    From vaping too much? Too hard? Fact is that it isn't your usual cold chapped lips. Anyone had this problem? Maybe my driptip is to blame?

    Constant chapped lips. Mine might be from not drinking enough water. Or it could be from putting them on the drip tip all the time. I had them from the filter drawing moisture from my lips when I smoked. If you figure out how to solve this let me know!!!

    Me too! I'm trying to remember - drink more and more water, which has helped a lot. Chapstick is my new best friend.

    Reminds me of this joke:

    A cowboy rides his horse up to a saloon. He kisses his horse on the butt before coming in and getting a drink.
    The bartender asks, "Mind if I ask why ya kissed your horse on the butt?"
    The cowboy says "I got chapped lips."
    The bartender says "Chapped lips? Kissing your horse's butt helps with chapped lips?"
    Cowboy replies, "Yupp. Keeps me from licking 'em."

    Drinking more water is the key here but I use vitaminE liquid on them too. Right before bed and the next morning they are good as new.

    I have fought chapped lips all of my life! Yes, it has gotten worse since vaping, I even had one crack that I just couldn't get healed for 1.5 years! It would just about heal, and then crack all over again. How I finally healed it, alcohol to cleanse it before bed, I used super glue once to hold it together overnight, and constant chap stick, and I mean constant! Before bed, 8-10 times throughout the day. It has now finally healed, but I have to keep it moisturized, as it is a weak spot and will easily crack again if it gets too dry. My biggest problem is on the weekends, I don't remember to drink my water on the weekends and tend to get dehydrated then. My lips are a great indicator on my hydration level.

    Good luck! I hope you don't have the issues I did!

    I doubt it's your drip tip, looks like we are all experiencing this to some degree. Guess we just need to be diligent on the water & moisturize moisturize!:laugh:

    My lower lip get very chapped when I'm dripping. I'm sure it's from repeatedly coming in contact with traces of juice. I slather on lip moisturizer, but it doesn't help for long.

    But be careful! DHMO is dangerous if too much gets in your mouth and lungs.

    4 things every vape kit should have:
    1. Bottle of water
    2. Vape towels (some call them paper towels)
    3. Q-Tips
    4. Preferred brand of Chapstick type product

    Might I add strong mints like Altoids to that list to help kill that awful taste in your mouth from vaping that juice you had high hopes for but tasted like perfumed dish soap instead!
