Vaping 101 - Making the switch to a vape

May 08, 2019

Everyone who smokes wants to quit as we all know by now that smoking cigarettes cause a range of different health problems. Historically quitting involved a number of steps that were shrouded in misinformation. Most people who smoke would agree that to quit smoking would involve multiple failed attempts, doctors visits and ineffective fads, that, in the end, showed little, or no results.

The problem with Patches, Gums, books or any other quit smoking aids is that they didn't give you the same draw, feel and taste as a cigarette and for the most part, were difficult to use, some of the mentioned quit smoking tools even required a visit to the doctor to get access to them! Luckily, there are now more and more options available to us that are designed for ease of use and even emulate the function of a cigarette without all the added nasties. One method that has been proven safe, effective, cheaper and long lasting is e-cigarettes.

E-cigarettes or vaping is by no means a new concept, it has been around for a few years now and the quit smoking tech behind it is only getting better! At VAPO we are passionate about getting people off cigarettes and transitioning them to a product that is 95% less harmful. Read more below to find out tips on making the switch to a vape!


E-cigarettes as a quit smoking aid

When you transition from cigarettes to vaping it is important to choose an e-cigarette starter kit that has a similar feel and draw like a cigarette. Our VAPO Haiz kit or VAPO Alpha kit fulfils this need and are our most popular vape kits to use when quitting smoking. You can read more about our Alpha vape pen here.

At VAPO we understand that switching to a vape can seem like a task that requires research, and knowledge of vape terminology to understand. We want to make the transition easy. Ease of use is the ethos that surrounds many of our e-cigarette products. We have even further broken down the barrier by providing our customers with easy access information on all the different types of vape kits and liquids.


Why vaping works

The feeling of vaping is similar to that of a cigarette, you inhale the vapour into your mouth, then into your lungs (Mouth-to-Lung or MTL). The whole vaping process has been designed to act as a cigarette replacement even down to finer details like the shape and device discreetness. E-cigarettes are generally sold with a variance of nicotine strengths and flavours, this allows the user to customise their experience and over time reduce their nicotine intake. To find out how much nicotine you need it is best to choose a high level initially and then slowly work down towards a lower nicotine strength. This gives you the ultimate control on how you use your device and where you use your device.
