So, you’ve decided to make 2016 the year of all years to be done with traditional cigarettes once and for all. You’ve got that brand new, handy e-cigarette starter kit, some delicious cartridges in assorted flavors, and a whole lot of motivation on your side. Last pack of tobacco cigs has been smoked and the empty package is disposed. This is it – you’re ready to switch to e-cigs!
So, now what?
Well, it’s going to be different, and we’re here to tell you that you’re going to do great. It most likely will not be a quick snap of the fingers and your tenure with tobacco will be a thing of the past. Perhaps you will never again touch another traditional cigarette, however, expect to need some time to transition thoroughly.
One of the benefits to switching your method of smoking, (to vapor cigs) as opposed to outright quitting, is that you get the freedom of creating so much of the same experience. You still get to enjoy the feeling of actually smoking, being able to puff on the e-cigarette and feel the hit of vapor in your throat, and tasting it. You will still get that familiar feeling of nicotine, if you decide to use cartridges at a similar level of nicotine you are used to. It’s really quite similar, and it’s a process that can be tailored to your needs.
The first week is typically the hardest because the change will most likely hit you most dramatically. THe cravings for what you’re used to will probably hit. Your habit of lighting and smoking the cig will probably irk you. Your body will most likely yearn for the chemicals it no longer is being fed. This is all very normal. Stick with it though, it’s only a matter of time before this passes.
Having the ability to customize your vaping is another benefit you have when switching to e-cigs. There are so many options, you have the ability to go with more or less nicotine, choose your flavor, choose the style and size of your device, choose amongst a wide array of different devices, which accessories to incorporate into your usage; there are just so many ways to make vaping a part of your lifestyle, and tailor it into your way of life; unlike tobacco, which required you to adapt to its conformity. If 2016 is your year to get smoke free, stay on track; you’ll be so proud of yourself once you make it through!
