Anxiety, Anyone??
Hello Everyone, I am a non-smoker who is looking into non-nicotine vaping as a possible anxiety reliever. I have been dealing with anxiety/panic attacks and I am willing to try any safe alternative other than meds.

Pretty much just looking for anyone who falls in this category and can give me some input.


Thanks!!

Nicotine AFAIK acts as a stimulant, so is likely to make anxiety worse. Depends what underlies it though. If caffeine makes matters worse, so will nicotine.

RE: Anxiety, Anyone??
First off, Welcome. Second, I actually found this article in relation to this...

http://ecigarettereviewed.com/free-your-...e-anxiety/

Also on in article on Reddit (Which is really long so i wont post it unless you want me to.) One vaper mentioned that "Focusing on nothing but the inhale and exhale is what calms me down." hopefully this sheds some light on this subject. Like Don said if caffeine makes you get anxiety then nicotine will to so if you do go in this direction, I would say 0mg juices. Cheers mate. [Image: good.gif]

 Thanks for the input.

What about  non-nicotine vaping?

Since it involves relaxing and taking deep breaths it might well work for you. I'll dig out the stuff from work tomorrow and PM you if there's anything useful. 

Learning some breathing exercises might help. If so, why not make them taste good? Just make sure you are using flavours intended for inhalation. Not all food flavours are safe to inhale.

Welcome to TVF! Good

I'd say vaping zero nicotine wouldn't cause any additional anxiety problems to be honest, you'll probably find it quite relaxing actually.

I cant see how zero nic in a nice flavour would be in the least bit harmful, the devices are commonly called e-shisha's, but there is no reason you couldn't use a good dripper and zero nic ejuice, you may also find mixing your own juice, wrapping your own coils and tending your gear a therapy in and of itself.

Personally, if the anxiety is getting you down, I feel anything is worth a shot, Dons more of a specialist in this field, I only offer opinion, but a hobby may help as much as anything else, if nothing else, please feel welcome to drop by and say hello anyway. Smile

RE: Anxiety, Anyone??
Thank you all for your input. Went out and got a starter kit for myself yesterday with 3 different 0mg juices. Really did keep my mind entertained for quite some time. Smile Just gotta get the hang of the mods  and tending to the gear.

Thanks again guys.
