The Basics for Making the Transition from Cigarette Smoking to Vaping
Smoking causes many health risks and can cause deadly harm to your body in the future. Many smokers are turning to vaping as a healthier alternative to tobacco smoke. Quitting cigarettes can be one of the hardest challenges.
Here are some tips to successfully make the transition from smoking to vaping:
Tip #1: Find the Suitable Nicotine Level
E-liquids for the device of your choosing come in a variety of nicotine levels: 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, 18mg, 24mg, and even 36mg. Many smokers state that 12mg-18mg is a sufficient amount of nicotine to gradually wean yourself off cigarettes. After quitting regular cigarettes, many vapers find it easy to use smaller concentrations of nicotine.
Tip #2: Avoid Cigarettes
Traditional cigarettes can be very addicting, both mentally and physically. The plain sight of a cigarette can sometimes make you want to smoke. Much of the battle is having the mental stamina to fight your urges. Many people consider quitting to be just as hard as getting off other types of harmful substances. Similar tactics are used during the quitting process; stay away from people, places, and things. Avoid smokers or outlets where cigarettes are available. If you choose not to throw away your cigarettes, store them in a place far away from plain view. This will help you avoid temptations to start chain smoking again. Note: Constantly switching back and forth between vaping and smoking can limit the effectives of vaping, and could possibly increase your nicotine cravings, resulting in you going back to smoking full time.
Tip #3: Different Flavors
Enjoy the benefits of vaping and don't be afraid explore your new hobby. At first, vaping won't appeal as much as regular smoking since there are many additional additives added to a cigarette. Trying the assortment of flavorful e-juices that DJC has to offer will distract your urges. Vaping only one flavor is boring and you will find yourself sick of the one flavor after repeated use. Getting what’s called vaper’s tongue is no fun. There are a variety of flavors to pick from; fruit, dessert, and simulated tobacco leaf.
Tip #4: Understand the Benefits of Vaping
Vaping isn’t risk-free; however, it is proven to be a better alternative than smoking cigarettes. Many will argue that vaping is just as harmful if not more; but these accusations have been proven to be false.
- Vaping is convenient; there are still public places which allow smoking in undesignated areas and indoors. Avoid having to go outside constantly is the benefit there.
- Vaping is a more courteous way to get your cravings satisfied when you are around other people.
- The vapor doesn’t stick to the walls and is nowhere near as harmful to breathe in. Also, no tar and no ash.
- Since it is water vapor, rather than a thick cloud of smoke from burning paper; it evaporates quickly.
Extra Note: With a wide range of devices out there, from electronic cigarettes to MODs, to the tanks and coils they come with, being able to vape has become not just easier, but a more balanced way to be able to transition away from smoking those traditional cigarettes.
Quitting is never easy; by following these tips, it’ll become easier for you to make the positive change from smoking to vaping. Following a successful transition, you will quickly start to see the benefits and hopefully eliminate the cravings for a cigarette.
