Vaping came into this world as an alternative to smoking, which is undoubtedly cancerous to health. Over the years, the vaping industry has evolved, and now not only it is a way to quit smoking but also a hobby that does not deteriorate your health like alcohol or cigarettes. Other than that, cigarettes are harmful not only because of the tar but the nicotine as well. We know that nicotine is an addictive chemical, and it can cause health concerns if used excessively. We also know that vapes reduce health concerns by eliminating the tar factor, however, nicotine is still there. What most people do not know is that vaping can also prove helpful in gradually reducing and ultimately eliminating nicotine from your life. We are going to discuss how you can move towards a nicotine-free life with vaping.
MAKE A COMMITMENT
If you have switched from smoking to vaping, then it means that you already care deeply for your health, and that’s why you took the step. If not, you need to sit down and think about how you are destroying your health with all the smoke. Whether you have switched to vaping or not, your first step should be to make a commitment to yourself that you will reduce the nicotine strength. We recommend switching to vaping because you can actually control the quantity of nicotine you take in through vaping. Once you have decided, stick to it and do not waver under pressure. You can set up accountability checks on yourself by involving your spouse, your friends and your family in the process.
THE STEP-DOWN APPROACH
According to this method, you need to slowly cut down on your nicotine intake. Some people reduce it every week, some every day, while others reduce it month by month. It all depends upon your pace. Disposable vapes pods do come in variable nicotine strengths, but they do not have the flexibility as compared to mod kits or starters kits. One of the best ways is to use nicotine-free e-juice, which comes with nicotine shots such as Kilo Shortfill 100ml, so you can choose the strength according to your preference. Another benefit of choosing such an e-juice is that you can gradually reduce it to zero and can just simply vape for the taste.
DILUTING THE JUICE
If your favourite e-juice is not available in a variety of nicotine levels, then you must be thinking that you cannot cut down on nicotine because there is no other flavour that will compare to what you love. When there is a will, there is a way. If you have made a commitment to yourself, then you will be able to switch to other flavours with lower nicotine content. In case you cannot, you can still enjoy your favourite flavour by diluting it and reducing the nicotine content in it. Some vapers use VG (vegetable glycerin) to dilute their e-juice and naturally reduce nicotine strength. Others use zero-nicotine e-juices like Kilo Shortfill 100ml to dilute their e-juice. If you do not want to mix another e-juice in your flavour, then simply adding in more VG will do the job.
USING SUB-ohm VAPES
Sub-ohm vapes use a coil with a resistance lower than 1 ohm. This lower resistance means that more liquid is used to draw clouds since the coil does not get hot enough to produce more clouds. When inhaling through sub-ohm vapes, a person needs to draw in more liquid with each inhale, so it gives an enhanced flavour. Since you need to draw in more liquid because of the low resistance, the nicotine content in the e-liquid needs to be low. So if you switch to sub-ohm vaping, you will be able to reduce the nicotine intake quite considerably and quickly. Moreover, the enhanced flavour gives you a better taste so you do not miss the reduced nicotine much.
In the end, be kind to yourself as change does not come in a day rather it takes time, so go easy on yourself. If you have switched to vaping, then you have already bid farewell to tar and other thousands of harmful chemicals, which is an achievement for you. With patience, perseverance and proper method, you will be able to quit nicotine as well. Once you do, you will be able to enjoy vaping without any nicotine with hundreds of flavours to choose from.
