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.

Well its good to know that you are doing pretty well even without smoking nicotine, I would like you to know that e-cigarette is not at all typically good for health. Though you may not be facing any problem during current stage, but with time you can develop further problem if you don't quit smoking once for all.
