Switching 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.
