4 Ways Vaping Helps You With Losing Weight


People take up vaping for the most part to get over their addiction of smoking. Vaping is a great way to give you that feeling of “smoking” minus all the nasty carcinogens and chemicals that are associated with cigarettes.

Vaping has a very high success rate when it comes to quitting smoking which is why more and more smokers are starting to use vaping to eliminate their bad habit.

However, there are also a group of people who are picking up vaping for a different reason.

These people are using vaping to overcome another addiction which is their junk food cravings.

I’ve seen people all over the internet, from forums to YouTube videos, people who don’t smoke at all that are using vaping to aid them in taking less calories.

Why Some People Are Using Vaping To Lose Weight

One story I came across: vaping turned on a light bulb in this girl’s head when she found out there were different candy and dessert flavors available in e-juice form.

She saw these flavors as an opportunity for her to keep her cravings in check. And since she doesn’t smoke, she only takes the vapor in her mouth and doesn’t inhale into her lungs, sort of like hookah. This gives her taste buds that flavor satisfaction they are craving. She’s getting all the flavor of her favorite bad foods minus the calories!

 It’s actually a good idea

As a vaper who used vaping to overcome smoking, and a person who has been vaping for some time now, I can attest that vaping definitely helps in curbing cravings.

If you are looking into vaping to help you lose weight, but are a little suspicious of what’s in e-liquid, let me clear this for you. Regardless of what you’ve heard, e-juice consists of Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol which both are found in food grade products, along with flavoring and nicotine.

So for those of you who are still worried about getting poisoned by vaping, don’t fall for that lie, you have nothing to worry about in regards to that.


4 Ways Vaping Helps You With Losing weight

So here are 4 ways vaping helps in losing weight. The idea here is vaping prevents you from picking up that plate of extra creamy chocolate mousse or downing one whole bag of candy by letting you taste it (through vaping) without having to eat it and consuming all those calories.

1. ) It can kill junk food cravings

Contrary to what you’ve been hearing on the news that candy and dessert flavored e-juice are a way to entice teens into vaping, these flavors are enjoyed by adult vapers. Also, the reason why these flavors are very popular in the vaping community is because consumers have a very high demand for it.

When I was smoking, the only flavors I could choose from were tobacco or menthol. The wide variety of flavors vaping has to offer to me puts vaping way over smoking as a much more enjoyable experience.

From freshly baked glazed donuts to ice cream cake, I can savor the flavors of these delicious treats without having to worry about packing on some weight.

You could use this to your advantage if you are struggling with high calorie food cravings. Get a good quality vaping device, a tank, and some e-juice of your favorite flavor online and enjoy the taste of your favorite food without adding pounds.

2.) Nicotine is an appetite suppressant

It’s well-known that nicotine helps in preventing you from over eating by suppressing your appetite.

And no, nicotine isn’t some evil chemical that is extracted from tobacco. In fact, nicotine can be found in food like tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and cauliflowers.

Here’s a shocker you probably didn’t know: nicotine is not addictive. There are actually some benefits you can get from nicotine intake which I discussed in this post : Beliefs about nicotine that turned out to be false.

E-juice comes in different levels of nicotine when you buy it. These are most commonly: 3 mg, 6 mg, and 12 mg. Some vendors offer amounts as low as 1.5 mg, and some as high as 24 mg.

If you still prefer to avoid nicotine, no problem, you aren’t alone. There are many smokers-turned-vapers who have this stigma with nicotine. This is why e-juice vendors also offer zero nicotine options with their products.

3.) E-Juice comes in all sorts of flavors

A survey was done before that showed fruit flavors were the most popular among vapers, tobacco was second and dessert/bakery flavors came in at third. This survey was done a couple of years ago, and the number of available flavors has accumulated greatly since this survey was done.

From famous candies we’ve enjoyed growing up like Airheads and fruit roll-ups, to sweet rich desserts like red velvet cake and creme brulee, or even breakfast food like Fruit Loops cereal and syrupy buttermilk pancakes, 9 times out of 10 there is an e-juice equivalent to that flavor.

Now this doesn’t apply to other high calorie foods like pizza or burgers because there aren’t really any e-juice flavors out in the market since there isn’t really a demand for them.

4.) It increases your water intake

If you vape moderately to heavy, you’ll notice that your mouth gets dry after a while. Known as “vaper’s tongue,” I wrote a post about how to deal with this problem in the past, and one way to get rid of vaper’s tongue is by drinking more water.

