About Me
You Can Smoke And Become Healthier

I'm Harold Krajeski. I have smoked for most of my life. I have always needed the sensation of smoking in order to calm myself down, even without the nicotine that is found in traditional cigarettes. But at the same time, I want to be as healthy as I can be. For that reason, I have spent a lot of time learning how to continue my smoking lifestyle while also being as healthy as I can be. E-cigarettes have been helpful in this regard because I can mix my own liquids. I'd love to help others be healthier, so I created this blog.

Vaping 101

With the cost of smoking cigarettes constantly on the rise, even smokers who aren't concerned about the known health risks are considering switching to vaping. Additionally, some people, such as pipe smokers, simply enjoy smoking and the wider array of flavors available. While vaping isn't a complicated procedure, like any unfamiliar process, it can take a bit to get used to the industry lingo. Here is the beginner's guide to what you need to know.

Vaping Devices

While there are several types of actual smoking devices, the pen unit is the simplest and easiest for beginners. It is comprised of basically a small device that is shaped similarly to a pen or a traditional cigarette. They are commonly called e-cigarettes. It has a small battery, and then the tank, which is filled with a flavored liquid. There are other devices that are more complicated, with some looking more similar to pipes.

The batteries also become more sophisticated, with the increase in voltage providing a warmer inhaling experience and the lower voltage providing a cooler experience. The battery size will also determine the length of how long it will last, with a bigger battery getting more usage. Some are rechargeable, even with USB attachments, while other inexpensive devices are completely disposable. A disposable device that doesn't cost much is a good way to see if the vaping experience is for you.

Vaping Cartridges

E-cigarette and vaporizing cartridges come in different styles. They may be pre-filled, or you may purchase refillable cartridges. This enables you to order DIY E-liquid gear online, which can save you money.

For cigarette smokers who are trying to kick the habit, pre-filled cartridges come in several different nicotine strengths. This enable smokers to use the step down method of quitting. A smoker can start at the level of nicotine they are accustomed to, and then gradually decrease the nicotine content until they have reached zero. The cartridges are available in both regular flavor and menthol.

For pipe smokers who aren't as concerned about nicotine content as well as recreational smokers, they can choose flavored cartridges. Many manufacturers offer traditional flavors such as apple, cherry, and clove as well as more unique flavors such as coffee or chocolate. In many states, cannabis oil with THC, the active component in marijuana, is now legal. This is also available in different strengths, with different flavors.

Once a beginner has determined their vaping goals and has the basics down, the cheapest way to vape is by purchasing the E-liquid online and filling your own cartridges.
