    Default My first nicotine overdose.

    So vaping (24mg high) all day yesterday and drinking a fair amount so I'm not paying too much attention to how much I'm taking in. This morning: Massive headache, shortness of breath, laboured breathing and a heart rate of 110-115 bpm. Vaped away all day in the emerg (on LOW strength)while waiting for test results (security checked me out than laughed about, they'd heard of e-cigs) (chest x-ray, blood work, ecg, etc). Final verdict: in fine heath, nicotine poisoning, take some valium, and slow down on the vaping!

    On a side note if you've vaping away on a nice flavour and you take a shot of vodka it give the vodka the flavour - though drinking a lot straight vodka and vaping is gonna give you a super nasty raw throat.

    Wow bro ... I've gotten headaches which told my body to "put the vape down" before it got too serious (and I vape 36mg liquids), but never have I woken up more messed up than I have falling asleep..

    Your story scares me.

    Are you vaping PG?

    It sounds more like a combo of the drinking and vaping, imo.

    Yup, perhaps a little alcohol poisoning in there as well, got pretty ripped and was certainly chain-vaping like mad. But I have NEVER had a hangover like that and I'm *ahem* a very experienced drinker.

    Dude that sucks. I wouldn't be surprised about the nic poisoning, though. Surprised I haven't had it yet, since I've been chaining like mad, but only on 18s. My vote, if you're going to chain, drop your strength.

    I was vaping irresponsibly, I don't think anyone should scared... just use some common sense.

    I mix it up mostly PG yesterday but I been mixing it up, cutting my high juice 50-50 with VG and a couple drops of flavour and a couple drops of vodka.

    Regular 510 and a 510 mega, 3.7 volts I assume? And I was switching back and forth to keep the vape coming - I don't think I'd recommend doing that, rest between your vapes. Awesome e-cigs. But I got a Silver Bullet in the mail today and I am waiting for the lights to turn green... maybe another trip to the emerg tomorrow!
