If you made the switch to vaping in order to help yourself quit smoking, there’s an excellent chance that you used – and still use – disposable vapes with nicotine. In fact, it may have never even occurred to you to do things differently. Vaping, after all, is the best form of nicotine replacement that exists. Because you absorb the nicotine through your lungs, vaping can be just as satisfying as smoking. That’s why so many people have quit successfully by switching to vaping.
In this article, though, we’re going to expand your horizons a bit by telling you about a completely different way of doing things. The fact that you’ve quit smoking with the help of vaping doesn’t mean that you have to be stuck using nicotine for the rest of your life. The reason why nicotine-free vapes exist is because there’s actually a high level of demand for them. Some people vape full time without ever using nicotine, and others use nicotine-free vapes part of the time depending on the situation.
So, why do so many people use nicotine-free disposable vapes – and why should you consider joining them? To learn the answers to those questions, you’ll have to continue reading.
Use Nicotine-Free Vapes to Reduce Your Nicotine Intake
One of the reasons why so many people have used disposable vapes to help themselves quit smoking is because the devices are often very high in nicotine. They’re designed to deliver about as much nicotine per puff as a tobacco cigarette, which is exactly what you want if you’re trying to quit. If there’s no difference in your level of satisfaction, you won’t be tempted to smoke.
Once you’ve quit smoking, though, what do you do next? After you’ve been vaping for a while, you may actually find that your overall nicotine intake will start to creep up slowly. As a smoker, you light a cigarette and use it until it’s finished. Disposable vapes are completely different – your vape is always by your side, and it’s always ready to use. A device may last for several days before it runs out of e-liquid, and that means there’s no built-in feature to limit your usage.
Using nicotine-free vapes on a part-time basis is a great way to limit your nicotine intake if your usage has begun to creep up. If you find yourself vaping constantly just out of habit – and not because you actually need the nicotine – you can switch to a nicotine-free device and use that for a while instead. This is an easy way to moderate your nicotine consumption.
Use Nicotine-Free Vapes to Quit Nicotine Entirely
Have you ever thought about what your long-term plans for the future are now that you’ve successfully quit smoking? Do you plan to continue vaping indefinitely, or would you like to work toward a bigger goal? You should consider the possibility that nicotine-free vapes can actually help you achieve a long-term goal of quitting nicotine entirely.
Once you’ve been a full-time vaper long enough that you no longer experience cigarette cravings, the next logical step toward becoming nicotine free is using non-nicotine disposable vapes on a part-time basis as described in the section above. From there, you should start to count the number of times that you puff on your device each day. Every few puffs, switch to the nicotine-free device. If you use a nicotine-free vape every fourth puff, for instance, you’ll reduce your nicotine consumption by one quarter.
You can continue reducing your nicotine consumption from there at whatever pace you’re comfortable with. Use your disposable vape once every four puffs, once every three puffs, once every two puffs, and so on until you’re no longer using nicotine at all. Once you’ve done that, there’s no need to continue vaping. You can simply stop whenever you like.
Use Nicotine-Free Vapes to Try New Flavors Cheaply
Disposable vapes are quite inexpensive, but you’re not going to feel that way if you have an insatiable curiosity that compels you to try as many different flavors as possible. A well-stocked vape shop will have dozens of different flavors available at any given time, and it would certainly be cost prohibitive to try all of them. Buying nicotine-free vapes, however, can give you an opportunity to try new flavors without spending so much money.
Although there is plenty of demand for nicotine-free vapes, the demand isn’t quite as high as it is for devices with nicotine because most people who use e-cigarettes to help themselves quit smoking do use nicotine. When it’s time to clearance items out because they’re reaching their best-by dates, nicotine-free disposable vapes always go on sale first – and they’re often available at extremely low prices. If you want to try a bunch of new flavors but don’t want to spend a lot of money for them, your best bet is to grab some nicotine-free vapes from the clearance bin at your local vape shop.
Use Nicotine-Free Vapes to Sleep Better at Night
If you were a long-time smoker before switching to vaping, you’ve probably used nicotine for so long that you don’t really feel as if it affects you anymore. You probably stopped feeling a nicotine rush from smoking long before you switched to vaping. You vape when you have a desire for nicotine, and otherwise, it doesn’t really affect you much – at least, that’s what you think.
The truth, though, is that nicotine consumption late at night can affect your sleep quality more than you might realize. Even if you’ve reached the point where you no longer feel a rush and only use nicotine to feel normal, nicotine use during the evening can still make it difficult for you to fall asleep and stay asleep the whole night. That’s where nicotine-free vapes come in. An hour or two before bedtime, try swapping out your usual vape for a nicotine-free device. You can use that device for the rest of the evening, and you won’t feel like you’re missing out because you’ll still be able to enjoy your usual hand-to-mouth ritual. Continue this pattern for a week or two and see if your sleep quality improves.
