Enjoying the Depth of the Vaping Experience Even Without Nicotine
Some people believe the only reason to vape is for the nicotine. That’s not necessarily true! Almost every brand and flavor combination has a non-nicotine version. Why? Because there is a market for those who want to vape without nicotine. Could you be one of those people?
Read on to find out.
The Purpose of Nicotine
The nicotine in an e-cigarette serves two purposes; flavor and throat hit. Nicotine has a peppery taste on its own and that is what causes the throat hit that most smokers are looking for in the experience. It’s that slight burn in the back of your throat when you inhale. The other flavors each work in conjunction with the nicotine to create a special blended flavor.
Why Vape Without Nicotine
Ex-smokers are the largest group to use non-nicotine e-cigarettes. They switched in an effort to quit smoking. On the surface, this seems like a good idea, but this needs to be a gradual process. A sudden swap to a non-nicotine juice will not fool your body that is used to the nicotine. There will still be a craving that drives many people right back to regular cigarettes.
The best plan to eliminate nicotine is to start with a medium dose and then every few months lower it gradually until you are vaping without nicotine. It may take awhile to complete this process, but it is easier on the withdrawal symptoms with a much higher success rate.
When Taste Matters
If you are going with nicotine free vapes you should go with a high-quality brand to ensure a good, even taste. Without the nicotine, it’s all about the flavors so you want something rich and full. Fruity and sweet flavors do particularly well without the added peppery taste of the nicotine.
If you are still looking for the throat hit sensation, there are some juices that use an additive to mimic that burn. The most common are menthol, capsaicin (think chili peppers) and grain alcohol. Each creates a separate feeling but does offer a similar ‘heat’ associated with traditional cigarette smoking.
The Social Aspect
Maybe you are someone who enjoys the social aspect of smoking. You like the experience while drinking at a bar or hanging out with friends on the weekend. A non-nicotine vape gives you the ability to do this without the worry of potential nicotine side effects.
With a full range of flavors, you can experiment and find just the right one to go with whatever activity you are enjoying at the moment.
Having a Routine
Some people enjoy their routines. Many smokers have a regular schedule and there are specific times they would smoke a cigarette. A few enjoy a vape first thing in the morning. Others want one just before bed. Many people like to smoke right after a meal. Even without the need for nicotine, the e-cigarette provides that satisfaction.
There is also the hand to mouth fixation that smoking satisfies. Many people gain weight when they stop smoking because they need that movement and use food instead. Vaping fixes that need without the added nicotine or calories. The wide variety of flavors can also satisfy a sweet tooth craving. There are chocolate and other candy flavors that people use instead of the real thing.
The Bottom Line
There are many reasons why someone would want to vape without nicotine. Fortunately, there are many options and flavors to help accommodate them when they are ready to try.
