Side Effects of Vaping

Recent scientific research is uncovering some more serious side effects of vaping.

Side Effects Of Vaping

For example, research conducted at the UNC Center for Environmental Medicine, Asthma, and Lung Biology, shows vaping has the same effect as smoking when it comes to suppressing immune genes.

Exploring all the Negatives of E-Cigs

Before we discuss the vaping side effects, let’s get three important things out of the way first: Political Influence

Most online discussions regarding effects of vaping eventually become polluted with political garbage. Here’s why:

The vaping industry is booming like there’s no tomorrow. According to REJournals.com, The Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) predicted that the vaping industry would be worth more than $10 billion by 2017. Bloomberg suggested that in the United States alone there were more than 3,500 vape shops in 2013, and that number surely has grown a lot since then.

It’s a fact that politicians and governments can’t help getting involved wherever there’s big money.

Side effects of vaping are:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dizziness
  • Cough
  • Dry skin
  • Itchiness
  • Dry eyes
  • Insomnia (mainly a quitting side effect)
  • Nosebleeds
  • Bleeding gums[/listright]

Like any other substance, this is not a complete list of its side effects. On the other hand, it’s true that some users never experience any of these uncomfortable problems.

Side Effects of Vaping – Myth or Fact

It is a fact that when you introduce any substance into the human body to which it is not accustomed, there can be side effects. So, no matter if you inhale, ingest or even just touch certain chemical substances, your body will show certain adverse effects.

E-liquids used for vaping are no different. But hey, even the safest foods we eat can sometimes result in side effects!

E-liquids contain three major components, including a VG/PG base, nicotine, and flavoring. These are either chemicals or substances derived through chemical processes. Therefore, it means that vaping will have certain side effects, which can range from temporarily dry mouth to serious health issues. If there is nicotine in the e-juice, then that also adds another dimension to some of the side effects. Particularly if the user had never smoked cigarettes or had any other exposure to nicotine.

Vaping Side Effects & Research

Although it has a long history, its surge in popularity is a relatively new thing. We are talking about e-cigs and other clever vaporizers. Like other new habit-forming behaviors, such as Internet addiction or tanning dependency, this is a recent subject of research.

Amazingly, you can still find many studies on vaping. A worldwide survey gives more insights on its beneficial and negative effects in people’s minds. Some of the research report the adverse effects in current and former smokers are:

  • Dry mouth
  • Sore mouth
  • Headache
  • Tongue inflammation
  • Black tongue
  • Dizziness

  • Sleepiness
  • Sleeplessness
  • Allergies
  • Chest pain
  • Breathing problems

We can also observe some changes in some users’ emotional state, sexual performance and memory. Another study shows that the short-term effects that vaping has on the lungs are similar to the ones from smoking. Data shows some of the adverse side effects may entirely or partially resolve over time. It depends on various individual factors and the history of use.

Side effects of vaping

Side Effects vs. Body’s Resistance to Accepting Vapor

Most of the side effects are usually temporary and nothing but an initial reaction by the body to vapor. Overall, when your body becomes regular to it, the side effects usually disappear within a few hours or days at most.

Lack of Long-Term Data

We are unaware of the long-term negative effects of vaping on the human body.

Vaping: Chronic Diseases & Data

Negative side effects are a fact, but when you compare it to smoking, the vaporizer seems more harmless. Let’s explore the relation between chronic diseases and vaping. The majority of users with chronic diseases, report improvement in their condition after switching from smoking to vaping. These conditions includes hypertension, diabetes, asthma, and chronic obstructive lung disease. The public health social scientist Gerry Stimson confirms those results.

Vaping: Incidents & Usage

Some of the negative side effects of it may be because of improper usage. Vape explosions are some of the common incidents that can be very dangerous. Therefore, always familiarize yourself with the structure of your vapes and the nicotine levels in them.

Also, never forget that ingesting nicotine can be lethal. That’s why always keep your vaporizers away from kids and pets. If some pure nicotine falls on your skin, do not lick it but wash it off.

How to Minimize the Side Effects of Vaping

Fortunately, you can eliminate most side effects of vaping or at least reduce them by taking simple precautionary measures. Since there can be different reasons for different effects, let’s talk about each of them one by one.

Dry Mouth and Skin Issues

Dehydration due to vaping can cause dry mouth or dry throat, itchy, flaky, and red skin, and several other side effects. Vapor has the nature to attract water molecules from the surroundings, and you will feel it in your mouth.
If you experience any of these issues, drinking plenty of fluids can dramatically minimize the condition. Some of these side effects might be a blessing in disguise, e.g. dry skin in the case of people who have a very oily skin. However, staying hydrated is still essential.

Dizziness

Excessive nicotine intake can cause dizziness. If you’re feeling dizzy, you are probably taking more nicotine than your body can handle. This effect is commonly associated with sub-ohm when large plumes of vapor are entering your body. Luckily, fixing this issue is just a matter of switching to e-liquid with a lower nicotine strength, or vaping at a higher resistance.

Caffeine Sensitivity

Many people who switch to vaping, feel subtle withdrawals and tend to drink more coffee or other caffeinated drinks. Early days of using a vaporizer can cause caffeine sensitivity and result in anxiety and mood swings. Just reduce your intake of caffeine and all these symptoms will quickly dissipate.

Allergies

As we mentioned earlier, almost all e-juices come with a PG/VG base. Despite being considered “generally safe” by FDA, PG can trigger a few allergies. VG, on the other hand, is derived from vegetables and goes easy on your system. So, if you’re vaping high PG e-liquids and experience allergies, switching to high VG e-liquid can be helpful.

Canker Sores

Canker sores (don’t confuse them with cold sores) are small, shallow blisters inside the mouth; the cause has several reasons such as injury to the mouth, vitamin deficiency, acidic and spicy foods, hormone disorders, stress, and vaping.

However, vapor or e-liquids don’t have anything to do with canker sores, but failure to keep the mouthpiece clean is the issue. Anything you put into your mouth should always be clean, especially the e-cig mouthpiece that tends to accumulate a lot of gunk.

