Nicotine is an addictive chemical.
Just like before vaping, people were choosing the right e-cigarette to smoke. Today when using an e-cigarette, vapors also have to choose the appropriate nicotine strength.
When you are switching over from traditional cigarettes, you want to switch to an e-liquid that matches their strength. Just as some traditional cigarettes can be too strong or too weak to satisfy, e-cigarettes are the same. It’s recommended that newcomers begin with 18mg (the best match to traditional cigarettes), and a good level for coming off cigarettes. There are however, many levels of nicotine, so people can have a choice about their nicotine intensity.
The nicotine level will have an impact on how your e-cigarette performs. To be more specific, we’re referring to the 'throat hit'. In terms of the 'throat hit', it’s recommended that people vaping on 18mg nicotine strength, jump either to the next level down (12mg) or maybe the next level up (24mg).
When a person's body is used to receiving a specific amount of nicotine, a lighter replacement than what it's used to will cause them to engage in 'compensation smoking'. They smoke more in order to get the missing nicotine that their body is craving.
On the flip side of that coin, when a person is used to smoking a light tobacco cigarette, and then selects a full-strength e-liquid, the body will receive too much nicotine and they can become light-headed. They might even decide that e-cigarettes are not for them. However, their problem is in the strength, not the e-cigarette itself.
Smokers who are able to experiment and finally find the 'right spot' in their nicotine strength are happy and in love with their e-cigarettes.
Some people want to get off nicotine altogether. They need to begin by matching their e-cigarette strength to the strength of their current cigarettes. From there, they can gradually reduce the strength, and in time they can get off nicotine once and for all. Eventually, they can be going through the rituals of smoking, but the nicotine will be absent. It's a good way to wean themselves off nicotine.
There are some who find it really hard to quit smoking their traditional cigarettes even if they are vaping. Others quit the very day they begin to vape. They should not worry about this and understand that sometimes people have to get used to e-cigarettes slowly. They can replace them at a rate that is comfortable to them, as they test out the e-cigarette to find the right strength for their bodies to feel satisfied.
