Are you a person who used to smoke, leaving you now needing an alternative for your nicotine intake? Maybe, instead, you just want to try out the new vaping trend? Either way, there are some things which you must consider in order to take up vaping.

Vaping is often considered a healthier alternative to smoking as well as a long-term saving because it is a cheaper alternative to smoking, too, although it can cost quite a bit as an initial investment.

Below are some questions with detailed answers which will help you get started with vaping…

How much nicotine intake is there in e-cigarettes?

As a result of the design of cigarettes, they produce a fairly regular supply of nicotine. However, it is suggested that vaping supplies a larger dose of nicotine. This is as a result of vaping with a tank which allows you to vape a lot more nicotine in any one sitting.

It can be difficult to gauge when to stop vaping and when you have had enough nicotine without the mental cue of the butt end of the cigarette to stop you.

How can I choose the correct amount of nicotine for me?

This depends on a variety of factors, including how much nicotine you are used to – or how many cigarettes you used to smoke per day – as well as how much you wish to intake on a day-to-day basis.

Vaping typically is available in 5 different levels – 3, 6, 12, 18 and 24mg – as well as zero-nicotine levels too. For example, if you are used to smoking approximately one pack of cigarettes a day, it is recommended that you choose nicotine levels of 12 to 18mg for your vaping tank.

Are there any modifications available for my new e-cigarettes?

Depending on what you require from your new e-cigarette, there is a wide variety of modifications which you can add in order to achieve the desired look or anything else you require while vaping.

For example, if discretion is necessary while you are vaping, modifications such as shisha pens which look similar to cigarettes are available to purchase. With these types of e-cigarettes, you insert a disposable end onto the vape pen and disposing of the whole thing once you are done with it.

Vaping companies such as Pure E-Liquids stock many different e-cigarettes such as herb vaporisers, short fills, e-cigarette kits and shisha pens.

Do some modifications provide different levels of nicotine?

The short answer to this is yes. Depending on the modification which you decide to choose, the nicotine levels can vary dramatically between the different devices. For example, smaller vaping pens provide much less nicotine than larger, tank-filled e-cigarettes.

It can be argued that the larger the production of smoke from your chosen e-cigarettes, typically, the more nicotine is produced as well.


Hopefully, this quick guide on how to get started on vaping has answered some of the questions you need to know before you invest in your new e-cigarette.
