Vaping not for everyone especially me
earlier this year I decided to attempt once again to stop smoking and decided to try this vaping thing , and I can honestly say between the effects of stopping cigs cold turkey , combined with the various effects and reactions to vaping I have never visited the doc office this much in the past 6 years .then I have in the past 6 mo while vaping , I suffered from several symptoms such as nose bleeds , upset stomach everyday , shortness of breath , feeling heavy in the lungs all of it . even had to get meds from my ent to help me out getting over it . I decided a few weeks ago to try 1 last experiment because I was having so much trouble/ reactions with the juices etc , I tried several juices from different suppliers different levels different types etc and suffered
several different reaction , but then I also noticed , when I picked up a pack of cigs , suddenly all the symptoms would disappear . I have come to the conclusion that vaping is no different then anything else on the stop smoking market its not a cure all and it does come with its own set of associated risks . it may be fine for some people same as anything else but clearly its just not for me . sad though I really tried hard but my system just couldn't adjust to it .and with all the aggravation I went through over the last 6 mos. just wasn't worth it any longer , I have returned to smoking and threw all the vaping stuff I acquired over the past few months in the trash
I finally came to the conclusion that vaping is for others and not me , my system just couldn't adjust to it .
best of luck to everyone that vaping does work for , and thanks to everyone on the forum for their support .
I have tried several different stop smoking gimmicks over the years and vaping sadly gets added to the failure list .
Sorry to hear its not working out for you.
I have a coworker that tried vaping.. it gave him headaches.
I agree.. it may not be for everyone.
Sad to see it isn't working out for you, still hope you can manage to kick the cig habit someday. We're rooting for ya.
Might want to get checked out for a PG(or VG) intolerance - I know that causes a lot of people issues on here, and i'm not a doctor, but may be what made it so rough..
Fortunately for the millions who have quit analogs by vaping, yours is the rare exception.
yeah I was checked for all that by the ENT , like I said I haven't been to the doc this much in years except for the basic physical , then I have in the last 6mo . vaping ............. whats the point ?
my system just wouldn't adjust to the juices and they made me sick with this symptom or that symptom , no matter what mix , ratio , level , whatever , it just got to the point that the hassle just wasn't worth it any longer and im right back to square 1 smoking again
yeah its not good for me , I just got tired of the Blaaahhh feeling everyday, but the headaches , upset stomach everyday , nose bleeds , chest pains and everything else is gone
after just 2 weeks of all the vaping stuff going in the trash . and smoking again .
if its working for you great , its not for me , I have talked with a lot of people about this and my buddy at the vape store by my house and he has told me that , yep its true vaping isn't for everyone and some people just cant adjust , and he has seen so many people try and fail
and give it up for that exact reason , the symptoms and they just couldn't adjust . and many like me fail because they get tired of dealing with it like I did .
honestly I would have to disagree with that , as far as me alone being a rare exception , my buddy who works in the vape buissness says he sees people have issues and give it up everyday , when I asked my doc and ent about it , they said they have also seen several issues concerning vaping in the medical field .
Sorry to hear it didn't work out. Unfortunately vaping isn't for everyone as you have found out. We all have are own particular sorted pasts of health history, body chemistry and years smoking which has a direct impact on whether or not we can tolerate these new chemicals. In your case it didn't work. Hopefully you can find another method in which to resolve your smoking dependence. Best of luck!

in no way do I alone feel like a rare evception honestly , I understand who CASSA is and I know what they are about I have researched that organization a lot in the past 6-8 mo.

But im here to tell you , vaping isn't for everyone , no product is , and that's coming straight from my Doctor and ENT it may help a lot of folks but there are those that it honestly failed .
I recall talking with a CASSA member supporter earlier this year and I was told how great vaping was and all and how it was the best thing on the market I mean the guy sounded like a Baptist preacher .......... but im here to tell ya vaping is Not a cure all in anyway . and it does indeed have its associated risks
I have read many topics on this forum and other about folks that suffer from this symptom or that symptom etc etc
in no way am I saying smoking is the way to go or better or anything like that ........... im just saying I found vaping was a useless failure
and wasn't worth the nasty feelings everyday . am I running down vaping or the CASSA no im not just saying for me
vaping did nothing but made me feel blaaahh everyday , and just wasn't for me . lets be honest... im def a skeptic of vaping at this point now
and I have a very bitter taste in my mouth for the product as a hole , because its not perfect in anyway , and its not for everyone but then again its no different then Chantix or anything else on the market
Vaping for me has been a breakthrough as far as a replacement nicotine delivery device.
I know that I had pneumonia and bronchitis every winter but since I've switched over from cigs to vaping I have not had any chest conditions. . My doctor gave me the thumbs up!!
Of course nothing is for everyone and I'm sorry it didn't help you. ..
Vaping is not a "quit smoking" cure all. It's a replacement device that has helped so many many people transition from receiving their nicotine from cancer sticks to p.v's.
I'm not a Dr but I feel vaping cannot be classified in the same category of chantix. .. I'm sure vaping side effects are not suicide?!? Anyway,,,
I know I feel better. . My doctor has attested to the fact that my lungs are clear from weeze.
I do hope you find something that works for you.
Because Let's face it
Best of luck on your journey!! ...
Well my great-great grandma was from the old country, and she had a saying. "A dog can bark all night, but it's legs will not grow longer."
I think we should all keep that in mind
