    Default Nicotine Absorption Without Inhaling

    Hi all,

    I find myself not wanting to inhale as much while vaping. The flavors are much more enjoyable for me if I just vape into my mouth and blow the vapor out my mouth and nose. It's like a taste and smell overload.

    Am I absorbing less nicotine this way?

    From what I have read and understood, yes you are. But you will know if you are.
    If not inhaling provides what your body needs, then it works. I used to smoke a pipe, didn't inhale too often, but I still got my nic.

    Actually, more
    Mouth is where it's absorbed most at.

    HAH! Big Tobacco, put THAT in your pipe and smoke it!!!

    How do you get the vapor to go out your nose without inhaling?

    Anyway...
    No, from what I've read, most of the obsorption happens in your mouth anyway.

    I did this when I smoked also. It was great with flavorful tobaccos like a cigar or pipe.

    I'm not sure how to explain it but I'll try.

    I suck the vapor into my mouth then use my mouth and tongue (mostly tongue) to collapse the space in my mouth, pushing the vapor upward out my nose.

    You don't have to exhale while doing it, you can just push most of the vapor out and exhale to finish it off. I kinda push and exhale simultaneously.

    I just took like 15 hits trying to come up with that description.

    Hmm, learn something new every quarter century. LOL

    23 years of smoking, never knew you could do that

    So I guess it didn't matter when Bill Clinton claimed that he "didn't inhale."

    Yes, most nicotine absorbed by vaping is absorbed in your mucosa, the linings of the mouth, nose, and throat. Very little is absorbed in the lungs. So you're getting as much vapor without inhaling, holding it in your mouth you are getting the max.
    Bill Clinton was actually doing what most users do, hold it in the mouth nose and throat as long as you can stand it! He thought he was being clever saying that.....!!
    Think of vaping being comparable to using a patch, you absorb about the same amount of nic into your bloodstream, don't compare to smoking a cigarette. NOTHING is the same as those!! Nicotine doesn't kill, smoke does.
