Base Camp: Where to Start with Vaping?
So you've decided to join the 2.6 million people in the UK who use e-cigarettes? Welcome to the first steps on your path towards a better life, one filled with sweet-smelling clouds and devices that look like props from 1950's science fiction films. Vaping provides you with a greater amount of choice than traditional smoking – different brands, different flavours, different style of devices – but this means that it can be a little confusing to the novice.
If you get a feeling of trepidation whenever you consider the mountain of information you think that you have to overcome, don't worry! Like the Nepalese locals who have been guiding western adventurers through the Himalayas for years, we here at Vape Mountain are here to help you with your journey across the yawning cavern that divides smoking and vaping.
Are you ready? Good, then we'll begin.

There are a few different types of e-cigarette that you can purchase and (confusingly enough) they are all, pretty interchangeably known by the following terms:
If someone told you that they were going to show you their e-cigarette, they'd be equally likely to pull out an elaborately modified device as a sleek and smooth device that looks like a traditional cigarette. So, even though you might have made up your mind that you want to start using a vape, the choice and range available might make you think again.
Worry not! We've broken the types of e-cigarettes into three distinct sections (Cigalikes, Vape Pens, and Vape Mods), starting with the easiest entry to vaping and leading you to the most advanced forms available. Hopefully once we've cleared your mind, you can start to clear your lungs.
