Quit Cigarettes And Start Vaping Today

Cigarettes are addictive, and that is an open fact. Most people, especially cigarette smokers, often find quitting extremely difficult. However, there are perfect strategies that you can employ to help you to top the bad habit. 

E-Cigarettes are like traditional cigarettes but with less adverse effects on your body.  Vaping gives you the same feeling you seek in regular cigarettes. However, these nifty gadgets are complicated, especially when you consider regular cigarettes.

E-Cigs are a whole science unto themselves. These devices are for one battery-powered. Whereas normal cigarettes simply need a match to light up. This fact alone can put off a lot of potential e-cig users. But their benefits outweigh those of regular cigarettes.

Without further ado, I’ll explain some simple steps you can follow before you can light up your first e-cigarette. Also, I’ll add in some really cool brands that you ought to consider in your vaping future. So here goes.

What Are E-Cigarettes?

Before going deeply into the whole e-cig world, you first have to know what they are. To put it simply, e-cigs are simply as their name goes, an electronic cigarette. But this is a broad term that puts them at the same level as standard cigarettes.

An e-cig is a vaporizer that looks similar to other cigarettes. Their mechanism is slightly different in that an ordinary cig burns through dried tobacco. The e-cig, on the other hand, vaporizes a special vape fluid. This fluid once heated, becomes vapor, which you can the smoke.

A vape pen or e-cig has three functioning parts; battery, an atomizer, and a cartridge. The cartridge houses the vape juice while the atomizer heats it to form a vapor. An e-cig battery simply powers the whole mechanism up.

What Kind Of Experience Do You Desire From Vaping?

Now that you know what e-cigarettes are, the next step is understanding the kind of sensations you can get from them.

Nevertheless, people are different, so what suits me might not suit you. Therefore, you might want to narrow down your expectations about vaping.

Here are a couple of questions you should consider before you can start vaping. Use them to get a better picture of what suits you:

  • Would you want a nicotine satisfaction or something stronger?
  • Would you consider trying out different flavors?
  • Do you want to smoke clouds or you’d rather keep things on the out of sight?
  • Would you want a device that makes an impression or just a functional one?

Pick Out Your Device

After you have checked out your preference from the questions above, you can now dive into selecting the right device. 

For those who want a discrete vaping experience, go for vape pens with high resistance coils. The coil is what heats your e-juice. High resistance coils use less power and smaller in size. This means they’ll fit in your pocket perfectly.

Low resistance wicks, on the other hand, are more power-hungry. However, they give off magnificent smoke clouds. Because of their power requirements, the tanks also tend to be larger as these coils vaporize more fluid as you take hits.

Select Your E-Liquid

The e-liquid is essentially what you vape on. They come in many flavours. Also, two essential elements constitute vaping juice but at varying levels. They are Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerin (VG).

PG rich liquids are rich in flavor, and you will really feel the vaping experience. On the other hand, vape fluids with high levels of VG are best suited for vapor production.

How Much Nicotine Should You Go For?

Another component you get in your e-juices nicotine. Now nicotine is often associated with cigarettes and is why they are addictive. If you have never smoked before, it would be wise to stick to juices with zero nicotine. But if you are leaving the traditional stick, then a higher nicotine level like 12mg/ml should work just fine.

e-juice flavors are why vape pens stand-out from the crowd. There are excellent flavors to choose from, and there is something for anyone. But when picking out a flavor, it generally boils down to what you like.

Finally, after you have gotten your brand new pen, make sure to read the instructions. After filling in the liquid, don’t light up right away but allow the liquid to soak in first to avoid ruining your coil.

Some excellent brands you can check out are SMOK Nord, Suorin, and Vaporesso. 

Finally, follow these steps and see how wonderful vaping can be. You will find it more enjoyable than smoking. Moreover, the flavors add a new way to enjoy your vape sessions. Remember, don’t limit yourself to just one, but try out a couple of them and see what you like.

Why Do E-Cigarettes Explode?

I’ve written a few times on this site about instances where an electronic cigarette exploded on their user. Sometimes it’s on their face when they’re taking a puff, other times it could be innocently in their pocket, or at times, it could be when it is plugged in and charging.

I had my own assumptions on what is causing these malfunctions, and for the most part, I believe it is due to non-recommended modifications being made to the vape devices. Or it could be using parts of different brands that are incompatible and trying to make them work together, creating a short circuit.

