How to Maximize Your Results: Smoker’s Transition to Vaping

Upgrading e-cig vaporizer with kanthal clapton coil dripSwitching to a safer, healthier alternative than smoking is one of the main reasons people begin vaping. To help to curb cravings and allow you to maintain the element of routine is paramount for those tapering themselves from a smoking addiction. Some people also come to vaping without any background of smoking, but purely for the novel pleasure and social function. For those, however, coming off smoking and looking to get the most out of the vaping process to help with their transition, here are a few tips on how best to utilize the vaping technique so as to get the most benefit from the experience.

 

There are generally two types of vaping styles. Mouth-to-lung inhalation is more suited to how smokers inhale. In this two step process, you draw the ‘smoke’ into the lungs, and then into the mouth. The resistance and airflow settings need to be tweaked here to ensure that this form of vaping flows with more ease, like tighter airflow. Take longer, slower puffs when vaping to draw the process out longer to get more effect. It is said that it can take about 30 min to get the same amount of nicotine from your vape than it would from 5 mins of smoking, so for those looking to really aid their cravings in the transition, vape for much longer.

The other form of vaping is the direct-to-lung style, which is where the vapor directly comes down into the lungs in one process as you inhale. This requires a much larger airflow setting on your device. It is recommended for those switching straight from smoking, the mouth-to-lung form is most suitable for the transition, though overtime, you will find your own rhythm and preferred style, depending on the effect you wish to achieve.

European Study-Smokers Using Vaping to Quit

Vapor Galleria Camp WisdomA new study recently came out supporting vaping products and their beneficial use in quitting tobacco cigarettes, instead of using traditional marketed Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRT).

 

According to a press release dated June 27, 2016 from the American Vaping Association, a study was compiled by researchers at the University of Patras-Greece, Onassis Cardiac Surgery Centre-Greece and the French National Research Institute for Health and Medical Research. The data compiled by the researchers concluded that tobacco smokers are commonly using vaping products as a way to quit or reduce their dependence on tobacco cigarettes. The researchers from the study used a 2014 Eurobarometer survey for their data collection. The Eurobarometer survey evaluates, among other things, patterns in smoking and e-cigarette use. The information from the survey was collected from a questionnaire that was answered by 27, 460 Europeans from 28 countries in the European Union.

 

The compiled data from the study found that 48.5 million Europeans have tried e-cigarettes, and there are 7.5 million individuals that consider themselves to be current users. Among those who are still vaping there are 35.1% that state they have quit smoking tobacco cigarettes, and another 32.2% have cut-back on their use. Dr. Konstantinos Farsalinos, principal investigator and author of the study, stated in the press release, “These are probably the highest rates of smoking cessation and reduction ever observed in such a large population study.”

 

According to the press release, the researchers concluded from the study two basic facts about e-cigarettes. The first that vaping is a viable means for smokers to quit smoking altogether, or to at least reduce their dependence on tobacco cigarettes. The second being vaping use tends to be limited to current and former tobacco smokers. In the study there were only 1.3% of non-smokers reported using e-cigarettes containing nicotine, and a small 0.09% of non-smokers reported daily use of electronic cigarettes. There was little reported continued use by non-smokers. This is more evidence, as other studies have concluded, that vaping is not the proverbial gateway to smoking.

 

Other studies, such as one recently conducted by the Royal College of Physicians (RCP), have come to the same conclusions concerning vaping as a means to quit smoking. The RCP recently conducted their own study in the UK, “Nicotine without Smoke: Tobacco Harm Reduction.” In their findings the RCP concluded that E-cigarettes are being marketed as a consumer product, but are more popular among smokers trying to quit or reduce their tobacco cigarette use than traditional Nicotine replacement therapies. Although there may yet be health risks associated with vaping products, the RCP states with today’s products the long-term health risks associated with electronic cigarette use is unlikely to exceed 5% of the harm from tobacco cigarette use. From their study they concluded in the interest of public health electronic cigarettes, NRT’s and other non-tobacco products should be promoted as a substitute for tobacco cigarette products.

