5 Reasons Your Personal Vaporizer Did Not Help You Quit Smoking

Vaping is the newest trend, literally millions and millions of people across the Unites States, Canada, Europe, and the rest of the world are now using personal vaporizers (e-cigarettes). Even though the FDA has not approved the e-cig as an approved method to quit smoking, recent studies have shown that vaping every day may actually be the best way for smokers to kick the habit once and for all. We are not all made the same way, have not all been smoking for the same length of time, and we all deal with addiction differently; unfortunately the e-cig is not going to work right away for everyone because of these facts. According to studies, the trick is to stay it at every day and eventually you’re cigarette addiction will diminish.

Realistically the main reason that the personal vaporizer is not working for people is because they have given up using it or are not using it often enough. The 5 main reasons that people give up their personal vaporizer are:  they started with a cheap or low quality cigalike that didn’t work, they started with a cheap or low quality cigalike that tasted bad, they started with a good quality cigalike but the company did not have personal customer service, they started with a cheap or low quality tank/ego device that was too complicated and did not work or it leaked, or they started with a good quality tank/ego device that was still too complicated.

When people start with a low quality or overly complicated personal vaporizer and ego device, it only adds on to the stress levels of trying to quit smoking. People can already become very easily irritated and depressed when attempting to quit smoking, not being able to operate your e-cig is only be adding frustration into the mix. Luckily there are products available that are very effective and have very simple and easy to use tanks. E-cigarettes are evolving, and studies are starting to prove that they do in fact help smokers quit when used more frequently. If you tried using an e-cig in the past and gave up because it didn’t work for you, it definitely seems worth a second shot.

Quitting smoking can be one of the toughest times of a smoker’s life, and making the decision to make the switch to the e-cigarette is the first and most difficult step. As of November 2014 a pack of 20 non-generic cigarettes cost $6.28, and up to $10.56 for regular packs including state and federal taxes. Say you smoke 5 packs of the higher quality cigarettes per week, and you’ve been smoking for 10 years. That means that you spend on average $2,745.60 a year on cigarettes and have spent $27,456 on cigarettes over your smoking life. You’ve spent almost $30,000 on cigarettes in your life, you finally make the decision to quit, and then you decide to buy an e-cigarette for $3.99 from some bootleg website? Of course you were going to fail; you never gave yourself a chance! The decision to start smoking is a very serious, expensive, and in some cases a lifelong decision. You’ve already invested your health, money, and time into smoking; doesn’t quitting smoking deserve that same attention? One of the top reasons that people using the e-cig are unable to quit is because they have purchased a cheap cigalike that was not made by professionals, does not properly distribute nicotine, and realistically does nothing but create air vapor. Even then there have been many issues, people have been claiming they are not getting enough vapor from their e-cig. Buying a cheap model is not only a waste of time and money, it can be potentially dangerous. It’s the cheap made personal vaporizers that have been giving the entire industry a bad name recently with media outlets. Cheap made e-cigs can have issues with the battery which can potentially leak, explode, or catch fire. Do not buy a cheap model when you decide to make the switch, you gave smoking a chance now give quitting a chance!

Purchasing a great tasting product is a very important part in the process of switching from smoking to vaping. The process of giving up cigarettes is a very stressful, frustrating, and difficult time in a smoker’s life; providing a variety of flavors for consumers to choose from adds some enjoyment and pleasure into the process. It is important for the e-cig to provide comfort to the consumer so that they are not just using it because they need to but because they want to and enjoy it. Vaping has become one of the biggest trends in the world, and the fact that the e-liquids are available in so many different flavors is a big part of the reason why. Another one of the top reasons that e-cig user said that it did not help them quit is because they purchased a cigalike that tasted terrible or did not taste good. This just goes to show that the will to quit is only the beginning; there are many other factors to quitting smoking, pleasure and joy is a big part of it. When making the switch from cigarette smoking to vaping, be sure to get a high quality e-cig that comes in a wide variety of flavors to choose from. Remember, the best way to quit smoking and start vaping is to do it because you enjoy it, not because you have to.

