Quitting smoking is a big step in anyone’s life, it will be the best choice you ever make for your health and outlook on life. You will find that it does not stop there. Many of us have been empowered by the choice to vape. We are not loosing our best friend, our beloved cigarette. We are gaining our vape, our life saving sidekick. Let’s talk a little about how to begin your vape journey and become a nonsmoker.
Lots of vapers started out using the disposable e-cigarettes. There are issues with the disposables, they are expensive and you will go through lots of them before you realize you are spending lots more money on nicotine replacement than you did on your cigarettes. If you really want to try the cigarette look alikes, I suggest the blucig. They are less expensive than most brands and can be found at most local stores. You can purchase the blucig online at http://www.blucigs.com/disposables They are less expensive online and you can use coupon codes for discounts. They offer nicotine levels of 20 and 24 milligrams. That’s at the high end of nic levels. The average vaper will vape 18mg nicotine. I really like the flavor of the blucig classic tobacco, very reminiscent of the cigarettes I used to smoke. They are a little larger than a cigarette which is good. It reminds me that I have quit smoking and how wonderful it is that I am this strong. I can do anything if I can quit smoking. True story!
When looking for the next step or wanting to begin with the more advanced e-cigs, check out the eGo batteries and the mini tank systems. I might change up the list but for now, this is the gear that I believe will give you the best start and the best chance of success. It IS going to give you a nicotine fix and if you keep using it, it WILL replace smoking. You can do it and vaping can help you do it! The links I provided are for online vape stores that I have had good purchasing experiences with, it can be hard to find the stores that are just right for you, but it’s worth the effort.

To quit smoking and start vaping..
you will need at the very least:
Vaper’s Starter Kit.. eGo battery, clearomizer or atomizer (clearo is the tank, atomizer is for dripping), usb or ac charger and e-liquid.
1 eGo battery: Discount Vapors eGo C Twist 1000mah Variable Voltage or LITECIGUSA’s eGo C Twist 1000mah Manual Battery (these come in many colors, you can choose whatever suits you best. This battery will allow you to adjust the heat of your vape with variable voltages, you simply turn the bottom of the battery to up or down your voltage.) 2 is better than one, but if you just want to get the bare minimum to start with, this battery will last several hours before it needs to be recharged.
1 eGo charger: Discount Vapors eGo USB Rapid Charger – 420mAh (this is a usb charger, if you don’t own a computer or don’t want to use your computer to charge, there are usb to wall adapters available. Even usb to car lighter adapters for charging in your car.) 2 is better than one…back up is GOOD!
1 Mini Vivi Nova Tank: to put your e-Liquid in: Discount Vapors DV Mini Vivi Nova Tank Clearomizer 2.0ml – eGo threaded (this tank has a replaceable atomizer head, you only need to buy replacement coil heads vs buying a whole new tank when the coil burns out or doesn’t taste right any longer.)
1 replacement coil head for your tank: Discount Vapors DV Mini Vivi Nova Coil Head (BACK UP IS GOOD!)
I swear by Vision Vivi Nova Tanks, I have used them since my second month of my vaping journey. I used the Mini Vivi Nova tank by Vision with my Joye eGo battery. It was an awesome beginner set up and inexpensive. All I had to replace were the heads for the tanks and my e-liquids. DV tanks are great but I think the Vision brand has the best taste and life span. Find the Vision brand at LITECIGUSA http://www.litecigusa.net/Vision_Vivi_Nova_Tanks_s/235.htm
If you want to try dripping your e-liquids into an atomizer that screws into the top of your battery, I would suggest the Joye 510 thread atomizer made to fit the eGo batteries. Find them at LITECIGUSA for $6.95 each. They are available in several colors and resistance which means heat and ohm power. You will want a drip shield as well, they fit over the atomizer to give your gear a smooth line finish and keep your e-liquid in the atomizer and not on your hands. http://www.litecigusa.net/Joye_510_Atomizer_p/510atom.htm http://www.litecigusa.net/Joye_ego_cone_p/egocone.htm
E-Liquid: (Both of these e-liquid vendors are great. The liquid is made right here in the US when you order it and the customer service is outstanding) Vapealiciousjuice.com my favorite juice is Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Parkesvaping.com E-liquids lots of great flavor choices.
When you are ready to make your own (DIY) e-liquids which is a much more affordable way to vape, please refer to this article also written by Chelle Snider. Guide to E-Liquids, Stenghts MG and Usage.
