Switching to ecigs is like anything else - piece of cake for some, a nightmare for others. But there are few ways of making it a little bit less challenging. Let's take a look at them:

1. Choose the right e-cigarette.

Do a research on best e-cigarette options for beginners. It is recommended to start with a simple eGo battery as a new vaper and upgrade only once you are used to inhaling the vapour.  Also, choose the brand carefully - it is very important to choose those e-cigarettes that have been certified because not all f them have the desired qualities. Poor quality e-cigarettes can really put you off and that may mean going back to smoking again.

2. Choose the right eLiquid.

Again - do your research before buying the ejuice. Some of the eLiquid brands might be cheaper than the others but let me tell you one thing: in this case, the quality comes with price. Always make sure the ingredients are clearly displayed on the label (Propylene Glycol, Vegetable Glycerin, nicotine and flavourings). And treat yourself to few different flavours - supposing you don't like one of them you always vape on the others.

3. Always have a back up!

eGo batteries tend to die unexpectedly - remember to always have a fully charged spare around you. Same with the ejuice, always have another bottle ready to use if you run out! 

4. Easy on the nicotine level.

Juice manufacturers make a variety of nicotine levels to cater to their customer’s needs.  Ranging from no nicotine all the way to 24, 36 or even 42mg/ml depending on the vendor. There are two things to keep in mind when choosing a nic level. One is that nicotine isn’t absorbed the same way or at the same rate as it is with smoking.  It takes 35 minutes of vaping 18mg/ml juice to get the same nic level in your bloodstream as it would be for one cigarette, which can be smoked in five.  Some new vapers have noted that 18mg is sufficient to stop the cravings. In  my own experience, I needed no less than 18mg in the beginning. 

5. Hide your cigarettes.

It might be hard to toss out your cigs when you get your first vape setup, in fact you may not even want to. If you aren’t comfortable throwing them out, don’t.  Trying to quit is hard enough without the added stress of thinking there’s no turning back. At the same time, you don’t want to keep your cigarettes close enough to just grab one and light it up anytime you have the urge. Smoking is called a habit for a reason, there is a certain degree of subconscious desire to reach over to that familiar pack and puff away.  Hide them from yourself.  Put them in the trunk of your car, in your garage, anywhere where they’re still accessible, just not convenient.  When it comes down to digging them out or using your much more handy vape, you’ll find yourself making the better choice more times that not.
