HEy everyone out there in vapor world... I had a bad accident happen to me a couple years ago right around the time I shut my business down (for the mean time) temporarily... Anyways the following I am going to tell you is a very true story and I kept it mostly a secret because for some reason I thought it getting out could "hurt" the e-cig community and hurt what was going on with F.D.A .. I mean as far as I thought I did not want to be the "example" they used to stop sales or trade of liquid nicotine products.. BUT now i think it may help you all to know what can happen and how quickly someone will perish if they consume nicotine in the following way.... here is my story:

A couple years ago I was sleeping.. Was not drunk, High, or ANYTHING except for ...sleeping.. I was on a medication for hormones that made my mouth so dry I could not swallow. Anyways to let you know back then I would buy my nicotine at 500Mg/Ml VG.. I would then put it in the fridge to keep it out of light and heat which destroy nicotine, as I think since they store it nitrogen cooled before they ship it to keep it fresh it only makes since to put it in the fridge seeing how cold slows down progress.. Well I got up in the middl of the night and must have been sleep walking AND thirsty and it was about 9 am in the morning..

I was completely asleep when next thing I knew I took a swallow of 500Mg/Ml nicotine solution,, As SOON AS that nicotine touched my tongue I woke up! I instantly rinsed my mouth out and ran REAL QUICK outside and was yelling for help as there was a neighbor I had never met before across the street I was yeling at to call 911.. they were using a table saw , turned it off, I said call 911 and they shook there head and turned there saw back on! *******! then i went to the neighbors house and banged loudly on the door and when she anwered I told her her this "I swallowed 500mg/ml nicotine and you need to call 911 and tell them I swallowed 500mg/ml nicotine solution 500mg/ml and I am going to pass... then face planted into the lawn into a normal grass lawn but at the time it looked like the field in the wizard of oz that is all colorful... MIND you that it was LESS than 1 MINUTE from when that nicotine touched my tongue and the time I was unconcious.. It was not even enough time to call 911 myself... seriously I was out cold in less than a minute...


THEN WHAT?

Well I woke up a week YES 7 DAYS later and they told me I had A-Phibrilation (sp) also called "A-Phib" which is when your blood pressure decreases SO low that it pools in the heart... They told me it took 7 days to get the nicotine out of my blood and the whole time I was unconcious.. I have a heart arythmia from it and am not on blood pressure medicine (Beta Blockers) ...


So the moral of this story is DUCK TAPE YOUR MAIN NICOTINE BOTTLES SO THAT NO ONE CAN ACCIDENTLY GET INTO THEM!!! Drinking nicotine will kill you! I am not even joking.... I damn near died because I had it in a unlocked container!

I am all better now and put duct tape around the liter bottles now so that if I did sleep walk again to get a drink i won't "Accidently" drink the half pure nicotine... Now I buy PURE (well 99.8%) nicotine and I would have ben dead if I would have consumed that! ONE DROP OF PURE NICOTINE ON THE SCALP WILL KILL YOU! THE AMOUNT IN ONE CIGARETTE IF EXTRACTED OR EATEN WILL KILL YOU!


No joking here nicotine will make you die one of those seizure atrophied muscle type deaths and watching someone die from that would be heartbreaking so do yourself a favor and take this story as a lesson on how serious this stuff is when it high MG like that... even 100mg/ml could kill you so PLEASE BE SAFE!!



I know this sounds like I am an idiot but things happen on accident and this just happened to be that .. so please no negative comments would be appreciated ;)

Thank you for reading!

That really is a scary story, and you are a very, very lucky man !!! I know the FDA is always looking for damaging information, however, nicotine is legal and it wasn't a vaping accident.
I am glad you shared your story....Nicotine is a very dangerous drug in high doses, and I think we can forget just how dangerous.

I am glad you are still with us !!! I would add a lock to a container in addition to duct tape....

Hey thanks Kitsune! Well I duct tape it from top to 3/4 down the bottle so it takes some elbow to get into it plus I hide it now lol

500mg (which is per ML by the way) is a very very high concentrate. It shouldn't be duct taped, in fact, it should be locked up in a chemical facility. The moment I read you kept it in your refrigerator I already knew where this story was headed. Glad you're ok.

500mg?? I didn't even know they made liquid that strong. Glad you're ok, but some pretty no-brainer stuff could prevent an accident like this, and I don't mean to sound like i'm negatively commenting, but your 'moral of the story' is off and still isn't safe, especially if you're not the only one in the residence. Duct taping the bottle is not fixing what's wrong with this picture in my mind.

1. 500mg liquid in just unneccessary and dangerous. I understand everyones got different preferences but at that level you're begging for something bad to happen. I know nothing about DIY but if 500mg liquid is required, you shouldn't store it where people regularly go to consume food and liquids.
2. Along those lines... if you're going to refrigerate it get a minifridge or something. Who wants a bottle of poison sitting in their fridge? Duct taped or not...

Again, don't mean to sound negative, to be honest I'm still concerned for your safety. Be safe and be smart...

I said that after that I do not keep it higher than 200mg/ml as I buy it pure then cut it down immediately to a safer amount to work with... I no longer store it anywhere where anyone could get ahold of it but this was 2 years ago

also our home is also our e-liquid business so am i not suppose to have nicotine in the house? It is just the wife and I and she knows how to properly handle them...

And I ordered it at 500mg/ml and then stored it to cut down further i never ever work with 500mg/ml I cut that down even further to 1-200mg/ml
