How much nicotine should a new vaper start with? If I smoked lights is 12mg the right amount to start with? Will I vape more than I smoked? Will the nicotine strength be enough to keep me from smoking?
Unfortunately there are no guidelines for the above questions that will apply to everybody. When you smoked, the tar deposited in your lungs served to act as a time release nicotine delivery mechanism. With vaping, the nicotine absorption is much quicker, and mostly occurs in the mouth and throat. We all seem to metabolize nicotine slightly differently through vaping.
