    Default Is vaping bad for your lungs/breath?

    Im currently training for a 1.5 mile run in 11 minutes and i have about 2 weeks

    i have been vaping now for a few months but was wondering if it effects your lungs at all? i rung the shop i got it from and he said its basically just water vapor so it does no damage to your lungs.

    was hoping you guys could give me confirmation?

    It is much, much better than smoking. Most people say they breathe easier. Can't really give you much more than that. It's not water vapor. It's either propylene glycol or vegetable glycerin. PG is used in breathing treatments, asthma inhalers, fog machines, medicines, cosmetics, food, etc. VG is used in cosmetics and food. The rest is made up of flavoring and nicotine. Check out the medical section of the site.

    it is not water vapor. its more akin to artificial fog from a fog machine. it has a slight drying effect but as long as you stay well hydrated and avoid vaping for as long as you can before the event you will be fine
    Spent vaping: ~$1040

    thank you subversive. excellent answer, youve compared smoking with vaporising, how would you compare some1 that doesnt use a vapour to some1 that uses 1? would there be a big difference?

    im trying to weigh up my options, if there is little difference to some1 that doesnt use a vapour to some1 who does then i will buy myself some more e liquid if its going to make my running slightly harder i will knock it on the head

    I would say pure air is best. I don't really know. I can only look at it from an ex-smoker's perspective and tell you that my lungs feel much better since the switch. I'm not aware of any hard evidence for lung function differences between nonsmokers/nonvapers and nonsmoking vapers.

    My only concern, in your case, would be staying hydrated. Get some electrolytes flowingand you should be OK. While scientific studies have not concluded. (And most likely, never will) that vaping is beneficial to pulmonary function, there have been studies that show vaping is up to 98% healthier than smoking. I know, first-hand, that my respiratory function has improved since quitting smoking (started vaping).

    As far as breath, there's no tar to stain your teeth, and I must say, I don't ever recall feeling like my breath was funky, since vaping, unless garlic or too much coffee was involved.

    Good luck with your run!
