I'm just looking for opinions here, since none of us obviously know for sure, but I'm just wondering if anyone's ever felt they were vaping too much. I know I've read threads about this before on here, but lately I feel like I vape ALOT during the day when I'm working, not so much at home, but then if I go out, I can go through 2 Riva Batts in one night. I can say that I never wake up with that feeling of "UGH, I smoked way too much last night." But lately I've been waking up with sore throats and stuffy, and my lungs seem to hurt a little. This could also be attributed to my allergies, but I just wanted to know if anyone else has ever felt like this from vaping?

I think you'll find that most of us vape a lot more than we ever smoked. I believe that it's partly because we can without the trouble of going outside or finding a place to smoke.
Also because it's just plain enjoyable compared to what smoking was....a habit.
I think some of the sore throat may be from the PG/VG in the mix. They tend to dry out your throat some and you really need to keep drinking something while you vape.
And like you said, some may be from allergies. So keep mindful of the situation and if it persists you may want to see a doctor and have it checked.
Either way....enjoy!


Good luck and happy vaping.Posted Image

Too much vaping? I don't think there is such a thing. LOL Actually, I do vape a lot more than I smoked. But I would have smoked a lot more if not for the cost. I have noticed nothing negative about vaping too much other than when I was vaping high nic and vaping too much. I got lightheaded and a bit dizzy then. I fixed that by lowering my nic level. Now I don't have any problems at all. I do drink a lot of liquid while vaping and maybe that's why I'm doing okay with it. I don't know. I just know I enjoy vaping, I vape whenever I feel like it, and it works for me.

I did just switch liquids and am currently using a different distributor than what I normally do. I also had to go with 12mg nic because they dont' have the 10mg that I'm also used to. I have noticed before their Juice I think has more PG which I'm a little bit sensitive too. And I know about drinking alot and staying hydrated, but I definitely do not do that. I'm all about the coffee in the mornings which is less than hydrating. :coffee: I'm just paranoid that this (vaping) is going to end up being bad for me in some way. After all, it seems like everything that is enjoyable ends up being bad for us.

When I first started, I really did notice a considerable soreness in the throat region. Very itchy and dry. After reading in the forums, I decided to try a VG based Juice to see if I would encounter less irritation. To be honest, I didn't really enjoy the VG based Juice as much as the PG. After a few weeks, all of the discomfort in the throat just went away. I rarely have a dry sore throat anymore.

All I can think of, is I also was having some allergy issues at the time, alongside from kicking a long habit of cigarettes. I vape 10-15ml a week, and I'm feeling great. Hopefully this will pass for ya.

I have given myself a nice headache a few times, occasional sore throat--and I definitely vape more than I smoked.
Inhaling any chemicals into your lungs isn't 'Healthy' -- cleaning chemicals, smog, dust .....
For me personally--I feel so much better overall since I started vaping vs smoking. The best option is always to quit altogether, but since for me, thats not going to happen, I'll take my chances with vaping.
Its good to be a bit paranoid--Like snubber said--if the symptoms continue, might be a good idea to get checked out.
and drink more water.....Posted Image

I absolutely vape more often than I smoked but I also have worked my way down the nic levels to adjust. I also switched to VG.

I think it would be hard to over vape in the normal range (0-24 mg). Over 24 can make you a little too wired, increase insomnia, and increase the danger of over dose from getting Juice on your skin. Unless you spill Juice on your skin or have heart disease I wouldn't worry too much about over vaping. You can't over vape on accident because your body tells you when you are at your limit. If you body says stop just listen.

Yeah, the best thing you can do is just stop vaping when your body says you've had enough!

That happened to me yesterday when I started direct dripping. Got a little headache like when I used to smoke too many analogs. That is when I knew to set down the e-cig and go in the other room to do something else. It was gone within an hr.
