    Well, that was March 10...maybe I pulled my 7mg patch too soon (I had planned to do 7mg for at least a month) but I went back to the smokes. Now I am smoking in the morning and vaping nicotine juice in the evening. I'm trying to find the great Vape that makes smoking obsolete. But really, I think my patches plus zero or very low nicotine will be the strategy I return to eventually.

    I started out with 24mg nic in a kanger protank, and now I am down to 3mg in a dripper, however I chain vape so much because i drive a truck for a living that yesterday morning I woke up with a really intense migraine. I think it's time to cut down to 1.5mg nic :) at least I DIY so if I want to make 0.97283mg nic, i can do it.

    Drinking plenty of water is necessary, as the VG and/or PG dehydrates the Vaper.

    If you guys do feel like you might've gotten too much nic, put a teaspoon of sugar on your tongue and suck on it, or drink a can of soda pop. The sugar will help push it through your system faster. ;)
    ...then cut down on your nic - you probably don't wanna make a habit of it.

    I smoke for 20 years already and recently I've had a bad case of diarrhea. On this website I have found a solution http://stop-diarrhea.net

    Thank you, this list is very helpful, I don't use nicotine but I've got friends who do and I'll be sure to inform them of this.

    Started vaping almost 3 moths ago and started with 18mg (vender told me it was about the same as my coveted Camels). It worked GREAT, except the the vape "pen" never finished like an analog cig. I was getting dizzy and tummy aches from over nic-ing. Then I discovered TOP SHELF juice!!! Suicide Bunny's Mothers Milk!! Even though it was over half the nic, I could not put it down. now I am at a happy place with 3mg nic and 6 for tobacco blends. I lover my new hobby/lifestyle!!

    I remember back when I was just upgrading from my EVOD Twist to my mech and how I tried dripping 24mg PG dominate juice that had me doubling over in a coughing fit! I could see how easily I could have suffered all of those on your list if I tried dealing with it and kept on. Sometimes when I am over doing it I notice that I get cranky and my belly is not happy for a few minutes and the effects subside rather quickly.

    Thanks for the information!

    After 13 hours you would think that the side effect would have been long worn off from chain vaping.
    I am going to go out on a limb and say you're suffering from something else.

    What was the nicotine level of that juice? What type of device/tank were you using?

    I vape 0-nic, and haven't smoked since 2008. So last night I grab my juice and proceed to load the mutation. I get her all juiced up. Fresh battery in the mech. hold the fire button in for a second to get the vapor rolling and proceed to lung hit that sucker hard! The juice was my wife's 6mg nic......... I coughed and gagged as if Ron Jeremy was playing tonsil hockey with me. For about 30 minutes after that, I was ill as a Hornet. I mean I could have killed a puppy with a kitten. So the irritability thing is 100% accurate, for me, at least. Strange. My throat still hurts.

    OK, now try drinking a soda (haha not "diet"). If it's nic that's making you sick, the sugar will help push it through your system faster.

    Hey all, update on this old post...
    I'm just vaping like a regular guy now. 3mg in my sub-ohm RDAs and RTAs, and 9mg in my 1.5-2.0 ohm coil clearomizers...
    BUT...it really DOES work to wear a patch and vape zero nicotine, and I might return to that strategy later on...

    I dual-used with 24mg in cartomizers, then clearomizers, then a pro tank.
    My girlfriend had already moved on to a mod & subtank, and convinced me to order the same.
    When it arrived, I loaded up with 24mg juice. She suggested this might not be a good idea.
    But that's what I had, so no big deal, I thought.
    First hits, a little rough, but OK. Kept puffing.
    "I feel funny," I said.
    Then the giggling started.
    "Are you OK?"
    "I feel...fuzzy." More giggling.
    "Maybe you should stop."
    "OK." Kept puffing.

    I can tell you that the 45 minutes or so of fuzzy giggling was not worth the 6+ hours of stomach pain.

    Was not a tobbaco smoker prior to vaping(nicotine helps me focus) and started w/ Greensmoke ecgigs then 3mg, up to 6mg then 12, and briefly 24, back down to 6mg. 6mg is a bit much for how much I like to vape, esp on my sub-ohm setups. I do enjoy the hookah headrush though. Just ordered stuff to start making my own juice so I can keep the nic. low and make however strong of a flavor i want. I've also found I have a sensitivity to PG after awhile.

    When I first started vaping I would vape too much at a time. Popped out in a cold sweat and got nausea. I've since learned the rhythm of vaping and what I can handle. I had to slow down. Can totally relate.

    Hmmmmmm, that is a new one....LOL, taking up using Nic-juice to focus, did you give any thought to nicotine being addicting when you started using it?
    Just curious.......

