What To Expect When You Start Using An E Cigarette

Here’s what you can expect when you make the shift from cigarettes to E Cigarettes

These days it seems like you’re more likely to see someone puffing away on their electronic cigarette than you are to see someone smoking a cigarette and that’s because so many people have made the switch. In fact there’s an estimated two and a half million vapers in the UK right now!

If you’re thinking about making the switch you may be wondering what you can expect, well don’t worry, we’ve broken it down for you.


1. A world of flavours

When you first start vaping you may be tempted to stick to tobacco flavour, or push the boat out and try a menthol. That’s ok, totally fine.

But at least take a look through the huge range of e-liquid flavours available. There’s something for everyone; flavours to suit any taste.
Fruity, bakery, dessert, even savoury flavours are all available for your vaping pleasure. Not to mention more types and variations of tobacco than you can shake a stick at.

To get the most out of your vape you really should try out at least a couple of flavours. A great one for people who are just starting out to dip their toe into the world of flavours is TABlites Premium Range Blueberry: sweet, a slight tartness but not too out there as flavours go.

If you did want to go a little deeper into flavour country you should try out Element E-Liquids’ Pink Lemonade. A combination of citrus zing and sweet red berries that you’re sure to love. There is a good reason it’s one of our most popular flavours! Go on, treat yourself.

2. Health Benefits

When you make the switch over to electronic cigarettes you will start to realise the health benefits almost straight away.

Your sense of smell and taste will improve first of all, but quickly afterwards you will notice an improvement in your energy levels and overall well-being. You’ll find things like climbing a flight of stairs won’t be such huge tasks any more.

According to a study of available evidence by the UK government they concluded that vaping is 95% safer than smoking traditional tobacco.

3. Mod Maintenance

As a smoker, maintenance wasn’t really a concern (beyond making sure a working lighter was available and maybe rolling papers) but with e-cigarettes that’s going to have to change a little bit.

Because an electronic cigarette is just that, electronic, it needs a little care and attention to keep it in tip top shape. Keeping it away from sources of high heat, or metal objects that could potentially cause a short circuit that will damage the battery, and of course the dreaded water. As long as you take care of your electronic cigarette though, you’ll be fine.

What you will need to do is fairly regularly check and change your atomiser (or atomiser head). This is the part of the device that heats up your e-liquid, and as such it will need to be replaced when it burns out and starts to make your vapour taste bad.

You’ll also need to keep an eye on your e-liquid levels and make sure you pick up a new bottle or two when you start  to run low.

4. Customisation

This is something that you just  dont get with regular cigarettes . With an E Cigarette you’re able to adjust and change aspects to perfectly suit your tastes and needs.

Not just flavour and nicotine strength – the devices themselves are highly variable in terms of wattage and voltage out-put (which affects the heat of your coil and the ‘kick’ the vapour has), the resistance of the atomiser coils that heat your liquid lend a layer of customisation, certain atomiser tanks even feature adjustable airflow so you can get the perfect draw.

5. Saving Money

Vaping is cheaper than smoking. Much cheaper. In fact by switching from traditional cigarettes to E Cigarettes  the average smoker can expect to save themselves around £1300 a year!

Don’t be put off by the initial outlay, either; most vapers have a period of experimentation and adjustment as they try to find the right combination of device, atomiser and e-liquid (plus accessories if you’re into that) which can seem like an expensive endeavour, however compared to the cost of twenty cigarettes every single day it’s actual not very much at all.

After that, replacement atomisers and juice will keep your costs far lower than constantly buying cigarettes.

Consider this: if you switched from cigarettes to vaping and continued to use e-cigs for the next 30 years you will have saved £37,000!

6. Community

There’s a huge community of current vapers around both online and in the real world who are always happy to welcome a new vaper to the fold. They offer advice, handy hints and sometimes just a friendly chat.

Cigarettes never created such a close-knit community of folks.
In fact, Twitter is a hub of the vaping community with thousands of voices all extolling the virtues of e-cigs and offering a helping hand to people who want a little information.

Some interesting hastags to keep an eye out for include #VapeFam #Vaping and #VapeLife
