    Consistant purchasing of new equipment, juices and spending way too much time on the ECF have been the side effects experienced by many vapers.

    There is some great inforamation in the medical threads on this forum. I'll suggest that because vaping is new "in the scheme of things" there is no 100% guarantee but that vaping is considered safe for most excluding those with preexisting problems including heart disease. There is a wealth of information about health and vaping - nothing I've read suggests that there are any contraindications to taking vaping up as an alternative to smoking.

    That's a really good question and one that I'm sure a lot of us would like to know. I can't tell ya... I'm just shy of the 30 day mark. However, I do know the long term effects of smoking (28 yrs.. PAD+): Stink, broke, can't breathe, shunned, stink, sick, look older, yellow finger... and ultimately: the very high probablility of death or disease directly realated to smoking.

    I love vaping myself, so I will add the positives since I have stopped the analogs: Don't stink, can breathe (getting better everyday), feeling better everyday, happy, don't stink, yellow finger is gone and not as broke (lol... I am enjoying trying LOTS of stuff) and most importantly for me: knowing that I am now analog free.

    All kidding aside... it is a good question and as far as what I think: it's better than the known long term effects of smoking.

    The thread I'm about to dump a link in here to not only shows known symptoms of cigarette detox, but talks about some symptoms experienced by vapers over the course of time (both good and bad). I can tell you that medically-speaking, PG is used in hospitals to keep the air clean, plus in many asthma inhalers. VG is also used in asthma inhalers. Both are used in toothpaste, shampoo, etc... so while people do, in some cases, experience problems with one or the other of these, typically one will work for you, and they're both considered "safe" by the FDA for use.

    Anyhow. Here's the link, and you might wanna take a look: A list of symptoms when quitting tobacco and changing to an ecigarette

    Yes indeed. Preliminary studies indicate the use of personal vaporizers may be a contributing factor in cases of post-mature aging.

    Happy Post-Mature Vaping!

    Until a multi-decade study is conducted, one can only speculate. But to wit, the number of known e-cigarette deaths since 2003 (the year the modern devise was invented): zero. The number associated with incinerated tobacco over that same period? Well, I'll have to look that up. Safe guess it's a tad higher.

    No one makes the claim that vaping is safe in the absolute sense. The operative term is reduction—as in harm reduction. I'd be surprised, frankly, if 20 years from now the verdict is that ingestion of propylene glycol for an extended period is perfectly harmless.

    In the meantime, the effects of taking in 4000+ toxins—dozens of them known to be carcinogens—is well documented.

    Most of what is in ejuice is PG and VG. PG has been shown to be safe for inhalation and I believe the same to be true of VG but with less studies. You can never be 100% though of course. I think in moderation it's fine, however chain vaping all day and night probably won't be too good for anyone due to the levels of nicotine.

    [QUOTE=King Belly;5485472]Most of what is in ejuice is PG and VG. PG has been shown to be safe for inhalation....

    Er, I don't think so. Nobody knows, long term. Definitely better than ciggies, but as PI said above: I'd be surprised, frankly, if 20 years from now the verdict is that ingestion of propylene glycol for an extended period is perfectly harmless.

    I think that ANY chemical inhaled is harmful to the lungs.

    That being said, of course it's better than smoking.

    O.K., I'm lazy. Are these symptoms or long term effects? Big difference.

    I've only been vaping for about 22 months, and all the effects I've seen so far have been good. When I first started, I was using too much PG and got some irritation from that, but that doesn't even count AFAIC.
