This is the moment
you’ve been waiting for

You did your research, you read this guide, and you picked
out, purchased, and assembled your first e cig setup – but now what? This thing
feels nothing like a traditional cigarette (even most cig-a-likes feel
different than regular cigarettes), and you might be intimidated by its sheer
awesomeness – or by the fact that you don’t want to look like an idiot vaping
your e cig in public. We’ve all been there. Even though vapor looks a heck of a
lot like smoke, using an e cig is quite a bit different than actually smoking –
but that’s part of what makes vaping a-freaking-mazing!

Believe it or not, but that fact that using an e cig is
DIFFERENT than smoking a cigarette helps you disassociate the ritual of smoking
with satiating your nicotine cravings. However, there’s no doubt that there is
a little bit of a learning curve when you first start vaping, but we’ve got you

Pre First Vape

With a cigarette, you just need some hands, your mouth, and
a flame. E cigs also require some hands and a mouth, but no flame is required –
it’s like magic! Okay, it’s not like magic, it’s just electricity (although,
electricity does remind me a lot of magic). So instead of a fire, you need to
figure out how to operate your e cig – here’s how.

1. Figure Out How to
Turn your E Cig On and Off

Most, but not all, e cigs can be turned on and off. Your e
cig will not produce vapor if your e cig is off. Feel free to call me captain
obvious if you must, but it’s important to figure out how to turn the darn
thing on, so do it!

Hint: many manual e cigs require that you hit a button
anywhere between 3-5 times. Just read the instructions – you’ll be fine.

2. Identify What You
Need to Do to Make the E Cig Produce Vapor

Some cig-a-likes are automatic, so all you have to do is
inhale, but most (and the best) e cigs have a button that you’ll need to press.
If your e cig has a button, do not let this scare or intimidate you. I will
admit, the idea of pushing a button kind of freaked me out (it doesn’t take
much to freak me out I guess), but I adapted – so can you.

3. Adjust Your Volts
or Watts to the Lowest Setting (If Applicable)

All e cigs are different and some have variable settings. As
a rule of thumb, it’s best to start low and adjust to higher temps as you go in
order to hone in on the perfect flavor to vapor ratio. Before you begin, make
sure your settings are on the lowest setting (for your first time) to ensure a
tasty first experience instead of a gross one. To learn more about watts and
volts and what they do, feel free to check out a more in depth article here.

4. Make Sure There’s
Enough E Juice in Your Tank/Cartomizer

Again, this might seem like common sense, but there’s
nothing worse than taking a dry hit (trust me). Not only does it taste like
burning butt hairs (I don’t actually know what burning butt hairs taste like,
but I have imagined tasting them, and it’s gross), but it might actually ruin
your cartomizer, coil, or wick. So figure out how to fill it up, and make sure
everything is properly saturated.

How to Take Your
First Magical Puff of Vapor

Finally, now we’re at the fun part! Here’s how to inhale
that sweet sweet nicotine.

1. Before You Start
Vaping, Make Sure It’s Allowed

Basically, if you’re on your own property there’s no
problem, but don’t vape where it’s not allowed, or where you wouldn’t feel
comfortable smoking a traditional cigarette. Why? Because there’s a lot of
legislation out there (both pending and passed) limiting where people can vape.
So make sure you’re vaping where it’s legal and where it won’t piss anyone off
to the point where they’ll try to make it illegal.

2. Hit the Fire
Button (If Applicable), Put the Mouthpiece to your Mouth, and Inhale

You’re not going to have to inhale as hard as you do with a
traditional cigarette, so keep that in mind for your first puff. There’s also
some debate regarding the superiority of mouth-hits over lung-hits (or
vice-versa). Personally, I like lung-hits because I feel like I get a better
nicotine buzz, but there are people who prefer mouth hits because there’s
better flavor and more vapor. Either way, do what feels right to you, and don’t
let anyone tell you what to do (whateva – I do what I want)!

3. Wait a Beat Then

Exhale through your mouth or nose – it doesn’t matter. I
like doing both because it makes me look like a dragon!

4. Rinse and Repeat
Until Satisfied

Keep in mind that there are a few types of atomizer tanks
that work best if the e cig is held horizontally to help promote better
wicking. Top coil clearomizers are the most notable offenders, but if you’re
using a cartomizer/carto tank or an atomizer cartridge combo this shouldn’t be
an issue.
