Christmas Vaping Gift Guide

Christmas Vaping Gift Guide Presumably if you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’ve come across this blog post through performing a Google search like “Christmas vaping gift guide”.

Maybe you’ve got a difficult-to-buy-for friend who you know is into vaping. Or maybe a certain someone in your life has been trying to quit smoking for years, and might have expressed a casual interest in e-cigarettes, only to seemingly ‘never get round to’ exploring it for real?

You get the idea – this blog post is very much for helping you to land the perfect present – or several – for this kind of person. So, let’s get started with suggestions!

A vaping starter kit

As the term “starter kit” suggests, these products are the “ground floor” of the vaping world – the kind of thing someone might buy if they’re only just getting acquainted with e-cigarettes or wondering what the fuss is all about.

Plus, with the most affordable vape starter kits giving the purchaser change from two tenners, they’re priced well for a Christmas gift budget.

The UK store Shisha Vibe, for example, stocks popular starter kits from such renowned vape-industry brands as Aspire, Smok, Lost Vape and Innokin, so that your recipient can make the smoothest possible transition to life as an e-cigarette user.

E-liquids

One thing that unites beginner and experienced vapers alike is an appreciation of e-liquids. They’ll always be running out of them, and a few bottles are an interesting, cheap and risk-free present, in that it’s hardly the end of the world if your recipient isn’t hugely enthusiastic about the flavours you select.

In any case, given the vast range of e-juice flavours available on the market – from almond, aloe vera and apricot to vanilla, waffle and yoghurt – there should hopefully be only a small chance of the person who receives your present being unappreciative.

Tanks

When you’re browsing vaping online stores, you’re likely to see references to terms like ‘mouth to lung’ and ‘sub ohm’, including in relation to tanks.

Basically, they’re references to two different styles of vaping, ‘sub ohm’ also sometimes being called ‘direct-to-lung’ vaping. Mouth-to-lung vaping, or MTL, is the style of vaping that most closely mimics the experience of smoking cigarettes. This unsurprisingly makes it a go-style style among those are only just getting into vaping, or who miss the sensation of smoking.

Meanwhile, direct-to-lung (DTL) – or sub ohm – vapers are those who like to blow clouds while vaping. The ‘sub ohm’, by the way, comes from the fact that a DTL kit needs to have a coil resistance of less than one ohm; MTL vapers, meanwhile, require a tank with restricted airflow and a coil with somewhat higher resistance – typically more than one ohm.

You can probably begin to see, then, the importance of first determining your recipient’s favoured style – or likely favoured vaping style – before buying a sub ohm or MTL tank for them.

Other vaping accessories

If you know enough about vaping and your intended recipient’s preferences to have the luxury of being a bit more adventurous with your purchase, what about some coils, pods or even a tool kit?

The above is certainly not an exhaustive list of possibilities for buying someone close to you a vaping-related present this festive season. Nonetheless, it will have hopefully given you some invaluable inspiration.

Reasons to Quit Smoking This Year

Reasons to Quit Smoking This Year2020 has been one of those years that, if it were our child, would be sat on the naughty step for an indefinite time out. A lot of people have reached their limit, with restrictions, job insecurities, and concern about the state of the world. Many will be wondering how they could possibly quit smoking with so much going on all around them.

Quitting does not necessarily need to involve completely foregoing nicotine completely if you don’t feel ready. Instead, you might opt to switch to vaping. For more info, click the link to browse through our range of vape liquids. You might find a delicious one at a strength that suits you.

Detox from Chemicals

Cigarettes contain many toxic chemicals, such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, methanol, and even lead. None of these are good for you and have been known to cause various types of cancers and other illnesses. Getting rid of these chemicals can help to prolong your life and reduce your likelihood of gaining a smoking related illness. It is possible to restore your likelihood back down to that of a non-smoker, so the sooner you quit, the more positive effect you will have on your body.

Be a Better Role Model

Having young children means that your every move is being monitored and emulated. If your child sees you smoking, they may assume that means that there is nothing wrong with it and, therefore, be more likely to smoke as they grow up. This can even occur if you tell them about the health problems that can coincide with smoking, as they will still see you continue to do it, and so may not believe it to be as serious as you make out. The older your child is when you quit, the more likely they may be to smoke themselves. This means that quitting now is far better than leaving it even another couple of months.

Save Money

Smoking costs an extortionate amount of money. With a pack costing nearly £9 now, this means that a 20-a-day smoker will be spending roughly £63 per week on cigarettes. Over the course of a year, that comes to £3276! This money could be better spent elsewhere on bills, home improvements, saving for a mortgage or car, or even a family holiday abroad. Add into this that the cost of cigarettes is ever increasing, and it is clear that it would be better to jump off this toxic ship now before you haemorrhage more of your hard earned cash into something that is detrimental to your health.

Quitting smoking may not be easy, but it certainly is possible. Gaining the support of family and friends, as well as speaking to your doctor or local cessation team, can help you to achieve your goal. In the long run, you will have more money and be an overall healthier person without that white stick holding you back.

 

Five Ways to Quit Smoking

It’s 2019, which means that everyone is aware of just how damaging cigarette smoke is, and if you’re still a smoker there’s never been a better time to quit. Thankfully, there are loads of things you can do to help you quit, and we thought we’d take a look at some of them in more detail.

Vaping

Vaping is now the most popular method of quitting cigarettes, and it can save you huge amounts of money in the long run, too. Once you’ve bought your e-cigarette, you can choose from a huge range of eliquid flavours and the whole setup will cost significantly less than smoking.

Cold Turkey

Some people choose to go cold turkey when they quit smoking, which means putting the cigarettes down and not using any other methods to help you. It takes a lot of willpower to go completely cold turkey and people who chose this method are most likely to fail and go back to smoking again.

Nicotine Replacement

There are a whole load of nicotine replacement products out there and whole they’re better for you than cigarettes because they don’t contain tar and other nasties, they replace one crutch with another and eventually you’ll need to quit the patches or gum, too!

Therapy 

A lot f people who smoke do so because of the habit, needing something to do with their hands and a lot of people replace another habit with smoking, so it stands to reason that some sort of behavioural therapy would help you to quit. A therapist can help you to identify triggers and find ways to replace the habit of smoking with something more positive.

Medication

In the worst cases, there are medications that your GP can give you which will help you to stop smoking. You should only resort to medications if you’re finding it impossible to quit with any other method and your GP will be able to give you more information about the medications available.