Since vaping dries out your mouth, you are going to have to drink more water to soothe your dry mouth which in turn will increase your water intake. And we all know what kind of benefits come with drinking more water, especially when it comes to losing weight and flushing your body of toxins.

I mean you could use other types of beverages to water your mouth, but I know by experience that water is the best drink to have when you are vaping because it doesn’t get in the way of the e-juice flavor you are vaping on. Coffee is probably the second best drink to have when vaping for me, especially when your are vaping on dessert/bakery flavored e-liquid.


And if you are a non-smoker who just wants to get the “taste” of vaping, you can always and do a Bill Clinton and not inhale. It’s whatever works best for you!

Vaping is a great way to help you in substituting your sweet tooth. I’m glad some people are finding other positive uses for vaping aside from quitting smoking.

4 Ways To Stop Getting E-Juice In Your Mouth


the_face_i_make_when_i_get_e-juice_in_my_mouth

Imagine this: you just got your favorite e-juice from the store or in the mail which you’ve filled your tank u with. You have a fresh set of coils and cotton that are ready when you are. You might even have a cup of coffee or your favorite drink with you.

Your little heart gets excited as you anticipate the 3-5 second goodness of vaping heaven, then you take a toot.

“Mmm, this is good!” Second toot, “mmm, this is REALLY good!”

All is well in the world. You kick back, relax, and enjoy the flavor on the exhale of your vape. The flavor is great and on-point.

But then you notice something, as you smack your lips, you start tasting the e-juice from your lips all the way down to your tongue, as if you took a swig out of that e-juice bottle you just got.

“Wait, what is this? Eww!”

You quickly run and grab the nearest napkin and wipe off (or spit out, depending on how much juice got into your mouth) the excess liquid from your mouth. What started off as a pleasant vaping experience has now turned into a gross encounter.

And no, you can’t keep vaping like this, something has to be done!

Has this ever happened to you? Even worse, does this constantly happen to you to the point where you just don’t care anymore?

There are simple fixes to this problem ensuring you get your favorite e-juice in vapor form and not getting liquid in your mouth.

E-Juice is supposed to be vaped, not drank

Commonly known as “spit back,” this is when e-juice spurts out of your drip tip and into your mouth whenever you vape.

There are different reasons for this happening. One cause would be not applying enough cotton on your coils. Since there isn’t enough cotton to suck up all the e-juice, your coils get drenched which causes the juice to spurt back out whenever the wires get heated.

Some manufacturers have made spit back guards in their tanks where a mesh is placed between the chimney and drip tip, blocking any liquids from coming back out.

But if your tank doesn’t have a spit back guard, then there a few quick fixes which will have you vaping on your favorite e-liquid, and not drinking it.

4 fixes for spit back

Here are 4 things you can do if you are experiencing e-juice getting into your mouth whenever you vape. The first 2 are for when you are at home  or any place which will allow you to disassemble your tank.

The last 2 are quick fixes you can do if ever you are outdoors and don’t have the time or the tools to take your your tank apart. They should give you a temporary fix, but won’t get rid of the problem completely. You have to refer to the first 2 tips to eliminate spit back from ever getting in the way of your vaping again!


Un-flood your tank – the most common cause for spit back is a flooded tank. A tank gets flooded when you either a.) don’t have the atomizer on properly or b.) you didn’t put enough cotton to absorb all the e-liquid, or c.) a million and one other reasons depending on how your tank is built. What you will need to do is take your tank apart and make sure all the parts are in place properly. Make sure your juice holes are aligned. For replaceable atomizers, make sure the atomizer is in its proper place. A lot of these new tanks use chimneys so a common mistake would be the atomizer being stuck on the base and not in line with the chimney. For rebuildable tanks, see to it that you have enough cotton placed in the coils. When you insert your cotton through your coils, it should fit snug inside the wrapped coils. If it comes in from one end to another very easily that means you don’t have enough cotton. The cotton will shrink once it gets saturated and won’t be any use to you whenever you vape.

Clean out your tank – So let’s say you did everything I said in tip 1, but you are still getting spit back. It’s most likely there is still e-juice trapped in your tank. You need to clean it until your tank is clean as a whistle and allowing e-juice to be in the place where it’s supposed to be. One way I clean out my tank is I wrap it in a napkin and blow into the tank with the air holes open. Do this until all the excess juice comes out through the air holes. Another way is by flicking your tank (wrapped in a napkin) in a sharp, powerful motion using your wrists until all excess juice is removed.

