Thank you everyone for your input. My plan of action is to cut back on vaping, as well as going from 18mg to 11mg. I figured that since my body isnt used to taking nicotine in its vapor or smoke form, trying to cut down on the nic intake will probably help.
I got a sick and a chest infection when I quit smoking and started vaping nic, but .. I did stay up 2 days with only 1 hour sleep, went to work and might of eaten a suspect sandwich, yeah that might of done it :S lol
Vaping Hot is the heat of the vapor, such as using a low resistance carto/atty or higher voltage battery can cause the vaper to become hotter.

Possible. Switching can cause chemical inbalance, as compared to your previous state,
therefore immune system act accordingly while mucus change to your new habit/hobby.
There is a pretty big lack of research at the moment about the effects of vaping. I know there are a lot of people that like to claim this is some kind of conspiracy or some such thing by tobacco companies, but I see no reason to jump to such conclusions. Electronic cigs are pretty new compared to other nicotine delivery systems, and there is actually several ongoing research programs looking at the effects of e-cigs by rather neutral parties. It is true that some governments, such as the U.S. government seem pretty deaf to e-cigs as a better way for addicts to get their nicotine, but that is more politics an ignorance than anything.
What is known is there were several studies done (actual papers published and I will find them again if you wish) concerning the effects of propylene glycol on the respiratory system as well as on the body. In one study, they gassed chimps with concentrated PG and then introduced contagions. What the study found was that PG acts as a rather effective anti-bacterial agent. It also binds to liquids easily, reducing the moistness that leads to respiratory infections. Modern medicine likes to use expectorants for this very reason...to get rid of mucous and other liquids in the lungs to reduce infection.
The other two components of E-cig juice, water and nicotine, have no known properties that would increase the likelihood of respiratory infections. The only thing I might point out is that flavored liquids might complicate this equation. I personally use flavorless liquid, and in my own case, I have noticed that I have not contracted a respiratory infection since I began vaping. I generally had 2-3 of them per year before. I have no been vaping about 2 years, and that is a long time for me to go without any RI's.
The Wow cartos have quite a bit more VG than the premiums.Maybe you should stick with the premiums and less VG.
Its nice to be important,but its more important to be nice.
