Introduction To Vaping
Whether you've just been introduced to e-cigarettes and vaping and are looking to kick your smoking habit, or if you've been vaping for years, the vape experts at The Vapor Shoppe have put together a Vaping 101 guide to help you vape safely.
What is Vaping?
Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling the aerosol, often referred to as vapor, which is produced by an e-cigarette or similar device. The term is used because e-cigarettes do not produce tobacco smoke, but rather an aerosol, often mistaken for water vapor, that actually consists of fine particles.
How do vaping devices work?
All vaping devices work in the same fundamental way: A battery powers a coil heating element that turns a liquid solution known as e-liquid into an aerosol. Different devices apply these principals in differing ways - and it’s surprising just how many variants have been created from such a simple concept!
Why should I vape?
Can I vape anywhere?
Nevertheless, it’s wise not to assume that you can vape anywhere just because it’s not illegal. Premises owners are entitled to prohibit vaping on their property, and many do.
Is vaping right for me?
What are PG or VG liquids?
What e-liquids should I get?
What strength e-liquid should I buy?
There are two basic styles of vaping. We call this “NO/VO” and you can read all about it.
Put simply, some vapers prefer a stronger nicotine eliquid but on a lower powered device, whereas others prefer less nicotine but on a more powerful device. And some people are somewhere in the middle!
Also, vapers differ in how much nicotine they need, and how much they want to vape overall. So, if you want to vape less, use a stronger e-liquid, if you find you’re getting too much nicotine from the amount you like to vape, move to a less strong liquid.
Can I save money over smoking?
How much cigarettes or tobacco costs where you live.
The amount you spend on devices (this becomes a hobby for many!)
That said, with a good setup you should be able to save considerable amounts of money, and the more focused on saving money by vaping you are, the more you will save.
What should I look for when choosing a vaping device?
However, do make sure you consider this: You will always want to have a device charged up and to hand. The biggest mistake new vapers make is forgetting that you need time to charge up a vape once it’s gone flat, and this can be frustrating. Keep a backup!
Can I quit smoking by vaping?
It is impossible to say whether YOU can quit smoking by vaping. The only thing we can say with certainty is that there are many people who are known to have quit smoking by substituting with vaping.
Whether you will be one of those people depends on a few factors, such as how motivated you are, how much effort you make finding a device that works for you, and how much you find you enjoy vaping to being with. The only way to find out is to try!
