Transition from Smoking to Vaping with Blu

Wednesday, 3 October 2018

Like most who want to ditch smoking for good, you've probably heard of all the amazing success stories of smokers who take one sweet vaporised puff and never look back. We don't want to discourage you, but people like that are few and far between.

If you've tried vaping before just to realise it can in no way compete with your regular tobacco cigarettes, you're not alone. What most people fail to tell you is that going from smoking to vaping is not an instant decision, but a process that demands time, dedication and, most of all; a solid plan.

Girl Vaping

It's best to start with vaping products that are most similar to the real thing, and slowly phase tobacco out of your life. Blu have a proposition for every stage of your journey.

Stage One

If you're a heavy smoker, smoking at least 25 cigarettes a day, it's important to start with products that offer a strong and quick nicotine fix. Blu have the perfect solution for this initial stage of your journey.

Device: Simple/Closed

MyBlu Starter Kit

MyBlu Starter Kit includes everything you need to get you started. The MyBlu e-cigarette is a simple yet practical device, designed to be as convenient as possible, providing you with flavoursome vapes whether at home or out and about. Its battery lasts all day, and takes just 20 minutes to recharge between uses.

Nicotine Level: High to Medium-High Level

When you're used to smoking tobacco cigarettes, your body demands a quick nicotine fix that ordinary e-liquids are not able to deliver. This is why Blu have come up with nicotine salts that are absorbed into your bloodstream at a much faster rate than other vaping products.

Flavour Preference: Tobacco, Menthol and Refreshing Fruits

If you've never vaped before, we recommend you stay away from strong and sometimes overwhelming sweet flavours when you're just starting out. The MyBlu Device is compatible with a broad range of e-liquids, both regular and made with nic salt. Here are some of our favourites for new vapers:

MyBlu Intense Tobacco

MyBlu Intense Tobacco is made with nicotine salts for quick absorption and tastes just like tobacco, which makes it ideal if you're just starting to cut down on cigarettes and are looking for a good replacement. It's available in 18mg nicotine strength, which is a great place to start when transitioning.

MyBlu Intense Menthol

MyBlu Intense Menthol is also made with nic salts, but offers a slightly fresher flavour. Available in 18mg nicotine strength, this is the perfect choice for newbies who are looking for a simple yet refreshing starting point.

MyBlu Intense Strawberry Mint

MyBlu Intense Strawberry Mint is made with nic salts and available in 18mg nicotine strength, but takes things to a whole new level in terms of flavour. This is the perfect starting point when you're ready to start moving towards more interesting flavours.

MyBlu Intense Blueberry

MyBlu Intense Blueberry is a great choice for those who are ready to say goodbye to classic tobacco and menthol flavours that are so often associated with smoking. While still offering a quick fix with nic salts and 18mg nicotine strength, Intense Blueberry is a classic fruity flavour.

MyBlu Tobacco

MyBlu Tobacco is the next logical step once you've been vaping for a while. Classic MyBly Liquidpods are not made with nic salt, but are still available with very high levels of nicotine, offering the perfect bridge to Stage Two. If you're already past tobacco flavour, other MyBlu Flavours include Mango, Menthol, Green Apple, Blue Ice and Cherry Crush.

Stage Two

Once you feel ready to take the next step, you should consider upgrading your vaping device and cutting back on nicotine. Blu's extensive range has you covered with just the right choice of products.

Device: Open

Blu Pro Kit

BluPro E-Cigarette Kit delivers smooth and consistent vapour to provide exceptionally high-quality flavour. The top-filling clearomiser makes refills quick and easy, while the long-lasting battery enables you to go longer between charges.

Nicotine Level: Medium Level

Once you've been vaping for a while, it might be time to start cutting down on your nicotine consumption as well. We recommend you slowly transition from 18mg to 16mg, and finally to no more than 8mg of nicotine.

Flavour Preference: Menthol to Fruity

As you're going for lower levels of nicotine, the choice of available e-liquid flavours broadens significantly. If you still crave the taste of tobacco, you can stick with BluPro Tobacco for a while, but we recommend having more fun with one of the following flavours:

Stage Three

When you've made it this far, especially if you've managed to cut down on smoking cigarettes along the way, your work is practically done. At this point, you should be well-used to vaping and ready to explore all the wonderful things the world of vaping has to offer.
