New Year's Resolutions - Quitting Smoking in 2024
New Year's Resolutions - Quitting Smoking
We hope everyone had a fantastic festive season, and wish you all the best for 2024! If, like me, you indulged a little too much in festivities over the past few weeks, then you may be looking to plan ahead for 2024 and set yourself a New Year’s resolution.
Looking to quit smoking in 2024? This handy guide will provide you with the information that you need to find the right vape kit to suit your preferences, and undergo the transition from smoking to vaping.
We understand that making the switch from smoking to vaping is hard for many people, and whilst there are other nicotine alternatives out there, in my personal experience vaping has by far been the most successful. I believe that one of the main reasons for this is the variety of high-performing vape kits, e-liquids and disposables that are currently on the market - offering something for everyone!
Choosing Your Vape Kit
The first step on the journey to quitting smoking is finding the right vape kit for you. With an extensive variety of different vape devices available, the trick is figuring out what suits your needs. Vape kits come in a range of sizes, power levels, and vaping styles - ensuring that there is a fantastic mixture of options to choose from.
Here at Vape Shop, we have a massive selection of impressive and unique devices to choose from. MTL (Mouth To Lung) kits offer a style of vaping that is similar to the sensation of smoking a cigarette, whereas Sub Ohm kits provide a vaping experience that is akin to using a shisha pipe.
One thing to remember is that different kits work for different people. Some users will respond well to a small, discreet device that creates a moderate amount of vapour, whereas others will prefer something powerful, that produces enormous clouds, rich with an abundance of vibrant flavour.
Once you have decided what will work best for you, the next step is picking the right E-liquid (also known as “Vape Juice”). If you are coming straight from a smoking background, Vape Shop stocks an extensive selection of tobacco-flavoured E-liquids, that possess a similar taste to that of a cigarette. However, if you’re feeling adventurous, then why not explore something fruity, or dessert-based?
E-liquids come in all shapes and sizes. They can be incredibly important in terms of finding something you really like the flavour of. Let’s be honest, nobody genuinely enjoyed the “flavour” of a cigarette. They caused your clothes, hands and breath to smell pretty terrible, not to mention the horrendous health issues that are directly linked to smoking.
Now, let's take a look at the E-liquid flavours on offer.
Many smokers dipping that first toe into vaping will choose something familiar, like a tobacco-flavoured vape juice, whilst others will want to sample something completely different. As I said before, I overindulged over the festive period, so currently have a liking for anything a little more on the sweeter side, such as deliciously rich bakery and dessert-flavoured vape juices. Do you have a hankering for soothing minty tastes? Give an icy menthol E-liquid a try! More of a fizzy drinks person? Try one of our cola-flavoured vape juices!
Another important factor is nicotine level. Whilst a single cigarette will tend to have around 12mg of nicotine in it, this measurement doesn’t translate precisely over to E-liquids. What I mean by this is that just because you smoke cigarettes with 12mg of nicotine in them, that doesn’t mean 12mg nicotine vape juice will necessarily be the right fit for you. It is best to sample a variety of different nicotine strengths, and see which you like the most!
Our comprehensive selection of E-liquids offers a variety of nicotine strengths, and we stock a vivid selection of different brands. One example is the WixMix range, which is available in 0mg, 3mg, 6mg, 12mg, and 18mg nicotine strengths. These are a wonderful pick for those new to vaping because these varied strengths have something to offer for customers who smoke different amounts of cigarettes per day. Only smoke a few cigarettes? Then consider a 3mg or 6mg strength E-liquid. Are you someone who smokes a considerable amount every day? Then a 12mg or 18mg strength vape juice will be a better pick.
The WizMix range is available in 10ml bottles, and has been expertly designed to provide impressive flavour delivery and a satisfying nicotine hit, created for use with MTL starter kits and pod kits.
Starting Your Journey
Vape kits, whether MTL, RDTL (Restricted Direct To Lung) or DTL (Direct To Lung) are powered by either an internal rechargeable or external battery, which may also be charged separately. This will provide the power to heat up the coil in your vape kit, which tends to last around 1 - 2 weeks, depending on the frequency of use. This in turn heats your chosen E-liquid, and turns it into the vapour that you inhale. You would need to prime your coil to ensure the cotton is saturated with E-liquid before use, to avoid a horrendous burnt taste which will also damage the cotton in your coil, and mean that your coil will need to be replaced sooner.
Now that you know a bit more about vaping, you should be ready to find the device and E-liquids that will work for you. The folks here at Vape Shop wish you the very best of luck going into 2024, and starting your journey towards a new, smoke-free version of yourself.
You’re gonna smash it!