Is secondhand exposure dangerous?

The main difference between smoking and vaping is that there’s no burning of any substances in vaping. Therefore, there’s no combustion. As a consequence, it is not so dangerous to the people around us and the environment. However, studies show that various toxic substances are released during vaping. And that’s why they should implement more legal restrictions.

Secondhand Exposure & Risks

Although there’s no carbon emission in vaping, some researchers believe that secondhand exposure can be harmful. The allergist Chitra Dinakar reports that children are more sensitive to toxic substances. Doing studies that involve exposing someone to dangerous and harmful substances is not ethical. As a result, we cannot report some of the other negative effects of e-cigs.

The truth is that studies have actually found many toxic ingredients in the vapor. Some of them can even cause cancer. Therefore, we need strict restrictions on age and indoor and outdoor areas. We need more studies on the consequences of secondhand exposure. It is especially important concerning pregnant women and people with heart problems.

Vaping & Addiction

Like with any other habit, vaping can lead to addiction. Even pulling your hair as a compulsive need can become an annoying routine. Psychological dependence on vaping also has an effect. Sometimes the habit itself is addictive and can lead to withdrawal symptoms when a habitual vaper is not able to vape. It isn’t always necessary for there to be a drug involved.

With the popularity of vaping in mind, some health charities are concerned that many minors might decide to start. Always educate your children or younger siblings about possible health dangers and risks of addiction. Nicotine can have serious side effects on the developing brain of a teenager. It is definitely best to make sure that a teen never starts vaping at all, but especially if the e-juice contains nicotine.

Conclusion

A lot of research is currently underway to find out more negative side effects of vaping, but it will be a while before we get to see the results. Vaping side effects can be from short-term, minor issues to something so severe that you might have to stop vaping – though the latter is extremely rare. Therefore, we recommend keeping an eye on your health when you switch to vaping and immediately consult your doctor if you notice serious side effects of vaping.

I was a smoker for over 25 years. In this time I also earned my medical degree with a specialization in addiction treatment and counseling. That period has led me to vaping, my interest started around 2011. I’m fighting the tide of hysteria and dis-information around vaping that emanates from various fronts legislative, cultural and scientific. Having scientific councils support, I’m happy to contribute my thoughts, articles, and expertise.

    To people who are using vapers instead of smoking. Does anyone get bad side effects. Like painfully stomach acid and bloating. Dry mouth and hoarse voice and.ending up with difficulty trying to speak,.. I have c.o.p.d. .I don’t know if this is why I suffer so much with these side effects……it makes me feel so sick that i go back to cigarettes. I’m on this cycle. Any help or info would be much appreciated.. Thanks in advance.

      I switched to vaping about 5 months ago. I was a two pack a day smoker for 20 yrs, so your mileage may vary. I noticed years ago that my health was going down. I am very active and workout a lot (I know it is counter intuitive), but everything just felt horrible. I would try to quit smoking and every time I would be horrible in the gym. This would be 2-3 months after quitting smoking. I think it was a mental thing, but quitting wouldn’t work and I would go back to smoking. I have to say that I thouroughly enjoy vaping and I feel great. It is the best I have felt in years. Granted, sometimes I do get an increase in heartburn and allergies, but that depends on the juice. Some affect it differently. I wish the best for you and stay away from the cigs! : )

      My girlfriend has COPD and she can not vape. She coughs so bad she can’t breathe whenever she tries. I, however, have been vaping since 2012 and I feel better than I have in years. More energy, easier breathing, more stamina, less colds, and when I do get a cold it lasts for less than a week. The annoying cough goes away with the cold. And the ever present cough is gone as well. I started with tobacco flavored vape juice asset a 24mg. I bought a drip cape that was about the size and weight of a cigarette. I had smoked for 30 years before I tried this. I now vape a sub-oms at 6mg. I can comfortably go 6 hours without vaping, I haven’t tried more lol. I don’t get that gotta have a cigarette feeling at all. I think this is an excellent way too quit smoking. Maybe trying a drip would work? Consult with your doctor first because of COPD though.

      Maybe your nicotine dose in the juice is too high. Try something like 3-6 mg.

      Honestly vaping for a year and a half, I quit smoking cigarettes after 20 years of being a half pack a day smoker. I’ve never experienced shortness of breath of breathing through the mouth like this article claims, yet I used to get it all the time as a smoker. Am I out of the clear, no. But Will be easier to quit vaping than it was to quit smoking

      I started smoking in the Army at age 19. Once I quit for a year, quit for three years, quit for two and quit for eight years and always started again. I’m sixty three now and started vaping three years ago but just quit smoking fourteen months ago. Though, I have smoking about a half pack, bumming from friends, in that time but have not bought any cigs. I started vaping with 26mg nicotine and am down to 16mg and am stepping lower each time I buy a 120 ml bottle of my favorite juice. I tried the tobacco flavors but they got to tasting bad and now I’m using a juice called Fairytale. It’s fruity and seems to satisfy me. As far as side effects…..I do feel somewhat congested at times but not much. No crackle in the throat like with cigs or cigars. I don’t do the BIG cloud thing. I just vape as a replacement to smoking. My wife is concerned and tagged me on this link and that’s why I’m here now.

        I have been vaping for 50days today. Very exciting for an old girl to stop the 30+ per day after 42 years of it😆. I read a plethora of info about quitting and bought every form of quit aid(including vape gear)before quit day. When I read that the general consensus from doctors was that vaping does 95% less damage than smoking(probably because of the 3 to 9 thousand chemicals in a smoke), I have thought of that every day since. It was like I studied smoking cessation for a couple of months before I quit, but this was all I needed to know really. Who knows? I might give yhe vape up one day. Love it

        I have been vaping for a month. So tired of the cigarette fiasco. I have not read anything that condemns vaping enough to go back to cigs. I am hoping to reduce my vaping so I feel I am doing something good for my body. The perfect thing for me would be to quit vaping, which I hope to do in the future. The main thing for me is to get rid of all of the harmful things that are in cigarette smoke. Good luck to all and I hope for a brighter future-

        Me too! There is something in vape juice that makes my head feel really weird. I’m also trying to find someone else with the same issue, because everyone I tell has no idea what I’m talking about. I also feel like I am going crazy. It is so frustrating because I do a ton of research and there is absolutely nothing on the issue I’m having. Everyone I tell says I’m having too much nicotine but that’s not possible, it is something else. Anyway, it’s nice to know one other person with an issue like mine.

