    Smile C.O.P.D and vaping

    Hi All I am still very new to vaping and am on a sharp learning curve , and i appreciate the help given here .I was diagnosed with COPD 3 years ago after a bout of Pneumonia . I have been a heavy smoker for quite a few years . i gave up for 3 months after i left hospital , but i started again as the urge to smoke was dominating me .
    With COPD I was coughing constantly and had to clear the mucus out all the time . sleeping was bad as i would have to get up every hour to clear my chest , so i was sleep deprived .the medication they prescribed made me worse , so i got off that.
    so at the age of 63 i had resigned my self to a deteriorating lung condition . that is until i discovered Vaping .
    After 3 days of Vaping My chest cleared I could sleep all night "Yea" i am on a nic mix so my craving for Stinkies is tolerable ( No longer smoke ) . i told my doc and showed him my E Pipe ( My first vaping device ) and he was impressed and approved . and said stick with it . i now have a SID which is much better than the Pipe . so i hope I can stick with it , and continue to clear my lungs of tar etc .
    has anyone else had a similar experience ?

    Not so serious but similar, my lungs are fine as I never inhaled altho' smoked 16's for 50 yrs, but I had a chronic wheeze which kept me sleepless thru' having to constantly clear my throat...... all gone now since not smoking..... sleep like a baby now ( ..and No! I don't cry all night..LOL!)

    Cool

    Hi Tez,
    I was in the same boat as you almost to the letter, Like you when I had pneumonia and being hospitalised I was able to quit for about two months, however, back-slid and took up the filthy habit again brought about I think by varying stress levels. I have been now for 5 days and have no urge whatsoever for a normal cigarette. Admittedly I made my own nicotine juice as I was totally peeved at not being able to buy it in Oz.

    The Juice was simple to make, all I did was boil up my old rollie tobacco about 5g that I had left simmer it for 5 minutes and allow to cool. Then I strained it through muslin and mixed the residual tobacco syrup equal parts with VG Glycerine which I finally found in a health shop. My cartridge only takes about .75ml and I use a 3ml syringe and a veterinarian needle to fill it. 5g of tobbaco boiled up in the fashion described, has produced enough juice concentrate to last me I would estimate 2-3 months. I tested the mixture in a close closed environment and there is no tobacco smell whatsoever.

    Have a Happy Smoke Free New Year
