Making the switch from smoking to vaping can seem daunting, but with the right tools and knowledge, it can be a smooth transition. In this blog post, we will discuss the basics of making the switch, including the types of vaping devices and eliquid flavors available, as well as the benefits of making the switch.
Know the difference between smoking and vaping.
Smoking has many negative effects on the body that can lead to lung cancer and death. When you smoke, the nicotine in cigarettes is absorbed through your lungs and enters your bloodstream. From there, it goes to your brain where it triggers a release of dopamine, which creates that “feel-good” sensation.
With vaping, it’s very different. The nicotine is absorbed through your mouth and throat and enters your bloodstream more slowly than when you smoke. This means that the “kick” from vaping is not as intense as smoking, and some people find that they need to vape more often to get the same amount of nicotine. But this is beneficial if you’re making a switch; if you get used to a lower amount of “kick”, you can reduce your smoking use and your reliance on nicotine.
Another difference between smoking and vaping is the way they are both delivered. When you smoke a cigarette, the tobacco burns and produces tar and other harmful chemicals which are inhaled into your lungs. With vaping, there is no combustion involved so there is no burning or production of tar. This means that vapers are exposed to far fewer harmful chemicals than smokers.
Use eLiquid with your electronic cigarettes and vape devices.
eLiquid, also known as ejuice or vape juice, is the liquid that is used in electronic cigarettes and vape devices. It is made up of four primary ingredients: propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, nicotine, and flavorings. Of these ingredients, propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin are the two main components, reducing the amount of nicotine a vaper ingests. Eliquid comes in a variety of flavors and nicotine levels to suit the individual’s needs.
Its main benefits are that eliquid releases the amount of tobacco product that a former smoker ingests; being able to gradually change the amount of nicotine in your vape juice makes quitting the addictive chemical a gradual process; you can quit your addictive habit with each inhale.
Experiment with the different flavors and devices.
If something tastes good, we as humans are more likely to find pleasure in it. The benefit of eliquid is that it comes in different flavors like strawberry, cinnamon, or sweet watermelon. You can pick your favorite flavor or choose a new flavor as you continue your journey. There are endless flavor options available, so finding your favorite should be easy.
When you’ve got your favorite flavor, the next thing to experiment with is devices. If the device suits your tastes, you’ll be more likely to use it. So, the next step is to decide what type of device you are using. There are three types of devices: cigalikes, vape mods, and Vapers. Cigalikes look and feel like traditional cigarettes and use disposable cartridges filled with eliquid. Vape mods allow for more control over the device and can include features such as variable wattage and temperature control. Vapers are larger devices that allow for sub-ohm vaping which produces more vapor than other devices.
Gradually reduce your nicotine levels to make the switch.
Gradually reducing your nicotine intake is a key step in making the switch from smoking to vaping. This allows you to perform the necessary actions to quit smoking, which means you can wean yourself off nicotine gradually. This makes the switch from smoking to vaping a less difficult process and helps to avoid any potential withdrawal symptoms.
Most eliquids come in either 30ml, 60ml, 100ml, or 120ml nicotine levels. If you are switching from smoking cigarettes that contain 16mg or higher of nicotine, you can start with a higher nicotine level and decrease to a lower nicotine level eliquid until your body becomes accustomed to not having tobacco products inhaled into your lungs every day.
When it comes to quitting smoking, this can be difficult because of its addictive nature. However, this can be fixed and alleviated by making the switch from smoking to vaping. Save your lungs and your future by making the switch.