 

As the studies strongly suggest vaping is a viable means for smokers to quit or reduce their need for traditional tobacco cigarettes. If you are interested in vaping as a result of this study, head out to Vapor Galleria Camp Wisdom where they will answer any question you might have about vaping safety versus smoking safety.

vapor-store

A franchise is a business model used in many of today’s industries. Franchise businesses are also called chains. The Small Business Administration explains franchising is when a franchisee sells to a new business owner the use of his licensing trademarks and systems of business.

 

There are two main formats for a franchise business according to the International Franchise Association: business format franchise and product distribution franchise. The business format model is the most used type of franchise. More than 120 industries use the franchise business model including automotive, lodging, fast food, real estate, and retail products & services.

 

The first form of franchise business is the business format franchise. For this franchise business model the franchisee sells to the franchisor the ability to use the franchise tradename, products, services, and system for operating the business. The franchisee may offer to the new business owner a full range of services. These services may can include initial training to run the business, operating manuals, marketing assistance, and personnel.

 

Focus on the product or products that the franchise owns, and distribution of this product is the business model for a product distribution franchise. The product is manufactured by the franchisee and is supplied to the franchisor. Often this type of franchise business model can be found in the bottling, gasoline, automotive and other manufacturing industries.

 

There are several benefits to owning a franchise business. There is a profitable benefit when the franchise name or their product is already well-known. If the product or trade name has a good reputation there is the basis of a pre-existing customer base. This translates into the ability to draw in new customers much more quickly than if the product or trade name is unknown.

 

Ongoing support from the franchisee is another benefit of buying into a franchise. The support from the franchise might include anything from the initial set-up of the new franchise business, through helping with the day-to-day running of the business. Other support from the franchise may include toll-free numbers, websites, newsletters, and workshops.

 

In today’s business market there are many businesses using the franchise model. One of the fastest growing businesses using the franchise business model is the e-cigarette and vapor store franchise market. According to their global market summary report, Researchandmarkets.com states that the global e-cigarette market is expected to surpass $50 billion by 2025. Researchandmarkets.com also states that the e-cigarette market should see staggering growth through 2017.

 

There are several benefits to owning a business with a franchise business model. A new business that has a preset business model and built-in support system makes it possible for a new business to be set up and running quickly. When the franchise already has a well-known name or product there is a pre-existing customer base. Support from the initial set-up of the new business by the franchisee helps the business owner to navigate the learning curve of owning a new business. This ongoing supports helps the business to grow into a successful part of the franchise.

So What Is The Right Type Of Vape Mod?

Advanced personal vaporizer or e-cigaretteFor many consumers who have switched to e-cigarettes, they start out their vaping journey with a cigalike or ego-style starter kit. After awhile, the desire for a more advanced piece of equipment normally comes to surface. These more advanced pieces, known as mods, can sometimes be difficult to acquire the right fit for your vaping habits.

Once you figure out the right kind of mod for your vaping style, picking out mods becomes much easier of a task. One of the first crossroads you will run into is the choice between fixed and variable voltage batteries. They advertise themselves as mods, as well as devices that have no circuitry at all. These are called mechanical mods and are not at all for new mod users. The problem with mods is when everything is considered a mod, how are you supposed to know what type of mod to choose? Considering you already do a little bit of vaping, you can more easily determine which features and types of mods that fit your style best. For this reason, it is a good thing that the vaping industry has advanced enough to customize any mod for exactly what you want.

 

The next step is to figure out the right price range for you. Once you figure out what you can afford, the shopping for a mod will also become much easier. Then you should stop and think about how much you use your current ecig. Do you run through your batteries capacity in only hours or days? Are the new sub-ohm tanks catching your eye or are you happy with the clearomizers you already know and love? A good way to answer some of these questions is to go to your local vape shop and ask a knowledgable employee.  When you figure out the type of battery that you want and also what wattage you want, it helps you narrow down the process even more.

