Whilst there is quite a lot of conflicting information out there about electronic cigarettes and people tend to have mixed opinions about them, so many people use these devices on a daily basis. It is becoming increasingly common for smokers to turn to an e-cigarette when they’re wanting to stop using traditional tobacco and they really can be a brilliant alternative to help you curb your nicotine cravings.
When using any type of e-cigarette or vape device for the first time, is it fair to say that things will be slightly different to smoking a tobacco cigarette and it can sometimes take a while to get used to. If you’re wanting to kick-start your vaping journey but you’re apprehensive about doing so and you’re not really sure where to even start, below we have put together a list of dos and don’ts that may come in handy.
DO buy a quality device
Understandably, when you’re using an e-cigarette for the first time, you might not want to spend much on the device in case you don’t like it, but it is still important to buy a quality device. Not all starter vape kits are expensive, take the Aramax vape pen, for example, and when you invest in a good brand, you will have an all-around better experience, so it is always worthwhile.
DO try a few different e-liquids
One of the things that people tend to like most about using an e-cigarette is that there are so many different e-liquids to choose from. However, you may need to try a few different flavours to find one that you really enjoy. Whether you start with a tobacco flavour liquid or go straight in for a fruity/sweet flavour, be willing to try a few different bottles until you find your new favourite.
DO research into nicotine strengths
Lots of smokers will use nicotine shots or nicotine salts when vaping and this will help with their cravings. Before you try using these for the first time, it is important to do some research into what nicotine strength will be right for you. Getting the nicotine strength right will help to prevent you from wanting to go back to smoking traditional cigarettes to get the hit you need.
DON’T forget to charge your device
This may seem obvious, but so many people who are new to using an e-cig will forget to charge their device as they’re not used to doing it. Different devices will have different battery lives and after a while, you will have a better idea of how frequently you need to charge your device. But, to start with, to ensure your device doesn’t run out of battery, make sure you’re charging it quite regularly.
DON’T assume that you can vape everywhere
It is a really common misconception that you’re allowed to vape inside places where you can’t smoke inside, but this isn’t actually the case. These days, many pubs, bars and restaurants won’t allow people to use electronic cigarettes inside, so make sure that you double-check an establishments’ rules before you start using your device just to be on the safe side.
DON’T give up too quickly
Swapping from tobacco cigarettes to an electronic cigarette will be really easy for some, but for others, it will be much harder. So, make sure you give yourself time to get used to vaping and don’t give up too quickly if you’re not getting the hang of things straight away. Generally speaking, the more you use your e-cigarette, the more you’ll get used to it.