One of the most underrated necessities in quitting smoking is getting support from others around you, and others that have quit smoking in the past. It is absolutely essential that the people around you support your decision to quit smoking. Smoking becomes such a big part of a smoker’s life that it takes so much out of them and requires so many changes to their day to day life in order to quit. When you’re quitting you should notify everyone that you spend time with on a day to day basis so that they can help support you through this difficult journey. Not only will most people be very encouraging, they might also be able to help you stay strong during times when you might have otherwise slipped up. It’s very easy to fall off the wagon with smoking cigarettes, having people to lean on when you’re feeling weak can be one of the defining factors in a smoker’s quest to quit. Unfortunately not everyone receives tons of support from the people around them, and sometimes that’s just not enough. It’s easy for someone that has never smoked before to give advice and make suggestions to help a smoker quit but it’s just not the same as hearing it first hand from somebody that has been through it.

When switching from smoking to vaping it is not only important to choose a high quality, good tasting vaporizer and e-liquid, it is also very important to choose a company that can provide some personal support. I don’t mean a company with a general line where you can call and ask questions about the product to someone that makes six dollars an hour. I’m talking about a company that has representatives that not only have extensive knowledge about the product and smoking cessation but representatives that also use the product and have quit smoking in the past. You want a company that will tell you the truth about smoking cessation and provide you with the facts, not just what you want to hear. Many people that stopped using their personal vaporizer said that one of the major reasons they gave it up was because they did not have anywhere to turn or anybody to talk to when they were experiencing withdrawals and cravings. Fortunately there are companies out there that provide these types of services. Usually they provide 24 hour helplines where you can call with any questions, issues, or just for some support from a former smoker and current e-cig user. Making the switch to vaping is for the best but it’s a big decision, get all of the information before you make the decision to change your life for the better!

Many former e-cig users have said that they stopped vaping because their personal vaporizer tank/ego device was much too complicated, that it did not work properly, or that it leaked. One of the major problems reported with “cheap” tanks is that different amounts of vapor are being released when the consumer uses their vaporizer. This is a common problem with cheaper models; they are cheaper for a reason. Of course there are many “Do it yourself” tricks and ways to fix your vaporizer if you are experiencing problems. Do not try any of these methods on your personal vaporizer. Tampering with your e-cig is very dangerous and can cause your battery to explode or catch fire if you are using a cheap e-cig as well. The media has been having a field day because of this, working hard to destroy the personal vaporizers name because of a few cheap products and a few people that misused their e-cig.

One of the other major issues reported about the tanks is that they are leaking. Many people have reported not only leaking from the air intake slot but the e-liquid actually leaking through the mouth piece into their mouth. Not only is this disgusting, it can be very dangerous. Nicotine is a deadly poison, and though it’s safe in small does, can be fatal when ingested in large amounts. Not to say that this is going to kill somebody, there isn’t enough nicotine in an e-cig for that to happen, but ingesting liquid nicotine directly into your mouth is not good for your health. One of the main reasons these kinds of problems are happening is because the e-cig is not being cleaned regularly; a poor excuse if you ask me. Yes you should keep your personal vaporizer clean but under no circumstances should your product be potentially dangerous because it’s dirty. Using a high quality tank/ego device is very important, making the switch to vaping was already a tough enough decision; you don’t need problems with your tank because you purchased a low quality one.

I know what you’re thinking, you bought a high quality ego device and it’s still way too complicated. Many people that are trying to get into vaping have said that their ego kit came with way too many parts and was very confusing when trying to fill it and put it back together;  so complicated in fact that it caused them to give up vaping and take up smoking cigarettes again. It’s true, the ego kit does come with quite a few pieces and it does need to be taken apart to refill your personal vaporizer. The good news is that the more modern vaporizers are much simpler and all of the parts fit back together like puzzle pieces. If your vaporizer is still too complex for you, there’s no need to get frustrated and quit, there are many videos online that can show you exactly how to refill your e-cig and put it back together. If you don’t have access or the videos didn’t help you, you can always call one of the personal support lines and they will be able to direct you through the steps.

Vaping is taking over, and now with new studies suggesting that vaping every day is the best way to quit smoking, it’s only going to become more popular. I’m not telling you that switching from smoking to vaping will definitely help you stop smoking cigarettes for good but what I can tell you is that it is the healthier choice, and that if you stick with it your chances of quitting smoking will greatly increase. Just remember that when you do decide to make the jump to vaping make sure you choose a personal vaporizer that is high quality, good tasting, and made by a company that can provide you with personal support and answer all of your questions and concerns.