Vaping Caffeine?

What are electronic cigarettes and what are the benefits of using them instead of regular cigarettes?  eCigs are smoke-free, no-mess and no-smell cigarettes that are powered by a rechargeable battery. The little device can be purchased in most convenience stores and drug stores.   However, for the best selection and more knowledgeable staff, it is best to visit your local vapor store or vape shop.  eCigarettes look like cigarettes and create the sense of inhaling smoke and blowing it out. They contain nicotine for the “hit” you would normally get from a cigarette but without the high risk of cancer. The nicotine keeps cravings for a cigarette under control because you are essentially “smoking”. The ecig feels different compared to a regular cigarette, but it mimics all of the behavioral aspects of smoking a real cigarette such as holding the object, inhaling, exhaling, and enjoying the “feel” or experience of actually smoking. Ecigs are the original replacement for smoking and were developed to help people quite smoking. These tiny devices are currently produced mostly by tobacco companies. Different flavors are offered as well as different dosages of nicotine. Most ecigs these days are pretty much disposable since the newer vape cigs came on the market. Ecigs have now moved over for vaping and mods (which are enhanced vapes).

The original electronic cigarette was developed as a way to help people quit smoking. Most smokers will attest to the fact that smoking is a dangerously addictive habit and it has been proven to cause cancer, heart disease, and emphysema. Recently, cigarettes have been shown to cause bladder cancer as well.  This is pretty scary stuff!

When a person decides to quit smoking, they ask the question “what’s next?”. It’s time to visit a local vape shop. Some are located in malls or in your local shopping center.  Some vapor stores allow you to try the product and sample a lot of the ejuices. Many vape stores are on line now as well. The demand is growing in leaps and bounds as the smoking community is changing for the better. Although the general public is still leery of ecigs, vapes and mods, as advertising gets out there and more people are using the products, the mystery about these little devices will disappear.

Ecigs produce an impressive vapor or cloud. It looks, feels, and tastes like regular tobacco smoke. The vapor is created using natural organic vegetable glycerin, organic flavorings and of course nicotine, strength is up to the vape-er (which is you).  Smoking an ecig eliminates 4000 chemicals being ingested into your lungs.  You can also purchase nicotine free eliquids if you are trying to eliminate that from your body.

To activate your ecig, you simply push a button or take a “puff”. Some ecigarettes activate by simply inhaling. A tiny heater (atomizer or coil) heats the ejuice which then produces the vapor. There are no messy ashes, no lingering smelly smoke,  and no full ashtrays.  Just an enjoyable vaping experience.

Don’t know where to begin?  There are starter kits for the beginner. If you are currently a smoker, you will probably want the tobacco starter kit. They even come in menthol if that’s your flavor preference.  Nicotine is calculated for the beginner and gradually increased as you desire. If you don’t want nicotine, the ecigs can be purchased nicotine free. Are you looking for a quick boost of energy, caffeine is now available as well.

The sky is the limit when it comes to flavors  of eliguids available. There are new devices on the market and numerous models to choose from. You can purchase disposable electronic cigarettess to start and gradually move up to the more sophisticated vapes and mods.

Cost?  When you consider what smoking cigarettes costs and the health risks you take when you smoke, vaping is reasonable in price and more beneficial to your health.

The market is growing as more and more people find out just how pleasurable vaping is and that it can replace cigarette smoking. Stop by a local vapor store (or vape shop) and find out more. A serious vape shop will have knowledgeable staff on hand to help you with your needs and will show you how to get started.  They will answer all of your questions.  Considering that over a lifetime, a person can spend thousands of dollars on tobacco smoking just to end up very sick as a result, why not consider vaping?

Visit a vape shop soon. You’ll be glad you did.
