Create an ‘Accountability Journal’ to Conquer Your Vaping Habit for Good

Are you determined to make this the year you break free from vaping? An accountability journal can be a powerful tool to help you stick to your commitment and achieve your goal.

What Is an Accountability Journal?

Writing down goals significantly increases the likelihood of achieving them, according to a study by Dominican University in California, which found that 76% of participants who wrote down their goals were either successful or halfway to achieving them by the study’s end. An accountability journal is your personal, empowering way to put your vape-free goals on paper, making them more tangible and achievable.

How to Create Your Accountability Journal

Start by choosing a notebook that feels inspiring. Visit a bookstore or craft store and select one that resonates with you. Once you have your journal, begin by positively stating your goal on the first page. For example: “I will reduce my vaping sessions from 10 to 5 in the next 3 months.”

On the next page, list everyone you’re quitting for, including yourself, to remind you of your motivation.

Then, detail how your life will improve once you're vape-free. This could include health benefits, financial savings, or improved relationships.

Next, create an action plan. This should include resources and people who can support you in your journey. For those seeking an alternative to vaping, consider nicotine replacement therapies, like patches or gum. These products can help manage cravings as you transition away from vaping. The Mayo Clinic reports that only about 5% of people who attempt to quit vaping without assistance succeed, while those using cessation aids have a much higher success rate.

Consider incorporating a product like the NicodermCQ patch into your plan. It delivers nicotine to help curb cravings and, when combined with behavioral support, can significantly boost your chances of success.

Finally, use the remaining pages of your journal as a daily diary. Be honest with yourself about your progress, noting both the ups and downs. Document your emotional journey, the challenges, and the victories. This diary will be a powerful tool to reflect on your progress and maintain motivation.


Using your accountability journal, you’ll have a constant companion and reminder of why you’re quitting, helping to strengthen your resolve on tough days and filling you with pride as you look back on your journey to a vape-free life.
