    36mg isn't a dangerously high dosage. I know some people that vape that level. Now 100mg nic makes me nervous. But do I use it? Yes .. While properly attired, I dilute it down to a more managable level for my DIY stuff. Would I ever vape that level? No! That would not only make me sick but could be dangerous.
    Last question: have I ever gotten any juice in my mouth. Many times. But I vape at a reasonably safe level. I would never willingly -drink- it. That's just plain stupidity. But the mg levels, that most of us are exposed to on a regular basis, are much safer than the pure nicotine you referenced. It's all relative. And therefore I think it's a pretty silly question. (and why you may be getting the responses that you did!)

    That's ok. I'm a former U.S. Marine.

    Let me ask you a question leannebug.

    If someone had no experience with nicotine, vaping or smoke juice, how would they know it's a silly question from your perspective, without asking?

    You see what I'm getting at?

    If I had no experience with nicotine, vaping or smoking I doubt if I'd look around for a ecig board, register and ask questions from people that are vaping. If I wanted to know about concentrations, solutions and how to calculate dilutions, I'd probably look for a chemistry board.

    This person stated that they don't vape and don't have any interest in vaping. I'm not saying it's a troll, but the post does have a baiting aspect to it.

    I don't see anybody trying to steal your candy here.

    And surely you must have more to worry about in life than this.
    re: obsessions: I don't have an obsession, I have an addiction to nicotine. I am 39 and I have been smoking since I was 13. If you think I never really tried to quit, you'd be dead wrong. In fact I have been able to quit for up to 6 months at a time at three different times in my life. After the last time that I quit, when 6 months had gone by and the dreams and withdrawal symptoms hadn't stopped I asked a man I knew for advice. He was an older man in his late sixties who had quit in his late twenties. I said, "how long is this feeling going to last? When am I going to forget about smoking?" He said, "I still want a cigarette everyday, you just have to make yourself not smoke one." REALLY? I'm going to live everyday without satisfaction? So I decided I never wanted to quit again, I was just going to be a happy and satisfied smoker.

    In the case of e-cigarettes, YES it is smart to replace one obsession with another.

    re: if someone disagrees do they have the right to come to my safe place and start fires? (because that's what's really going on here): Look, I don't go to the weight watchers support group and start un-researched rumors that the "meal plan" that they send you will cause cancer. I don't need someone coming in here and telling me that my chosen alternative to killing myself with cigarettes might be bad for me. WE all know it hasn't been proven safe. All we know to be 100% true is that the choices are vaping or smoking cigarettes and cigarettes will kill you dead. If you don't agree with my personal choices, why are you on this forum? - it doesn't concern you, it's not hurting you in any way, the more people that you chase away from e-cigs the more smokers you'll have sitting next to you at the tables outside the cafe -- it's mind boggling to me that you "care" enough about peoples health that you'd be willing to convince them to keep smoking. What's up with that?

    re: nobody is trying to steal our candy: That's where you are wrong. We have been in a struggle with a lot of different state governments who, BASED ON FAULTY INFORMATION like the untrue junk that shows up on this forum, are trying to make e-cigs illegal everyday. In fact, we are fighting NY right now. We almost lost CA, but it was overturned. Yes, they are trying to take our candy - even worse, if they do take our candy most of us will end up smoking again.

    re: must have more to worry about in my life: Yes, I have a lot of more important things to worry about in my life and I'd like to live a long time so that I will be able to worry about them for many years to come. If e-cigs are made illegal I'll worry about the important things in my life while smoking a Camel Filter, if e-cigs get to remain legal then I'll worry about them with an e-cig in my hand.


    The trolls always think that if e-cigs go away, we'll just quit vaping. They forget that MOST smokers are never able to quit in their lifetimes - if e-cigs go away most of us will end up at the gas station buying a pack of cigarettes. I don't know why they can't let us have a less harmful alternative?

    Here I am trying to avoid the liberal/conservative battle/timesuck that I usually spend my time in, and this thread looks just like the one that I'd been ignoring on the political site. Troll ("newbies" using smilies is always a bit suspect) or not, it's always useful to keep putting the right information out there.

    I've been lurking this forum for weeks, finally signed up, but if I'd just gotten into the vaping thing, I'd have had some of the same questions. Since it is a health/risk issue, not "feeding the trolls" isn't the most helpful option...
