Today, we would like to share quitting tips from the vape community.
Tired of the cigarette? Want to move on to something else? Why not try the e-cigarette? They are overwhelming today, most of them are produced by vape manufacturer in China, also known as OEM vape. It is to your credit to try the break with tobacco, but the choice of the e-cig is not trivial. It is a financial investment, not excessive but all the same. And it is a personal investment that requires a little time to be well informed and have the correct information. Because the whole secret is there.
Switching to vaping can be a headache in the face of the plethora of materials and liquids available on the market. Once this step has been taken, forget the terms will, effort, frustration, lack, etc. With the e-cig, quitting smoking can be done with pleasure, without effort, and without stress. And that is the key to success. In 2017, I quit smoking!
The excellent info is with the pros. The ideal is to have a physical shop near you that will tell you everything. You will also see live material essential for forming an opinion. You will also be amazed by the diversity of the equipment offered. You may also be surprised by the shape and look of the vape kits, which no longer have much in common with first-generation electronic cigarettes (cigar-likes). The equipment has evolved enormously in a few months, gaining in miniaturization and efficiency. You can also taste the e-liquids and therefore test the e-cig simultaneously. Take your time.
If you do not have a good shop near you, then there are the net and online shops with written guides that will give you the first keys. And if you have a question, you should ask the seller to help you make a better decision. There are no silly questions; they all deserve to be asked, so don’t be shy.
Let’s talk finances and money. A few years ago, it was said that the first purchase was equivalent to the price of a carton of cigarettes. The good news, we are still in this price range today. You can acquire effective equipment (with liquids) for less than 70€. The first prices are less than 25€ for the latest generation equipment that is effective in terms of flavor/steam rendering. At this price, you have a complete e-cigarette recharged by USB. One or two resistors (the resistor is a bit like the engine of the vape kit) to vape from the moment of purchase. The resistance’s life depends on your vaping frequency and the type of liquid used. On average, with a base liquid (50/50 PG/VG), you can vape for at least 2 to 3 weeks. To start, the first-price liquids are perfect. Around €5 for 10ml with a nicotine level of your choice.
But the e-cig would not be an adequate substitute for smoking tobacco if it were not for the nicotine in the e-liquids. On this subject, two clarifications are necessary: Nicotine is responsible for addiction. But it is a relative addiction because it is quite possible to reduce your nicotine level and even eliminate it with electronic cigarettes.
It is combustion that is responsible for diseases, and that makes cigarettes dangerous. The combustion of tobacco and all the added additives that makeup cigarettes (not to mention the paper). There is no combustion with the electronic cigarette.
An important choice: the nicotine level
The choice of nicotine level for your e-liquid is vital because it must meet your current needs. Unlike cigarettes, with e-cigs, there is no nicotine shot when smoking. Nicotine takes longer to take effect, unlike cigarettes, where the effect is immediate (that’s why we talk about shooting). As a result, we vape a lot when we start. This is normal, nothing to worry about.
Beginners are generally advised to use e liquids with a high rate of nicotine to meet their needs. But, one vaper does not make the other, and it is your feeling that takes precedence. Currently, there are liquids with 11, 12, 16, or even 18 mg/ml of nicotine. To find its adequate rate, it is necessary to test. The ideal is to test in the shop. Otherwise, a straightforward trick consists of mixing a high-rate e-liquid with the same liquid without nicotine and finding its ideal weight. Many vapers practice this little exercise.
An important point: the taste
The choice of the taste of the e-liquid is also essential. Do not hesitate to vary to avoid saturation and boredom of the taste buds. It is important not to get tired at the risk of falling back into the cigarette! Tobacco flavors are not an obligation for a first purchase. It is totally up to you.
One more piece of advice: don’t rush into a premature reduction in your nicotine level. The reduction is made naturally, over time, and sometimes by changing material. No precipitation. To read on this subject: – e-cigarette: do not be afraid of nicotine – Vap’You. It may sound strange, but with nicotine, your brain takes over. It will tell you when it is time to lower the nicotine level.
The e-liquid for e-cigarettes is assimilated into a tobacco product. Indeed, with nicotine entering the composition of conventional cigarettes, the law did not go to see further and cut the grass under the foot of the e-cig. Abruptly and without realizing, the phenomenon is still recent. The e-cig, the personal vaporizer as it should be called more accurately, is a natural aid to smoking cessation. Remember that 6 million vapers have stopped smoking thanks to the e-cig.
To conclude, switching to e-cigs is done with a minimum of curiosity and research on your part upstream: find out about the products that will suit you. Financially, I would advise against penny-pinching savings and products sold by tobacconists. I invite you to read this comparison of e-cigs for beginners published by the Electronic Cigarette R&D site, and you will understand that your investment will be rewarded with products that are not from the tobacco industry.
