Vaping is one of the most efficient ways to kick off the habit of smoking. In general, it is considered to be the healthier smoking alternative. At the same time, it is far cheaper in the long run as compared to cigarettes. However, vapes with a 510 threaded battery will initially require you to invest anywhere in between $100 to $200 or more (depending on what you are buying).
In this regard, if you make the correct choices right from the start, you will save enough money. At the same time, it will also prevent you from a cigarettes relapse.
A beginners guide to vaping
As a beginner, you may have several questions regarding vaping. In this article, we aim to answer all of these questions. However, what you first need is a commitment to give up smoking.
Making a commitment
Well there are many people who smoke both cigarettes and vapes. However, when you start smoking a vape, quitting cigarettes will be much easier for you. By their design, cigarettes tend to deliver a heavy nicotine dose. In most people, when the cigarette ends, the brain has associated that point with enough nicotine in the bloodstream.
With vaping, though, things are very different. In vapes, there is an almost endless dose of nicotine. Hence, figuring out when it is enough might be difficult in the beginning. However, with time, the mind gets accustomed to it.
Nevertheless, if you have made the commitment of giving cigarettes up, stick with it. After all, cigarettes have a number of harmful effects and are the prime cause of throat cancer.
Choosing a nicotine level
The right level of nicotine would depend on certain factors. There are five different levels in e-juices. These include 3 mg, 6 mg, 12 mg, 18mg, and 24 mg. Furthermore, some e-juices have 0 mg of nicotine. However, we recommend new quitting smokers (those who are shifting from cigarettes to vapes) to stick with a standard level in the beginning. Do note that some trial and error may be required to figure out the correct level.
In case you are used to smoking more than one pack of cigarettes (20 cigarettes) in one day, you should start off with 18 mg at least. However, chain smokers often need to begin with 24 mg at least. It is recommended to start off low in the beginning. In case you end up with more nicotine in your bloodstream, you may have some trouble sleeping or similar symptoms.
Regulations by the FDA
Well, did you know? The FDA puts certain regulations of vapes and e-cigarettes? So before you begin, it is advised to take a look at the local laws. The employees on vape shops do not have the authority to provide you services other than just ‘selling’ the vapes. This means that if you want to customize your vape, you will have to do it yourself. So, we suggest you to begin with the basics first.
Moreover, based on the rules, you will not be able to sample the e-juices for free. So, when you go to the vape shop, take some cash with you along. Furthermore, also keep an ID card with you so that you can get your age verified (in case you do not look old enough).
Nowadays, vapes feature 510 thread batteries that are far more efficient and safe as compared to their previous counterparts. Hence, the prices of new vapes are slightly higher. Nevertheless, consider it as a one-time investment that will help you quit your smoking habit. Ultimately, you will save a lot in the long-run by letting go of those regular packs of cigarettes. Though, do conduct some basic research before you start with a vape.
