While a lot of people have a vague idea of what is vaping, the truth is that in order to engage in this act or replace your smoking habit with vaping, you may need to learn a thing or two about it. Right here we have the Ultimate Guide to Vaping to answer any of the questions you may have. Simply put, vaping is the act of inhaling a vapor made from the liquid that is heated in an electronic device or an electronic cigarette. Most commonly, this liquid contains flavor and nicotine, both of which are the very reason why so many people are doing it. So, now that you know exactly what you’re dealing with, here are a couple of other things to learn, as well as a brief comparison to its direct competitor – traditional cigarette smoking. Read on for the Ultimate Guide on Vaping.
1. A Cessation Device
While vaping may not be an ideal habit, it’s one of the most effective cessation devices that can help you quit smoking. Sure, the smoke that you’re inhaling still contains nicotine but as far as addictive substances go, vaping is quite lightweight. Now, while a lot of people may not be able to see the difference, there are some serious studies showing that vaping tends to be about 95 percent safer than smoking.
Why is this so? Well, first of all, when smoking a cigarette, you’re not just inhaling the nicotine that everyone is so concerned with. You’re also inhaling vapors that come from burning the paper container, the tar that holds it all together, as well as several other substances, all of which are even more harmful. In other words, vaping doesn’t make you inhale so many carcinogenic substances as a traditional cigarette does.
2. A boost to Self Esteem
Even if you were to permanently replace your smoking habit with a vaping habit (which is far more likely to work in the long-run), there are some immediate boosts that you would receive from this. First of all, vaping doesn’t cause bad breath as smoking does. Second, it doesn’t make your teeth, nails or mustache yellow. Keep in mind that all of these aren’t just aesthetic alterations but are things that may actively harm your self-esteem. In other words, regardless of the reason why you quit smoking and pick up vaping, there are some immediate benefits that you’ll get to experience.
3. More Cost Effective
Another massive advantage of vaping is the fact that, in the long run, it’s far more cost-effective than smoking. What this means is that when put next to each other, vaping consumes far less of your resources than smoking does. Sure, you need to pay for the initial device, which is a cost that you simply don’t have with smoking. Nonetheless, later on, when it comes to buying e liquid and mods, you get to save a fortune when compared to the equivalent in cigarettes. This is especially true if you have the right supplier on your side.
4. The Device Itself
By now, you might have started wondering how all of this works. Well, generally speaking, the device itself is fairly simple and it consists of three parts. It consists of the liquid, which contains all the necessary substances. The second part is the atomizer which is used to vaporize the liquid into vapor and the battery to power up the atomizer.
5. What is E-liquid?
The liquid in question is also referred to as e-liquid. The e-liquid itself is made from four different materials – the vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, nicotine and flavoring. The vegetable glycerin is a thick liquid that provides the vapor. This can be vaped on its own, even without any added ingredients. The propylene glycol is the flavor carrier, which is solely responsible for the throat hit that replicates smoking. The problem with this substance is the fact that some people may be allergic to it. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to find e-liquid without it. It’s also worth mentioning that the higher amount of propylene glycol gives more cloud production but may diminish the intensity of flavor.
The flavor is where it gets interesting, seeing as how it comes in the propylene glycol base and is the same type of flavoring that is used in food and candy. Lastly, we come to the nicotine which is mostly used for those who plan to transition from smoking to vaping. Fortunately, it’s not required or necessary for vaping. For those who do decide to go for a nicotine option, it’s important to mention that the strength depends on the liquid. It’s also important to mention that the nicotine level depends on how much you smoke and what kind of device you’re using.
6. What is Atomized?
The last thing we have to address is the question of the atomizer, which is a metal coil that is used to heat the liquid into vapor. Atomizers differ in strength and metal type (nickel, stainless steel, titanium, etc.). The variety of atomizers is vastly different and it may completely customize your style of vaping and your vaping experience. Other than differing in looks, they also differ in the method used.
As you can see, vaping is an incredibly interesting concept and there is a number of reasons why one would opt for it instead of smoking. In fact, you can even use it to gradually reduce the amount of nicotine that you consume until you completely eliminate your dependence on this substance. Still, even until this moment arrives, you get so much to look forward to and so much to consider. Thanks for reading the Ultimate Guide on Vaping.
