Need to drink water when vaping
I read in an article or a thread here that you need to drink more water while vaping.  Is this true? If so, can you explain why?  Other than the fact it's just good for you.  Thanks once again, Torrey

Yes. Vaping draws out moisture.

  I don't know if there is a specific reason to drink more water while vaping. If there is I have not heard of it. Although I have heard that many people get a case of cotton mouth while vaping, other than that I couldn't say. And I agree that's it's a good idea, you don't really need a reason for it. If anybody does know, please enlighten us.

RE: Need to drink water when vaping
Quite simply vaping ejuice dehydrates your mouth for two reaasons. First both PG and VG absorb water. Now to further reduce the water in your mouth you are heating your mouth up with hot vapor. Heat is a known dehydrate so when we vape at higher watts or higher TC we contribute to the problem. Hence we drink water to replenish what we have lost through vaping.

I replenish my bodies moisture with electrolyte powders.. wait, I'm not rip trippers, of course I don't! Crazy 
Drinking more water is always a good thing, more so while vaping (due to some long words that only AJ knows.) Mosking

RE: Need to drink water when vaping
Drinking water is always a good idea.  Beyond that - PG is a dessicant.  So is VG but to a lesser degree.  PG literally sucks moisture out of your body - especially your mouth - as you vape.  Gotta replenish it.  Real health concerns aside, this is how you avoid "vape mouth" and loss of percieved flavor.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

RE: Need to drink water when vaping
Thank you all for the education.  I just thought it was my meds.  I've been guzzling soda since I stopped smoking all together and chain vaping.  So for every soda, a bottle of water.  I'll also start getting lower PG juice, I'd been playing it safe with 50/50.  -Torrey

Drinking a lot of water while vaping is important because both PG and VG are de-humectants and will dry you out quickly
