Vaping has taken center stage in the past few years as the healthier alternative to smoking which can still allow you to get your nicotine fix.
With more and more people switching from smoking to vaping every day, we thought we’d put together a beginner’s guide to vaping because, although it’s a simple practice, there are still some things every beginner needs to know.
If you’ve recently taken up vaping or you’re thinking of starting, our beginner’s guide should give you some pointers.
What is vaping?
‘Vaping’ refers to the act of inhaling and exhaling the vapor from an e-cigarette.
What you will need:
- A vaping starter kit
- The will to stop smoking
Vaping starter kit
If you’re just about to start vaping, you may feel overwhelmed by the number of different devices available. We recommend getting a starter kit which will provide you with everything you need to start vaping – there are plenty available on the high street or even online at shops like Cloudz Vapour.
Vape kits tend to include a device, a charger, batteries, and sometimes even a liquid. The price usually ranges from somewhere between £25- £40 for a decent starter kit but don’t be put off by the price. Although the initial cost of vaping can be pricey, it can save you hundreds or even thousands of pounds if you’re making the switch from smoking.
You e-liquid is what turns into vapor and it comes in varying levels of nicotine and PG/VG – if you’re not sure what PG and VG are, check out this informative guide.
Which level of nicotine you’ll require in your e-liquid will wholly depend on how many cigarettes you smoked per day. Many vapers who are inclined to use vaping as a way to stop using nicotine will gradually reduce the amount of nicotine in their e-liquid over time.
One of the best parts of vaping is the extent of the flavors that are on the market; you can find almost any flavor you can think of, from milk and cereal to kryptonite. With so many flavors which can satiate even the most adventurous of palates, you’ll quickly find a taste which suits you.
The will to stop smoking
Perhaps the hardest part of turning to vaping is finding the will to stop smoking – when a habit is so ingrained into our lives, it can be a real challenge to find the willpower to give it up.
However, it’s no secret that smoking is especially bad for your health and bad for your loved ones if they breathe in your smoke. It’s also a hugely expensive habit which is no doubt draining your finances, so taking the plunge by taking up vaping will be sure to save you some cash – why not treat yourself for kicking your habit?
That’s everything you need to start your vaping journey. Switching from smoking, vaping is endlessly beneficial for your lungs and your bank account so try to make the change as soon as possible.
