Careful with e-cigarette
jimi2012 posted:
I guess a e-cigarette is for people who really like to smoke but don't want all the cigarette chemicals, except the nicotine , in my case. But my warning is: you might be allergic to the propylene glycol In The "vape juice" . I found out because after I got the E-cigarette, three weeks after smoking it, I had abdominal pain so bad I went to the emergency room because it wouldn't go away. That same day I got this red blotchy hive rash on my neck. I didn't know there was propylene glycol, I thought they just put glycerin and nicotine in it. If you do end up with a reaction and still want to smoke, get the vegetable glycerine kind. I had to look up e-cigarette allergy on YouTube. That's how I found out. But with the 100% vegetable glycerine I'm perfectly fine now. In a perfect world I would never have become addicted to nicotine or the ritual of smoking. But I am. And for me the E-cigarette is fine. I can work out and run and hike without coughing.