          I just started vaping. Smoker for close to 40 years. Day 1 of vaping I felt an immediate change to my lungs and for the first time in a long time I didn’t cough myself to sleep. Wonderful! I was sold on vaping! Using 3mg nicotine juice. I walked a great distance for the first time in years and wasn’t out of breath or sweating profusely. I’ve always responded well to medications/dietary changes in the past… but this was amazing even to me. That 2nd night, fell asleep with no cough again… but woke up in the middle of the night filled with anxiety, head feeling disoriented and felt I couldn’t hold a proper thought. I had read about dehydration and drank water (5-6 glasses) throughout the day to offset any side effects. However In the middle of the night when I awoke my mouth, throat and nasal cavity were so dry it hurt to get that first sip of water down. I did manage to get back to sleep, and I haven’t vaped today… but I still feel anxious and scattered. I found this thread by digging deeper into side effects information as well. Wondering if it may be an adverse medication/chemical interaction side effect?

            Thats most likely due to nicotine withdrawal. I had to start @ 12mg and work down to 6 and then 3.

            Look up tobacco withdrawal symptoms. They include what you talk about. Might be more of that than symptoms of vaping. Remember you are giving up something with a lot of chemicals your body has relied on for a very long time

            Yep I’d also say not enough nicotine! Start at 12, did so myself one year ago. Now I’m at 1.5. I do mtl (mouth to lung, no big clouds), if you vape with lots of clouds and high wattage, might start at 6 to 9. I know heavy smokers who started at 20 mg, the highest concentration of nicotine in liquid you buy legally in Germany.
            Nicotine is one of the strongest drugs around, supposedly weird that it’s legal compared with some illegal drugs

      Ive smoked 32 yrs. Ive tried vapor pens a few times & never worked. I hated the taste. But I finally found one I liked. The Cue had disposable cartridges with oil in them & I loved the Fresh Melon 6 mg. But it was costing too much so I went with a different device that I could refill & I was only spending $20 a wk & now I hate the smell of cigs. Over 2 mo.now & I never cough when I wake up like I did with cigs. It has never made me cough ever.( unless you smoke too strong mg like a 12 mg, yikes) My hair & clothes & house smell so much better. You notice how bad cig smoke smelled. Im so glad I switched to vapor. I paid $34 for one but Im looking at a more expensive mod type.( it takes a while to learn all about it). I like the fruity flavors more that the creamy, dessert flavors.

Within the first year I noticed he no longer coughs or spits up various fluids in the morning. I no longer hear him wheezing on the couch next to me, or at night in bed. I cannot say everyone will have this type of result I can only speak from personal experience.

      I am searching this site because I have been sick (nausea) really bad headaches and my neck hurt like hell. I couldn’t figure out what was causing it. Once I thought about it I realized it started right after I got back from vacation . At that time I changed my atomizer . This has happened to me before. Now I know that it was from a bad atomizer. Like I said this has happened to me before. So yes it can make you sick. I will no longer buy Kanger Tek atomizers because it only happens when I use that brand.

      I too have COPD and also stage 3 lung cancer (controlled but not cured yet ) and truth be told…anyone with copd needs to inhale ANY CHEMICAL SUBSTANCES into their lungs. It’s jist asking for trouble. If you need the nicotine and have to have something then switch to nicotine gum. Keep in mind though that nicotine in and of itself comes with health risks such as cardiovascular diseases and an increased risk for blood clots and stroke. I miss smoking every day (the act not the stinky smell) but if I want to have a shot at living beyond my current age of 48…I can never smoke again. Be well 😊😊

      I don’t have any side effects whatsoever when I vape. However I use it maybe a few time every other day, not too too often. Maybe the more you inhale certain things from the juices your body may not be used to it and may be reacting to it. However I have never had any of the issues you’ve discribed. See if in-taking less vaper would help. (I don’t think the vaping is causing the issues in the first place though) It May just be from certain things you are eating.

      Sounds like you needed a lower nicotine level. I havent noticed any side effects since switching from smoking to a refillable vape.
      I tried switching a few times in the past. The first time it wasnt strong enough so I still craved cigarettes and switched back. The next time it was stronger but I still had the habit so I hit it too much. I’d get nauseous and light-headed. After another try or 2 I finally got it right and havent touched a cigarette since. Dedication to switching is needed in the beginning but after awhile it works. I tried smoking once while drinking a few weeks ago and the cigarette was so nasty I put it right back out.

      If your having all of those side effects, try what the article said…change juice and reduce the nicotine. Example I’m gaping at 6, I would drop to 3 and see how it goes. In addition, you sound like there’s a lot more going on which the gaping might just be bringing to the surface. Good luck!!

