History: I've smoked a little less than a PAD on average for the past 30 years. I've quit more times than Mark Twain and was quite good at quitting but always relapsed. Originally I'd quit because of asthma, more recently the fear of cancer has kicked in. I started vaping exactly two months ago and haven't had an analog since. After trying to educate myself online, I decided VG would be the best choice for me. I have a zillion allergies and thought I'd avoid the PG risk and the VG sounded more "pure" to me than PG.
For the past two months, I've been vaping Halo Malibu 12 mg as my ADV and interspersing Virgin Vapor 100% VG Peach, and a mixture of Virgin Vapor 100% VG Mint Tingle & Malibu Kris Kringle.
Yesterday, I used two new juices. One was an 30VG/70PG lemon meringue (don't know if that's relevant) from the local vape shop which (supposedly) uses US pharmaceutical grade products. The other was 80VG/20PG from an online vendor that I read excellent reviews about on this forum. This 80/20 mix was super thick - very unlike the 100% Virgin Vapor that I was used to.
Last night I had a horrible asthma attack. I'm still not recovered. (I have inhalers and I do know when it's time to seek medical attention). My lungs feel like they'd feel after a night of being in a bar drinking and smoking too much. Last night I found the ECF Library and read the article about VG vs. PG vs. PEG and the article stated that people with lung problems shouldn't use VG!!!
Two things changed yesterday - the local vape shop 30/70 juice and the 80/20 online vender juice. If the culprit is the VG, then the online vendor's juice would be the problem. If the culprit is the thickness of the juice, the online vendor would be the problem. But, it could be the juice from the local vape shop. I don't have any way of knowing. I went to the vendor's webpage this morning and could find NO information about the source of his fluids, just that mixes them himself.
If the VG is the culprit, then why doesn't the juice from Virgin Vapor bother me? Actually, one of the flavors from them I use very occasionally, and the other flavor I mix with Halo. Perhaps my typical daily intake of the VG from Virgin was lower than my intake of the fluid from the online vendor yesterday.
I know you all know a ton more than I do re the juices. Do you have any ideas for me? Other than dropping every juice and sticking to the Halo?