I read an article today on that went into more detail on what I thought was occurring and came away nodding my head in agreement. They posit that the problem is batteries, particularly lithium batteries. When left in pressurized areas, they can cause problems, which is why they need to be in carry-on bags instead of checked at an airport these days. When the pressure becomes too great, the seal is ruptured in the battery and leads to a hazard.

The article points to the weakness of the seal on the ends of the battery that leads to further risk. When the pressure builds up to the point of rupturing, it can lead to an explosion that can propel the component pieces due to the blast, “rocketing” away.

Beyond just pressure, these incidents can arise from overheating, whether it be due to outside elements like being left in direct sunlight, or in a hot car, or just being left on a charger too long as well as general malfunction due to shoddy craftsmanship or cheap materials. In addition, using a charger that is not meant for that particular device can be a great risk as they incompatibility can cause all sorts of problems.

So what can you do to minimize this risk? Inspect your batteries carefully and look for any defects or weaknesses. If there are any issues, discontinue use and get the battery fixed or replaced. Always be sure to use the charger that comes with your e-cig and don’t try to force another brand’s charger on it. And always be sure to check for overheating, don’t leave it on the charger forever, and keep it out of hot environments.

A little common sense and TLC will keep your batteries working in perfect condition and help avoid any of the mishaps we’ve been seeing in the news.

Does Vaping Really Lead to Cigarettes?

I read a nice article on today that talks about how the Center for Disease Control (CDC) tries to link vaping with an increase in smoking regular cigarettes. If you are a regular reader of this site, you know that I think that is a bunch of bull, and now there’s some more evidence to support my stance on that.

According to new data from the CDC, in 2015 there was a significant decrease in the amount of cigarette smoking teenagers, while at the same time there was a sharp increase in usage of vape products. That doesn’t seem to support the assertion that vaping is a gateway to cigarettes, in fact, it is showing quite the opposite. It goes on to say that cigarette smoking among high schoolers is actually the lowest it has been in 24 years. Incredible! It seems that vapes are an alternate to cigs, and not a conduit to them.

Cigarette use dropped from 36% in 1997 to less than 11% in 2015. That’s a heck of a drop. What could be the cause in this shift? If you ask me, it’s tobacco alternatives such as vapes. They’re putting down their traditional pack of smokes, and picking up a vaporizer instead. Yes, you can argue that they are replacing one vice with another, but I am in the school of thought that while it is too early to call e-cigarettes completely safe, there is enough evidence out there to call them a much safer alternative. Given the choice, I know which one I would rather put in my body.

While there were limitations to the study that was conducted, and I’d like to see more conclusive and further reaching analysis, the quick synopsis from what was gathered can only be interpreted to say that in fact vapes are not leading to more traditional tobacco cigarette use. What do you think? Has vaping been a catalyst for you to use cigs, or is it quite the opposite? For me I know the answer – once I picked up an e-cigarette years ago I haven’t looked back to my old pack of Marlboros, and I have no desire to ever go back to those!

Huffington Post Faces Backlash on E-Cig Video

I was checking out the other day and came across a hilarious takedown of HuffPo after they had posted, and later edited and retracted. The video interviews Dr. Margaret Cuomo, sister of Governor Andrew Cuomo, and is full of inaccurate statements about the safety and health risks of electronic cigarettes.

Chief among those inaccuracies is the statement that electronic cigarettes are just as bad, if not worse, than traditional tobacco cigarettes. This led to a huge public outcry in the comments and social media, as the all the reasoning that was given in the video has been proven otherwise. Scientific studies have shown that while there are toxicants in electronic cigarettes, they are found at much lower levels than are found in regular cigarettes.

The video talks about all the different ingredients found in e-cigs, and is wildly inaccurate there as well. One of them mentioned is tin, a statement that was later retracted after someone corrected them, and changed to zinc.

Another issue is the mention of formaldehyde. While possible for it to be present in e cigarettes, the e cig would have to be turned up at an abnormally high power to the point where the user gets a “dry puff”, an instance that typically doesn’t happen.

Cuomo also talks about all the “cancer-causing agents”, saying that there is a risk for lung cancer as well as other kinds of cancer such as liver cancer. This is pretty ridiculous. The amount of cancer-causing agents in regular cigarettes trumps the traces found in e cigs, they’re not in any way on the same level.

Anyway, you can read the article for more detail, as it does a much better takedown of all the inconsistencies than I include in my summary here. It’s a pretty interesting read. Just another case of someone spouting off on their soapbox, taking a stand against something they clearly know nothing about. Hopefully they continue to be put in their place when these kinds of hack jobs come up again.