      I’ve had these effects aswell but I only have the effects when I’m excessively vaping at one period of time like I’ll take 30 hits in like 10 minutes because me and friends hot boxed aswell which the vapor they let out aswell reaches me (we all have atleast 150 watt vapes) so I think that if Your over doing it like that then yes it’ll hit you I used to smoke and I smoked 3 cigs in a room I’ll feel sick and nausea will effect me but that’s because I was over using it like my vape but that’s not the vapes fault but our own cause we’re not being responsible enough with our vapes and overuse the privaledge their used to help people quit cigarettes not look cool and blow the biggest clouds we possibly can with high wattage levels before it was a big thing and all you have where the $15 vape pens in gas stations (which I’ve used before getting a 80 watt then now I have a 200 watt) where only 15 watts and people didn’t use them so much since they’re just trying to quit cigarretes I feel like if people don’t stop abusing their privaledge then yes we’re gonna have negative effects and it may lead to more serious symptoms

        I use the vape that you buy in the service stations and mine has 1.9 ml. of nicotine. I don’t know what that equals to in mgs. but i don’t have any of the side effects that has bee discussed. I do know that i have COPD, and allergies. since i stopped smoking cigarettes i don’t hve to use my inhalers i breathe better and best of all my doctors haven’t told me recentlyy how bad my lungs sound. I only vape when i really need the nicotine and I’m careful about how much i use, if i vape to much it causes my throat to burn. So i think vaping responsibly is the key to a lot of the negative side effects

      the nausea, dizziness, and light-headedness can occur if youre vaping too much. the first day i transitioned to vaping, i threw away my cigs and i havent touched one since, that was 3 years ago. when i would get dizzy, light headed and nauseous, it was because i was vaping alot in a short amount of time. vaping 5ml of juice with a 6mg nicotine level in maybe a 45 minute time period is (for me) like smoking 10 cigs in 45 minutes. as for the heartburn, it really depends on the juice, flavor, and sometimes the wattage. if youre vaping a thicker juice with a flavoring that contains a higher amount of sweetener than your average juice at a high wattage, its going to be a very warm vape, and thats usually when people experience heartburn. i never had that issue though. the nasal cavity pressure and tingling in finger/toe tips ive never heard of anyone experiencing, id consult your doctor about that. the nasal cavity thing might (and thats a big might) be caused by an allergic reaction you may have. alot of shops out there who make their own juice are using disgusting methods of doing so, theres a shop 5 minutes away from where i live that i bought a flavor from and within a week of vaping on it i started to get sick. i swotched to another juice from another shop and my sickness went away. your safest bet is to buy juice from a trusted shop youve been to before or to buy from a trusted, well known website (such as vapordna). hope this helps you!

      The effects you described are normal reactions to excessive nicotine. Go to an e-liquid with a lower nicotine level until you no longer experience the uncomfortable side effects. Easy peasy.

      Try lowering your nicotine level and make sure you take a few breaths in between I know it sounds dumb but when i first started i was a hit after hit kinda person then when I realized i needed to breath it became a lot better

      No, you shouldnt worry, you need to look at what your juice is made of and what concentration of vg you have, a 70/30 VG/PG is a good safe mix, also look at lowering your nicotine intake, that could be causing your symptoms.

      That’s not accurate. When propelyne glycol and glycerine, both chemicals in the vapor, are heated to a high temperature, they degrade into formaldehyde (the chemical used for preserving dead bodies) and acetaldehyde, and both of those chemicals are carcinogenic.

        They didn’t say Vaping is more harmful than smoking. They are merely pointing out both have their disadvantages and negative health implications. Surely you can’t think sucking chemicals through metal coils and cotton wool can be harmless for you?! Especially if you are adding nicotine on top of this?! If you do then you must be extremely naive.

Why, you ask because there are those who smoke cigarettes and that is what give you side effect.and then go to vaping OR there cholest. is high from cigarettes .Vaping has been around since The ancient egyptian times. There has never been any record of side effects I guess people like to assume when they smoke 3 packs a day then blame it on vaping. Don’t believe everything on the web.

    I’ve been vaping for about 6 weeks after being a pack a day smoker for 40 years. I felt really good the first week or so but then came down with one of the worst colds I’ve had in my life! I couldn’t breathe, my lungs were wet like a swamp, had to go on antibiotics. The ordeal lasted for weeks. OK, cold is gone but I still don’t have the breathing capabilities as when i smoked! I am suspecting the vaping but I feel too vulnerable to stop…scared that I will go back to smoking. What i want to know is: has anybody else had problems breathing after switching to vaping?

I still feel like I am having a hard time breathing and even more when I exercise or go out for a walk. so I am not sure why? It didn’t feel like this when I smoked cigarettes? It says your lungs should start clearing out about three months after putting down butts. I would think it would be immediately after. so I am also worried because I like my e cigarette and dont want to give it up. I guess i will see how it goes in the next month? .

      The Harvard press release drawing attention to diacetyl in e-juice caused alarm among vapers and quickly became ammunition for vaping opponents who now had a life-threatening, rare lung disease on their side. But the Harvard press release left out key information. Most significantly, diacetyl exposure from cigarette smoking is significantly higher than exposure from vaping, perhaps as much as 750 times higher. This doesn’t make vaping safe, but it supports the argument that vaping is safer than smoking traditional cigarettes. The Harvard press release also failed to mention that there’s no established link between popcorn lung and vaping.

      Yes popcorn lung exists, but as long as you buy vape juice from a store and not anything made in china you wont get it, it happens when oil sits in your lungs. Do not worry about catching popcorn lung from a vape juice, just dont buy it from gas stations, only local.stores, and make sure it is only vegetable glycerin (VG), and propylene glycol (PG), and nicotine if thats what you use, but you can get it without nic.

    I used to smoke cigars daily, and it had been 4 years of that…but i started feeling way out of shape from it, because it suppressed my mood and caused a feeling of temporary stress relief which didn’t make my problems go away, and also made me feel more sluggish which in turn slowed me down.. though when i switched 100% to vaping only i felt the same addiction, and i was told by every vaping shop around that it was 100% safe, after a year of vaping I noticed weird popping sounds when i’d exhale, and a weird pain in my chest, rite between my shoulder blades in my core. i thought nothing of it…but after another six months this pain increased… to the point where i’d have to take pain killers every morning at 3:00 am, like clock work every day… So needless to say I’ve quite cold turkey, I feel allot better, I also have started working out again, which gives me a real sense of stress relief and one that lasts.

