Smoking cessation day by day: everything you need to know

If you are considering quitting or have already started your smoking cessation journey, you probably know, like many others, that it is certainly not easy to put down traditional cigarettes, as most users have often built up some form of addiction during their years as a smoker. Nicotine is the main substance smokers become addicted to but along with that most ex-smokers say the physical action of inhaling and exhaling to is quite additive 

During the early process of quitting smoking, you will go through a roller coaster with constant ups and downs where it usually goes down the fastest. However, it is important that you hang in, as it will pass and you will much better for it.

Lets take a closer look at the different phases and what happens to your body during a smoking cessation.

Everyone knows that smoking harms health, but not everyone knows exactly what happens to the body when you top smoking and how fast you can see and feel the improvements.

Below you can see exactly how the body repairs itself, hour by hour.

  • 20 minutes: Pulse rate returns to normal.
  • 8 hours: The oxygen level in the blood returns to normal and the amount of nicotine and carbon monoxide is halved.
  • 24 hours: The carbon monoxide has completely disappeared from the body and mucus and other residues from smoking begin to disappear from the lungs.
  • 48 hours: Nicotine is completely gone from yourbody. Both the sense of taste and smell start to improve.
  • 72 hours: Breathing slowly starts to becomes easier. The bronchi begin to relax and your energy level rises.
  • 2-12 weeks: Blood circulation improves, making it easier to walk and run.
  • 1 year: The risk of heart disease is halved compared to a smoker.
  • 10 years: The risk of lung cancer is halved compared to a smoker.
  • 15 years: The risk of a heart attack is the same as people who have never smoked.

Other benefits that one should be aware of include

  • Your clothes and hair will smell better
  • No longer having to stand out in the cold to get your ‘fix
  • Massive savings (the typical pack of cigarettes ia around £10)
  • Your non smoking partners and friends will notice the difference and be happier for you.

Now it’s time to choose your Starter kit – What is a starter pack?

An e-cigarette starter pack is a packing solution that includes tank, burner, battery and charger. The e-cigarette starter pack gives you everything you need and makes it easy for you who want to start steaming. All you have to do is buy the e-liquid (nicotine liquid) that suits your taste.

Our e-cigarette starter packs vary according to the type of e-cigarette you are looking for.

E-cigarettes come in several different colour and sizes. The smaller models are practical and easy to carry, however the larger models provide more steam, more flavor and hold their charge for longer.

Which e-cigarette starter pack should I choose?

The e-cigarette starter packs basically contain a tank, burner, battery and charger.

However, when choosing an e-cigarette starter pack, there are a few considerations you need to make.

First of all, you need to decide how much steam you want. There is a big difference between the different types and brands of e-cigarettes.

The amount of steam depends on different things. The strength of the battery is important as a battery with greater power can produce more steam. When reading about the battery, there are two things to note. The mAh (milliamps) and the Watt.

The mAh is a term for how much power can be stored in the battery. This means that the more mAh the battery contains, the longer you can steam before it has to be recharged. Watts is the power that the battery gives off when the e-cigarette is activated. The more watts the battery has, the more steam it will produce but also the faster the battery will drain (the higher it is turned up). If you are looking for lots of steam, however, you should go for a battery with a higher maximum wattage.

We recommend that you start with a nicotine strength that suits your cigarette consumption. This causes your nicotine cravings to subside, thereby reducing the chances of falling back into the cigarettes.

The higher the nicotine strength, the more sore throat there will also be. If you start with too low a nicotine strength, you will automatically steam extra, as you will not be able to satisfy your nicotine cravings. 

These nicotine strengths above are if one uses MTL e-cigarettes and are merely indicative strengths. If you use DL e-cigarettes, we would recommend using lower nicotine strength, typically 3-6 mg.

This is because DL e-cigarettes produce much more steam than MTL. This also gives you more nicotine at a time. This means that you do not need high nicotine strength at all to get your nicotine cravings quenched.

Below you can see how much nicotine we recommend you start with.

For you who have smoked less than 10 cigarettes a day – 6 mg nicotine
For you who have smoked approx. 10-15 cigarettes a day – 12 mg nicotine
For you who have smoked 15-20 cigarettes a day – 18 mg nicotine
