    Unhappy Sinless Smoke- ...?

    My mother and I are both hoping to get off of cigarettes altogether (I'm on day 6 of no cigarettes) and decided to try e-cigs. We got Sinless Smoke e-cigs from a head shop yesterday, and the Sinless Smoke e-liquid came with it. We both chose the Vanilla (18mg). We charged our cigs and put the liquid in; according to my mom, we just put two drops in the cartridge (according to the directions from the guy at the shop; unfortunately, there were no instructions that came with either the cig or the drops), then gave them a try. The stuff was SO harsh, both of our throats hurt and we got headaches. Now I feel like I'm coming down with freakin' bronchitis, which may or may not be from the e-liquid, since I was feeling kinda like I was starting to fight a cold, anyway. All I know is that the stuff was AWFUL and we aren't fans We decided to order the 8mg Ry4 from elixirliquid.com, as this got pretty decent reviews on YouTube (whereas the Sinless Smoke got bad reviews, and the guy said that he didn't want anyone getting turned off of vaping just because this stuff is crap, so we decided to give vaping another chance with a different liquid). Since we're beginners and have had a hard time finding info on this particular e-cigarette and pretty much don't know what we're doing, any feedback is appreciated. Has anyone else tried Sinless Smoke products? Experienced bronchial irritation? Anything? We were really excited about this, but now are feeling a little discouraged.

    The bronchial irritation could be from a few things.

    When I first started vaping I had a lot of problems with it and detirmined I was allergic to PG, however it seems far more likely that the juice you got wasn't very good (I don't know sinless smoke and won't remark their quality) OR that your body is reacting from detoxing from the cigs. Go to the new members forum and check out some of the symptoms. If I were you, I'd try the new juice you ordered and give it some time. If you are still having problems, try switching to VG juices.

    Hope this helps, don't give up!

    Headaches sounds like the nic level was higher than YOUR personal preference (headache is usually a sure sign youve taken in too much nic) and harshness could be as mentioned above, or the fact it was cheap liquid, or the fact your body isnt used to vapor without chemcials to make it feel smooth (which is what they put in cigs so you don't cough a lung every time you smoke).
    PG and VG have a drying effect on your mucus membranes - you MUST drink more when you vape or you will get dried out. My first week my throat was so sore it was almost swollen shut. Im not allergic to PG btw, I just wasn't drinking enough water. These days I dont have that issue.
    I doubt its soley to do with the PV you bought - its more likely a combo of things.

    Welcome to the forum. Don't get discouraged. These just aren't as simple as light it, smoke it, die, like analogs. There is a learning curve but you are in the right place.

    Here is a good place to start. The ECF Library - E-Cigarette Forum
    It will help you identify the model of your ecig. Then there are model specific sections in the forum.

    Thank you guys so much for your replies. I really appreciate it. I'll check out the thread you suggested, and I'm not giving up just yet. I'm stubborn lol. I tend to drink a ton of water anyway, but now that I'm aware, I'll make sure I don't slack off.

    We should be getting our new juices by Wednesday. In the meantime, I'm not going to smoke anything, just chew my Nicorette...just in case it's a cold or something, to allow healing time. I'm excited to try again!

    Another question: Can anyone tell me where I can get flavored juices with low nic? All the good ones I've found are 18mg or higher...I'd like to find ones that go all the way down to 0, since I'd like to stop the nicotine altogether eventually. And if anyone reads this and has used Sinless Smoke, your feedback is appreciated

    Thanks again

    Once you get done there head over to the social group named ECF library annex.

    Then, as you get more into it, in the different threads are sticky's, take the time to read them.

    This board is a wealth of E-cigarette information. Just take your time and don't get get overwhelmed by everything. The library is the best place to start, and if you see an acronym with a line under it just place your cursor on it and you will see what it stands for.
