    Hi I have been vaping for over 2 years now and have had some issues with certain juices giving me fluttering in my chest even at low doses of nic. I have been mixing a little recently and I have noticed this happening with flavors that contained alcohol. I was just wondering if anyone else has noticed any thing like this? Not only this bothers me but juices that contain alcohol don't seem to smell or taste the same.

    I've never had this issue. But you could try steeping those liquids with shaking and leaving the caps off for a while. It will give the alcohol a chance to evaporate.

    If it's one of those plastic dripper bottles, I find it helpful to remove the plastic dripper top. Opens up the bottle more and allows more alcohol to evaporate.

    I agree. The alcohol flavors are just that flavors. I use Everclear in some liquids but haven't has any of those side effects. There are some DIY guys that use whiskey & burbon in there liquids to get the flavor, but I haven't tried hat YET. Been thinking about it though. LOL
    SchmityKy is right . try letting them steep without a cap to let the alcohol evaporate first though.

    Thank you for the idea, it should have seemed obvious that the alcohol would evaporate.
