Many people feel trapped when they are smokers, as giving up the habit is challenging. Nicotine is a highly addictive substance, and many people struggle to give it up, especially when going cold turkey. However, there are many excellent aids you can use to help make quitting smoking a much more manageable task, and vaping is a popular choice for many people. Below are some tips to help you start vaping, give up smoking cigarettes for good, and take back control of your life.
Selecting A Vaping Device
You will need to consider what type of vaping device you will use, and there are plenty of options available. As you do not know whether you will like vaping and stick with it, you do not want to spend too much money on equipment at first. Instead, you are best to get a starter kit with everything you need to begin vaping. You can get decent starter kits for anywhere between £10-20, so plenty of affordable options are available. Once you are satisfied that you can swap vaping for smoking and enjoy the experience, you can enhance it by upgrading your vaping device and customising your vaping experience.
The Correct Type Of Vape Juice
When you look at the various types of vape juice you can buy, you will see they all have a PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerine) ratio. You will need to select the correct type of vape juice for your vaping device, and you can use ones with a 50/50 ratio in most vapes. However, the ones with a higher VG concentration will need a sub-ohm vape to use, and this is ideal for people looking to do some cloud chasing and blow massive plumes of vape smoke.
The Nicotine Strength Of The Vape Juice
You will also need to consider when you first start vaping the nicotine strength of the vape liquid you will use. You can get it in various nicotine strengths from 0mg to 20mg+ of nicotine, and the more cigarettes you used to smoke, the stronger the nicotine level you want to use. If you were smoking a pack of cigarettes daily, you would need to start with 20mg of nicotine and slowly reduce the dosage, weaning yourself off your nicotine addiction. You can then decide whether to give up vaping entirely or continue vaping with 0mg of nicotine vape juice.
A Choice Of Flavours
One thing that attracts many people to vaping is the volume of different available flavours. There is lots of choice of flavours available for vape juice, with some pretty obscure flavours including tuna, black pepper, and garlic. There are six primary flavour categories, which are:
- Tobacco Flavours
- Menthol Flavours
- Drink Flavours
- Dessert Flavours
- Candy Flavours
- Fruit Flavours
You will want to try several flavours until you find a few that you like and then rotate these, so your tastebuds do not get too used to them. Choosing flavours that you enjoy can help enhance your vaping experience and ensure it is a pleasurable one for you. It will also give you the best chance of sticking with vaping and living your life smoke-free.
