My high e string keeps breaking when I tune it down, it has happened twice the same way, any help or advice so it doesn't keep on happening?

tuning down? get better strings.

i put nice new strings on my jackson and i started playing and i bent a note about a step or two up and the string snaps, within 5 minutes of putting the string on.

tune it to e and not to the next a#. but really, i'm assuming you mean your tuning down to d or c or something to that nature and then trying to go back to e later. if so, tune it back to e slower and make intervals where you play the string a little bit to loosen it up a bit. if that doesn't work, stop tuning while your high.

It's actually when I tune from e to db-c but im gonna upgrade my strings this time.

Get thicker strings too.

...but that could also affect your playing. So that's probably not the best option.
