    I sub ohm 18 mg nicotine per 1 ml juice. I use coil/s that are 0.30 to 0.50 ohms in RDAs. I swap from chain vaping to vape a few hits, set it aside for a few hours or so, vape it later on again. I'm a moderate person, even to the point that I try to moderate having moderation. *chuckles* I have excesses at times but other times I don't. Been using 18 mg nicotine for near 3 yrs now and don't see any need to lower. I'm a nicotine addict. At least I'm not using commercial or private tobacco any more. I've eliminated around 95 to 98% of risk involved in addiction to nicotine, depending on who is asked, the variables considered. I'm sure that makes worlds of difference on my overall health. In fact, yesterday's colon check up came back clean and the doc said I was now on the 5 yr plan. No nasty gut cancer for me., yay! :) At least not yet.

    for me, the higher the wattage, the more nic you get.
    i usually vape 12 mg around 20 watts. using .6 coils..
    but i got some tanks with .2 coils.
    to get any taste out of them i had to go to 50 watts.
    taste was better but i got nic sick nauseous after a few puffs.
    looks like i need milder juice for that temp. .

    i'm running 30.419 watts to (~=)about 50 watts, using mechs, so 30 to 50 watts. think i recall somewhere in ECF's library of vaping info where it had been deduced roughly, we absorb about 50% of what is vaped nicotine wise. so i figure each ml of juice i consume at 18 mg nicotine per ml of juice nets me ~= 0.90 mg of nicotine in my system. i like to vape ~= 4 ml of juice per day so .9 x 4 = 3.6 mg of nicotine i get extra in my body daily. of course this is highly speculative as well as there are so many different vectors and so many that are subject to change, makes any actual empirical iron clad numbers difficult to calculate at best. but i use mech mods so tend to not be greatly concerned over my watts, found it interesting to actually get a figure today, *grin*

    The one thing that drives me nuts is going into a vape store asking for something in 12 or 18 mg most house brands will have it. A few big brands will have 12. Anyway going in asking for a 12 or 18 and the kid behind the counter looks at me like I'm crazy. Says why 6 is plenty or nic. First off I didn't ask about that this is what I would like please go get it. Nobody Vapes and quits stinky sticks the same way. I started at 24 in a baby beast tank. That was my go to on 40w or so. There is absolutely no META for going back to cigs. I vape 6mg now but I dropped slowing and stayed comfortable. Vape what you want me try out different mg see what you like

    Agreed. Some of also vape & eventually quit vaping. Some of us self inclusive figure we'll keep on vaping. Are we trading one habit for another? Yes, we are but considering the overall reduction of harm found in vaping, it's fine. Although I have to say fairly enough nicotine is a blood vessel constrictor. Folks might want to consider that. I know I do with having faced a mild stroke some years ago, and high blood pressure. I was told by a competent nurse that it takes about 4 hrs to metabolize in a body each hit of nicotine you take. Not quite sure that's 100% accurate, I often hit ~=6/8 times but still need nicotine in ~= 2/3 hrs again. Of course, that also might be the addiction aspect of it, too.

    Something tells me to brush up on my trigonometry. Might come in handy calculating for Nth type numbers with random variables involved. Get advanced tickets now to my exploding brain, $.50 a show bring your own umbrella and rubbers. Not responsible for dry cleaning after the show/s.

    Thanks for this response. I'm going to look into this as I also have suffered from mini strokes. I love getting new information nor knowledge to look into.

    You're welcome. Standard disclaimers apply to my ramblings, especially any with medical / legal advice. IANA[D/L] & hope that is clearly conveyed. :) Strokes frighten me more than anything I think. Have seen the look in the eyes of two Paw Paws. The one I had was one that I didn't know I had. Some might suggest a person knows when they have one. Sorry, not been my experience.

    I know I hit the floor, know I found myself setting on a chair in the break room of a Burger King, Pepsi with sugar, salt, ice in a cup. Felt the cup on my lips and heard someone telling me to drink. Started coming around then and realized I had been moved from standing behind the char grill. Got sent home early that day. Shrugged off going to get checked out just figured the beef and heat had got me sick as it had been a busy day, wreck on I-81 that we sat directly off.

    So, didn't know it had been a mild stroke until seeing a doctor for a chemical burn, nurse checking my BP, made me sit still and got me on bp medicine right then. The doctor looked at my vittles and leaned in to whisper that if I didn't want another stroke, I'd pay attention to what was going on. He told me later he heard of my mild stroke. Some of us are old fools what keep on keeping on and quote my mom, "I don't got time for this s#!+."

    Well, I better go try catching Jack Webb & Raymond Burr. Sounds like there's some squabble relating to coffee & I know Joe Friday will plug a lawyer if he needs to do it. I can't have that, I am so crushed on both of them. *sighs* Y'all run 'er slow, think I'm, ...

    When I switched from 2.2ohm single kanger ssocc coils with ego pen hitting it every 40 seconds every waking moment of the day to smok t8 baby t8 0.15 ohm coils I thought yeah I better lower the nic from 24mg. So I tried 6mg. Killed 2 lg hg2s 3000mah in a vaporesso revenger x in 3 hours at 75 watts. Hit it every 40 seconds or so 6 to 7 second puffs. Went to 12mg. Still killed it in about 4 hours. Using 18mg now at 60 watts and it works good. Can make the batteries last a day at least. Can take 3 or 4 puffs then set it down for 15 min. My tolerance to caffeine is slso severly high. I can drink 4 bang 300mg caffeine (1200mg total) energy drinks and go to sleep 30 min later. So 18mg in sub ohm if it's not making you sick. Go for it. But ALWAYS start low and go up if needed if your a new vaper till your nic craving is satisfied. That's my recommendation.

    Hi
    Wish I found the forum earlier...
    This topic is because of my gag harsh vape...so I searched as to why and found it. Lots of good info

    I was vaping 3.6 nicotine in a 70/30 solution in a X Smok set at 40 watts with a .4 coil (was looking for my nicotine craving, use to smoke lucky's) I was gaining way too much weight .

    Switched to 18 mg nicotine and it was much better .

    Will reduce it maybe as time goes on...we will see.

    Antway thanks for the info and forum.
