Vaping, for some, is the better way to smoke. You don’t have to worry about smelling like cigarettes, you don’t really have to go outside to do it (with the exceptions of some public places), and it definitely tastes better than tobacco. Vaping is also somewhat easier on the lungs.
If you want to quit cigarettes, or are just interested in the vape scene, there are some useful tips you should know before you start. The more you know before, the better prepared you can be for vaping. It can actually be a very pleasurable experience.

1.Vaping is not like smoking.
If you’re using a vape in order to kick your cigarette habit, know that those two things can be very different. Vaping is going to be a different experience in that it doesn’t have the same taste or feeling of a cigarette, but that can actually be a positive thing. Plus, you won’t have to worry about keeping a lighter on you or the disposal of butts.

2.Be prepared to buy equipment.
While you won’t need to keep lighters, matches, or endlessly pay for packs of cigarettes once you take up vaping, you will have to keep extra equipment for your vape at the ready. For example, you’ll want to make sure that your vape has enough “juice” and even extra juice for when it runs out. You’ll also have to have an automizer and a charger depending on the model you choose.

3.There are so many options.
Speaking of vape models, there are so many on the market nowadays, that you’ll want to do your research when it comes to choosing a model. There are also differences in e-cigs and vapes themselves. This decision hinges on what kind of experience you want from your vape. This should be one of the first things you consider when you’re considering taking up vaping -- just ask your Vaping Advisor.

4.Your batteries and cartridge amounts depend on how much you smoke.
If you already know you’re a heavy smoker or see that you’re using cartridges and batteries at a super-fast rate, then you’ll want to prepare for that type of usage. If you find yourself not wanting to have to replace these items as much, then you should consider how often you’re vaping and if that’s the right decision for you. Try to track how much you’re smoking so you’re aware of what you need to stock up on as well as how much vaping you do on a regular basis.

5.Keep your costs down.
While vaping can actually be cheaper than smoking cigarettes in the long run, you’ll need to plan ahead and be cost-efficient when it comes to restocking batteries, chargers, juice, and cartridges. This can also be something that comes down to the model you choose to vape with.

6.Inhaling is a bit different.
Know that inhaling from a vape is going to be different from a cigarette, but it can be better!