    I think many people vape because like smoking it relives stress, and also feels relaxing. Unfortunately working out initially is allot harder but the benefits far out weigh the smoking and vaping. Which i’m sure everyone on hear already knows…and thats why this forum even exists…because people are noticing there health dwindling,

    Just my 2 cents… wish everyone on hear good health!

    It amazes me how nicotine addicts cannot believe that it is a deadly substance. They makes excuses and refuse to accept facts. Whether you vape or smoke, you are fooling yourself if you think nicotine is safe. Please do yourself a favor, stop wasting your money and abusing your body. Stop the unhealthy habit that has no value, except making the tobacco industry richer. Take a hold of your life. Vaping is only a crutch and introduces new younger generation. As a country,we have spent billions to educate citizens about the harmful effects of smoking, and yet we are now seeing a surge in vaping in teens.

    Vaping is a miracle. I haven’t smoked one cigarette in over a year now and there is no doubt it is because vaping helped me kick the habit and I feel incredibly liberated from the bonds of evil, nasty, smelly cigarettes.

    I had my yearly checkup about 2 weeks ago. I didn’t mention to my doctor that I quit smoking. After listening to my chest and lungs, my DOCTOR said “you quit smoking? Your lungs sound very clear” and I responded with a joyous YES!

    The difficulty in quitting smoking is that, let’s face it, you’re quitting something you enjoy. Vaping is an analog for cigarettes, therefore you’re not giving up the smoking experience – just giving up the hundreds of carcinogenic compounds, smell, expense, filth and social stigma of being a cigarette smoker while still enjoying a puff.

    Vaping is a different taste so it takes some commitment but once you get used to it, you’ll wonder how you ever smoked disgusting cigarettes.

    My first day I committed to quit using a vape was a cakewalk. I couldn’t believe how easy my first day was and I never looked back.

    I switched to vaping two years ago. It was not my first attempt but rather the third or the fourth. I was happy that I finally said bye-bye to my Camel light. I really enjoyed the vaping using my RTA and RDA for awhile until I started experiencing some dizziness and occasional headaches .. I reduced the necotine level from 12 to 6 and then down to 3. I felt ok for six or seven months , then the problems returned. Headaches, high blood pressure, diarrhea. I’m not sure what to do. I don’t want to go back to smoking but the vaping makes me feel not good either…

    Vaping: I have been vaping for over 3 years now after smoking for 20 years. In the last week I have moved to vaping with Zero nicotine, And the changes to the body are unbelievable. Switching from a Tabaco product to a Vape if you have been a smoker for a long period will see you sometimes having a cold in the first few weeks maybe months on and off. For myself I was still coughing up tar 6 months after quitting.

    In the last week removing the nicotine from my Vape has had the following changes..

    My skin is visibly clearer.
    I am able to breath through my nose a lot easier.
    My eyes do not feel so dry, The whites of my eyes seem whiter.
    Hart burn at night has all but vanished.
    I am getting off to sleep so much easier.

    all this in under a week, So for me the removal of the nicotine from the Vape is 95% positive, Though there were withdrawal symptoms but very mild, nothing like when you try quitting the Tabaco product not even close. So what I did with regard to withdrawal symptoms is to have two tanks one with 0 nicotine the other with 0.3.. I would do my best to go as long as I could without taking in the nicotine 0.3. Then use the 0.3 tank just the once or twice a day.. In less than a week I know longer needed the 0.3 I just hit on the 0 Vape now. The next move is to remove the Vape altogether.

    However I did step down gradually..

    1.2mg
    0.8mg
    0.6mg
    0.3mg
    0mg nicotine

    I’m new to vaping. Can someone please tell me how much juice you are supposed to vape at one time? Or do you just smoke like a ml or 2 per day.? How much is good? How much is bad? I’m so confused.

    Our daughter recently started vaping. Though she doesn’t do in the house, she blew the smoke towards my face and now my face is tingly all over. Could I be having allergic reaction to the chemicals from the Vape?

      That is a possibility, I know several people that have an allergy to the Propylene glycol that is one of the main ingredients to pretty much all vape juice. But, it could also be caused by a food allergy you may have from something your daughter had recently ate. Further more it could also be the particular ingredients in the natural/artificial flavoring in that certain juice she was using. If you do NOT experience swelling, rashes/hives, redness from irritation or itchyness. You are most likely just experiencing the feeling of the vapor on your skin for the first time. Since the skin on your face is very sensitive the vapor should feel cold and may leave a sort of sticky film on your skin. Almost like a humid climate would. However if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms you should consult your doctor right away.

      Vapes are hypoallergenic, if anything its probably just that your having a little paranoia over something that doesnt have a lot of information and since its new your a little afraid of it having some unforseen effect.

    I smoked cigarettes for over 45 years and to help me quit smoking, I started vaping on Jan 12, 2018. I have not smoked a cigarette since and I am very happy to be an ex-smoker, because I had tried many times over the years to stop smoking but always went back to smoking .I have noticed a tremendous change in my health…I used to cough and have to clear my throat frequently and when I went to lay down to sleep night, I had coughing fits…that has all stopped!!! So I view vaping as a method of smoking cessation. I initially stared vaping with JUUL,but since you buy pods that contain a fixed amount of nicotine, you cannot taper down. I switched to Vapor4life products so that I can buy a lower nicotine content E-juice. Since it’s only been 2 months, I am presently using a 1.1 nicotine content E-Juice, but I intend to gradually taper down the nicotine level. .

    I’ve been doing what I can to stop smoking, like a lot of you who have commented. Vaping for me is the answer. However, I’ve seem to be getting a skin reaction, and trouble sleeping. At first I thought it might be the medications I take and so did my doctors. Stopped the meds and still having this terrible rash and itching, headaches, and sleepless nights. Only thing I can think of is it has to be the vape juice. I’ve tried to search for answers on forums and chat rooms like this and still no concrete evidence. Like most of you who are trying to quit, I started at a high level of nicotine and have dropped down to 6 mg now from 12mg. I need to just quit all together but I’m afraid if I don’t vape, I’ll smoke cigarettes again. Ugh…!!! Any help I can get at this point would be greatly appreciated.

