Cigarettes are over! Smoker, you have decided to quit smoking for good and use electronic cigarettes to help you achieve this. You have read our article “ How to choose an electronic cigarette ” to find out which vape material to buy. Now you have to choose your e-liquid and especially its nicotine level. What level of nicotine do you need? We explain everything about the nicotine dosage of e-liquids !
A nicotine level of a former smoker
Here is a simple method to choose the nicotine dosage of your e-liquid:
- 0 mg (without nicotine): for people who are not addicted to nicotine.
- 3 mg for a light smoker of less than 2 to 5 cigarettes per day.
- 6 mg for a light smoker of less than 6 to 8 cigarettes per day.
- 11 mg for a smoker of 12 to 14 cigarettes per day.
- 16 mg for a heavy smoker of more than 15 cigarettes per day.
If you are a former very heavy smoker, vaping an e-liquid at 16 mg/ml or more (18 mg/ml, 20 mg/ml) can cause some inconvenience. For example, you risk having a sore throat because of the high nicotine content or having a frequent lack of nicotine, prompting you to fall for a cigarette or vape too often.
To remedy this, we advise you to buy e- liquids with nicotine salts, for sale on Nicovip. E -liquids with nicotine salts act very quickly to immediately calm the feeling of lack of nicotine. The nicotine satisfaction is maximum and in addition, they are much softer to vape than traditional vape juices! No sore throat in sight! To vape an e-liquid with nicotine salts, you must buy an electronic cigarette kit consisting of a low-power box (less than 20W) and a clearomizer or a pod with a resistance of more than 1 ohm.
The hit and the nicotine level
If you have just quit smoking , you are probably looking to have the same sensations during your vaping sessions as with the cigarettes you used to smoke. These sensations are: a marked hit (contraction of the throat) and a tight draw . To have a very present hit, the nicotine level plays a lot, but not only! Propylene glycol (PG), one of the main components of e-liquids with vegetable glycerin (VG) accentuates the hit. If you find that the hit is not strong enough with your nicotine level, opt for an ecig product with a high propylene glycol (PG) level .
To have a tight draw with your electronic cigarette, reduce the airflow and opt for an e-cig model that offers indirect inhalation (MTL) , preferably not very powerful and with resistances of more than one ohm.
