I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of vaping and all things vape related. For many smokers, this hype can be a deterrent when compared to their instinctual habit of lighting up a smoke. It’s a habit that’s second nature and requires zero thought, especially for smokers who’ve been at it 10+ years.
When I started vaping in early 2013 (with 15 years of a pack a day under my belt) it took more than one attempt before I found my rhythm, and more importantly, my device and e-liquid of preference. The first few months were essentially a series of awkward stares and ball-breaking from my smoker friends, combined with sprinkles of familiar social pressure, especially if I had a few drinks in me.
I was a smokers smoker, and the thought of losing that sacred, ritualistic hand-to-mouth dance was absolutely terrifying… Truth be told, making the switch from smoking to vaping is a big decision, and as with every big decision, preparation is paramount to your success. In this case, it’s the decision to switch from one deadly habit to an alternative that’s considerably less harmful and costly; both physically and financially.
