The Nicotine Dangers of Electronic Cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes. Although they do not contain the numerous hazards that are found in regular smokes while delivering nicotine,e cigs do not eliminate the risk associated with using nicotine. If you choose to make the shift to vapor smoking,it can be a healthier alternative but does not eliminate the inherent dangers of nicotine.

Why Is Nicotine Dangerous?

Nicotine has been found to be a large risk factor associated with heart attack. It will raise your blood pressure,speed up your heart,and is considered a vasoconstrictor (ie it makes it more difficult for your heart to pump blood through your arteries). Nicotine also is a catalyst for your body to release stores of fat into your blood and can result in gout by restricting blood flow to your extremities.

Nicotine Addiction is Hard to Beat

On the good hand,nicotine has not been proven to be a carcinogen. It is,however,one of the most addictive substances on earth. Trying to beat nicotine addiction has been likened to trying to quit hard drugs such as heroin and crack cocaine. Due to the addictive nature of nicotine,electronic cigarette companies market their products to people who are regular smokers and not to non-smokers.

Nicotine Can Be Deadly

Nicotine is a poisonous substance. If your child or pet were to ingest your e liquid,it could prove to be fatal. If you already have high blood pressure or a heart condition,it can be harmful to your health potentially resulting in heart attack. Most companies will recommend that you keep your e liquid locked away so that your family can not access it when you’re not around. If you are making your own e liquid,you will also need to pay special attention to wearing personal protective equipment to avoid splashing the liquefied nicotine on your body. A lethal dose of nicotine for a child can be as little as 10mg where for an adult it will normally be between 30 and 60 mg.

How is Nicotine Measured in E Liquid?

When you buy e liquid for your electronic cigarette,the e juice will come in bottles measured in ML with specific nicotine contents measured in MG. For example,0mg,12 mg,18 mg,and 36 mg with some variation between manufacturers. When you buy a bottle of e liquid,if it is labeled 18 mg it will have 18 mg of nicotine per 1 ml of e juice by most manufacturers. As a comparison,a traditional tobacco cigarette contains approximately 12 mg of nicotine.

  • Indeed Nicotine is a Dangerous drug,one cigarette has enough nicotine to end your life. Most of the substance goes up in smoke though and you do not die. The cost associated with smoking e cigarettes is enourmous as well. You might end up spending more as a reult of e cigarettes than you were compared to real ones. This is because you are smoking more to get the desired nicotine levels you would probably get from one cigarette. That and E cigs feed your habit they do not address it. I am 18 days cold turkey and have never been happier.

    I have to diagree with Michael,i have been smoking for 38 years and as soon as I bought my e-cigarette,I quit smoking completely,something that was very hard for me to do taking other quit smoking products. I buy the 36 mg e-liquid and it gives me the same satifaction as if I were smoking the real thing.

    Michaels’response is typical of people who have never used an e-cig product. These products have saved many lives. I have COPD (look it up),and my doctor is glad that I’m using this alternative. I haven’t had an asthma attack,or needed my inhaler in quite awhile now. Just because YOU quit cold turkey,doesn’t mean that this method isn’t a viable solution to others. They are so popular now,that even gas stations are now selling disposable e-cigs.

    I agree with Stephanie. I have been a dedicated smoker for 10 years now. After purchasing a high nicotine dose electronic cigarette,I am happy to say hat kicking the habit for lack of better words has been easy. I am ecstatic that such a product exists and don’t mind spending a bit more knowing that it is less harmful than cigarettes. The only worry i have is that it is so easy to pick it up and smoke more often that I normally would. That being said,I feel it is a good step in the right direction and I am a happy Esmoker:)t

  • I too have been a smoker for several years;26 years to be exact. I tried patches,gum,and even cold turkey,and all had the same results….I couldn’t quit. A friend of mine turned me on to an e-cig device called the Joye eGo which is more like a device than a cig. It has a very similar size and shape of a small AA flash or penlight. I can honestly say that my lungs haven’t felt this good in years. The “juice”,as it’s often called,consists of vegetable glycerine (base),nicotine,and flavoring. That’s it! No other chemicals found. No nausea,no weakness or fatigue,and most of all no anxiety!
    Since I have switched over I feel substantially better due to lack of poisonous chemicals. Let’s face it folks there’s no real “safe”way to enjoy nicotine,but these e-cigs really cut down on unnecessary risks one would take in smoking.
    The whole process ends up being substantially cheaper as well. Yes,the “up front”expense is higher,but for the price of a national brand carton of cigs you can have 2 complete units (rechargeable batteries,and atomizers) and a package of tanks (if you go that route). The juice is roundabout $9 to $10 for a 20ml bottle and will last an avg “vape-er”around 3 weeks.
    There’s even full on mods and things you can do to actually make it even more enjoyable as well! I highly recommend e-cigs. I will NOT be going back to smoking period.