Tighten your air holes – Let’s say you’re in a bar or at work and the setting doesn’t allow you to disassemble your tank. A quick fix would be tightening your air holes. When you close your air holes a little the vacuum of air won’t be so strong which will lessen or eliminate from coming back out.

Lower your wattage – If you didn’t put enough cotton in your build, then lowering your wattage should stop e-juice from spurting out of your tank whenever you vape.


For me, one of the most annoying things that could happen when vaping is getting e-juice in my mouth. I just don’t like it. E-juice is supposed to be vaped.

What’s sad is some people act like it’s nothing, to the point where they actually start enjoying it. No, this is wrong and it shouldn’t be this way whenever you vape.

What it all comes down to is knowing how your tank functions and how to put it together properly. Read the manual carefully or you can refer to videos online which teach people how to do a proper build on a certain tank. You don’t have to keep on vaping like this, all it needs is a little more work.

Hopefully this helps those of you going through this problem and helps you enjoy vaping the way it should be!

5 Tips On How To Blow Bigger Clouds


5 Tips To Become A Cloud Chaser!

When I first started vaping, I was fascinated by the videos I would see online of other vapers blowing superhuman clouds of vapor like it was nothing!

“How do they do that?” Something I would ask myself as I watched in amazement.

The more I watched “cloud chasing” videos, the more I wanted to do it myself.

This is for all the newbie vapers who want tips on how to generate more vapor production.

A word of caution though, please, and I say this with all sincerity, DO NOT BLOW BIG CLOUDS OUT IN PUBLIC! Our community has a bad reputation already, mostly because of misinformation, but don’t add more heat by being a douchebag. Most people (non-vapers and non-smokers) HATE seeing big clouds of vapor being blown especially in their direction.

Be considerate of others. Vaping is to get off cigarettes, not to show off in public. It is also not a way to give you self-gratification and a feeling of superiority over others and other vapers. Just because you can blow big clouds doesn’t make you a “better” vaper. We are all equal in this community. We are all overcoming years of addiction to cigarettes.

If you vape just to look cool, to look “in,” or to get attention, do us and yourself a favor, throw your vape away or give it to someone who really needs it.

That being said, here are 5 tips on how blow bigger clouds of vapor:


TIP 1: MASTER THE LUNG HIT

lung-inhale

As smokers, we have become used to the mouth-to-lung hit, where we inhale into our mouth, then to our lungs, and exhale.

The problem with that in regards to blowing bigger clouds is most of the vapor dissipates in your mouth, leaving fewer vapor once you exhale.

Cloud chasers inhale directly to their lungs, getting a much bigger vacuum to get more vapor.

If you aren’t used to this type of inhale, you will cough, but eventually will get over it. If you do keep coughing, don’t force yourself. It just means that this isn’t for you, stick to mouth-to-lung.


TIP 2: GET A SUB-OHM TANK

super-kayfun

Back when I started vaping, I had to watch tutorials on how to wrap my coils on my atomizer, how to drill out holes, etc.

Lucky for you guys, sub-ohm vaping is easily available. Not only that, most tanks out now are catered to sub-ohm vapers. Pretty much anything with “sub-ohm” attached to it will give you bigger clouds. Any atomizer that reads 0.5 ohms and below will give you more cloud production.


TIP 3: OPEN YOUR AIR HOLES

The rule here is, the bigger your air holes, the more vapor you will suck in. Very simple.

If you like your air holes tight, you won’t be getting as much vapor as you could. Open those babies up!

Only downside is it sort of affects the flavor. But hey, you’ll be getting bigger clouds in exchange.


TIP 4: LEARN COIL BUILDING

If you want to get more technical about getting more vapor production, there are tons of videos on the internet that will show you step-by-step on how to make vapor-chucking builds.

More importantly though, if you do choose to learn how to build your own coils, make sure you get a very thorough understanding of the precautions that come with coil building. Too many people you see on the news having their mods blow up in their pocket or hands, don’t be one of them!


TIP 5: GET A BOX MOD

If you still are using a vape pen and want to blow bigger clouds, you’re doing it wrong. You’ll need something big enough to power the low resistance atomizer you have.

Buy a mod, a dual 18650 mod or any box mod will be good enough.


So there you are, 5 tips on how to blow bigger clouds. You are now a self-taught cloud chaser.

With bigger clouds come bigger responsibility. Be considerate to others and make sure you know the safety measures that come with cloud chasing.
