Vaping is something that’s absolutely shot up in popularity in recent years. With so many people getting into it, there are definitely a lot of beginners looking for advice. With plenty of legitimate questions popping up surrounding everything from what brands to go with to where it’s socially acceptable to vape, we thought it was time to make a list of important do’s and don’ts.
Vaping is generally very safe, but only if you use vapes made by reputable brands. Look into what’s available, reading reviews on the top options that you come up with. If you don’t want to do research into the vapes, then make sure you buy them from a reputable retailer.
While vaping was relatively unregulated for a while, it’s now subject to basically the same regulations as smoking. This means that it’s illegal (and generally considered quite rude) to vape in any public space where smoking is also banned. If you’re vaping in a private space, it’s best to be polite and ask the people around you if they mind you vaping.
If you’re new to vaping, then you might not be aware of the fact that you can choose between different levels of nicotine, from nicotine-free vapes all the way to relatively high concentrations within the e-liquid. If you’re starting out, then it’s best to go with a low-nicotine strength, so as not to be overwhelmed. If you’re trying to quit, then you can slowly decrease the strength as time goes on.
While people will definitely ask to use it, it’s important to be aware of the risks of sharing vapes. Sharing them is a relatively unhygienic practice, and can increase your risk of catching a disease from the people around you.
There are all sorts of vapes available on the market, some of which are a lot more complicated than others. If you’re a beginner, then it’s best to start with a single-use device that doesn’t have an overwhelming number of buttons and settings. As you progress, you can always invest in a more complex device if you find those simpler options are limiting.
Don’t vape around vulnerable individuals
While vaping is a lot safer than smoking, it can still be irritating for vulnerable adults and children. As a result, it’s best to vape away from people who might be harmed by your second-hand vaping, to avoid any unexpected side effects.
Hopefully, these tips will have made you feel a little more confident to go out and start vaping. It’s a relatively inexpensive hobby, meaning it shouldn’t matter if you get anything wrong the first time around. Just make sure that you buy your vaping materials from well-respected brands, and don’t vape around children or vulnerable adults. Other than this, you’re ready to go out and explore!