  • one other thing I’d like to mention concerns frequency. At first you may find yourself “vaping”more than you would be smoking,but it may also be due to the level of nicotine contained in your juice. The nice thing is they have strengths ranging from 36mg (highest),all the way to 0mg. I personally like the 24mg because it’s closest to the content of a regular smoke.
    Don’t be too concerned with the frequency in which you vape because,like myself,your body will tell you when you’ve had enough. Not by getting nauseous or fatigued but rather you simply won’t crave it. The frequency will diminish over a relatively small amount of time and you’ll suddenly realize,“wow,I haven’t vaped in a while”. The benefits of vaping are vast and risks are minimal.
    I no longer have ashes all over everything,my clothes no longer reek of smoke,my energy levels have significantly increased,I almost never cough,and when I do it’s not a 20 minute struggle for life and breath,so on so forth.
    E-cigs pretty much saved my life at this point. Had I continued smoking I firmly believe I’d either be knocking on death’s door or at bare minimum would be in the waiting room…hehehe.
    Don’t worry,just DO YOUR RESEARCH,and gain as much detailed knowledge as possible. Ask questions when going to purchase. Try to purchase from trusted sources online such as puresmokers.com or cignot. These places are of the utmost highest customer service and are not affraid to explain the nuts and bolts of what you’d be getting into. Just keep that all in mind and you’ll be safer and smarter! Happy vaping!

    Well I recently purchased an e-cigg and since then my blood pressure has increased to a dangerous level. I am down to 2 ciggs a day,but is it worth the risk factors. I am now going to toss it out after reading this information. I thought there might be a connection between high blood pressure and these electronic ciggs. Please be very careful if you already have hypertension,they can be detrimental to your life.

    I’m thinking about making my own flavoring,and I’m thinking of using Almond extract. I see that you said oil should not be used,but does that mean one is better than the other or,that oil CANNOT be used period? It seems like it would be easy to make personal flavorings from products bought at places such as Whole Foods. I cant seem to find anything about this anywhere on the web. People just want you to buy their flavoring. But it cant be that hard,or is it?

    “As a comparison,a traditional tobacco cigarette contains approximately 12 mg of nicotine.”

    What drivel. A Marlboro lights cigarette has 0.5 mg of nicotine (although it has 6 mg of tar too). This makes buying e-cigarettes a bit tricky. For those people concerned about nicotine intake from e-cigarettes,you will get an “average dosage”equivalent to a tobacco cigarette. So even if you order lower strength cartridges (such as 6 mg ones),sometimes you’ll get 0.5 mg and sometimes you’ll get 1 mg. Not sure but maybe there are times you’ll get 2 mg (not good).

    Whatever other people say,I say stick to lower strength nicotine when buying e-cigarettes. What concerns me is that all these people doing e-cigarette reviews on YouTube,etc. start looking more and more washed out as their e-habit progresses. Personally,I don’t smoke for the tobacco or the nicotine. I smoke to take a break with a coffee,etc. For people like me,low-strength nicotine should do.

    There are lots of other lifestyle factors that are bad for your health- excessive alcohol,fatty food,caffine,shift work,stress,pollution etc etc. So in the big picture whats a little nicotine vapour if it stops people from also ingesting the other multitudes of harmful chemicals that come with smoking. Lets face it we can’t aim for perfection. I’m all for harm minimisation. Thumbs Up for a step in a better direction. I haven’t touched a real cig in over a year thanks to my e cig. I am now running 10kms again on a regular basis,my skin looks great again,I’ve lost weight and feel so much healthier. I don’t expose my kids and others to second hand smoke,my house,clothes and car no longer stink. I’m saving a fortune and i don’t have to feel constantly guilty about smoking cigarettes. Yeh It’s not perfect but I’m a lot helthier even with my vaping then a non smoking,junk food eating binge drinker. I’ts all about putting things in perspective.

    There’s some pretty bad information here. A regular tobacco cigarette does not contain 12mg of nicotine. It contains 0.8-2mg of nicotine. You can confirm this by looking at the cigarette pack,if you’re in Canada at least. Most brands seem to be 1.2-1.8mg per cigarette. 12mg would be nearly an entire pack.

    To respond to the addiction part…yep,totally still addicted to nicotine. But now it tastes delicious and doesn’t give me cancer.

