Hey, this your first time? Don’t worry, we’ll go slow - the climb to Vape Mountain’s peak is steep, but it’s where the best clouds are! Don’t worry if your first steps into vaping seem to be mainly coughing, cursing and more coughing, vaping is a cloudy business and one that is unique even from regular cigarette smoking. Just remember, vaping is something you’re supposed to enjoy, not force yourself to learn, so take your time and keep in mind all the great flavours you can reward yourself with once you get over the learning curve!
The Artful Vaper
The way you vape can affect your enjoyment, or success in the early stages, in fact most vapers admit that their introduction to vaping was less baptism of fire and more coughing fit of clouds, so you're not alone! Unlike smoking a regular ‘analogue’ cigarette, which can be inhaled in short puffs for quick ‘lung hits’, vapour should be inhaled slowly from your vape-pen, with each inhalation lasting around 5 seconds compared to the much shorter time needed for tobacco. Here are some top tips to make sure you’re vaping right:
Pick Your Poison
Being aware of what you're putting in your tank is key to getting the best vaping experience, Vegetable Glycerine (or VG) e-juices produce more vapour than Propylene Glycol (PG), so higher PG content liquids might be a good starting point if you're getting overwhelmed by vapour. If you're graduating to vape pen from e-cigarette then you should be warned that you'll be getting more vapour bang for your buck than in neat 'cigalike' products.
Nicotine levels are also important, picking a level that is too high can lead to coughing and too strong a hit for your tastes, too weak and you’re sure to just feel disappointed. For tobacco smokers, nicotine levels of your e-liquid should be matched to your smoking habits:
For vapers who have never smoked, zero is the recommended dose – no reason to become addicted to nicotine to enjoy vaping!
Practise Makes Perfect
