What to Expect When Vaping for the First Time
According to the World Health Organization, there are now an estimated 1.1 billion regular vapers in the world. As the tech becomes smaller and easier to use that number is only set to increase.
The vape market in the U.S. alone has already exceeded $12 billion a year! If you want to get in on the fun but feel nervous about making the switch from conventional tobacco products to vaping, here's what to expect when vaping for the first time.
More Coughing (At First)
Vaping, despite it being easier on the lungs, is a much different sensation than smoking cigarettes.
Because of this, you're likely to start coughing more at the start. This is normal. According to a survey of 600 vapers, 57% said they coughed when they vaped. This depends on the eJuice you use as well.
But don't worry. This is a normal reaction, and your resistance to vapor will wear down pretty quickly.
A Bigger Buzz
Instead of tobacco, most vapers "burn" liquid known as "e-juice" or "vape juice" to generate big clouds of vapor. This liquid oftentimes has a much higher concentration of nicotine than what is in tobacco.
This means that if you're new to vaping, you might catch a bigger buzz than you're used to. If this is what you're looking for, then party on! Make sure you have somewhere to sit and rest if you start getting lightheaded though.
If you're looking for a more mellow buzz, you'll want to make sure you're using vape juice with a lower concentration of nicotine. Most vape juice brands online or in stores will tell you how much nicotine is in their product.
Cigarette smokers who pivot to vaping can expect drastic changes to their lungs and their bodies over time when they first start vaping. Traditional tobacco products produce much "dirtier," chemical-laden smoke and these chemicals and debris collect in our lungs.
By switching to vaping, you'll notice your lungs clear out over time. You'll be hacking less when you wake up in the morning. Your lung capacity will improve. You'll notice that you have the drive to go for long runs. Your sense of taste and smell may even improve!
Everything that cigarettes take away over long periods of usage, vaping can restore.
