I'm reading many of you mix your usage of analogs and Electronic Cigarettes....

For you that use Electronic Cigarettes and smoke Analogs as well, BEWARE!!! Using both in conjunction can be highly toxic and can cause a serious harmful reaction by your body, inducing you with NICOTINE POISONING. I have been the victim of nicotine poisoning twice now, once due to mixing my use of analogs and Electronic Cigarettes, and another time due to too much nicotine consumption (I vaped way too much which I first got my Tornado, 24mg juice to boot). Nicotine poisoning can be fatal, and is also referred to one of the worst momentary sicknesses there is. It can be compared to EXTREME food poisening that lasts for an extended 5-7 days, the first 3 days being critically severe. Please be careful people! I am only posting this in regards for your safety! I suffered nicotine poisoning because I did not know that mixing analogs and e cigs were toxic to your body. I also did not know the limits of nicotine comsumtion when I first started using my Tornado. Take this as a warning and keep things in moderation, always.

At first I thought it was food poisoning, thought I had eaten bad food from Del Taco... I went to the doctors, they told me I had Gastroenteritis (which I did have, but is a side effect of nicotine poisoning), which is inflamation of the stomach/intestines, usually caused by food poisoning and did not once think I had nicotine poisoning (I did explain I use an E cig and is quitting smoking analogs). I actually asked the doctors for an IV to help my severe dehydration by they declined my request saying I will be fine. BULL ******* ****!!! :censored: I was so pissed off to hear TWO Ph.Ds completely falsified my condition... A week later when I regained some energy, I studied up on my condition and concluded it was nicotine poisening 100% (PM or post if you would like details on my conclusion). So that makes me smarter than a Ph.D right? :lol: No it doesn't... but I find it truely sorry that I was able to conclude my own evidence in a few days over the opinions of two Ph.Ds who could not identify the severity of my condition what-so-ever. (I remember my urine sample was really dark, as dark as ive ever seen it, the doctor said "Hmm, you need to drink some more fluids son". And I wanted to say, "Well no **** doc, the human body cannot retain any fluids if intoxicated with nicotine poisoning". But anyway I wasn't worthy of an IV in their opinion... yet when it came down to it, I was probably one of the most viable patients in need of an IV.

If you begin to vomit and you taste an extremely bitter, disgusting taste, that may be a sign that your body is intoxicated with nicotine poisoning. If you think or know you have nicotine poisoning, your should seek medical attention immediately, and make sure you clarify specifically that you have nicotine poisoning... You will be treated differently.
However I did not seek any medical attention during my first sickness (which was much more severe than the second time and also from using analogs and e cigs in conjunction with eachother) for I thought it was only extreme food poisening that will pass in a few days. I stayed in bed, completely immobilized for 3 days and rested the next 5 days going to the doctors office once. When the nicotine poisioning symptoms went away, I immedieately got a horrible cold (lots of mucus in chest and head) that lasted for 3 weeks. The entire nicotine poisoning sickness DESTROYED my immune system. I then got a series of smaller/inferior chest colds or sinus colds.

I am now just getting my body back to 100% health. It has taken me 3 months to fully recover from what started out at Nicotine Poisoning.
It is now the end of March(30th), the initial sickness began in late December (25th). Yes, I got nicotine poisoning on Christmas Day. I missed all the holliday events including New Years, it was very disappointing... :wallbash:

Ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power.

Edit - I did seek medical attention (doctors office) after the 5-6th day of my first nicotine poisoning sickness.

Geez I really don't like how you can't edit your posts after a set amount of time... :X
Or edit the post title at all... Yes I spelled poisoning wrong... sigh... :thumbsdown:

Also, this was something that was not expected and I also had no knowledge about to begin with. This simply just happened to me and I had to deal with it as it presented itself.

I haven't had that problem, but then I don't smoke an analog until I've not vaped in at least a half hour...and then I only make it thru a few drags cuz then I remember it tastes awful.

For the dehydration though.... If you run into that again, I'd say get some pedialite. That stuff rocks. It's not as fast as an IV of course, but it WILL hydrate you much better than water will.

