Can you think of an easier way to quit smoking cigarettes then switching to a healthy way to smoke? Everything you love about cigarettes is improved on by electronic cigarettes. I share what happened to me each step of the way below.
I would have quit years ago if I would have known how easy it really is.
What is Covered
Let’s think about all the things you love about cigarettes. If there is something I missed here tell me in the comments below.
Instant Satisfaction ( Relieve Stress )
1. You get the same quick Nicotine hit in an electronic cigarette
2. You can smoke E Cigs pretty much any place unlike regular cigarettes (Even Most Airports)
3. Nicotine levels from 8 mg to 28 mg are available to fit your preferences
4. I never felt a need to smoke physically from day one. (Throw your regular cigarettes out and rely on the E Cig)
1. The same appetite suppressant Nicotine is in an electronic cigarette
2. An electronic cigarette decreases a persons food intake, speeds up the metabolism, etc. in the same way as a regular cigarette
3. I didn’t think I would, but I feel in love with the flavors which seem to suppress hunger even more
1. There are numerous E Cig options available that simulate just about every way you smoke
2. If you want resistance, a smooth draw, or anything in between you can find it
1. After a few days you’ll be able to breath normally again which is amazing
2. There are hundreds of different flavors available. It may take some time to find your favorites, but you’ll find them
3. You will be able to find an amazing flavor that you love no matter what it is. It is hard to simulate the taste of tobacco, but there are flavors that come darn close. After a short period of time almost everyone gladly tries different flavors.
Burn in the Back of your Throat
1. An E Cig easily can burn your throat in exactly the same way
1. If you want an E Cig that looks exactly like a cigarette you can find it. I don’t use them, but the NJOY King looks and feels exactly like a regular cigarette
2. I know I would have been eternally grateful if a friend had turned me on to E Cigs
This is exactly what happened to me when I quit.
I stopped using regular cigarettes half way through the day when I received my E Cigarette by mail. A few things surprised me when I first tried it.
As per whether I wanted a cigarette. I constantly found myself looking for one in my pants out of habit. I also kept having the thought go through my mind that I wanted to compare them, but thankfully I didn’t. I threw out all my cigarettes at the end of the day to keep myself from going back to them.
The only desire I had for a regular cigarette felt more like the need to follow a habit then like a physical withdrawal. Every time I felt this need to follow the habit I went for the E Cigarette instead. After I threw out my regular cigarettes and this need went away.
Special Note: Over 2 months and I’m still going strong. I’ll never go back.
How Did I Feel at the End of the Day?
My wheezing was completely gone by the night. I still felt that my lung capacity was limited, but it felt better. When I first started with the E Cig I coughed as much as with a regular one, but this went away by the next day for the most part. I woke up the next day and didn’t start off with my normal morning cough 🙂
After 1 Week Without Regular Cigarettes
I could walk up hills without losing my breath. I felt absolutely amazing to say the least! Every smoker has to try these!!!
I did a TON of research before I made a decision. I ultimately decided to buy the Apollo Superior eGo Kit ( I Later Changed to another that I preferred ). I wanted the Halo Triton, but it wasn’t available at the time.
I was surprised by the draw and just about everything. The E Juice I bought with it was good, but it felt a bit powdery? I really couldn’t say anything bad about the Apollo.
I also tried an NJOY at the same time and while it was ok I didn’t continue with it mainly because of the price. They are very expensive in comparison to about $30 a month for the tank systems.
My Second Vaporizer
I really wanted to get this to work, so I also purchased an Joye eGo-C battery with a iClear 16 Dual Coil Clearomizer. This setup was highly recommended to me by some people that I considered to be experts. As far as I have seen the Joye eGo-C is the most popular E-Cigarette / Vaporizer.
It arrived a few days later and it was even more amazing! It allowed me to change the voltage from 3.2V to 4.8V. This was great because I could find the heat and vapor level that worked best for me.
Ultimately I now use this set up and I’m 100% happy:
The batteries last for years. The Clearomizer heads go bad every few months from what I have seen. You can buy a replacement head for about $3.
Everyone likes different flavors. The following is just my opinion.
I just picked the E Juice that received the best reviews on the sites. I was very satisfied with the Apollo Classic Tobacco, but after the first couple days I wanted to try some different ones. Like I said before it tasted like mocha / cotton candy? I didn’t think I’d like something like that, but I did in the beginning.
Formula 51 1.8% Nicotine Tobacco : I didn’t like this as much actually because I thought it tasted too much like burnt tobacco.
Alt Liquid RY4 : A little like the Apollo E Juice I received. I really like this juice even though it is cheap for some reason?
Bunch of Halo E Juices : I have enjoyed Halo juices. The Tribeca is particularly good.
Alien Visions E Juices : In my opinion, this is the best E Juice manufacturer period. Boba’s Bounty is hands down the best juice I have ever tried. Havana Gold is the second best. Blend 4 is also amazing.
Many people rave about Gorilla Juice. I think it is ok, but it definitely tastes like bananas so if you’re into that give it a try.
Vaperite E Juice: They have a bunch of top flight desert juices. They are high quality, but very intense. I particularly love their VR4. If you like butterscotch then give it a try. It is quite good.
What I didn’t like: I’m not going to name names, but I was grossed out by a number of juices that taste like bubble gum. In my opinion if you hear something described as bubble gum stay away!
Once you start getting into vaping it is very important that you use the right voltage if you have a variable voltage vaporizer. Here is a chart I use to find the right voltage. (Click it to enlarge).
This normally confuses everyone in the beginning, but lets say you have a Kanger ProTank that has a resistance of 2.5 Ohms Ω. Look for your resistance on the chart and if it isn’t there pick the next lowest resistance. In this case pick 2.4 Ohms. Now follow the green colored part of the chart to find the recommended watts. Drift your finger up to the top and you’ll find the recommended volts which would be between 3.20 to 4.50 Volts.
It is important to stay in that area unless you want to burn your E Juice or destroy the coil.
E Juice contains the following substances
A scientific study was done on the long term effects of inhaled nicotine. Here are the findings from a 2 year study.
“For the first time we report the effect on the rat of long-term (two years) inhalation of nicotine. The rats breathed in a chamber with nicotine at a concentration giving twice the plasma concentration found in heavy smokers. Nicotine was given for 20 h a day, five days a week during a two-year period.”
“We could not find any increase in mortality, in atherosclerosis or frequency of tumors in these rats compared with controls. Particularly, there was no microscopic or macroscopic lung tumors nor any increase in pulmonary neuroendocrine cells.”
“Throughout the study, however, the body weight of the nicotine exposed rats was reduced as compared with controls. In conclusion, our study does not indicate any harmful effect of nicotine when given in its pure form by inhalation.”
Propylene Glycol and/or Vegetable Glycerin
Both of the above are used in many food products. Because its low chronic oral toxicity, propylene glycol was classified by the U. S. Food and Drug Administration as “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS) for use as a direct food additive.
Numerous animals were administered 50 to 700 times the amount of glycol the animals could absorb by breathing air saturated with the propylene glycol.This study failed to reveal any differences between the animals kept in glycolized air and those living in the ordinary room atmosphere.
These flavors are usually the same flavoring used to flavor food and candies.
So, that is a basic run down of what you may want to know about E Cigarettes / Vaporizers. This is without a doubt the easy way to quit smoking.
If you have any other questions leave them below and I’ll do my best to help. I’ll gladly cover more about how the E Cigarettes work if anyone is interested. I could cover the difference between cartomizers and drip atomizers. I could go into ohms and volts and why that matters. I’m very happy to help in any way when you want to kick that habit.