    I was a 20 year smoker,that had not missed a day of smoking EVER,even when pregnant. I ordered my ecig and have not picked up a cigarette since. I share the same opinion as most here:they are healthier and less expensive. I spend in a week what I use to spend on cigarettes in a week. I also enjoy the benefit if not smelling like smoke for my husband (who hates smoking) and my children.

    I am 63 years old,and had been smoking since I was 15. My mother passed away last summer,and I vowed after watching her struggle with enphysema,COPD,etc.,that I would quit smoking. As of 1 September 2011,I have been cigarette free. After a couple of weeks,I started using the ecig,and have been using it ever since. I no longer crave cigarettes at all. The only drawback is because it is so accessible,unless I put it out on the back porch and only smoke it out there,I seem to be using it too much.

    I don’t know,I hesitated because you never know what will come out years later about how bad these things were. BUT,husband bought me one for a long road trip…..to have a few drags before retiring,and not worry about second hand smoke,or the bed catching fire from a dropped cherry,or the ash,the butts…..hey,so far it’s great. Got a little head rush in the beginning,and they are much heavier….but so far,I only use a few regular cigs throughout the day. I have a feeling that as I am grossed out more and more with the ash and butt scenario,I could easily be using these alone. The price difference is amazing.
    Yes,you could smoke more,but I find I puff less,as I’m not forcing myself to finish an entire cigarette so as to not waste the money spent on an entire pack.

    I just smoke what I need.
    That’s a good thing for me,as I used to be a two pack a day smoker.
    AND,maybe I won’t smell like cigs eventually.

    IF I find out years from now that they really were bad,oh well. I lived in three different cities that were nuclear reactors,and have been surrounded by professional crops using insecticides. What really am I avoiding?

    I have to say,I am 30 years old,my husband is 38,he has been smoking alot longer than me,I have been a smoker for 11 years,we purchased the Green smoke electronic cigarettes,and love them. We have a 3 year old little girl,and I want her to have her mommy and daddy for a long time. So many times we have tried to quit with the patches,gum,lozenges,cold turkey,you name it. If this is the way to do it,I’ll take it :) I love the Idea that you can step down your nicotene little by little. I would recomend them to anyone that has tried to quit or really wants to quit. I don’t feel guilty anymore. Everyone who is using them,I give all my love to you and wish everyone luck with them :) Happy e-smoking!!!!

    Been totally off Cigarettes for 3 years now. I find the smell of cigarettes now repulsive and love my e-cig. It was trial and error at first to find one that had a good enough battery to last a day and I have tried numerous liquids until I found the ones I really like. I am still concerned a little that I have an addiction albeit safer in many ways than conventional cigarettes. I do feel there needs to be legislation because the dangers of leaving e liquid around pets,kids,etc are not documented well enough in the public domain. Again I found these out myself over time. Plus added none of us actually know what we are vaping? The fact we are told by some retailer who is in turn told by their Chinese exporter that the product is of good quality does not necessarily mean it is. We are so desperate to believe that something we enjoy doing is safe that we hoodwink ourselves. That said i am over the moon that I have broken the cycle of smoking conventional cigarettes. Overall i do feel a lot healthier.

    I bought my 1st VIP ecig pack today and have to say Im very excited. After years of wanting to give up my 20 a day habit I feel I have found the right product at last. Ive tried patches,gum,inhalers and those awful tablets that make you feel sick! But its all psychological for me,I want the pychical feeling of holding a cig and “smoking”–at least for a while. They taste similar –not like that ghastly gum,and to all intents and purposes you are smoking,but JUST nicotine and not all the thousands of additives that are in a real cig that do the MOST damage,as nothing is getting to your lungs. So,like most people on here,I think thats an excellent start. I really want to stop my house,car,clothes and self,stinking like an ashtray. The money saved is at least similar to using patches etc,and like most,find cold turkey an impossible task,so why not use ecigs!? They are certainly better for you than the real thing. Im writing this on day 1 of my new life! best of luck to everyone reading this x

    I have been using an e-cig for about a year. I used nicotine patches and other smoking cessation products in the past,but would pick up the “nasty habit”of tradition cigarettes again. When my youngest child said to me,“Daddy,you stink!”after I came inside from smoking,I knew I to try something else. So a co-worker recommended the e-cig. I bought a starter kit with 2 batteries,a USB charger and A/C adapter with 5 disposable 18mg cartridges from a local smoke-shop. I choose the disposable cartridges over the liquid-drops for the convenience of only having to carry a spare cartridge in my pocket and for child-safety. The cost for the disposable cartridges are half the cost of cigarettes (1 cartridge = 1 pack of cigarettes) in Stark County Ohio. Even though both batteries need to be replaced (just like any rechargeable battery),the cost of one battery is the same as a 5-pack of cartridges. Not having my kids smell cigarette smoke on me,yellowing teeth,shortness of breath and COST difference outweigh the “possible dangers”the FDA is currently researching. One other benefit;I only take 2-5 puffs when I feel the “urge”to smoke,then I put the e-cig back in my shirt pocket or night stand. Try that with a traditional cigarette and you better have a fire extinguisher handy.

