Many smokers think transitioning to vaping is as easy as picking an electronic cigarette and sticking it in your mouth for a quick nicotine fix. Contrary to popular belief, transitioning to vaping is not easy. You have to be prepared to avoid frustrations and going back to conventional tobacco cigarettes.
Below are a few tips on how to easily transition from smoking to vaping.
- Do not go for complicated e-cigarettes
Currently, vaping is seen as trendy and edgy. As such new vapers will purchase complicated e-cigarettes to look cool in front of their fellow vapers.
Do not be tempted to show off your devices as this may frustrate you if you do not know how to use them.
If you are sure about vaping, go for a SMOK starter kit; something that is easy to use and yet provide maximum benefits. An electronic cigarette with a fancy tank and other accessories will happen further down the line once you have learned the basics of vaping.
- Try different flavors
The flavor is everything in e-cigarettes. Nicotine content of the e-liquid will not matter if you do not like the flavor.
E-liquids come in almost every flavor you might think of. There are fruity and minty flavors as well as desert and original tobacco flavors. The type of flavor you choose will depend on your preference. As such, it is best to try different flavors before settling for the ones you like.
To effectively do this, sample a variety of flavors from your vaper friends. Go to your local store and try different flavors. You could, also, buy flavors you are not sure of in small quantities to ensure you do not waste money.
- Get involved in what is going on in the vaping community
Social media is a very powerful tool; especially in this digital era. Follow vaping social media sites across all platforms. This will not only make you feel part of something but will, also, ensure you get the best advice in terms of flavors and other vaping devices.
- Get the right nicotine strength
E-liquids come in different strengths. However, many transitioning smokers will have a problem getting the right nicotine strength. Vaping on an e-liquid that has high nicotine content, especially if you are not used to it, will result in headaches and nausea.
On the other hand, vaping on an e-liquid that is of lower nicotine strength will not satisfy your nicotine cravings tempting you to go back to conventional tobacco cigarettes.
- Do not buy cheap devices
There is a certain excitement that comes with transforming into vaping. As such, smokers may be tempted to pick the first vaping device they set their eyes on.
The importance of buying quality vaping devices cannot be over-emphasized. A substandard device will give you a bad vaping experience increasing your likelihood of going back to traditional cigarettes.
- Do not vape non-stop
Electronic cigarettes do not run out like traditional tobacco cigarettes. Avoid sitting idly vaping for long periods. This will result in nicotine overdose triggering nausea, vomiting, and other unpleasant symptoms.
