Although vaping can have its risks, it is far less dangerous than smoking tobacco.

The biggest problem that can occur when choosing to vape without nicotine undoubtedly concerns traditional smokers. Trying to vape without nicotine might leave them dissatisfied and thus lead them to come back to cigarettes. Since we already know that vaping is much better for the body, the wisest choice for smokers would be to accept vaping with nicotine.

If you are a non-smoker and not addicted to nicotine, but still want to try vaping, then opting for a nicotine-free e-liquid might be the best option for you. It would make you less susceptible to addiction. However, keep in mind that the addiction is not purely physical. It is possible to become mentally addicted to vaping without nicotine. For example, some people become addicted to the gestures associated with vaping or to the sensation of inhaling and exhaling a cloud of vapour. This is precisely why vaping is so effective as a treatment for traditional smokers. It satisfies not only physical addiction but also mental and behavioural addiction.

How to vape without nicotine? 

Vaping is most commonly associated with the use of nicotine, but it doesn’t have to be. Nicotine is not necessary for vaping and many people prefer to vape without it. 

Most e-liquids are sold with a nicotine-free option. If you want to reduce your nicotine intake, it is recommended to reduce it gradually, rather than going directly to a nicotine-free e-liquid. When you suddenly stop using nicotine, it is likely to cause several side effects such as headaches, sweating and nausea. 

Since e-liquid is available in varying levels of nicotine strength, simply switch to a lower amount every few weeks until you finally reach your goal.

What are the advantages of vaping without nicotine? 

Those who don’t use nicotine say the e-liquid tastes better. It has more flavour and it causes less tingling. However, some people, especially former smokers, feel great nostalgia for this famous tingle and find that they do not appreciate vaping without nicotine as much. 

Thus, ex-smokers sometimes choose to outgrow this habit by tapering the dose to lower levels of nicotine, until they no longer need it at all.

On the other hand, some people have never smoked traditional cigarettes, but enjoy vaping. This group of people can include, for example, people who like to vape in the evening, and people who find pleasure in creating large clouds of smoke or trying different flavours of e-liquids. Whatever the reason, nicotine isn’t necessarily required to enjoy the joys of vaping.
