    I have had 2 addictions for 25 years. Cigarettes and diet coke. I am giving up the cigarettes for the vape and LOVING it with one exception. My mouth is worse than cotton. I thought it was from some of my meds.......researched side effects from all of them and nope, not that. THEN I realized it was all the vaping I am doing. Good ole pg and vg will do it to you.

    Does this eventually go away? How do you combat it? I really am not a water drinker (yes, I should drink more but its just too healthy) lol

    I'm afraid you'll need to become more fond of water in order to continue finding vaping enjoyable. The vapor is produced by the moisture found in our mucous membrane, and it must be replenished in order to avoid dehydration ( a most unpleasant condition if you've never had it). There are ways around drinking just "plain old water" (the elixir of life); Crystal Light is a great tasting sugarless mix which makes water even more delicious (I'm lucky enough to actually love water). There are other drink mixes which taste good and still provide a way to fulfill your basic water needs;caffeinated drinks will help dehydrate you further, so don't count them in your daily water total. Try to drink close to a gallon of water a day and you won't have to worry about drying up like jerky.

    "Cotton Mouth" is one way your body is telling you to drink more water, and common among vapers.

    I definitely agree with AuBadge, water is your friend. Most people never drink enough water anyway, and vaping will make it very obvious. I just drink a glass of water every couple hours and have no issues. Also helps me cut back on all the soda/juice I used to drink.

    Short answer ... no. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Most people need to drink more water anyway ... the health benefits of drinking water are amazing. All I ever drank was soda. I slowly made the switch like this: soda, soda + juice, soda + iced tea, less soda & more iced tea, soda for lunch and dinner & iced tea or water throughout the day, iced tea + water ... soda for dinner ....... two years later, I have an occasional soda a couple times a week, and I feel amazing.

    +1 for the crystal lite packets. You can carry them with you and throw them in a bottle of water. The MIO squirt flavors work well to. Either way you need to drink more water or juice or it's cotton mouth and headaches!

    By drinking your flavors will also taste better!

    IMO Drink more water. Vaping appears to dehydrate you a bit. Water clear and clean is best. IMO Hard to improve on it. Sodas and energy drinks have a lot of stuff that add calories and artificial stuff. We get enough artificial in Vaping. LOL IMO

    If you get dehydrated to the point of geting sick (head aches, cramps, feaver) I suggest Pedialight. This is for baies that get dehydrated from diarea ect... I would only recomend it if you are truely dehydrated, and it is about 4x's better at re-hydration that Gator Aid, and the like. It was an old boxing trick to drink a bottle after a fight to keep from cramping. Now USA Amature Boxing recomends this in classes. Best not to dehydate in the first place, but Pedialight can bring you back quickly if you have.

    while its best it doesnt have to just be water, there must be something you like, juice, gatorade, tea coffee. something (gin and tonic) lol

    To funny, I had the same two addictions, gave up the smokes over 3yrs ago, and just gave up the Diet Coke 6 months ago ( lost 12Lbs in the first month giving up the diet coke too ) switched to this = "Black Rasberry Sparling Ice" ******************************************************************************************************************************************************** The Black Raz is the only flavor I like too ) man is it some great stuff, I buy it 4 cases at a time either from walmart, Giant food stores, or on line, give it a shot maybe :)

    If you enjoy tea try going decafe. I starting to wonder about the baby liquid. I've vaped so much on the weekends it's starting to affect me.

    So does fruit juice or squash/cordial that you mix with water work for dehydration too, or would they be too sugary? Last year after I started vaping I couldn't get enough cold drinks down me... it started becoming quite scary! I mean, usually I'm quite the tea drinker but all of a sudden I wanted cold drinks. Now that I'm back vaping, I'm getting the same urges. Last year part of me wondered if it was the central heating, stress, or diabetes! So it seems vaping makes us healthier in many way- we get off the cigs and we drink more water! Cool!x

    I'd imagine any type of liquid could rehydrate you. Just keep in mind that certain ingredients in the liquid could affect how well it hydrates. Example: salt and/or sugar has been used for centuries for drying foods.

    i'm a huge water drinker and actually really enjoy it..on the weekend when I vape I throw in a glass of water while i'm having some beer..this past sat I vaped really hard as I was at a party..I made sure to get water into me and before bed after the night was over I must have drank 1.5 liters of water on my nightly meal..I still woke up and my nose lungs and throat were pretty sore and I had lots of mucous..it's ok though as the amount of cigars I would have smoked that night would have made it even worse..still though I don't find drinking enough water gets rid of my nose and throat issues..it certainly helps but I still wake up with that feeling when I vape crazy..

    Coconut water. Way higher in potassium than gatorade or even most potassium supplements. Most of us don't need more sodium, but if you do, that's certainly abundantly available in savory foods.

    Oh, and just in case no one mentioned this: You have to drink a lot of water when you vape. It will dehydrate you.
