    If you were/are a smoker your health will improve barring unusual allergies. There doesn't seem to be much long term studies yet.

    I second what Leticia said.

    If you are a smoker, you should feel much better.
    If you are a "hobbyist", there are no long term studies.

    haven't been vaping long, but i have my sense of smell back.
    never got my winter cold either.
    that might be related to vaping instead of smoking.

    Smoked for 40 years.
    Switched to vaping 4 years ago.
    health is much better.
    BP went from 145/110 to 120/80 with no meds. Just had a physical a couple of days ago.
    Cholesterol went down over 20 points and now requires no meds.
    Used to have a couple or three colds per year. I have had 2 in the past 4 years and both were fairly minor.
    Much better wind and feel lots better.
    btw I am 64 yrs old. And eat mostly junk food and such and my only exercise is working outside and such.
    Retired almost 2 years now.

    Is vaping totally harmless?
    I do not think so but MUCH less harmful than smoking.

    Questions:

    1) Why did you buy from Canada if you are in the US?
    2) "Vapes" is a little too vague.
    There is a huge difference in types of devices.

    What do you have?
    What kind of eliquid?
    Flavor, nic level, etc...

    No offense it's just a knee jerk response when you see someone drop a link in their first post, and we get our share of spammers here.:D

    There is still not much research on the effect of vaping on health but I still believe it is much better than traditional smoking. The quality of the juice is also important though. If you just get a cheap ass juice from an unknown brand then who knows what toxic substance they put into it :eek:

    I know what is in my juice. Have been 100% DIY for over 3 1/2 years.
    I put lots of diketones, AP and such in it.
    When I switched to vaping I was taking medicine for BP, Cholesterol and such.
    Off of both for over a year and my BP is now 120/80 and cholesterol is below warning levels.
    And I eat mostly junk food and such so not diet related.
    DR had trouble believing I had ever smoked at my Physical a week or so ago.
    Smoked for 40 years. 1.5 PAD.

    As I said before not vaping is better than vaping for you but vaping is light years safer than smoking.

    Not sure if you mean me but many of us that started vaping to quit smoking have fell down the hobby rabbit hole. Vaping also becoming a hobby of sorts isn't limited to any particular style of vaping. MTL vaper's that use drop in coils also become vaping hobbyists.

    It is definitely a hobby 4me as well as a nicotine addiction. Seeing as i build n mix even when i have plenty of coils n juice on hand. Yes it is a hobby.

    To me, it is no more a hobby than making my own stink sticks when I smoked. I got good at it, but it was never a hobby. Vaping is a tool I use to cope with the bullshit in life.

    Does vaping affect health, yes! Below is part of a post I did last year and I'm sticking to my personal opinion about what I said regarding vaping.

    My vaping facts!


    Quit cigs after decades of smoking. The last 20 years were non filtered and RYO's. It took me two whole days to completely quit once I started vaping. I only saved about 3K bucks in the first year, this year I've spent 369 bucks on vape products. Cigs are 6.50 a pack in Ohio that combined with my extra health insurance premium of 1,800 / year would have cost me 4,200 bucks a year as a smoker. I could buy a new car on what I'm saving!

    Why I'm posting in the heath area.

    As a smoker I constantly had bogies, blew my nose throughout the day...that stopped completely in the first month. As a smoker I would occasionally get extremely sharp localized pains in my lungs, a bit like being poked with the end of a pencil...that stopped completely in a few months and has not returned. As a smoker I occasionally had asthma attacks, they have stopped. SOB (shortness of breath) it got really severe the last few years of cigs, improved by maybe 25% (2019 update on SOB, it has now reduced even more than last year) the first year of vaping, and this year another 25%. Nearly forgot, I usually burned my cig fingers at least 2 or 3 times a week...sometimes very badly when the cig stuck to my lips as I tried to pull it away from my mouth. Haven't burned myself 1 single time in 2 years!

    What did my Doctor say at my last check up in June? Mouth, throat, etc... looked great, BP 112/70, O2 absorption rate 98%, blood work...all good except PSA numbers. (update on Dr visit: stats are still good and my PSA has dropped by 4 points probably from using Pygeum)

    Gee what else? I no longer smell like an ashtray, the air in my house/garage/car has no cig odor, my clothing no longer smells of burnt tobacco. (update on the cig stink: repainted my interior walls and ceiling...cig odor now completely GONE!)

    All of the above are MY FACTS on (update:now over 3 years) 2 years of vaping!

    Does vaping affect health? It did mine!!!!

    For ex-smokers, vaping is not harmful but helpful, that's why we start to vape

    don't read it. read the truth.


    if its on the news, its fake. people have been vaping for years
    . but only in the last 2 months has it become an issue, hmmm. see, there are people that profit from lies and misinformation.
    and they don't care who they hurt doing it.

    Exactly, if vaping nicotine was so dangerous this forum would be full of dead people. Instead our numbers are increasing and our health improving. You don’t have to dig too deep to realize all this negative propaganda put out by “Truth” and others of their ilk, is complete and total bullshit. These sham organizations and the news that reports their “findings” are a complete laughingstock, and lack any credibility whatsoever.

    I’m catching up with old posts, but I wanted to say thanks. Pointing out that VU would be full of people getting sick from nic vaping was a great point, and made me smile.
    It’s not that I’m affected by the propaganda everywhere against vaping. It’s that sometimes the amount of lying going on and the utter ignorance of people out there who don’t vape is depressing.

    You cut through the bullshit really well.

    NB: Stop by the MG when you get a chance.
