working from home. If you have small children, ask to not be disturbed unless it’s an emergency. Give them an opportunity to be near your office, but not in your workspace. Plus, during your self-directed breaks, give your child an opportunity to eat lunch with you or designate time for your child to take a nap.

How To Find A Legitimate Work From Home Position

Finding a work from home position is not as hard as people think. You have the opportunity to choose from many remote working positions from your current employer. Ask your current company if they have a commute work opportunity available. Some employers have part-time work from home positions. However, your job may be glad to allow you to work from home to save money. Plus, there are many job positions that are also available online. You can search from actual positions that fit your job qualifications from many work-from-home listings.

Working from is a disciplined career position. You have to motivate yourself each day. In fact, some work-from-home positions allow you to create your own schedule. However, a few positions will give you set hours like a land-based position. If you start your own online business, you can end up working from home to save money. Working from home provides convenience for thousands of workers, but it’s not an opportunity to skimp through your work responsibilities. More importantly, you should be satisfied with your job position. Many work-from-home positions have allowed employees to gain much longer work experience.

Using E-Cigarettes to Quit Smoking – The Complete Guide

E-cigarettes are not just an alternative to smoking cigarettes or using other tobacco products. They can be used to quit smoking altogether, just like nicotine gum, inhalers, and patches. However, unless you have a clear plan of action and know how to avoid the pitfalls of many people making the transition, then you might fall right back to square one. Here is a complete guide on using e-cigarettes to quit smoking if you want to replace cigarettes with their healthier electronic counterparts.

Buy the Vaping Kit and the High Nicotine E-Liquids

The vaping kit will have everything you need to start vaping. You’re not after a complex, customisable device to experience a variety of flavours and styles. You just want a basic vaping system and accoutrements to work with for a while. Go ahead and have an extra battery or spare bottle of liquid since you don’t want to be caught without and slip into old habits, i.e. lighting up a cigarette.

What you truly need is the strongest, highest nicotine level e-liquid available. This is what you’re going to vape to satisfy the nicotine cravings, at least at the beginning. The higher nicotine level will deliver the hit your body expects without the nasty toxins, even though you may not be using the e-cigarette totally right. A good rule of thumb is to stick with the higher nicotine level for a month before taking the next step.

Dial the Nicotine Level Down

After you’ve gotten used to vaping, you should reach the point where you’re able to use the e-cigarette to replace traditional cigarettes entirely. The next step is dropping to a lower nicotine level while keeping your frequency of vaping constant. You’ll probably notice the difference, but it isn’t going to be nearly as hard as quitting smoking altogether. Fortunately, you’re maintaining the same habits, so you’re more likely to stick with the minor change than you would if you tossed your cigarettes and started buying patches and gum.

You will need to give yourself time to get used to the lower level. This may take a month. In fact, it may take a couple of months. It is OK to do so since e-cigarettes are safer than conventional ones. If you were using the high strength e-liquid, simply order the medium strength instead. If you’re looking for a wide variety of different e-liquids with different concentrations, you should consider visiting a reputable ecig store like greyhaze.co.uk to make sure you’re getting the best quality liquid possible with the right dosage.

Another strategy would be buying a vaporiser that lets you adjust the amount of nicotine you inhale over time, but this isn’t as simple as using lower dosage e-liquids. The simpler the process, the easier the transition will be.

Reduce the Concentration for a While

If you’re trying out medium strength e-liquids, you’re making progress breaking the nicotine addiction. However, you may find that it is difficult not to smoke more, while others crave an old-fashioned cigarette. There is a potential solution to this, and it is switching to a different e-liquid manufacturer. Different brands have a wider range of strengths than others. If “medium” of one brand isn’t enough, instead of switching back to the “strong” liquid you initially tried, try a medium-strong liquid that’s not as powerful as what you initially started with. You’ll partially meet your cravings without returning to the strongest stuff available. After you’re used to that, you can try stepping back down to the medium strength stuff. You can try to experiment with flavours at this point to see if it helps.

Start altering your habits by this point, too. If you tend to light up after meals or on break, try not to socialise with other smokers at this time. As you eliminate your triggers, you’ll be able to overcome them until you’re over them all.

Switch to the Lowest Level When You’re Ready

You’ll know you’re ready to switch to the lowest level e-liquid when you start leaving your e-cigarette at home and you’re OK with it. If you leave it at home and panic, finding yourself buying a disposable e-cigarette instead, then you are not ready yet. If you left the e-cigarette kit at home and went digging for the backup kit in your office drawer, you aren’t ready to step down the dosage yet. When you can wait until you get home to light up, you can try switching to a low nicotine level e-liquid. Embrace this change because it means your brain is breaking the addiction habit. If you can forget it for a while, you’re not reliant on it. Celebrate it, too, because this means you are very close to becoming a non-smoker.

Go to Zero Nicotine Liquids

Yes, there are zero-nicotine liquids available for e-cigarette users. If you’re able to go hours without lighting up, you’re loosening the hold nicotine has on you. Switch to the zero nicotine liquids. Continue using the vaping system as you have been so that you don’t have to break every habit. This lets you give in to the impulse to light up without feeding the need for nicotine. If you can’t fight the craving, only use the low nicotine level liquids. It is OK to take your time here since this increases the odds you’ll give it up for good. And since vaping is so much safer than cigarettes, it isn’t like taking your time is adversely impacting your health.

In fact, a study released by Public Health England in 2015 found vaping to be, at a minimum, 95% safer than smoking. This is why the UK has endorsed vaping as a smoking cessation aid.

Intentionally Leave the E-cigarette Behind

This is the final step in becoming a non-smoker. If you’re still stuck on the nicotine and you weren’t able to stick to a non-nicotine alternative, try to leave your device at home if you can.

Leave the e-cigarette at home during the day and try to go all day without it. You can choose not to pack it in your purse or bag when you leave in the morning. You can try to go on a weekend trip without the e-cigarette and nicotine-laced liquids. See how long you can go without lighting up. The day you realise you haven’t lit up in ages is the day you’re officially nicotine free. You’ll enjoy all of the health benefits and improvements in your overall quality of life when you do.

In fact, setting aside the e-cigarette for a day or weekend will let you experience these benefits and give you a reason to not give in to the urge to pull any kind of cigarette out of your drawer. When you find that you haven’t had to light up for a while, then you’ll be able to use e-cigarettes for the pure pleasure of it and not because you’re craving the nicotine. From this point on, you’ll have officially kicked your nicotine addiction and can truly consider yourself a non-smoker.

Conclusion

E-cigarettes are a good way to break your nicotine addiction. Once that’s done, you can put away your vaping device and enjoy life as a non-smoker.
