    Hey Guys,

    I really hope this question isn't posted all the time but I am just kinda concerned because of the current vaping discussion.
    So I started vaping 2 months ago. Generally I hit my Smok Trinity Alpha three to four times a day and if I do so I just go for the buzz. Two deep inhales (until the LED turns from green to white) and then just enjoy it. I make sure that I live an active lifestyle with a ....load of sport. However, since vaping is presented I am concerned if there might be some severe dangers connected to this vaping behavior.
    I really hope you don't perceive this as troll post.

    Hi and welcome,
    Why do you think we would not perceive this as a troll post?
    You admit to beginning to vape during a time of heavy media reporting of an unknown "vape illness" that kills mostly young men.

    If you are not a smoker or a nicotine user, common sense dictates that you should not vape.
    If you are worried, see your doctor.

    Cheers
    I

    Hi I smoked Hookah for a long time, gave vaping a shot and liked it.
    I'm aware that doctors might be the right source for any medical advice. However, I often perceive it that doctors themselves don't know what's going on with current topics and often times overgeneralize. I know that THC cartridges can be sketchy but I don't know if the presented severe health issues can also occur with vape products. I wanted to look for an honest report from long-time users because I find them more reliable in this circumstance than overgeneralized news.

    As long as you buy quality eliquids, or make your own from quality ingredients, you shouldn't have an issue. Same with your devices. No sketchy stuff, used properly and cared for.

    If you have an allergy to any of the ingredients.. all bets are off.

    Also, soon, you will have adapted to the nicotine and no more buzz unless you stretch it out that 3-4 times a day to 3 or 4 times a week...

    Nicotine vaping is for smokers wanting to get off and stay off combustible cigarettes. If that is not you, you should not be vaping, in my opinion. Nicotine vaping is far better for you than smoking, but doing neither is better for you.

    X vaping is fine. Y vaping is definitely linked to lung injury.

    It's better than smoking. 101.
    If you dont smoke already, then don't vape.

    The ultimate goal is to quit completely, and with vaping you have total control of your nicotine intake.

    Perhaps that is your goal, but please don't assume (or imply) that it is (or should be) everyone's goal.

    Ah sorry, yes of course :) I'm sure most people aim to quit all together, but if they don't it's fine. You do you.

    I'm curious: What makes you think that most people who've successful switched to vaping "aim to quit"?

    I wonder this too. I have zero desire to quit vaping kind of ever. Because, if I did I know I would return to smoking fairly quickly. There is something to be said for vaping to quit, for SOME people.

    I was a three ppd smoker for decades and I tried EVERYTHING to quit. Except hypnosis (I can't do it) or Chantix. But, literally everything else.

    So uh, I have found a viable substitute (for me) which, I am certain has SOME impact on my health (that can't really be measured yet) and I have ZERO ZERO no desire to quit vaping. I would return to smoking eventually, continued vaping until my death is probably safer "for ME."

    YOU may want to quit, which is fine but don't speak for all vapers, it's not really fair.

    Vaping is not harm free I don't think. I would not advise a non smoker to begin the habit. But, well, whatever. If you do, you do.

    I tried hypnosis once. It worked -- for roughly half a day. :blush:
