WARNING: This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical.
You’ve tried nic gum, the patch, and straight up cold turkey… yet nothing helps. Yeah, we’ve been there too. Trying to quit smoking is tough. Especially when information is so readily available about the consequences of lighting one up. However, those who put down the pack for good stand a chance at reducing their risk for serious disease and early death. Tobacco smoke can contain more than 7,000 chemicals, and many of those chemicals are harmful – even causing cancer! By switching to vaping, you could eliminate those harmful chemicals and take back your health while living a longer life.
Within 20 minutes after your last cigarette, your body begins a series of changes that continue for years.
Your heart rate drops.
Carbon monoxide level in your blood drops to normal.
Your heart attack risk begins to drop.
Your lung function begins to improve.
Your coughing and shortness of breath decrease.
Your added risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker’s.
Your stroke risk is reduced to that of a nonsmoker’s 5-15 years after quitting.
Your lung cancer death rate is about half that of a smoker’s.
Your risk of cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, bladder, kidney, and pancreas decreases.
Your risk of coronary heart disease is back to that of a nonsmoker’s.
Vaping is the act of inhaling and exhaling vapor produced by an e-cigarette or personal vaporizer. It is called vaping because instead of igniting tobacco or a similar substance, you are instead heating a liquid, leaf, or wax, for the purpose of releasing nicotine or scents to be inhaled. There is no actual burning, therefore it doesn’t produce any smoke, ash, or tar. Many people claim that it is healthier for that exact reason.
E-juice only contains 3-4 ingredients: Vegetable Glycerin (VG), Propylene Glycol (PG), Flavorings, and optional nicotine.
The base, or “liquid,” is made up of a blend of Vegetable Glycerin (VG) and Propylene Glycol (PG). These substances are in a lot of the things you already consume, and are generally safe to inhale. There is not enough research or evidence on the inhalation of VG/PG to determine if it is unsafe for human consumption.
In addition to a blend of VG/PG, e-liquid contains flavorings and optional nicotine. E-juice comes in a wide variety of both nicotine and flavors, and can even be customized to fit your needs. When quitting smoking, most people start with a high-level nicotine e-juice and slowly wean themselves down to a lower level. Wondering which nicotine level would be right for you? Ask one of our friendly store associates for help learning what flavor and strength is best for you!
Managing Nicotine Intake to Quit Smoking
When you first start vaping you’ll probably need to play around with your nicotine levels. If you’re a heavy smoker switching to vaping, automatically starting at a low or zero nicotine e-juice probably isn’t going to cut it. You’re going to want a high level nicotine e-juice that is slightly less than your preferred pack of cigarettes (and preferably something that doesn’t taste like them!). Over time, you can gradually reduce your nicotine levels and e-juice consumption.
E-juice is commonly found in the following strengths:
Getting into vaping can be intimidating, especially if you don’t exactly know what it is or ever tried it! It’s important that transition is as easy as possible for you and you have the right device with the right juice. When getting started, it’s best to get a vape that is simple with a good pull - something that mimics a traditional cigarette. If you need some assistance getting started, stop into any Vapers Choice or Smokers Choice location and our friendly store associates will help you!
We recommend a good starter kit. These kits usually include everything you’d need to get started vaping, and don’t require accessories such as batteries or coils. As you learn more about vaping and your preferred device/style, you can venture out into more customizable and mechanical devices.
Starter kits are great for beginners because they usually only include a device, the tank, and a charger. Everything is included together so that you do not need to buy accessories other than regular maintenance. They’re also a great place to start as they are inexpensive and easy to use.
