There’s no denying that more regular smokers are switching to vaping in an effort to curb their long-term smoking habits. Many people also use vaping as a bridge towards the ultimate goal of quitting altogether.

You’re probably reading this because you’re thinking of making a move from smoking to vaping, but you have some unanswered questions. You may even have some worries about vaping, and some online searches might have proved fruitless.

If you’re new to vaping and want to educate yourself on the subject fully, and you want to eventually quit your smoking addiction or habit, the following information will tell you all you need to know:

Vaping Is Less Harmful Than Smoking

The main issue with smoking is that you inhale all kinds of toxins, and they end up lingering inside your body. What’s more, regular smoking can cause permanent damage to your vital organs and even lead to long-term medical conditions and diseases.

Many smokers are aware of those facts, and that’s why vaping has become an alternative option that is constantly growing in popularity. For example, people who smoke cigarettes won’t inhale tar when they switch to vaping; tar is a leading carcinogen.

You’ll Have to Get Technical

If you’ve never owned or used a vaporizer before, you’ll need to educate yourself on the various components and how they work. For instance, you can buy portable vaporizers or “vape pens” you can take anywhere instead of desktop ones you might use in your home.

Portable vaporizers also need batteries, such as those from Bloom Farms Wellness, to operate. The batteries are rechargeable via a standard USB cable, meaning you can usually charge it from the same cord as what you’d use for your smartphone.

You’ll also need to familiarize yourself with technical terms like atomizer, e-juices, cartridges, and more. Take a look at this article from Wikipedia for further information as a starting point in your educational journey.

You Won’t Annoy Other People

A bugbear that people have when they are near smokers is they end up passively smoking as well, whether they want to or not. Plus, smokers and those that are often near them will end up smelling of tobacco or whatever else they smoke during the day.

When you vape, the only thing that gets emitted is steam from the vaporizer. If someone vapes using a scented e-juice, for example, you might occasionally get a sniff of tolerable scents like orange, lavender, or vanilla.

As you can imagine, most people would prefer hanging around those that vape instead of those that smoke cigarettes or other items.

You Can Control Your Nicotine Intake

Lastly, when you start vaping, the good news is you don’t have to “make do” with a set amount of nicotine in your e-juice as you would with regular cigarettes. Many people that wean themselves off nicotine do so by lessening their intake each time they buy new e-juice.

If that’s something you would like to do, you will almost always find a vast choice of e-liquids available with varying levels of nicotine.

You’ll eventually reach a point where you have minimal nicotine intake, and your body gets used to it, giving you the option to quit vaping and consuming nicotine for good.

5 Post Pandemic Dating Tips

Now that restrictions are finally lifted many people are keen to get back on the dating scene. If you’re finding the prospect a little scary, check out these five post pandemic dating tips.

1 . Get Prepared

If you haven’t dated in a long while you might be feeling a little overwhelmed right now. Getting yourself prepared will help you to feel better. Dating preparation looks different for different people. For some of us it’s choosing a new outfit, for others it’s asking our friends for a pep talk. Here are a few general ideas to inspire you:

  • Treat yourself to something that makes you feel fabulous, whether it’s a pre-date manicure or a new lipstick!
  • Meditate and breathe deeply, it’s normal to feel nervous, observe that feeling and let it pass.
  • Had a few bad dating experiences in the past? It’s time to let that go. Move forward from those memories and prepare for new horizons. 
  • Free yourself from dating misconceptions and approach the journey with an open mind.

2. Gain Perspective

If you’re feeling a little nervous it’s time to gain a little perspective. Remember, your date is probably feeling just as on-edge. It’s been a long while since we’ve been able to date in-person, and so it’s bound to feel a little strange!

Worried you’ll run out of things to say? Write a few notes before you go! Don’t take the notes with you, (that’ll be awkward if they fall out of your pocket)! Just brainstorm a few conversation topics that you can refer back to if you draw a blank.

3. Virtual if you prefer

Remember just because you can date in person doesn’t mean you have to. If you’re not feeling comfortable, then stick with virtual dates. Lots of people will still prefer to do this, it’s okay to wait until you are ready. Of course virtual dates tend to be a bit more awkward, so it’s best to keep the date pretty short.

4. Little Steps 

If going for dinner with a stranger seems way too much right now, take things back to basics. Suggest a quick coffee or a walk in the park, take things slowly and at your own pace. We are all keen to get back out into the world, but four dates in one week might be a bit overwhelming! Choose one person from a dating app who you feel the most connection with, and go from there.

5. Have fun with it 

Dating is meant to be fun, so ensure that you are having fun with it! Don’t date for the sake of it. If you’re not enjoying the experience then don’t put yourself through it. Check out alternative ways to have fun whether it’s phonechatlines.com articles or secret parties! Seek out the opportunities that you want in your life, and above all stay safe!

Dating after the pandemic is what you make of it. Don’t worry about what anyone else is doing, just focus on your values and your preferences. The dating scene can be tough, but it can also been plenty of fun.
