Making the Switch in 2019: Brief Tips for Newbie Vapers
As vaping continues to grow significantly in popularity, many current smokers will try it out. While some will continue on this path, there are others that quickly quit and return to those harmful cigarettes. But why is that?
Takes Time in The Beginning
Primarily, the issue is the short time spent trying it out. Like many other things in our lives, it takes time and effort to see results.
Switching to vaping from traditional, harmful tobacco cigarettes isn't as simple as it may seem. Your body gets used to everything that comes with smoking:
- Way It Smells
- Way It Tastes
- The Way in Which It Feels When Being Gripped
- The Harmful and Even Addicting Chemicals It Contains
Vaping is a better alternative as it provides you with the nicotine you crave. However, getting used to it will take some commitment. Factors such as how the vapor smells and how the throat hit feels for starters can determine how successful your vape sessions can be.
Since every smoker is different, there’s no one universal setup that’s ideal for everyone. Because of this, one of the hardest, and probably longest parts of switching entirely to vaping is discovering the setup that works best for your individual needs. This process entails finding the right device (electronic cigarette, vaporizer, mod or even pod system), vape tank, vape coils, battery, and last by not least, the e-liquids containing the proper nicotine level to keep you on the vaping path.
Your body will take some time to adjust to the change as well. One of the primary complaints from new vapers is coughing after taking a hit. This is typically a result of starting at too high of a nicotine level, not having enough air mixed in with the vapor, or not properly self-hydrating. It’s commonly suggested to start at a lower nicotine level and work your way up to what you need based off your smoking history. You may not have the right level at the start and some people will still supplement cigarettes during this time as it can take from a few days to a few weeks to get to the ideal nicotine level.
If you’re still having trouble at the lower levels, then drinking more water or purchasing a tank with the ability to adjust the amount of airflow can improve your experience. Also, the device you use can make a difference when it comes to the vape settings and different modes for how the unit will work.
The Payoff is There
Changing from your smoking lifestyle to the vape lifestyle will take time and effort as you search for your perfect setup. Don't be discouraged early on. Just keep working at it and eventually you'll be vaping up a storm!
