Advice needed
Hi all. Need advice...i have emphasemia asthma. And a bad chest infection..i also have multiple allergies...Nuts being the first..then strawberries, lemon, lime, my question is this? I need to give up smoking asap...can I use say  VG oil, as I know PG is the one that causes allergic reactions...can I also ask if I can use menthol flavour? Just wondered if anyone knew anything about this many thanks

RE: Advice needed
Hi Loopz Welcome to TVF. I think a doctor would be the best person to be asking, non of us are qualified.

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..

RE: Advice needed
Vg doesn't contain nuts.. menthol will be fine.. to the best of my knowledge there's never been a case of Anaphylaxis from vaping, as it would be pretty big news for the anti vape brigade.. couldn't say if it's a wise idea for you to start vaping without consulting an informed doctor first though. Confused

Hi Loopz - welcome to the forum. I think you will find all the responses will be similar - best to consult a doctor first - best of luck. Let us know how you get on.

Welcome to TVF Loopz.

Although some flavours are VG based, you'll have to do some serious research on all VG mixes however before anything else.

As others have stated, you really need to consult your Pulmonologist/Alergist.

RE: Advice needed
Hi Loopz and welcome to the forum.

I have asthma and I was the same, getting chest infections every other week along with antibiotics and steroids from the doctor until I started vaping.
I have been vaping for over 4 and a half years and since I gave up the stinky's I have have had one chest infection and that was about one month after giving them up.
Do as the rest have said and speak to your doctor about it.
All my juices are 70VG/30PG or max VG % I can make(Nic and concentrate in PG).
Some people that watch my video's should have heard me wheezing in some of them from the asthma.

menthol will be fine, but you'd better ask doctor.

Well, i would go with menthol but as told above a visit to the doc wouldn't go amiss.

Menthol mist from double drip is pretty good not had any issues or heard of any so far. Smile hopefully you wont be the first.
