Vaping Involves Certain Adjustments
Vaping symptoms must be known since a smoker needs to effectively adjust to this new life toward better health and wellness. It is crucial to pick the most appropriate nicotine strength so you would not be vaping more than you need to. First time vapers tend to puff more often from an electronic cigarette than from smoking a real cigarette.
In your haste to find the nicotine level that is right for you, you need to be careful in choosing your nicotine level or risk getting nicotine overdose.
Watch out for nicotine overdose symptoms like racing pulse, palpitations, sweaty palms/feet, slurred speech, lisp, muscle twitching, vision/hearing problems, drooling, appetite loss and vomiting. Reduce your nicotine level until symptoms of overdose disappears.
There are some Vaping Symptoms that are not related with nicotine needs. You need to understand the differences of vaping from smoking.
Smoother, Slower Nicotine Effect
Unlike smoking, vaping offers no quick satisfaction. While nicotine can reach the brain faster when you smoke, in vaping, nicotine satisfaction takes more time to occur. It might take a while before you get used to it. Thus, it can be difficult to tell if you are getting too much or too little nicotine.
Another probable cause for the lack of rush effect is the lack of carbon monoxide when you vape.
When you switch to vaping, there are some initial troubling symptoms you could probably experience like dry mouth, sore throat or a feeling like you have a cold. Symptoms usually pass after one week for most people. You can drink more fluids to ease them.
These are the same symptoms you would experience when quitting smoking. Vaping may or may not aggravate such signs.
If vaping symptoms get really bad, you may switch your PG base e-liquid with VG blends. VG usually solve sensitivity issues related to PG. If symptoms persist, you might need to see your doctor.
More Phlegm Production
Probable vaping symptoms may also include production of more phlegm for about a month along with coughing. If you have already tried to quit before, you will know that this is one of the symptoms to expect. Your lungs are simply clearing itself of the tar.
Possible Swallowing Of E-liquid
If you happen to overfill your cartridges or flood your atomizer, it is possible you would swallow or suck the liquid by mistake. This can cause hiccups and you will discover that e-liquids are better smelling than tasting.
Some people also report other symptoms like rashes or itching that would disappear after several days or weeks. Some vapers also say that they noticed their urine to smell more pungent although none can tell if it is due to smoking withdrawal or from vaping. Yet, a solution for this is to drink more water to pass urine easier and with no intensified smell.
Many vapers also notice that they are able to taste foods and even water better since they started vaping. You know just how smoking can cause damages to the senses. Thus, when you begin giving up smoking for vaping, these dull senses will start to be sharp again.
You can smell and taste foods a lot better and appreciate them more. You can try various foods and discern the distinct flavors from each with no difficulty.