    Yup. I've also gotten my caffeine tolerance up to well over a gram a day a couple times, and now usually 200-400mg after a break of little to no caffeine. So, stim addiction I don't have a problem with since I know I can ween myself off. Also have found, as many others, the bigger addiction is the hand-mouth effect. Need to make/get some 0 or ultra low nic to vape while I'm at the computer.

    Not as easy as you think, after all, we are all mostly here because we were addicted to cigarettes and choose to vape as a healthier way to get our nicotine.:) Good luck

    I havent seen a lot of comments on chills...when I started vaping, on more than one occasion I got chills in the middle o the night. Sugar under the tongue resolved.

    TBH, I'm okay with the addiction. I get the effects I want out of it, and the side effects as far as we know are minimal in moderation. It's also been proven that nicotine straight isn't nearly as addictive as the analog as a whole. British health authorities are starting to liken vaping to caffeinated products, and are saying they should be pushed as an alternative for smokers since it is "a fraction of the risk" and is being proven that it is not a gateway to start analogs, even for youth. I have wondered the concerns about regularly raising one's heart rate and blood pressure, but that risk remains with other stimulants as well. I sometimes take asprin if I get a stim headache; as a vasciodialator and blood thinner, it has a noticible effect.

    Nice article, I found it doesn't mention Nicotine much at all though, as in your comment >Nicotine straight isn't nearly as addictive as the analog
    That was what I was referring to.

    Just started vaping a week ago and the only thing that has happened to me is I'll get the feeling like I took too much Vicodin at once and it will get that "high" feeling for a minute. I'll continue to vape and it will go away after a little bit. Not quite sure if that is a overdose or not.

    I get the tingles sometimes when I take over 4 deep kung hits back to back dripping juice with 5 mgs of nic at 75w or so.. They make my arm tingle only for a split second then I get a warm, good feeling all over, knowing my acquired nicotene addiction has been satisfied... A hour or so later I vape some more, as I love that nicotene buzz... But never have I felt sick, dizzy or like I'm gonna puke...and I've been vaping over 3 yrs..

    The biggest symptom of a nic overdose is when you find yourself trying to have an intelligent conversation on ecf

    Excellent topic
    I think much depends on what type of device you are using; when first starting out on a convienient store vape unit 24mg/ml was just fine for me but when I switched to a little better (much better!) vaping device then 12mg/ml was enough to give me bad feelings; hot, little head pounding, little nausea, nothing terribly serious, but like if I had tried to quit smoking for a couple of days then that first smoke. OR ANYTIME trying a bit of smokeless tobacco!
    FWIW- I think vaping would be a good alternative for those who chew tobacco too..JMO

    When I first started I purchased 6mg juice, seeing that is what my boyfriend used to quit smoking. After a week or so I still had the edge of "quitting smoking" and I thought it wasn't strong enough so I bumped up to 12mg. Worst idea. Cold sweats at night, terrible headaches and extreme restless leg syndrome, took me a few days to put two and two together and realized I was taking in way too much nicotine for my body. I switched back to the 6mg and everything has been fine. I realized later that 6mg was working, I was just impatient and thought I wouldn't have any withdrawal from cigarettes. Glad to say I haven't smoked since I switched, just have to learn to be patient or you can really do harm to yourself :(

    I'm on day 21 of no chew. I was about a can a day user. I was a smoker before I was a dipper and still smoked on occasion.

    I find the nicotine experience is much different with vaporizing. I don't really get a head buzz, like with smoking a cig after not smoking for a while. And I sure don't get the wave of calmness like a lip of chew. But, if I chain vape a tank of 12mg I do get nausea and a headache, so there's that. Vaping is giving me something to fixate on and so far it's working, but as far as nicotine delivery, I'm still sorta jonesing for my fix.


    I now have 6mg in a subohm tank and 12mg in smaller lower powered mini-tank and and drain the batterys on both mods at least once everyday. I imagine I'll use less eventually, but for now it keeps me busy not chewing.

    I've read some articles on people switching from smoking to vaping, and they say you're always going to crave a cigarette as an ex smoker, as it's part of the "addiction" but the act of vaping masks a lot of the craving since it's so similar to smoking. I'm curious how much of that plays a psychological role in switching over to vaping. Glad you've switched over!

    You might want to look into snuff.
    I found quitting snus way tougher than stopping dipping, was about the quality of the nic and experience of that sudden onset.
    Still use a bump of snuff from time to time to round the edges off the cravings.

    Well, I get really hot, easily confused and usually sleepy. Could be worst I guess. I occasionally get nauseated too.
