The world of vaping can undoubtedly be a confusing and intimidating one for many newcomers, not helped by the abundance of misinformation out there.
With so many people unable or unwilling to do their research to separate the facts from the fiction before buying their first e-cigarette starter kits from a store like ourselves here at European Vaping Supplies (EVS), we thought that a quick, straightforward guide to vaping would be useful.
As their name suggests, e-cigarettes – or electronic cigarettes – are an alternative to smoking and indeed, have become a popular aid for many people wishing to stop smoking. We know this well ourselves here at EVS, as our own staff are former smokers!
How do e-cigarettes assist people to quit smoking?
It’s important to remember that smoking addiction isn’t solely attributable to the ingestion of nicotine – for many people, the act of smoking itself is a pleasure that they find difficult to give up.
This is where e-cigarettes can be so invaluable. Not only are they widely thought to be healthier than traditional cigarettes due to the absence of the literally thousands of carcinogenic by-products that the latter contain, but they also allow the user to continue enjoying the physical act of inhalation that they are used to from smoking.
The use of e-cigarettes is also known as vaping, which may – or may not – involve the continued inhalation of nicotine. That’s because the e-liquids used with e-cigarettes don’t always contain it, which gives users the option of gradually reducing the amount of nicotine in their e-liquid blend so that they can eventually quit ingesting it entirely.

Vaping involves the use of a power source – normally a lithium-ion battery – to apply power to an atomiser, which in turn heats up and vaporises the e-liquid. While it’s a fundamentally simple process, it does mean that you will need to have the right equipment and e-liquids if you are to gain the maximum enjoyment from your vaping.
We know that making sense of all of the different vaping-related items you can purchase – ranging from tanks and coils to MODs and all of the other little extras – can be bewildering.
That’s why we’ve set up a dedicated beginners’ section of our site to help you to get your bearings when it comes to all things vaping – and of course, if you have any further questions, you are welcome to contact the EVS team.
