How to test nicotine in e-liquids

So you order some bulk unflavored NIC juice from your supplier. How do you know what you ordered is what you got? Unless you test it, you don’t. Suppliers are only human. They can make mistakes. Even if they are very sure they are mixing the proper ratio of NIC...

VAPING TECHNOLOGY COULD HELP ASTHMATICS

As I mentioned in my very first post about e-cigs I mentioned that my impetus for quitting smoking was that I suffer from asthma. I’ve had it since I was 20 but continued to smoke all that time anyway because I couldn’t break the habit. To combat the asthma I would...

SEEING E-CIGS MAKE SMOKERS WANT TO SMOKE

In what may possibly be the dumbest study ever done a study found that when smokers saw someone using an e-cig it made them want to smoke. I smoked for 30 years so I may have some insight on this. Do you know what always made me want to smoke? Everything. Get up? Got...

RETURN OF THE EXPLODING E-CIGS

In this piece from an Irish news site a woman over-reacts to her 3-year-old play smoking and somehow connects it to vaping. However she does bring up a valid question. Is it ok to vape in front of your children? That depends. When you smoke did your kids know about...

ANOTHER VAPING BAN BASED ON IGNORANCE

Vaping lounges are basically coffees shops for vapers. You can go there and hang out, talk with other vapers, maybe enjoy a new flavor of e-juice, etc. You would think that people would be happy that so many people are quitting smoking that lounges are being...
