Firstly, Vaping is not Smoking!
Vaping is intended for current adult smokers , that wish to continue enjoying their nicotine habit at a reduced risk.
Vaping utilizes a Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin based liquid, mixed with small amounts of nicotine and food grade flavoring that then get vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer, Simulating the experience of smoking. The vapor created is inhaled and exhaled much like cigarette smoke hence the term “VAPING” as opposed to “SMOKING”
Vaping is not proven 100% safe. Although there are now more promising studies out there like theClearstream study, and IVAQS. Certainly feel free to do your own homework regarding things like PG / VG and nicotine and decide for yourself if vaping is a road you want to go down.
Additionally while not categorized as a carcinogen nicotine is still essentially a poison and can increase blood pressure and heart rate in humans. So please be careful and use at your own risk.
e-cigs come in all shapes and sizes ranging from cigarette looking devices , to larger more powerful devices like the ProVari.
These larger devices use a bigger battery, and a bit more care and know-how regarding their operation. They also look nothing like a cigarette, which as you will find, the more your device looks like a cigarette, the less performance and satisfaction you will get out of it.
I feel like a good place to start is with a device called the EGO, it’s a more compact size, but still offers a good battery life. There are variations of the Ego battery as well. A good place to start is with a Variable Voltage Battery, Pair those with the simple to use EVO tank and you will be vaping in no time. Be sure to get an Ego charger and some liquid as well.
Liquid is generally catagorized in “milligrams” of nicotine. Ranging from 0mg up to 18mg, stronger nicotine will create a stronger throat sensation that is commonly referred to as “throat hit”. It’s up to the user to decide how much nicotine they want to use. I would suggest starting low, and working your way up to a level that will satisfy your nicotine cravings.
The world of vaping can be confusing and overwhelming for new people not sure where to place their foot. Trust me when I say that we have all been there. Look around at a few products. Watch some review videos. Think about what you want your device to look like, and feel like. Think about battery life, size and form factor. There is no wrong way to vape. If you vape here and there, but still feel the need for a cigarette, DON’T FEEL BAD ABOUT THAT. Quitting smoking is literally one of the hardest things you will ever do, but stick with it. I promise you that vaping is a very rewarding experience, and makes the transition away from tobacco that much easier.
Best of luck, and let me be the first to congratulate you on taking the first step toward getting away from tobacco.
