E-cigarette, 5 tips to live a happy vape
The e-cigarette is a blessing to quit smoking. At first glance a little complicated, but here are some tips to start the quest for a “happy vape” in good conditions.
Although very controversial in the media and government statements, the e-cigarette has still attracted millions of people, delighted to have succeeded in quitting tobacco without suffering. If you are tempted by the experiment, here are some basic rules that will allow you to find the “happy vape” as quickly as possible, a sine qua non-condition for completely quitting smoking.
1 – Overcome apprehensions and reassure yourself
The information is contradictory, even if it means quitting smoking, you don’t want to be trapped with another product? You are right! But instead of listening to rumours, find out for yourself. Google is your friend, there are a lot of resources on the Internet and you will quickly come across blogs, forums and even articles in the major media, which will direct you to reassuring scientific studies and advice from doctors or tobacco specialists who recommend resolutely the use of the e-cigarette to quit smoking.
Take the time to read and you will be surprised to discover that today there is a real consensus on the subject: vaping is infinitely less dangerous than tobacco, quite simply because no study today has been able to demonstrate the slightest danger under normal conditions of use.
Important: not only cultivate yourself to be more serene, but it is also essential to be able to answer the basic questions that those around you will ask you. They may be worried or sceptical, you need to know at least what to answer them.
2 – Buy good equipment by taking the time to find out before
Don’t “skip” on the expense. If you want to try the electronic cigarette correctly, you have to give yourself every chance of success, and this depends on the material. If you have friends who are vapers, ask for their advice and don’t hesitate to inquire on the Internet as well. By devoting a little time to it, you will quickly detect the most popular materials that collect the most positive opinions.
For the purchase, favour a specialized shop, again by doing preliminary research on the Internet, and try to go there at a time when it is not too crowded. Thus, the seller will be able to devote time to you to refine your choices, or even offer you tests and provide you with all the good advice for using your e-cigarette. Between the equipment, the accessories and the first liquids, a budget of 80 to 120 € is “normal” for quality.
When you are equipped, do not hesitate to register on a forum and find the discussion thread that corresponds to your equipment. This will allow you to ask questions in case of difficulty. You’ll see, that it’s very responsive, and you’ll get quick responses from other vapers who will be happy to help you…
3 – Test many liquids, go beyond tobacco
You may have smoked the same brand of cigarette for years without really caring about the taste. With the vape, you will discover the pleasure of strings of flavours. Naturally, you will be attracted to tobacco flavours, to begin with, as it is more reassuring to “replace” your cigarette. But you will discover that no liquid can restore the “burnt taste”. So do not hesitate to let yourself be tempted by more exotic flavours, even if it may seem strange to you, give it a try! You may surprise yourself to like vaping fruity tastes, sweets, cakes…
The more you enjoy it, the more the urge to smoke will go away. Many vapers can no longer touch a cigarette because of the taste, which they simply find foul. To be sickened by cigarettes is a great victory!
4 – Organize yourself for the management of your equipment
The cigarette is very simple: a pack / a lighter. When you forget your cigarettes, you can even think that you will easily find someone to “tax”. It is also, and among other things, because it is not so simple, that the electronic cigarette is not successful with young people. Liquids, battery, charger, spare resistance, you will have to reinforce the strap of your bag or your handbag!
Admittedly, the hardware is getting miniaturized (see here a topic on mini box mods ), but the fact remains that it’s still bigger than the killer pack. In addition, it is necessary to monitor the load, recharge or change the battery perhaps during the day. At first, it’s stressful because you’re always afraid of forgetting something. Also afraid of breaking down and no longer being able to vape. Experienced vapers also apply a golden rule: always have the equipment in duplicate. It’s safer!
For storage, the most practical thing is to find a small pocket adapted to the volume of the equipment you are carrying around. The main thing is that you only have one “item” to take with you when you go out. Like a pack of cigarettes, it’ll just be a little bulkier. With experience, you will learn to manage to only go out with what is strictly necessary, but sufficient. Or you will equip yourself with equipment in different formats adapted to the duration of your outings.
5 – Take care of your vaping conditions
Essential: maintain your equipment well. Wash it regularly. Change the resistors often, as soon as you feel that the vape is less good. The quality of the sensations is essential for a happy vape. You must be in a condition of pleasure. Feel like vaping, rather than vaping because you can’t smoke. Once you have reached this stage, you will be free to gradually lower your nicotine level, then why not, once you have reached zero, reduce the vape, or even stop.
At the start, take the time to get used to the material and the sensations. Try to avoid continuing to smoke. If you can’t do it, set goals. Achieving vaping exclusively is the necessary object to disgust you with tobacco. As long as you remain a “vape smoker”, you will be vulnerable. It is for this reason that the tobacco industry is trying to recover the vape market with its cigalikes.
Find out how to vape, it’s different from a cigarette. We inhale more gently, we puff more often, but for less time. Feel free to drink more than usual. Be careful, some people may be intolerant to propylene glycol. This is manifested by allergic symptoms. You will realize this quickly. The solution is to try liquid 100% vegetable glycerin. If it persists, stop everything and consult a doctor or tobacco specialist who understands and knows the vape. Good news: there are more and more!
To conclude, to find the happy vape that will allow you to quit smoking, you have to take time. Whether it is to inform you about the principles, to equip yourself and manage your new daily life. This allows you to be “serene” and enjoy your new life-changing happiness: quitting that damn tobacco!
