Beginners Guide to Buying Electronic Cigarettes as a Smoking Alternative

Many people are looking into the possibilities of the electronic cigarette as an alternative to smoking. There are of course two main benefits that can be had from switching over, the first is cutting out the inhalation of thousands of harmful substances found in burning tobacco and the second being the money it could save you in the long run.

It is all well and good saying "switch to e cigarettes, they are far better!" But for new users actually choosing a good product can be extremely confusing due to the number of brands and different types of e cigs available. This is where we will try and break things down a little bit and take a look at a few things you need to consider when choosing an e cigarette.

1. Decide on where you will use the e cigarette the most. Will you be using it only in the house? Mostly when you are out and about? Maybe both of these in equal measure?

If you are looking for something to use just when at home then the bigger capacity batteries are something to take a look at, products such as the EGO are ones to look out for.

If you are looking to use mainly when you are out then you will probably benefit most from a mini e cig with a PCC such as the V1P or E-Lites E-Pro4.

If you are looking for an all rounder then a mini e cigarette from Green Smoke or Jacvapour should be good and at a later date maybe adding a large capacity battery.

2. Be sure to check the monthly cost of the e cig you have selected.

Depending on the brand you choose you will have an option of using cartomizers that are disposable and e-liquid that is a DIY option bought in bottles. Cartomizers can vary massively in price so be sure to work out what your monthly vaping costs may be. Re-filling using e-liquid can be a very cost effective way of doing things but is not always for everyone as they can be a little more work.

3. Make sure the brand offers a reasonable warranty and can be contacted easily in case you have any problems.

Most e cig sellers will have a warranty on their batteries, some even offer a full money back guarantee if you find the product isn’t for you. Either way be sure to check their T&C’s and see if what they offer is good for you.

These are just a few things to look for when picking the right electronic cigarette. If it still seems confusing then take a look at e cig review websites that provide recommendations. Be sure the reviewer has used the product though as there are a lot of review websites out there that have never even touched the product. These are normally easy to spot though. If you are unsure then ask them questions about the product if need be, you will soon know if they have used it or not.

One website that uses all the products it reviews is ecigclick.co.uk. They have also been known to give away the e cigarette starter kits they test to lucky readers as well.

How to Quit Smoking With E-Cigarettes

Quitting smoking is hard no matter how you approach it. There are all sorts of patches, gums, “tricks”, and of course, quitting cold turkey. Some of these methods have been found to be effective, but breaking an addiction is no fun regardless of the tools you have.

Electronic cigarettes are the latest smoking cessation trend. They are not directly marketed as such, but it is implied in advertising. Many people start using electronic cigarettes with the intent of quitting nicotine use entirely and end up simply using it as a replacement.

Here is a guide for how to quit nicotine altogether—forever—using electronic cigarettes.

Invest in Decent Equipment

You will not be able to successfully wean yourself off of nicotine by using e-cigarettes in two weeks. It will likely take you months, depending on your addiction level and your dedication.

If you buy disposable electronic cigarettes, you will likely spend more money than you would with traditional cigarettes. Additionally you may run out entirely and be tempted to buy tobacco cigarettes if e-cigs are not as readily available.

A higher-quality nicotine vaporizer system is a better option. It will last months, and will save a substantial amount of money because all that is needed for it to run is a few replacement parts, and nicotine “juice”. 

Nicotine Dosing

Knowing what dosage of nicotine to use is pertinent to your success. The average cigarette has the nicotine equivalent to the 12mg version of e-juice. It is important to start at a similar level to what you are used to smoking, and begin incrementally decreasing the nicotine dosage once you are used to the nicotine vaporizer.

Create a plan for lowering your nicotine level by deciding how often and by how much you will decrease your use.

Decreasing by 1-2mg will likely not even be a noticeable change. Still, it is important not to make drastic changes or you will find yourself with nicotine cravings which can result in relapse. 

Breaking the Habit

Breaking the physical habit is also important when you want to quit smoking. In addition to lowering the nicotine level, also plan on limiting your time smoking the nicotine. If you normally spend 5 minutes at a time smoking, and you smoke 10 times a day, incrementally decrease the time you spend and the number of times daily that you smoke.

This will help you slowly break the physical habit of smoking while you are also beginning to break your addiction.

Nicotine vaporizers and electronic cigarettes are similar to any smoking cessation tool. It takes self-regulation and determination to quit, but the health benefits will outweigh the discomfort in the long run.
