But I don't want to give up 'vaping' E-cigarettes because I enjoy them! Provided it's only done in moderation there seems to be little danger to my health where E-cigarette vapor is concerned. Also I don't drink, I don't smoke, I don't do drugs, I eat healthily, I keep fit and I'm happy.
erm, you are aware nicotine is a drug right? ;) if you're vaping e cigs your still addicted to the nicotine....

This is true.
Although it's hardly in the same class as Class A drugs, cannabis or even alcohol for that matter. I only smoke the E-Liquid that has the lowest strength of nicotine in it and I only smoke it in moderation.
The next time I buy a new bottle of E-Liquid I'm might even try one that has no nicotine in it at all.
...if you're vaping e cigs your still addicted to the nicotine....
I can't speak for other people but I'd hardly say that I'm addicted. I can quite happy go all day at work without touching it once and then have a few puff later on in the evening when I get home without ever feeling any cravings. Like I say, I vape (it's a silly word) because I enjoy it not because I ever feel a craving for nicotine.

tis fair enough sir. Just wanted to check as I work woth somebody who is under the impressions that smoking e-cigs means they are no longer on the nicotine...
Be interested to hear how you get on with the nictoine free ones...

Nah, just a bit of silly fun. You remember fun, don't you?
Well enough to know it when I see it.
The rofl at your 'joke' is pretty uncouth.
E-cigs helped me quit for five months.
Unfortunately they also caused me to break out in acne, which was pretty depressing. When I stopped using the e-cigs that problem went away. I've read a few similar accounts online. I'm not sure what ingredient might have caused a several month long return to teenage skin, only with wrinkles to boot (since I'm certainly not a teenager any more).
I'm now cutting down again and using lozenges instead. Shame, really. If not for the acne flare-ups I'd have carried on using e-cigs.
You can tell I'm using distraction tactics to break the acrimony!

At the moment, there are no robust studies confirming that e-cigarettes are less harmful than cigarettes (although logically it should be). We can only take the manufacturer's word for it. They're certainly not 100% safe, and are designed to help you quit smoking rather than replace it long term.

I think the worrying thing is they are being marketed as an alternative to cigarettes take a look at the nicolites website.
I’m using them to stop smoking and for that reason I think they work, as you say.
I would like to see them regulated in terms of what’s in them is safe.

I asked the women in the Flavour Vapour shop today what's in their E-Liquid. Apparently the main ingredient is the same stuff that you find in the smoke machines that you get in discos so there's not too much to worry about there as this has been well tested before. Apart from that it just contains an artificial flavouring and a preservative both of which can be found in food products.
All three of these ingredients have been around for decades and have been well tested before. However they haven't yet been tested in quite the same context as they are when used for inhaling them from a vapor cigarette so there are still some studies to be carried out here in the future.
Subjectively they do feel much less harmful that tobacco cigarettes as the vapour doesn't irritate my lungs like tobacco can. Although I have to admit that if I 'vape' for too long or too often the back of my throat can start to feel a bit dry. It feels exactly the same as the dry throat sensation that you can sometimes get when there's a lot of smoke in discos from those smoke machines.
Sorry didn't read the post properly...

I've tried the nictoine free liquid and TBH I can't tell any difference between it and the low nicotine liquid which has 8mg in it. When you try the high nicotine liquid with 24 or 36mg of nicotine you can tell the difference though.