    Ive been vaping 3mg for a while now and the headaches have gone down a lot. However, with this low nicotine level I feel like I often get withdrawals quicker. Also I have noticed that I tend to like to vape in my room constantly and when I am at work, in town, with friends hanging out, or in a lecture hall I always have this insatiable want (but feels like a need). I went on a vacation for a week and was irritable for about 4 days because I left my vape at home so I could enjoy the trip and I noticed that I was a lot more active and could be content in a low-excitement situation without my vape. Can anyone else relate to this right now or has been through it and can give advice (without saying the obvious “just quit”)? I feel like I’m not living the best life I could be. Thanks.

    Vaping is not suppose to replace cigs. It is to help you quit all together. If you continue to do vaping as long as smoking I can guarantee their will be side effects. Nicotine is a cancer causing substance. And long term could most deffinitely cause cancer as well…

      I have the same thing. It started about a year in and i’ve vaped for 5 years. I’ve had to back to smoking due to red blotches around my nose, upper lip and hairline on my head.
      Ive been back to smoking 6 months now and redness/flakyness is gone. Last week started vaping and symptoms returned. Ive tried 100% vg and 100% pg. The last 4 years i vaped unflavored 6mg….about 8ml/day.
      I wish i could keep vaping 🙁

I did noticed that my body feels weightless not that I am losing weight but feel different. I do however, suffer from insomnia. The first couple of days I went through a withdrawal not so bad but it is getting better. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    I have copd and when vapour from e-cigarettes is around me. It causes severe constriction and some pain in my lungs. This is far worse than when exposed to cigarette smoke. As a result of people thinking vaping is acceptable now. They think nothing of vaping indoors or allowing a cloud of vapour over anyone.
    It doesn’t appear that any research has been done on this.

    I have been vaping for 10 odd years, I haven’t had much problems except when using high nicotine levels, I now am on 3mg and the only real side effect I get is hiccups if I vape certain flavours and that’s when I vape in the morning. I don’t know why that happens but it’s very annoying. I love vaping though. I started smoking at 12 and at 28 gave up after trying nhs provided help which didn’t help one bit. So I tried vaping and I never looked back. Hiccups though still get me and I seem to be odd because I never hear of anyone else who gets it.

    I was a chronic user of vape pens. Otherwise, I have a very healthy lifestyle and vegan diet. I had a horrible outbreak of dermatitus. Red dry itchy skin on my eyelids, under arns, back of my knees and inner thighs. I was easily getting dehydrated. BTW Vape fluid (p. glycol) is also used as Anti-Freeze in motor vehicles.
    WHEN YOU VAPE YOU ARE SMOKING ANTI-FREEZE. WTF? I WAS ABLE TO QUIT OUT OF FEAR FOR MY HEALTH.

    I have been doing some research on ejuice, vaping and am quiet shocked. Why I’m researching is cause about 3 months ago my husband started vaping after giving up cigar smoking and he thought it was great but since his health has made a dramatic turn around. I hadn’t made a connection till a few days ago but he has been having major panic attacks, shaking, heart palpitations in fact the list is so long we had to call an Ambulance last week. At that stage I still hadn’t even thought it had anything to do with him using the Vapour thing but I have found some proper research articles that have described him to a T. I don’t want to know about the mg of nicotine as he wasn’t on a high dose at all and some that supposedly had none but I’m just wanting to know as I’m desperate is has anybody else had these side effects? Please I’m not bagging anything I’m just desperate to know as I have been beside myself with worry about what’s going on with him. This is way out of character with him as he is not one to complain about sickness and he has had many blood tests lately and ecgs that aren’t showing anything. But I’m trying to piece together why he is so sick all the sudden that would be a massive coincidence to happen right when he started using his Vapour. Has anybody had anything like what I’m describing since starting using these juices? Thanks

Today is 5/21/18 and I havent bought cigs at all. I have hit a cig 3 seperate times only once and cannot stand it! I no longer have a cough or get shortness of breath…if there are negative and harmful health risks with vaping Id still vape as opposed to smoking. Cigs are disgusting now!

    a few things I would like to share as helpful advice. The higher the wattage you run the better atomization of the juice which means you don’t need as high of nicotine. example a pen vape at 18mg will atomize less nicotine than a 150 watt sub ohm tank with 6mg. chances are if you are experiencing a sore throat its either too many watts, mg of nicotine, or high pg to vg ratio. The throat hit comes more from the pg content while the flavor and cloud comes more from the vg

    I stop smoking 4 months ago and Im vaping. I think, vaping wasn’t too bad for health compared to smoking cigarettes and now I don’t feels like wanted to smoke cigarettes. I quit smoke cigg because the impact of it. Now I started to vaping and no problem. Few of my friends start to do the same thing and its a good result for us to quit smoking habbits but I’ll make sure to get consultations from doctor if I have bad side effect from vaping.

    i have quit smoking after 15 years of smoking 1 to 2 pack of cigarettes a day i will said that vaping was the best choice for me i can taste things better, smell things better, and i feel like i have more stamina now this is after a long and painful recovery from all the damage cigarettes and my self make to my body.
    the first weeks are going to be the worst, spelling a lot of mucus is where it starts them dizziness sometimes and anxiety but all of this is just your body healing and adapting to the change.
    now popcorn lungs are true and it was associated to vaping only because of popcorn flavor oils( that are not legal to sell anymore) they where associated as well with microwave popcorn but the chemical responsible for this sickness is again and i insist not legal anymore on the US

    now always be careful with your oil provider and vape safe

    I am a newbie to vaping after 40 years of smoking. I started with a 0.03 Nicotine juice . at first i started to cough when vaping and was told that is was maybe i have a small reaction to the PG in the juice so i switched to a higher VG which did seem to help . What i also noticed was that i mostly coughed when the vape was used after powering it up then after a a few minuets i stopped coughing .. It would seem to me that the initial inhhale on my vape would feel to hot when i inhaled a cause me to cough..
    Has anyone else experianced the same issues ???