    I have been on the e-cig since January of 2012. I was still smoking cigs but much less that if I hadn’t had the e-cig. 10 days ago I stopped the cigarettes all together. I love the e-cig but I am not sure if I am getting the right level of nicotine because I have been extremely crabby but I have not touched a cigarette and can already tell I am breathing better. Lung issues run in my family and I had no choice but to quit. I smoked for 30 years and I hope I never touch one again. I smell better and my house smells amazing. Best of luck to all e-smokers.

    I am 46 this month I have smoked since I was around 15yrs old…I have tried everything and nothing worked. I went to the e cig. and yes it does help if you get the right one. Some issues I found is that no one seems to carry the same one’s. so you end up with 3 or 4 based on your travels. Anyway…I was on that for 3 months…no cigs….it was hard and yes I went through withdrawls….the other day I don’t know what happend I went out bought a pack of cigs and smoked a few half cigs. put the pack down and now four days later I have not had anything. No cigs…No e cigs…yes I am going through some withdrawls not overly too intense though light headed tired and blah blah blah but really I went through worse when I went to e cigs and put the real cigs aside. I guess what I am saying is I couldnt do the withdrawl of both at the same time but one at a time it is possible and although not easy I can and will continue my venture as a non smoker…..thanks to e cigs….

  • I’ve smoked off and on (mostly on) for 40 years. Diagnosed with cancer last year,ironically not lung or anything to do with breathing. Even after a couple of miserable rounds of chemo I still wanted to smoke. Now,a year later,I am using a vapor system and I am thrilled! I came on here looking to find what the dangers of vaping (love that term,thanks) are and saw that it can cause high blood pressure. I have very low blood pressure so,Excellent! My family is also thrilled about my non smoking,and that is the best part for me. What a relief this has been.

  • Most of what I hear is that most are not smoking cigarettes
    but are now smoking E-cigs.There are still other chemicals
    and you are still addicted to the nicotine which is a significant factor for heart desease and heart attacks.Do some research.

    I most definately am grateful for the electronic cigarettes. I am 44 years old and just watched my dad pass away with lung cancer at age 66 new years eve 2012 and my mom pass away with COPD at age 63 in 2010. I vowed to do better to both of them. And i have .. as hard as it has been this year. I smoke a real cig when i want to just to stay in control but i have done extremely well for a 30 year smoker. It has to be better than the stuff i have been inhaling for all these years …i pray that i can keep going for the sake of my future and my childrens future. I just wish these devices were around long enough to save my mom and dad

    Jodi sorry about your precious losses. Your parents were still young. And I agree with you that e cigs are safer than tobacco cigs. So keep going,and thanks for sharing your touching story.

    I started vaping 2 years ago after smoking cigarettes the previous 40 years. My preferred nicotine level is 1.8 which pretty much matches the nicotine level in cigarettes (other than the Camels,Old Golds,etc. from my earliest smoking days). Since quitting cigarettes I no longer smell like them,my clothes don’t smell like them,I breathe better (can smell again),I have far more energy than I used to have (even though I am considerably older) and find no real downside. Frankly,I can’t stand to be near a cigarette smoker anymore because of the smell. O.K.,nicotine is addictive and I am an addict. However,this addiction in no way affects my work and play time and harms no one else. The only medical downside is a California report that described possible birth defects in children born of smoking mothers. I am neither. I think the nay sayers who know nothing about the product ought to keep their mouths shut.

    Oh,and by the way,I have had low blood pressure most of my life but since I commenced vaping my blood pressure has risen –to an acceptable level. Sounds good to me.

  • Ok u say a regular cigarette has 12mg of nicotine I was smoking 3 packs of ultra light menthols a day,I smoked for 55 years. I have copd I have been smoking e-cigarettes 36 or 24 mg for over 3 years 1 cigarette will last me probably as long as1 pack of tobacco cigarettes did,they have saved my life. I am on oxygen but I truly believe if not for e-cigarettes I would be dead now. I love them and will probably have 1 in my hand when I die.
