If you have decided to make the switch from cigarettes to vaping we have some excellent tips and tricks to help you kick the habit once and for all. This guide coupled with the knowledge of your favourite local or online vape shop should provide a smooth transition from expensive cigarettes to a cleaner, fresher world of vaping.

Remember that managing an addiction is a troublesome task and is not going to happen overnight, but if at first you don’t succeed don’t be scared to try again your health and your wallet will thank you.

How do i find a flavour that’s right for me?

With the sheer volume of tasty and exotic vape liquids available it is worth taking your time to find the one that you find best.

This process is very simpleand affordable, low cost 10ml bottles of vape fluid provide an effective sample size for a great price.

It is normally acknowledged that when first moving from cigarettes to vapes that a tobacco flavour is likely to be the most satisfying for your cravings.

7 Day Trial Period

In our experience when making the switch to a vape device it is best to use nothing but your vape for 7 days.

Use your vape each time you have a craving just as you would a cigarette. After this 7 day period the tar coating your lungs, throat and tongue begins to disappear. During this time you may cough up some tar, this is nothing to worry about and simply the bodies way of trying to remove the toxin.

 

Still Have Some Tobacco Products? – Keep Them

We all know cigarettes are expensive, the worst thing you can do is throw away all of your smoking products just in case vaping doesn’t work for you.

It is also rumoured that actually having tobacco products reduces the craving by simply knowing they are there.

There is never a more necessary time to have a cigarette than when you have just run out, so i feel that rumour makes sense.

 

 Finding The Right Device For You

With thousands of different mods, batteries, tanks, and coil choices available (more on those later) it is very easy to feel lost in a sea of devices.

Don’t just choose a device based on style, find the one that works right for you. DTL or direct to lung vapes are well suited to a transitioning smoker as they operate in much the same way as a cigarette does by inhaling straight to your lungs.

This may not be the same for you, however a huge range of low cost vapes are available allowing you to find the style that works just right for you without breaking the bank. (more…)

Newspapers have to sell.

In a story published on 3rd February from the Irish Mirror, they claim that a study by the New York University of Medicine Research shows that vaping is shown as having a link to carcinogenic issues, linking vaping to cancer.

They quote “But some experts are now warning they should not be seen as a completely safe option, and are concerned about their popularity among the young, Dublin Live reports.

A new study found mice exposed to e-cigarette smoke had higher levels of DNA damage in the heart, lungs and bladder.”

The problem with news reports such as this is that it gives the impression that vaping is on a par of being as dangerous as smoking. This is absolutely ludicrous. The official guidance from the UK Government indicates vaping is 95% safer than smoking and news reports like this don’t show like for like.

Is there some element of risk associated with vaping, aside from not smoking. Well possibly so, but the articles are being intentionally misleading to stoke up reaction, create confusion and most importantly sell newspapers and generate web traffic.

We live in a world where traction counts. News stories count. If there is a way to sensationalise and report news out of content, it is usually done. The problem here is people’s lives are at stake. Vaping helps smokers stop smoking. That is a fact.

It is the responsibility of vaping advocates such as ourselves to try and call bullshit when poor news stories such as these are reported. The damage caused by conflicting information is stopping smokers making the switch due to the confusion caused.

If you are a non smoker, and want to vape, I wouldn’t put you off, but there are minor health disadvantages. Much in the same way as eating red meat or working in a more stressful industry has minor health disadvantages.

But if you are smoking, and want to stop smelling of smoke, want to see your grandkids grow up, and want to save thousands of pounds a year, give it a go, make the switch and don’t look back.
