You may need to take a break from unsupportive people when you first quit. Let them know that you need to make quitting vaping your priority right now. Recommit to quitting. Remind yourself why you are quitting and why being vape-free is important to you. Ask them to respect your decision. Not everyone will know how to be supportive, and that’s okay. Ask them not to vape around you or offer you to use their vape. Lean on positive people. Spend time with people who make you feel good about your decision and who want you to quit