Maybe it depends on how you use it, me I only used 80Vg/20Pg 65ml Juice on a 50 Watts, and hits 3 times then maybe after 2 to 3 hours do it again… I am not after on cloud chasing or to be in, like I’ve said earlier it’s just a replacement.for my nicotine craving, so far it’s doing good for me.

    I started vaping 4 years ago. Fitness has started to improve a lot as I have always exercised and have always been an active person. The changes were very obvious especially for tough hill climbs on mountain bike.
    The best thing of switching is the disappearance of the mucus in the throat in the morning and also the stinky cigarettes smells in my fingers , breath and through my nose.

    Started with 12mg nicotine and have stepped down to 6mg and I am very happy with this level of nicotine.

    Down-side is the you can Vape anywhere , anytime and basically the E-cig has become an extension of my hand and this is quite annoying.

    I’m currently vaping at 12mg of tobacco flavored vape juice right now with an icare refillable vape pen. I’m on my 3rd day of no cigarette and I have not felt an overwhelming urge to pick up a smoke like I thought I would. I have been vaping about two tanks a day so far and I plan to reduce the nicotine to 6mg in a couple weeks, then half that, then nicotine free at some point. I have to say when I woke up this morning and sat down with my cup of coffee and vape pen, I felt no tightening of the chest like I normally had waking up and having that first cig with my coffee. I was a smoker for 25 years 1 – 1 1/2 packs a day. The struggle is real though, I had to throw away all my cigarettes, ash trays etc, and I politely ask my friends to not smoke around me until I’m completely over my addiction to cigarettes. I think it will be ok though and I think mind set is 95% of the battle

      Sure; if you never smoked cigarettes, vaping may be harmful.

      BUT if u smoked a pack a day of cigarettes; like me. vaping is more healthy.

    Been vaping for 6 years since quitting cigs. Feel great I am 59 play Dek Hockey, Raquetball and am in some of the best shape of my life. Switching to vaping over cigs is a huge part of that. I use 3 percent nicotine and have 0 side effects. Maybe I’m just lucky that I was able to switch my habit without any of the issues others describe, but I really get irritated when people say that vaping is bad for me and I shouldn’t vape. I feel like lighting a cig and blowing the smoke in their face and ask if they like that better. Yes, vaping is another addiction in my opinion, but unless you were a smoker and understand that powerful deadly addiction, you can’t relate. I feel very lucky to have been able to quit cigs and switch the habit to something that makes me feel a lot better than smoking did.

    I started smoking at 17, and now at 49 I’ve started vaping. I was smoking a pack and a half a day, and started noticing I would get out of breath walking across a parking lot. The first week of vaping I smoked 1 or 2 cigs a day till what I had was gone. In the 3 months since I haven’t touched a cig. I still have the occasional craving for one, but I just take a couple good hits on my vape pen and the craving goes away. I’m using a Pulse pod that uses a nic salt type of juice. Started at 45mg nic level and am down to a 25mg level now. I think I will have to switch to a different type of pod to go lower on the nic level though. The only side effects I’ve noticed is the occasional gravel voice, and the dizziness if I hit it too much. But my blood pressure has dropped by 20 points on both numbers into the 120/70 range, my severe coughing fits and gagging are gone, my breathing is easier, and my sense of smell has been coming back. Oh, and I have COPD as well, so I can’t say that vaping has done anything but help my health so far. I tend to like the fruity flavors over the sweet stuff. I have no desire to try any tobacco flavored juices, afraid it’d create a desire for the cigs again. And I don’t want to go back to them again.

    Being a human being is bad for ya also. Go to California and breath the shirty air. Then complain about your side effects. Burning eyes etc….
    People who are frail and complain about their allergies all the time are the same little frail whips complaining about gaping. Its just like liberal democrats complaining about Trump when in reality Trump is doing what he said he would. No one want to be positive. There are so many complainers in this world. Whiners.. Babies….bitches. Get a life. Health issues? Go bitch about how monsanto. Is genetically modifying food. Stop the corruption in govt. Stop Hillary Clinton from raping 13 year old girls and killing them innocent girls for a satanic ritual. I’m positive Hillary Clinton has murdered more little children than a family has lost loved ones from vaping. So…go stop Hillary first….then ill listen to your stupid gaping problem and ill show you how easy it is to quit vaping….

    I’ve been using the Juul & Juul pods for over 6 months now, I wake up every morning spitting blood for 10-15 minutes Str8, I wanna quit but don’t wanna go back to smoking… Am I killing myself one way or another??? I think picking up the Juul was the worst thing I could’ve ever done, I feel like my stomach lining an esophagus is bleeding out within… Very scary, wonder if there is a lawsuit pending, would like to be compensated for what this is doing to my body & health!!! Ur killing us, the least we could do is be compensated for the damage ur causing our bodies!!

    I also use vape been using it for more than a year and i haven’t found any serious bad effect of vaping to me. what bugs me in this vlog/research is the conclusion why look for bad side effects to dis vaping why not look for the better effects of vaping. I know that finding the bad effects of vaping is good and all to prevent more damage but still why would you conclude that you’ll look for the bad effect. Why not conclude that you’ll look more into the good and bad effects of vaping and how to make it better or something like that.Other than this I have no more to say to the whole thing. It’s been informative actually. Its just that i dont like the conclusion lol

