First Experience With Vaping? Know What To Expect

Over the years, vaping has gained immense popularity and the number of users is growing at a rapid pace. The tech is smaller and easier to use, while the products are easily available, which is fueling the popularity even more. Moreover, it is getting recognition as a better and healthier alternative to smoking. While you will love the experience once you become accustomed to it, the first time is often fraught with nervousness and apprehension. So knowing what to expect during your first experience will make you more comfortable. Here are some insights about the expectations you should have as a beginner.

You may cough a bit

Surprisingly, you may cough a bit when you start vaping for the first time or even switch from smoking to this new form of inhalation. Despite being easier on the lungs, vaping gives a much different sensation as compared to conventional cigarette smoking. Coughing when you start is quite normal and a majority of the first-timers have it, at least for the first few sessions. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all answer about how long it will last because everyone responds to vaping differently. However, it is nothing to worry about and your resistance will wear down sooner rather than later. Alternatively, you may start with a very mild e-juice to overcome the initial effect and gradually move on to a stronger product.

Vaping delivers a bigger buzz

As compared to tobacco in normal cigarettes, the vape juice used in vaping gives you a bigger buzz. This is great if you are looking for a kick because even a homemade weed pipe along with the right vape juice flavor can give the best experience right from the start. But be sure that you have company when it’s your first time and you are opting for a stronger variant that can get you intoxicated. A vape juice that has a lower concentration of nicotine should be ideal if you want a mellow buzz. Make sure that you check the nicotine level in the e-juice before you start. Consider getting advice from a seasoned user.

There will be bodily changes

Switching from smoking to vaping can bring drastic changes to your lungs over time and the best thing is that these are all for the better. The smoke produced by traditional tobacco products like cigarettes is high in chemicals, which gradually accumulate in your lungs and cause health issues. Vaping can clear out these toxins and chemicals from your lungs. Eventually, you will see a lot of positive physical changes, such and better lung capacity, and greater stamina. You will even experience more energy and a better sense of taste and smell.

Being prepared with better knowledge and awareness will help you see vaping in a positive light and you will be comfortable with the idea pretty soon. Just make sure that you have the right products and equipment for your first time. Good advice from someone who has already been doing it for some time can also help.
