Vaping – A beginners guide

Hey. PSST. Your there! wan buy some mufucking vaps?

 

With all the negative press vaping has been getting in the last few months I wouldn’t be surprised if that is how you expect vape retail to work. But the reality is a bit different.

I picked up my first cigarette at 16/17 and within a couple of months was up to 20 a day and i went on to smoke for about 8 odd years. By the end i was hitting maybe 60 a day some days. But my now wife asked me to quit so i did.

I tried going cold turkey, that lasted 5 minutes – I really really really really really love smoking. Love, not loved, i still love smoking, i just recognize that it will shorten my life span, plus i really really really really really really (thats +1 more) love vaping.

The reality of vaping is that studies show it is 95% healthier than tobacco cigarettes as the only ingredient in common with cigarettes is nicotine – which does not cause cancer. It’s just addictive. The only other ingredients in e-liquid are PG and VG which are not harmful to the human body. PG is basically an air purifier and VG is just vegetable extract in layman’s terms. Yes e cigarettes are harmful – just 95% less so than cigarettes which is the point. Ecigs/Vapes are less likely to kill you and they still scratch that itch.

So you want to make the switch? Great theres plenty of options out there. If you want to quit you dont need some big expensive pieve of kit.

Find your local store (a bit of google) and get yourself a 20 quid vape pen and a bottle of liquid. Ask the seller to show you how to use it.

For the first week or two your going to want to smoke – my advice, keep some smokes around.

If you know theyre there you wont get as jittery, go as long as you can without one and use the vape to bridge the gaps. Eventually there wont be anymore gaps.

  1. Thanks for this explanation. I’d heard the term before but had no idea what it meant. As another ex-smoker, my way out was nicotine gum, which I chewed for over 20 years. Yes, 20. I did manage to give up the gum for about a year once, but then stress hit big time and I made the choice to go back to the gum instead of the cancer sticks. Sadly, all that chewing did real damage to my fillings and I’ve paid for the nicotine addiction many times over.
    I can say, hand on heart, that I’ve been nicotine free for close to 2 years, but only by making the move to ordinary gum. -sigh-
    Good luck and I hope that others out there thinking of quitting will do so before it become too hard, or too expensive. 😦
