Vaping is growing in popularity. It is a popular alternative method for smokers. If you are a smoker and are looking to kick the habit, you may want to consider vaping.
So how do you start vaping? After all, it does seem to be far more complicated than smoking a cigarette. It requires a vaping device, vaping pods, and follows a unique manner of consumption.
As a beginner, you are rightly confused about how vaping works.
That’s why I’ve put together this detailed guide on vaping for beginners. I’ll show you everything you need to understand about vaping and how to get started.
The Guide on Vaping for Beginners
So if you’d like to start vaping, I’ve got you covered.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Be Committed
You need to first understand that vaping is a commitment. If you have decided to quit smoking, then you will need to find a great method to stop your habit.
Vaping is such a habit. But vaping also requires commitment. If you begin vaping but do not commit to it, it is likely that you may start smoking again.
Make sure you have the time to vape on a regular basis. You also have to make sure that you have the budget to replenish your vaping device. When you do start vaping, commit to giving up cigarettes altogether.
Do not purchase a single cigarette. Instead, focusing on replenishing your vaping device with vaping liquid.
2. The Nicotine Level
The first step after you decided to try vaping, is to choose the nicotine level of your choice. The best way to determine what nicotine level is best for you is to be truthful about how much you currently consume through smoking.
Vaping liquids usually come in five nicotine levels: 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 milligrams. Choose the level that is closest to what you currently smoke. The ultimate goal is to bring your vaping as low as possible. So if you start at 24 milligrams, you should gradually lower your dose until you get to 3 milligrams.
If you are truly serious about quitting smoking and want to be as quick as possible, you can begin with a lower dose. You can aim for 3 milligrams, but 6 or 12 milligrams is often more realistic.
3. Choose Your Device
Now you are ready to choose your vaping device. You also have to consider your budget as vaping devices can range from $30 all the way to $200 and some even go above that price.
The standard vaping devices are small rectangular devices with an extended pipe for smoking. These are the most popular devices and will be the one best for most beginners.
However, if you wish to be discreet you may want to consider a smaller vaping device. There are several that look like cigarettes such as vape pens. These may be the best bet for you. The only thing to remember is that though vape pens are more affordable, they may have to be replaced quicker. Nevertheless, they are still a great option, and purchasing a vape pen battery is affordable.
4. Customize Your Device
If a standard vaping device or vape pen does not work for you at first, you may want to consider a customized device. Ultimately, a vape pen is best for reducing your vaping intake. But as a beginner, it may behoove you to use a custom vaping device.
You can customize a box mod device. This standard vaping device can be customized to hold greater amounts of liquid. They can also be made to be more powerful; this way they can provide you much greater flexibility in how you vape.
But, of course, this will greatly increase your budget. This would not be recommended for a vaping beginner. The only exception would be if you have not been able to adapt to a standard vaping device. Then, you may wish to start with a customized device and eventually work your way down to a vape pen.
Be sure to do your research on how you can customize your vaping device and how long it would last before committing to purchasing one.
5. Choose Your Liquid
The “vape” comes from a refillable liquid that you put in your vaping device. Once you have chosen your device and the nicotine level, you can choose the flavor of your choice.
Flavors can range from vanilla to cherry, to exotic flavors such as passion fruit. It doesn’t really matter what flavor you choose. I encourage you to try as many flavors as possible before you decide which is best suited for your tastes.
Usually, box mod type vaping devices (the standard device) can hold a higher amount of liquid. Vape pens generally hold a much lower amount of liquid. If you are trying to consume as little as possible, then you may also want to choose a liquid flavor that isn’t particularly strong or addictive for you.
6. More About Vaping
Vaping has really disrupted the smoking industry. Naturally, it has caught the attention of regulators. You need to be aware of the laws that exist in your jurisdiction before you start vaping.
In many jurisdictions, you may have to customize your vape device yourself or order one online. Physical stores may only be permitted to sell you a vape device as it is. It is also likely that the staff in a vaping shop may not be able to give you advice on vaping or how it may help you. This is all to adhere to regulatory standards. This is why it is imperative to do your research on your own.
You should always carry your ID card with you. You will have to prove that you are at least 21 years of age to purchase a vaping product. At many vaping shops, you may be able to test out a device and sample a vaping liquid.
Make sure you research your vaping devices and liquids before deciding on what your purchase.
