About quitting smoking with e-cigarettes

Smoking cessation has both physical and psychological effects. There is no drug in the world that can quit smoking! If you want to quit smoking, you must quit your "heart" first. Without perseverance, any drug assistance will be in vain.

 E-cigarettes are only an aid in smoking cessation, they can only help you replace the real cigarettes that were originally used for chronic suicide with "fake cigarettes"! You must know that every cigarette you smoke is one step closer to cancer while smoking e-cigarettes for a day is only as harmful as drinking a cup of coffee!

 When you insist on using e-cigarettes, stay away from real cigarettes, and turn back to using real cigarettes after a week. you will throw away the real cigarette without finishing it because you have not been in contact with the smoke particles and tar of real cigarettes for a long time. The body slowly recovered its previous sensitivity to particulate matter. To achieve the effect of completely quitting smoking, both physical and psychological effects are needed. It takes at least one month to refuse real cigarettes to reverse the psychological dependence on real cigarettes!

About nicotine

Nicotine contains monoamine oxidase inhibitors (Monoamine oxidase inhibitors), which can inhibit monoamine oxidase and decompose monoamine neurotransmitters, such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and 5-HT.

Nicotine can combine with nicotine acetylcholine receptors to increase the number of neurotransmitters, increase dopamine in the brain, and create a sense of emptiness in the brain. Increasing the concentration by smoking and other methods, relieves the emptiness caused by the rapid metabolism of nicotine, causing people Smoking can give people false illusions such as self-confidence and relaxation, and in the end, there may be addiction due to smoking.

Nicotine exists not only in tobacco leaves, but also in the fruits of various Solanaceae plants, such as tomatoes, wolfberries, and other plants that contain nicotine, and these vegetables and medicinal materials are recognized as healthy foods that are beneficial to the human body.

 Because of this, the World Health Organization vigorously promoted "Nicotine Replacement Therapy" for smoking cessation in the world as early as the 1990s, replacing the nicotine obtained from cigarettes in the past, and helping people overcome their dependence on cigarettes physically and psychologically. The chance of success in quitting smoking is more than doubled.

 Nicotine can remain in the blood for 48 hours and is excreted through normal metabolism. 

Nicotine content comparison table

Nicotine content per puff of a cigarette:

A cigarette can take about 10 to 15 puffs

Typically cigarettes contain anywhere from 0.5 milligrams to 2.4 milligrams of nicotine. A cigarette needs about 15 puffs, and the nicotine content inhaled per puff is:

  • When the nicotine content of the cigarette is 1.6 mg: 1.6/15 = 0.107 mg
  • When the nicotine content of the cigarette is 0.5 mg: 0.5/15 = 0.033 mg

Nicotine content per puff of electronic cigarettes:

The weight of 1ml of e-liquid is equivalent to 1g

The nicotine concentration in the electronic cigarette liquid is (according to 1g or 1000mg base):

  • 16mg=6%
  • 11mg=1%
  • 6mg =6%
  • 0mg=0%

According to the different nicotine content of the e-cigarette, a 1ml e-cigarette can smoke 300 puffs, and the nicotine content inhaled by each e-cigarette is:

- For high concentrations: 16 mg -- 16/300 = 0.05mg

What is an E-liquid leakage?

The concept of oil leakage is: e-liquid flows out from abnormal channels, such as the outside of the glass of the atomization chamber, the base of the atomizer, the outside of the cigarette holder, and other abnormal channels. Occasional inhalation of e-liquid from the cigarette holder is not an oil leakage phenomenon. This is generally the water droplets formed by the condensation of [atomized steam]. The solution: throw the remaining liquid from the cigarette holder downwards, and then twist it into a Rope dipped in and rotated to wipe dry. If it doesn’t work, just replace the atomizing core directly.

This kind of situation usually happens to novices. Many people who use e-cigarettes for the first time do not know how to control e-cigarettes, and it is easy to cause smoke liquid in the mouth. This situation rarely occurs for veterans of the same e-cigarette. Switching from real cigarettes to e-cigarettes is like changing a coach car to a private car. When switching between a throttle with speed and gas without speed, you must pay attention to the strength of your feet. Many factors affect it. It takes time to adapt to and understand electronic cigarettes. cigarette. It is a mistake to have Bole and then Maxima. There are both at the same time, but it takes time to understand. Don't be surprised by the normal phenomenon of liquid leakage, the real liquid leakage is not like this!
