How to Switch to Vaping

Are you a smoker looking for a new, vapor-infused, tobacco-free, nicotine-loving lifestyle? Well you’re in the right place! We have the best products to help you make the switch, and we give you tons of ways to do it. Keep reading to have a look at our different products, different flavors, and different options that can make leaving tobacco for good super easy, and actually enjoyable!

Pick a Style

You can choose between our South Beach Smoke e-cigarettes (basic cig-a-likes) or any of our advanced personal vaporizers. We suggest either e-cigs or a simplified vaporizer, such as the Air or Storm. Our e-cigarettes were made to recreate the experience of smoking, so you get a device that looks, feels, and works very similarly. Vaporizers give you a more intense experience, and they allow you to have more control. E-cigs work with cartridges for refills, which come pre-filled, and you swap old ones when they run out; super easy, but a little pricier than using liquids. With vaporizers you fill your own liquids, which isn’t hard, you just have to master the pour. It can get messy the first few times, so be careful.

So you choose: if you want easy and comfortable go with e-cigs, if you’re more adventurous and extreme go with a vaporizer.

Pick a Flavor

Sure, there’s no reason you have to pick just one! When you have 30,000 at your whim, we urge you to go the “more-is-more route.” So, pick one, pick a few, pick a dozen; whatever! One of the best things about vaping is that you have a lot of options, and you are never limited to tobacco and menthol like traditional smoking.

Pick Some Accessories

Accessories are fun + functional. They take the experience up a few notches, and allow you to have your vaping fit seamlessly into your flow. Because vaping comes with the perk of being super clean, you have the ability to organize things into your life easily, and accessories really feed into this individualized aspect. So, check out our e-cigarette accessories and our vaporizer accessories to see which ones float ya boat!


We urge you to keep an open mind when switching; as similar as vaping is to smoking, it’s still different. Better, but different. Take your time, learn as much as you can, be patient if things don’t go as quickly as you’d like, and most importantly, have fun!

What’s the Deal with a Vape Cough?

Coughing while vaping? Thought it was only a tobacco thing? Well, here’s what it’s caused by and why it’s happening. Luckily, vapers cough is typically a temporary thing, as opposed to a smoker’s cough, which tends to stick around for the long haul. Fortunately, a vape cough can be controlled!


When vaping, you should generally drink a lot of water. In fact, everyday life calls for at least 6-8 glasses, so drink up. You aren’t getting real water intake when vaping; as it is vaporized, and the act of vaping can make you thirsty. So, if a bout of coughing hits, first thing you should do is drink some water.

Nicotine Strength

Not having the right nicotine strength can contribute to not only a big fat bout of coughing, it can also provoke a sore throat, and the wonderful feeling of nausea. If you think this is a possibility, your nicotine strength may be too high so try decreasing it. Our range of nicotine levels ranges from 0-24 mg, so don’t think you’re limited on options!

Fix Your Flavor

We offer some 30,000 different e-juice flavors, and it can be a wee bit overwhelming on those sensitive little taste buds if you’re just converting to the vapor side. It happens quite frequently, y’all! If that’s the situation you’re faced with, stick to something familiar, like tobacco or menthol flavors and wait for your sense of taste to acquaint.

Hitting the Vape Like a Cig

Vaping and smoking are two different beasts, and hitting them requires two different methods. Long, slow drags can cause coughing, so be warned. Sure, you are dragging and inhaling, but with vaping you should be taking short, quick, 2-3 second hits, unlike with the long, slow drags of smoking.


Allergies sometimes happen as a result of the PG used in most e-liquid formulas, and this can cause coughing. PG is the part of the liquid that creates a strong throat hit, though for some people it doesn’t agree with their systems. You may need to try a different liquid altogether.

So, when it comes to a vape cough, know there are direct reasons behind it, and fixes for it. It’s most likely not a permanent thing, and can remedied with some adjustments. Vape on and vape happily, my friends!

Happy St. Patty’s Day from South Beach Smoke!

Happy St. Patty’s Day, from all of your friends here at South Beach Smoke! One of the most fun holidays of the year, there is nothing wrong with getting your party on, Irish-style! St. Patrick may have earned his claim to fame, and annual raucous party day for bringing Christianity to Ireland, but the holiday is more known for light-hearted mayhem! So, in honor of the greenest day of the year, here are the top 10 ways to celebrate! Slainte!

  1. Wear green. Duh. Green bow tie, green hair, green shirt, green thong, or green body paint; you wouldn’t want to get pinched, would you?

  2. Get your fine self a green vaporizer to tote around; accessories count as wearable.

  3. Vape with our March Blend of the Month, Irish Coffee. It’s delicious decadence, and very much in the spirit of the day.

  4. Hit up a parade. Marching, dancing, and being all cheery are

  5. Eat some Irish grub. Designated Irish fare includes the customary corned beef and cabbage (if you’re the Irish-American sort), plus the almighty, iconic potato (remember the Famine?), lamb stew, and the classic Shepherd’s pie. Hungry yet?

  6. Blare some Celtic music. It’s the quickest way to get in the spirit.

  7. Traditional celebrations are the bomb, whether you’re in Chicago, Boston, Miami, or are celebrating in your local city. Honoring the nation’s Irish roots is pretty common just about everywhere, so get involved!

  8. Pub crawl. Whether it’s a formally organized shindig or you and your buddies get together for some green-tinted debauchery, hitting the pubs and bars is rather tradition. Most bars and pubs go all out for this holiday, as most people aim to have a pint or two in celebration.

  9. Throw a party. Yes, pubs and bars and block parties are a mainstay, but sometimes it’s cool to keep it kinda low key. Rounds of Irish whiskey from your living room, with good friends, good food, and an intimate scene is never a bad thing!

  1. Get ready for massive recovering tomorrow, especially if you’ve got to make it to work in the AM! Necessity #1: Your vape. With a soothing blend, such as our Irish Coffee to make it all better!

Tips for Top Performance

Need a few pointers for total performance perfection? Here are some of our most useful tips that can help you get the most out of your vape! Consider this your cheat sheet; print it out if need be, because these handy little helpers should be memorized!

Battery Not Working:

  1. Check to see if the cartridge is screwed on too tight.

  2. Is it charged? Easily overlooked, it does happen to the best of us!

  3. It may be time for a new cartridge, try a fresh one.

Not Enough Vapor:

  1. Cartridge on too tight? It should be firm, but not too tight.

  2. Check your technique, are you hitting it properly with long, slow inhales?

  3. Is the cartridge old? A cartridge will stop producing vapor when it is done.

  4. Have things gotten dirty? Check and clean the connection points between the battery and the cartridge. Old liquid can get in, dry up, and cause problems.

E-Cigarette Makes You Cough:

  1. After switching, you may find that vaping makes you cough. It’s normal.

  2. Drink A LOT of water. This will keep your mouth and throat hydrated, your system functioning properly, your circulation flowing, and will allow your body to process out the old junk quicker.

  3. Try a lesser nicotine level in your cartridge, as vapor is different than smoke, and sometimes you need less than you think.

Not Getting Adequate Vapor Hits

  1. Vape with long, slow drags, not short quick ones like you would with tobacco cigarettes.

  2. Check the liquid, you may need to switch to a different e-juice with more PG for your particular needs.

And if these don’t work, it may be time for an e-cigarette upgrade. We’ve got all the best products, whether you are just starting out the journey to vaping or are a seasoned user looking for a more advanced product. Check out our line of advanced vaporizers if you want to go for something more technical, or our standard line of e-cigs for high-quality basic electronic cigarettes.
