It’s always the small details that trip up your attempts to stop smoking. Whether it’s a lack of charge in your vape, not getting the right ‘hit’ of nicotine, or a million other wrinkles; finding a reliable device can be invaluable for many users.
But with so many options, which one is right for you and what variables should you consider?
Why is Choosing the Right Device So Important?
When it comes to cessation or cutting back on your smoking habits, it’s important to be as diligent and thoughtful as possible.
At Pure E-Liquids, we understand the importance and difficulty in quitting cigarettes correctly. This is why we support any work done on a national vaping awareness campaign such as VApril, which aims to reach 40% of the UK.
Selecting the right make and model vaporiser can remove barriers to commitment and ensure you’re best placed to carry through on your commitment. Plus, as more research shows that vaping is up to 95% less harmful than cigarettes, we are happy to provide any support you need through our products too.
However, it is important to acknowledge that picking out a quality device alone will not cut it. If you are serious about quitting, it is important to commit to a series of small, achievable acts to help give you a sense of progress and accomplishment. Choosing the right vape can be the first step in a long road to positive change.
What Options Are Available to Me?
One of the first major considerations when selecting a device is starting with your nicotine consumption. Depending on your previous habit, you will want to find an e-liquid that matches what your body is used to with your previous levels of intake. Perhaps even consider an all-in-one vape kit to get started with.
While this is as much an art as a science – each individual is different after all – current supplements fall into three broad categories. For those that were heavy smokers, you’ll want to choose a high-concentration e-liquid. Something within the 1.8% range is generally suitable for those who were previously on a 20-a-day habit. For those who would class themselves as light smokers, settling on a 1.2% solution is a good starting point and can allow you to cut back or increase to help find equilibrium. Social smokers can circumvent the process entirely and go nicotine free with a 0% mix – with a range of tastes and flavours available as viable alternatives.
Of course, while it’s tempting to quit cold turkey, make sure you are realistic about your approach. Nicotine withdrawal is a real and serious issue. Ensuring that your body is slowly and safely weaned off the substance is incredibly important. If you are unsure about the strength you should be using, you can try different strengths to find the right product for your current tolerance level.
What Vape Device Should I Use?
Once you have confirmed what e-liquid works for you, it’s time to settle on a model that is effective and easy to use. These break into three key categories:
Vape Pens: These are exceptionally useful for social smokers and those looking for robust performance. Offering a great balance between functionality and battery life, these can be tossed into your pocket and retain their charge for a long period of time – and you’ll often find these grouped as ‘Starter Kits’. Intuitive and effective, they can also be dual purpose and allow you to vape e-liquids or switch to your herbal tobacco products, letting you enjoy a night out with ease.
Vape Pods: Extremely similar to a conventional smoking experience, these are great for light smokers who need a physical prop as much as a nicotine supplement. Devices such as the SMOK Nord and the iQ ONE are great for users looking to take the fuss out of vape management.
Vaporisers: These are great for ‘advanced’ users looking for a device that can go the distance. The XEO VOID is a fantastic example of an easy-to-use, entry-level device that offers a great split between functionality and cost effectiveness. The best of these allow for sub-Ohm vaping that can help eliminate many of the reported long-term risks of vaping while supporting your commitment to quit.
