- Select your ejuice strength
Depending on how many ciggs per day you are smoking will determine the MG you will require in your ejuice. You can get 3, 6, 12 and 18mg.
To give you a rough idea:
1-5 cigarettes a day : 6mg
6-10 cigarettes a day : 12mg
11-15 cigarettes a day : 18mg
- Select your ejuice flavour
When you are thinking how do I start vaping you might automatically choose the tobacco flavour e-juice without considering the others. There are some delicious ejuices on the market. You can get dessert, mint, fruits, drink flavours and pretty much everything in between. Try different flavours and mixes of VG and PG to see what suits you and your device best. If you usually smoke menthols, the minty flavours are a great place to start.
- Set it all up
Once you have your e-juice and your device you can set it all up and you will be ready to go! Make sure that you let the e-juice soak into the coil before you take your first puff, or it can be a very unpleasant first hit! Its best to leave it to for a good 5 minutes before having a go! Most devices turn on and off by clicks. Try clicking 3-5 times to turn it on, of it isn't work. Same applies to turning it off.
