Tips for a smooth switch from tobacco to e-cigarettes

Most people who decide to make the switch from traditional tobacco cigarettes to e-cigs find they experience a smooth transition and quickly adapt and enjoy this new way of 'smoking'. However, there is a small group of people who do not enjoy the experience and this can be for a variety of reasons; sadly, many of these people soon revert back to smoking tobacco cigarettes.


change to e-cigsBelow are some helpful tips if you thinking about making the switch from tobacco cigarettes to e-cigs; we hope this advice will enable a smooth transition and prevent you from ever going back to tobacco cigarettes:


Find a brand that works for you

Bear in mind that when you first switch over to e-cigarettes, you might have to try out a few different brands and styles in order to find one that suits you. Be aware that there is a huge variety of electronic cigarettes available and the quality of different brands and styles can vary enormously. The most important thing is not to give up if you aren’t happy with the first brand or style that you try.


Find flavours you like

There are many different flavours available so it is important to consider what ones you would prefer; those who are used to a tobacco flavour may prefer to stick to it, or those who smoke menthol flavour tobacco cigarettes will probably prefer menthol flavour e-cigarettes. As time goes by, many people decided to try out different flavours such as chocolate, mint or cherry. You may wish to try out a variety of flavours so you can discover what tastes you most prefer. Some people say that it takes them some time to adjust to trying out different tastes, especially when they have been used to smoking tobacco for many years. The most important thing is not to give up if you aren’t content with the first flavour you try.


Be prepared

When making the switch it is a good idea to ensure you are fully prepared and have everything you need to enable you to use your e-cigarette whenever you want to; it is also important to take everything you need if you are out and about (such as spare batteries and cartridges). It is also important to keep a stock of supplies at home to ensure you don't run out. This is important because if you don’t have spare supplies available or lose battery power, you may well be tempted to switch back to traditional tobacco cigarettes.


Look after your e-cig

Treat your e-ciggy with care!  It is important to store it carefully and not to drop it as this may damage it, which could lead to you switching back to tobacco cigarettes.


Have the occasional tobacco cigarette

Remember that it's okay to continue smoking the occasional tobacco cigarette during the switch to e-cigs.


If you experience issues with making the switch to e-cigarettes, it might be worth looking online for support. There are a number of online forums with many helpful members who will be happy to encourage and support you. Most important of all is not to give up! You should be aware that it will take time for your body to adjust to this change - you need to accept this and the transition will be smoother.

These are some very good tips! I had such a hard time making the switch that I almost gave up. Then I found a brand that I liked and haven't looked back since! :)

I still like smoking the real deal, but ecigs are fabulous when smoking indoors. And you don't stink.

I have been using my e-cig for a while, and for the most part it is in very good condition. I haven't touched a tobacco/normal cigarette in years, and I want to keep it that way!

I have ZERO trouble converting to ecigarettes. Takes a bit of tolerance... like flexibility, I mean.
