Learning how to vape can seem pretty daunting but it’s actually so simple that millions of people worldwide have easily made the switch from smoking normal cigarettes to electronic vaping devices with very little trouble.
The first thing you need to do is get used to your device so you understand how it all goes together, Electric Vape devices are so simple you should be charged and e-juiced up in no time.
The First Time
It’s important to understand that you are inhaling vapour, not smoke. There is a lot of difference between the 2 and your lungs will not be used to it, your lungs are used to tobacco smoke. With a traditional cigarette, you pull hard to get smoke, but with vaping, you should pull slow and steady. An important fact to remember, the liquid is inside your atomizer/cartomizer just below the mouthpiece, so don’t pull too hard or you could end up with a little E-liquid on your taste buds, you may not enjoy that as much as the vape. A cough or 2 when you first start is normal, it takes a little while for your lungs to get used to the vapour. Adjust the airflow on your device to increase or decrease the mixture of vapour and air, more air = less harshness on the throat. Don’t worry, you will be constantly changing your preferences as you get more used to the sensation.
There two different types of inhales: one where you pull the vapour into your mouth, hold it there, then inhale the vapour. The other is where you pull the vapour into your mouth and directly to your lungs without holding it in your mouth. The first is called a “mouth hit” while the other is called a “lung hit”.
Many vapers prefer lung hits over mouth hits. The reasons vary, however, the main reason is the increase in vapour production. Cloud chasers enjoy blowing the largest and thickest vapour clouds they can. To do this as a vape user you need to use lung hits, as you can gather a lot more vapour in your lungs than you can in your mouth.
It is important to note that the larger clouds have a cost, that being one of flavour intensity. Since the vapour is bypassing the mouth, your taste buds don’t have the çhance to make much contact with the flavoursome vapour.
This style of vaping feels very much like smoking a cigarette does. When a smoker takes a drag of a cigarette, the smoke gathers in their mouth before it is inhaled into their lungs. That sensation in the throat called a throat hit, it’s that feeling that makes the transition from standard tobacco cigarettes to e-cigarettes so easy.
Mouth-to-lung hits help save on e-juice as well. Because lung hits produce more vapour than mouth hits, more e-liquid is used.
Find your own style of vaping, don’t give up and what discover vaping that feels most comfortable for you. Once you make the swap you will never want a standard ciggy again.
