If you’re new to vaping, you might be a little confused as where to start. With dozens of delivery devices and flavors, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the options. While your favorite flavor is bound to be subjective, if you’re trying to cut down on (or cut out) smoking conventional cigarettes, it’s crucial to use e-liquid with the right amount of nicotine. Too little and you’ll find yourself still craving, too much and you might find yourself increasing your nicotine intake. Never fear, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide for picking the nicotine level that’s just right for you.
1. How Much Do You Smoke Now?
No two smokers are exactly the same. How much you smoke (and whether you smoke light, extra light, or regular cigarettes) is a key indicator as to what nicotine level will give you the best experience in an e-cigarette. Check out the table below to see where you should start.
|Non-smoker but still want to vape||0mg|
|Just a few cigarettes a day||0mg – 6mg|
|Half a pack a day||6mg|
|More than half but less than a full pack||12mg|
|Pack a day||18mg|
|Pack and a half||24mg|
|2 or more packs||24mg-36mg
2. Adjusting Your Level
By smoking every day, you’ve calibrated your body to a certain level of nicotine. If you select a concentration in your e-liquid that is below this threshold, you’ll have a difficult time getting real satisfaction from your vaping experience. This might have you vaping constantly or, unfortunately, going back to conventional cigarettes. On the other hand, using an e-liquid with too high a nicotine level can result in headaches, dizziness and a harsh throat hit. Using an e-liquid with too much nicotine has turned off many new vapers–don’t make the same mistake! Finding that ‘just right’ nicotine level will give you a satisfaction on par with smoking conventional cigarettes–and give you the best chance of leaving your life of smoking behind.
3. Weaning Yourself
Once you’ve zeroed in on your perfect level, you may decide to gradually wean yourself off nicotine altogether. With Pink Spot Vapors, you can customize your purchase with specific nicotine levels from 36mg all the way down to 0mg. This flexibility makes kicking the habit hassle-free and even fun.