I get dizzy after a few drags of an analog, and if I vape too much.... If I do, that's a sure sign to stop, to me. I drink some water, maybe suck on a peppermint or butterscotch candy. If I really feel I gotta vape then I pull out the 0 nic and vape all I want.

Even without nicotine poisoning though, you need to keep drinking water.

This was a dehydration unlike anything I have ever experienced before. I was a high school athlete playing football and baseball my entire four years and I also played baseball in college at HSU, so I know how to maintain my fluids properly. I hardly ever get dehydrated in general; I smoke weed daily so I do make sure my bodily fluids are always cycling.
The doc actually recommended for me to buy some Pedialite or Pediasure, I almost laughed in his face at the thought of drinking baby juice. But the factual background of the pedialite is superior to that of any sport drink or water how you said. The reason why I was using analogs and my e cig together was because I was still in my transitional phase of quitting smoking cigarettes. I was smoking a few analogs then vaping a little, more analogs; rinse and repeat for the first few days... That **** nearly killed me... bah :no

Wow!! So sorry you had to go through that.

There are warnings on nicotine patchs and other cessation devices that warn not to smoke when using them. Could cause an overdose of nicotine. It would seem that cigarettes give you all the nicotine you can handle then to add more would be dangerous.

I guess I missed the warnings on products I wasn't using... lol
Maybe there are warnings regarding the use of electronic cigarettes and analogs together... I guess I missed those too. I haven't really found anything specifically relating to the use of e cigs and analogs in conjunction with one another. Maybe becuase e cigs are so new, there are hardly any cases in this manner... So I guess you can just learn from me, the easy way... since I learned the hard way.
In my honest opinion, I felt I was ill-advised of any kind of toxious harm towrds the body in relation to Electronic Cigarettes. I really had to start digging stuff up on the web to get the anwers I was looking for. Seems like warnings should be blatantly displayed and easily accessable by the public. I felt this was not the case.

Also, when I purchased my first Electronic Cigarette from Smoking Everywhere at a kiosk in the mall, I talked with the vendor for at least a half hour about all kinds of e cig related stuff. Health issues was one of my main focal points of the conversation, and absolutely nothing was directed by him towards toxious bodily harm or the possibility of nicotine poisoning. Yes that guy was a shmuck and was also not very educated when it came to the Electronic Cigarette industry in general. Everything I have learned about Electronic Cigarettes have been self sought and with the help of you fellow vapers here at Vapor Talk.

Well to give the mall guy credit I've not seen a lot about that problem anywhere, including here where we often discuss all the health benefits and dangers. Most people I've talked to that did both during transition had no problems and certainly nothing like you've described.

You may be more sensitive to it than average. It's a good reminder to us all that nicotine is NOT completely harmless, just like a lot of things, too much can kill ya.

I very well could be sensitive to nicotine without fully knowing it... I have never experienced anything like this in the 5 years I have been consuming nicotine. I understand many of you here are on your 15-20+ years of nicotine consumption... those exposure levels between me and some of you differ greatly; that could be all the difference right there. I just think the potential risk of nicotine poisoning (any risks for that matter), when using analogs and e cigs in conjunction with eachother, should be known by users before they ever get their hands dirty. Otherwise you might get your hands all bloody like mine... I could have died... I suffered an uncontrollable seizure which stopped my breathing for about 10 seconds, which left me laying there on my side foaming at the mouth. Anything capable of severe health problems like that should be known by its users whether you(community) agree with it or not. That is what I believe and that is how I will pursue my cause.

I just really feel that many people just don't know that it is potentially hazardous to your health to smoke analogs and vape and e cig together.
That is all I want to get accross to the community.

Yes. I assumed it would be dangerous because smoking and wearing the patch together are dangerous.
And you cannot just take off the patch and have a cig either, because it takes time for that nicotine to work thru your system. Nicotine doesn't live in your system LONG but if you overdose on it it doesn't HAVE to be long, does it?