    I’ve read alot of these comments and i did a hell of alot of research on vaping, I’ll try and say as much as I know and this comes to me knowing alot of “vapers” and shop owners, as well as my 6 year experience and counting. Vaping as we know is not 100% healthy some may have different side effects to it some may have none. Vaping is a alternative to help quit smoking some turn it into a hobby some don’t it’s a “alternative” to quit smoking. Some of you pick up a vape and have side effects then mention you smoked for 20 30 40 years. You’re body is going through change period, it may have nothing to do with vaping, it may have to do with you’re body and the withdrawals from the ciggerets. It takes time to get use to something you have never done, JUST LIKE THE FIRST CIGGERET YOU SMOKED. You got dizzy,light headed,sick, and many other side effects over time you get use to it. Some may be allergic some may have reactions it’s normal not everyone is the same and not everyone’s body accepts things the same. All I know is my Dr. Wanted me on pills to quit I tried those and it was a nightmare literally. I picked up a vape and tinkered around to find the rite juice and vape that fit me and I tried alot and spent alot it was kinda like when I started smoking what kind of ciggeret I enjoyed. It’s normal for people with copd to have a reaction do to the lungs taking in a chemical and a vapor substance this doesn’t mean it’s bad it just means it irritates you not everyone. I’d say about 6 of my family members have quit smoking because of vaping and feel and look better than they did in many years. I also see the comments on the side effects and it has alot to do with the level of nicotine and the power of you’re vape as well as the flavor, find one that fits you not the one you’re friend blows giant clouds with because they been vaping for years and you want to fit in. I quit smoking and been vaping for years side effects dry mouth sometimes a dry throat because I try new juice and that has alot to do with it also sometimes fast heart rate because sometimes I get carried away and puff like crazy but overall me and my girlfriend vape and I’ll tell you the smell the hacking the gunk in my lungs all that is gone it takes years for you’re lungs to heal don’t forget and alot of the side effects and even sickness many go through are the cause of years of smoking and the infections can be caused do to the fact of you’re lungs trying to heal and push out the many years of smoke that damaged you’re lungs. Don’t forget you smoked a chemical daily for years and the lungs take time to heal. To me vaping is not 100% healthy but what is it’s alot healthier to be around than a house full of smokers and that I know. I also have a child and we do not vape around him do to the fact he is young and in all honesty I’m quit smoking not him so why let him breathe something he doesn’t have to. But if anyone has any questions feel free to email me and I will help.

    I smoked for 30 year 2 packs a day began have some issues so I needed to turn to something better. I drive 1,000 a week by myself (not a truck drive) and need something to keep me alert and my hands active. Vaping fit the bill that was 5 years ago. Today I feel much better when I started I also had some of the possible side effects people are speaking about. With some trial and error I figured it all out. I use a refillable mod. Started out at 21 mg. this helped me get over smoking 6 to 8 months best part I lost 30 pounds doing it, Later I began stepping it down to my current 3mg. I still would get some side effects but very light so I began the juice search. Tried several but found a local mix at a vape shop I liked ( tobacco light 3mg ) no smell at all and no sweet over powering flavor. Then I began changing the settings on my base and coil. I now run a .5 ohm coil at only 18watts. I discovered the coils would last for months at this setting so long in fact I was fearful of bacteria growing in the chamber I began cleaning it every few weeks soaking the chamber its parts, and wick in good quality vodka for an hour. Shaking the glass from time to time then allowing it to dry reassemble and refill then off vaping again. I would consider myself a heavy vaper due to driving hours and all issues are now gone. Take from this what you will but for me it’s about the right setup with the right settings and proper cleaning. Just like most things you have to find what works for you. I buy a 5 pack of coils which will last me about a year. The juice runs about $11.00 a week. A lot cheaper that smoking and better for me. Even my Doctor side if you going to do one or the other Vaping was the far better plan. But of course he encouraged me to give it all up.
    I’m 54 and feel better and in better shape than I have been in years.

    I am 55 years old and had smoked cigs for 38 years. WTF. I had been vaping for a year and a half, still smoking butts too. On June 6th, 2018 at 6 pm I smoked my last cig and have been vaping ever since. Within a week, I could walk across the parking lot and not be winded. I no longer wake up in the morning feeling like total crap. I have not had any side effects from vaping. I use the Suorin vape and love it. I am using 9mg of Criss-Cross liquid and will eventually lower that as well. Perhaps in 10-15 years, the jury will be out about the risks of vaping, although, nothing is as bad as smoking butts for 38 years. My family still can not believe that overnight I became a no-smoker. Heck, I still cant believe it.

    I’ve been smoking 10+ years. Brought a vape 2 months ago. I was advised to buy a 11mg juice as it would be about the same as I was smoking. The high mg would make me cough and feel sick. Been smoking 3mg of hunting clouds juice or illusions juice and have had no problems. I no longer sound like I’ve forgotten to release the choke in the morning and my fitness is better. I can go further with out shortness of breath. These people saying they are getting sick or light headed I would recommend checking the mg level in your juice or if you have the right mods on your vap. Can you battery cope woth your coil that sort of thing.

    I’m not sure about all these side effects they talk about I’m 28 and I smoked ciggarettes since I was 12 and I noticed when I was 24 that my chest hurt really bad every morning the first few deep breaths after waking up and I switched to vaping after a friend gave me his old mod and I swear after 2 weeks the chest pains were gone and my vocal range increased dramatically (I sing and perform) and I love hiking and all that crap you spit out in the morning when you smoke cigs that was completely gone out of my lungs after one month and I have never had side effects from the vape can go a day without and not worry about it. Most of these studies out that are anti vape are paid for by big tobacco because they’re made their losing money to us switching. All the negative stuff is bull or an idiot not using their vape the correct way. There are usually between 5 and 6 total ingredients in good vape juice. I’m all the way down to 3mg juice and I use to smoke 2 packs a day.

    I used to smoke cigarettes like a chimney… I’d get severe headaches from smoking so many… then a few years ago I switched to vaping… at first all seemed well, now it’s taking its toll… every morning I’m getting post nasal drip, coughing, severe dry skin accompanied by severe itching to the point I thought I had bed bugs… but thank God I dont… I’m so done with with this crap! They said vaping helps smokers quit… if not cautious it’s an addiction replacement… went up to 12 mg then back to 6mg and what noone tells you is you can get addicted to the throat hit… I know doesn’t make sense but use it long enough and you’ll figure out that in some ways the addiction can be worse…
