What nicotine strength do I need?

Many smokers who are interested in stopping smoking try to find an alternative to smoking. This is because of the fact that they have become addicted to the nicotine that is present in the smoke emanating from the cigarettes.

 

Common nicotine strengths that are used:

 

Strength of 0: No nicotine present in the electronic cigarettes

Strength of up to 4 mg nicotine: This is the mildest form where there is very little nicotine present in the smoke that is inhaled by the person.

Strength of 10-14 mg nicotine: This is a higher level of nicotine. This can be considered to be moderate nicotine strength and this is used by people who have been addicted to nicotine for a long time.

Strength of about 24mg of nicotine: This is the highest strength of the nicotine that is present in the electronic cigarettes and this is used by the people who have been addicted for a very long time. This is also the highest strength of nicotine that is available in the electronic cigarettes.

 

So, what nicotine strength do I need?

 

Now that you know of the various nicotine strengths that are available in the electronic cigarettes, you should also know the actual nicotine strength that is needed by you. The truthful answer is that you should use the strength that you are used to. If you have been using a very light cigarette, then the mild strength of nicotine at 4 mg should be the best for you. On the other hand, if you are used to a higher dose or a stronger brand of cigarettes, then you should use the electronic cigarettes that have 14 mg nicotine strength.

 

Similarly, if you are used to smoking a lot of cigarettes that are string, then you should use the electronic cigarettes that have a maximum strength of 24mg. So, the strength of the nicotine that you should use in the electronic cigarettes will depend on the type of cigarettes that you have been smoking before.

 

What if you want to quit using nicotine too?
