I used vaping to quite smokes. I'll try and put it all together for ya with out making it an 5 page essay. A buddy got a crew of like 5 of us to try it, far as i know we are all still not smoking, couple still vaping. I've been smoke free 5 years I think now. I was a 1-1.5 pack a day newports, and over night fishing trips required me taking a carton along. 10 months later I was smoke/vape/nicotine free.
What I did was I started to vape to try it, not to quit smoking. I alternated between the vape and a smoke. After two days I did not want a smoke as the taste was horrible after trying the vape. A cigarette was like licking an ashtry. Ejuice can be in just about any flavor. Go into a local vape shop and there will be hundreds of samples for you to try. I've been hours in a shop sampling. BUT keep in mind samples taste different from what you buy because the samples are nic free. So ejuice with nic will be slightly off, but not a whole lot.
First thing is its not for everyone. Some people have a reaction to ejuice. My brother in law coughs horribly from it with a throat irritation. After not vaping for a couple months, I get a soar on my gums if I try to vape now, but did not when I started vaping while smoking. Just be aware of that and don't drop 200 bucks into it with out trying cheaply first.
The kids you see hanging out on the corner blowing smoke like a freight train are "cloud chasing" and it does not have to be like that, but you'll probably get there as most do.
There are vaping set ups and there are ecigarettes. Avoid the ecigarettes. Vaping is cheaper/easier and the directions to go with it are unlimited.
OK, vaping,,, start out with something that is a cheap set up knowing you will upgrade very quickly if you take to it. You should be able to walk away as a starter for 20-30 bucks. Thats what my buddy told me,,, do you have 30 bucks to change your life?
Stop into a local vape shop and just talk to the crews there. All shop I have been into everyone is extremely friendly and helpful AND they actually want you to quit analog cigarettes too.
For vaping you have a tank that your ejuice goes into. In that tank you have coils that bo bad over time and have to be replaced. The tank goes onto a battery device to fire the coil which makes it glow red hot and vaporizes the ejuice that you inhale.
I really like the aspire brand of tanks and coils. But it all comes down to preference of one over the other. They are priced nice and the coils are cheap. Get set up locally and then shop online for best deals.
Local shop will help determine your proper nicotine level to start at vs how much you smoke. Nicotine levels are totally adjustable. 10 mg nic level ejuice mixed 1/1 with 0 mg ejice will give you 5 mg and so forth. The math can get heavy but yo can pretty much make any mg strength you want buy mixing with lower strengths.
I started vaping at like 18mg nic. I did that for a month then dropped to 15mg, then after some time 12 mg then 9, 6, 3, 1.5, .75, .50 then 0. Took me 10 months to drop to zero. When I dropped a nic level I vaped like crazy at first for the nicotine, but your body will adjust after a couple days and smooth back out, then another week or two later I would drop again.
Two weeks after I hit zero mg nic, I lost interest in vaping all together. Not once have I fiend for a smoke, not once have I had an urge to smoke, NOT ONCE have I ever wanted to smoke again.
Try it out,,,,, Do you have 30 bucks to change your life?
