The Switch from Traditional Smoking to E-Cigarettes
Making a successful switch from smoking to vaping can be challenging. It’s no secret quitting smoking is hard, and many smokers fail several times before they can manage to ditch the habit. If you’re ready to make the switch from analogue to digital, there are a few ways you can make the transition a little easier on yourself.
Test out a range of flavours
The best thing about vaping is that you're spoiled for choice when it comes to your flavour options. Instead of tobacco and menthol, you now have a wide range of flavours to suck on. From toffee custard and strawberry cheesecake to the more obscure mermaid’s milk and island elixir, you will have no problem finding a delicious vape flavour that tickles your fancy.
Don’t get hung up on the look
Vapes don’t look like cigarettes. Some people have trouble quitting cigarettes and then when they switch to vaping, they have trouble keeping it up because of how different the apparatus looks. While you can get ‘cigalike’ vapes that look just like cigarettes, they aren’t always the best quality. And the reality is that while they look like cigarettes, they will not provide you with the same experience you crave.
Start out using both
Quitting cigarettes cold turkey can send your cravings into overdrive. One way to ensure you don’t go back to the cigarettes right away is to vape alongside smoking cigarettes. Try swapping some cigarette breaks with vape breaks and continue swapping more and more until you can eliminate smoking cigarettes completely. This can take a few weeks or a few months, but it’s best to work at your own pace so one day, you can ditch the cigs for good.
Vape in moderation
That being said, do your best to vape in moderation. It can be easy to get carried away with vaping. Instead of going outside and lighting up, all you have to do is press a button. Try setting time for when you can vape and be patient when trying different liquids and equipment until you find a combination that works well for you.
It’s tempting to buy the cheapest vape you can get your hands on, but if you buy something that provides you with a bad experience, you are more likely to go back to smoking – which is why you’re here in the first place. While shelling out $200 on a starter kit may seem a bit excessive, it is 100% worth the money. First of all, cigarettes are a much more expensive habit than vaping, and buying a more expensive kit means better quality vaping and overall, a better experience.
Get involved in the vaping community
Being a vaper is so much more than that. You are now part of an exclusive community of people going through exactly what you’re experiencing. There are thousands of pages on social media that provide a community for those who love vaping. Take advantage of this, ask questions, learn new things and speak to people who are actively trying to quit cigarettes too. It can make the process a lot easier knowing you aren’t alone.
