10 Tips For Switching From Cigarettes To Vapes

Posted by Victor Johnson on

Switch from Cigarettes to Vaping

Switching from smoking cigarettes to vaping vapes can be difficult for some. These tips on how to make the switch from smoker to vaper are here for those who are considering switching or who are already trying to make the switch.

Tip 1 - Get An Easy To Use Vape

Starting off with a complicated vape is probably not ideal for new vapers who are trying to switch over from smoking. This is why you should consider buying a vape that's easy to use and easy to maintain. Some vape manufacturers make easy to use vapes that are operated with a single button or without any buttons at all.

Cig-a-like vapes are designed to look like cigarettes. Some smokers find them preferable for this reason. They're also generally very easy to use, consisting of no buttons and instead of using a system that auto-detects usage with a flow sensor and activates vapor production accordingly.

Vape mods are typically the more complicated of the different vape types to use. While many experienced vapers swear by them, first-time vapers may find it easier to use vapes like vape pens and cig-a-likes to be a better fit.

Tip 2 - Keep Your Vape Handy

Don't get caught without your vape if you're trying to switch from smoking to vaping. Not having your vape with you could result in you smoking a cigarette instead of using your vape. Making sure your vape is easily accessible at all times may help you use it instead of picking up a cigarette instead. For this reason, you may want to consider buying more than one vape.

Consider leaving a vape in your car with a corresponding car charger to keep your vape's battery charged. You may also want to leave one in your bedroom on a nightstand as well as near your couch or wherever it is you find yourself often. This way, you always have a vape handy when you're craving nicotine.

Tip 3 - Buy More Than One Vape

Having more than one vape may be helpful for some smokers who are trying to make the switch. When you have only one vape, you may face a time when your battery is not charged, and you don't have the ability to vape without first charging it. If you have more than one, you can use one while another is charging, creating a cycle in which you always have a vape ready when you need it.

You may opt to buy a vape for home use and another for when you're out. Home use vapes can be bigger than those used outside of the home, as portability is not as much of a concern. On that note, you may want to make sure you have a highly portable vape like a cig-a-like that you can easily carry with you when you're out.

Tip 4 - Travel With A Spare Vape

Having a spare vape with you when you're traveling can be handy as there's a chance your vape's battery may run out of power at a time when you cannot easily recharge it. Consider carrying a spare with you at all times so that you can vape when you need to, even if one if your vapes are out of battery power and in need of a recharge.

You may also want to consider buying and carrying a portable charging case or a portable charging station. A charging case will hold your vape while recharging it, whereas a charging station will serve as a power source that you can plug your vape's charger into in order to recharge. Essentially, both serve the same function; however, vape charging cases are designed with the specific intent of storing your vape while charging it.

It's worth noting that you should always use the appropriate charger when charging your vape. The charger that came with your vape should be the right charger. If you need a spare or replacement, be sure to contact your vape's manufacturer.

Tip 5 - Carry Extra E-Liquid

Running out of e-liquid is just as bad, if not worse, than running out of battery power. If you don't have any e-liquid, you have nothing to vape. This is why you should always make sure to carry extra e-liquid in case you need it.

If you have a pod vape, be sure to carry extra pods with you. If you have a refillable vape, such as one with a refillable tank or refillable cartridge, be sure to carry an extra e-liquid bottle or two wherever you go. This way, you always have e-liquid when you need it.

Tip 6 - Find A Flavor That Works

There are a lot of e-juice flavors on today's market, but that doesn't mean you will like all of them. This is why you should investigate what options are available and find some flavors that you truly enjoy.

Some former smokers prefer to use tobacco and menthol-flavored e-liquids as it reminds them of the cigarettes that they used to smoke. While this works for some smokers who are switching to vaping, there are many other options for new vapers to choose from. There are fruit flavors, dessert flavors, drink flavors, and so on. Finding some good flavors can make vaping that much more appealing, which may help some smokers transition to vaping.

Tip 7 - Choose The Right Nicotine Level

Consider your nicotine options when buying e-liquid. You have many options to choose from, ranging from low to high. If you smoke a lot of cigarettes, you may find that the lower nicotine strength e-liquids don't quite cut it for you. If this is the case, consider trying a higher nicotine strength e-liquid.

There are many guides on how to choose the right strength out there, although they may not provide you with the answer that you seek. If you're trying to figure out which strength is best for you, you may also want to consider the make, model, and style of the vape that you are or will be using as the vape itself can affect the vapor that is produced.

If you don't get enough nicotine from vaping to curb your craving, it may be time to consider using a higher strength e-liquid.

Tip 8 - Stay Away From Smokers

For some, smoking is social. While this isn't always the case, some smokers tend to smoke more when they're around other smokers. If this sounds like you, you may find benefit in staying away from smokers while you're trying to make the switch.

This does not mean that you need to abandon your smoking friends and family, but it may be helpful in your quest to switch to vaping if you temporarily limit your encounters with smokers until you're confident that you have successfully made the transition from smoker to vaper.

Tip 9 - Get A Nice Vape That Works Well

Not all vapes work well. That is the sad reality that vapers have to deal with. If you're looking for a new vape or perhaps your first vape, it may help to see what others have to say. There are many vape reviews online with insight into how different vapes work and how well they work. Consulting these reviews may be helpful when it comes time to buy a new vape.

A vape that works poorly may turn some smokers off to the idea of vaping. Making sure you're using a nice vape that works well may very well help you stick with vaping, which is reason enough to make a point to get a good vape.

As noted in the third tip, it may be helpful to buy more than one vape.

Tip 10 - Learn How To Use Your Vape

Not knowing how to use your vape certainly won't help you make the switch. This is why you should learn how to use your vape. One way to do this is to consult with your vape's manufacturer. Another way is to read guides and tutorials that explain how to use it. In some cases, there may be tips on how to make the most of your vape floating around on the internet.

If your vape requires maintenance, learn what the maintenance process is. If it's coil replacement, then learn how to replace the coil. If it's cleaning the tank, then learn how to clean the tank. Whatever it is, make sure you know how to do it.
