The following is from a forum post I made recently. I've been involved for some time with the "Whole Tobacco Alkaloid" concept, and when reading back through my blog, I find I've spoken with a certainty that's probably misplaced... or at least overly-confident. We think we know a lot of things, we convince ourselves of this, but what do we really know about vaping when it doesn't yet have a long-term history?
In context, the comments below represent my current thinking,
Some time ago, I created a model where I theorized two things:
1. Some folks have a high predisposition to nicotine addition and others a low predisposition.
2. Some folks have a high predisposition to tobacco MAOI addiction and others a low predisposition.
Another way to put this is to suggest that some folks who smoke do it because the nicotine calms them, and others smoke because the non-nicotine MAOI's calms them.
I then crossed these
I was making up a personal WTA batch this weekend, and I got thinking about about my blog entries over the past year and a half or so, and I got inclined to give them a re-read.
I don't know if I fully agree with everything I've had to say (well, actually, I don't), but overall, I'm not too embarrassed by anything I've posted. I think my tendency toward looking for precision made it's way into a good number of my entries, though I'm not so caught up these days with the idea of trying
I've generally noted that vaping doesn't seem to harm my capacity for exercise, but today I noted something that's worth attention.
I was biking up a closed road, starting at an elevation of 1000 feet, the hill rose steadily to 1800 feet by mile 2.7, about a 5.5 percent grade. Having vaped heavily in my car along the way to this closed road, I found that my lungs were not up to the deep breathing necessary for the chore. They were very shallow and tight. I then spent 2 miles on relatively
Here's a topic I've addressed a number of times in various threads, but I thought I might discuss it here.
What can one expect from soaking tobacco in various solvents (alcohol, PG, VG) to get some real tobacco flavor and/or nicotine?
