this is my first question. I have a breathalyzer in my car, and I'm scared to blow in it because of the possible alchohol content in my new cappuccino e-juice. origionally, i had a bottle of the USA flavor 18 mg,(GOOD) and there was no problems. I wanted to try a flavor, and i love cappucinnos so i got some from rocky mountain vapor, (amazingly delicouse). Ive searched everywhere to find the content of each individual flavor, but the best fact that i seem to find is that they generally contain 1% alchohol... :rolleyes2: Anyways. has anyone taken a breathalyzer while vaping and gotten a positive reading?

i smoked for 11 years and been off smoking around 2-3 packs a day for almost 2 weeks. AMAZING normally couldnt last 2 hours
sorry for my bad spelling and thank you so much.

I haven't noticed alcohol listed on any of my juices, but at only 1% I don't think you'll get enough to set off a tester. Not positive on that but I think you would have to vape an awful lot for it to show up.
I was vaping when I took my last test for work and it never showed up in the monitor

I've added a couple drops of 190 proof Everclear to a few homemade juices (mostly 10ml batches of clove flavor), but I don't think that I've ever vaped more than about 3mls of juice in a day. That's about one tenth of a fluid ounce (I think) so I doubt that vaping would ever change the results of a breathalyzer test.

E Liquid does contain a small amount of alcohol but not fermented in a way that would set off a breathalyzer. You should be fine :)

This is an excellent question but the content is so minor as in 1% in the whole bottle = very small amount inhaled.

I did have someone I know set off the device after he drank 6-8 non-alcohol beers, so that is certainly something to keep in mind. And of course mouthwash is loaded with alcohol so tread lightly with that also.

I would have to agree with these guys content, I dont think 1% would register...we have a breathalyzer here at work, lemme vape for awhile and I will go try it out and report back for you ;)

thanks!! Im just so worried about this cappucinno flavor i got because it almost seems to have a liquor smell to it. maybee its just the smell of the extracts or something, but Im definetly hoping to get some solid feed back in regards to this... theres got to be someone out there on VT that actually owns a breathaliizer and would test it out. I actually heard somewhere that theres an i phone app with a breathalizer.

wow though, everclear in the juice? holy freakin crap! I bet that keeps the atty nice and clean!LOL

Ok, so I tried the couple different juices I have on me here (Marlboro, 555, and Strawberry) and nothin at all on the breathalyzer. I even took a drag and vaped directly into it...still nothing

My cappuccino is still on order and have not received it yet, but I wouldn't think the outcome would be any different because of the flavor.

Well now that is interesting, could you do a couple of shots of Patron and get back to me with the results. Preferable before you fall on the floor.Posted Image
