Getting Used To Vaping

If you are making the switch from traditional cigarettes to the world of vaping, first of all we would like to congratulate you. You may feel apprehensive about the options available to you but we are here to help you along the way.

There are a couple steps you will be taking in the near future that we would like to walk you through.

Step 1: Choosing the right system
It will boil down to personal preference but if you are just starting out and still not sure if vaping is for you, if you are nervous that you won’t get the nicotine your body is use to, if you don’t know if vaping will fit your lifestyle, then we would recommend getting one of our disposable barfly’s first, before you invest in a kit. The barfly is a great option for those just starting out. You get to taste some of the flavors we offer while not spending a lot. If you use the coupon code ‘TRYBARFLY”, you can get your barfly for just $10 PLUS Free Shipping! Once you are sure you want to invest in an alternative to traditional smoking, we recommend one of our Premium Starter Kits. The Premium Starter Kits come with everything you will need to get started, including a car charger for on-the-go vaping!

Step 2: Getting Use To E-Cigs
You’ve purchased your e-cig and now you need to learn how to use it. Each kit comes with a manual but there is more to it than just reading. It is now time to fit the e-cig into your lifestyle: When you need to charge the batteries, how often, getting use to the weight of the e-cig, etc. If you find yourself with a dead battery half way through work, you may want to purchase a PCC (Portable Charging Case). It may take some time to get in a rhythm, but we assure you, it is worth it!

Step 3: Getting Use To Vaping in Public
This may seem like a no brainer if you have ben a smoker for years, but many places now have banned “Smoking” in public places and not everyone has heard of e-cigs. You may experience looks and whispers but often times those whispers turn into full conversations about how cool the e-cig is! It is always best to check with the establishment you are at before vaping, but in our experiences and experiences of our customers who have written us, most business owners welcome the use of e-cigs. It is best to be aware that others may not understand and be ready to defend your new ways, especially since most e-cigs do resemble a traditional cigarette.

So what does the savvy vaper do if someone approaches, assuming you are smoking and endangering them and their loved ones with second hand smoke? You stab them with the end of the battery as if putting out your “cigarette” on their arm and watch them freak out until they realize it is just a light. JUST KIDDING! :P

1. Apologize for upsetting the accuser, then say, “This isn’t a cigarette, it doesn’t produce any smoke or smell.. it’s just water vapor”. Once the accuser is (hopefully) diffused, you can tell them that what they’re looking at is an electric cigarette (e-cig) and that it has awesome benefits such as:
- no tar
- no smoke
- no smell
- no flame
- no ash

2. Tell your story. If you have been a smoker for years, let people know just how much better you feel, how much cleaner your house (and breath) is, and how you have overcome such a bad habit. You have made the switch to an alternative and it is time others know as well.

3. The vapor appears only when you take a puff, unlike the smoke that continuously comes from a lit cigarette. Also, it doesn’t travel more than a couple of feet and it dissipates almost immediately so it won’t (shouldn’t) bother anyone nearby. There is little to no smell and NOTHING like traditional cigarettes! If anything there is a sweet smell in the air from the flavored cartomizers, like grape.

4. Explain that smoking e-cigarettes in public helps to create product awareness. Subsequently, others may be encouraged to quit smoking a much more dangerous product, tobacco cigarettes.

Until there are enough “vapers” out there to tip the scales, making e-smoking proper social behavior, its likely “vapers” will have to tolerate a few ugly stares. A few may even be scolded in public. But take heart, there’s safety in numbers, so spread the word about e-cigs being a better alternative to smoking. Give our suggestions a try and enjoy the freedom of “vaping” in non-smoking areas.
