Depends on the atomiser! Back when I started the 901s in 2008 I got lucky and the supplier I used had the most powerful 901 atties I have ever tried easily beating the 510! An atomiser that strong seems hard to come by these days sadly.

For me, 18mg is about equivalent to a light cig as a general rule. I smoked American Spirit lights and Ultra lights previously. As many have stated, a lot depends on the juice and the device.
I smoked Marlboro Reds and I am currently very happy with 36mg. It can be a little too strong sometimes and I have to be careful about using my PV like a pacifier or I'll get nic'd out... For the most part, though, 36mg is the sweet spot for me.
Marlboro Medium 100's here and Innovapors ULTRApure in 36mg keeps me in line. My pv of choice is a 6v chameleon and I mainly use 901 and 510 atomizers.
Based on some very sketchy data on nicotine blood levels that I read, my theory is that you need about 120 mg juice to equal the absorbed nicotine in an analog. Probably even stronger.
Of course nobody uses 120 mg juice, but that's because vapers take a lot more puffs per day than cigarette smokers. ( I know I do.)
So, 6 puffs on some 20 mg juice might equal 1 puff on 120 mg juice, or 1 puff on an analog.
Yes, I know there are a lot of variables, but that's my guess.
The point is that when comparing vaping and analog cigarettes you must include the greater number of puffs that the vaper typically takes every day.

I smoked 3 packs of marlboro red. I vape 36 mg.which is what it takes to keep me satisfied. I have tried to go down but it didn't work.

I found that 18-20mg was good with a 36mg kicker when needed, just a couple of drops to kill a craving. I mostly vape 12mg now. Nic strength is as subjective as taste when it comes to the liquid. There aren't any set rules for what you need to vape compared to what you used to smoke.
