With any “treatment” to stop smoking, there seems to be side effects.
E-Cigarette users are clearly explaining below what effects they are experiencing with their use of this product.
The question is VERY clear to the participant .
With the question comes an answer.
Did you notice any NEGATIVE health or side effects once you were off tobacco using an e-cigarette?
There are some very clear and candid answers below.
These responses are unedited from around the world.
- There was a period with lots of coughing, and my gums where hurting. Turns out I had a lot of flim in my lungs, and my teeth and gums where reacting to increased bloodflow. Made me sceptical for a second, but got over it. NO REGRETS!
If anything I found my an increase in health. My breathing has increased with less coughing, my sense of smell had returned and I can smell things I never thought I could, and my sense if taste has come back so things taste way stronger (sugars and things are more sweet or tart)
I am purging toxins from smoking tobacco for 29 yrs. I did not experience withdrawals upon Vaping, quitting Tobacco the same day. In the first week of Vaping I know I lost 2-3lbs, this not expected. All is a process of recovery, and for the first time in my life, I am winning. I will not touch another Tobacco cig, the thought of smoking a cig makes me want to vomit.
The only negative effects were those associated with quitting smoking, coughing and expelling whatever had accumulated in my lungs over years of tobacco use.
In fact I have been getting a biannual medical for the last 18 years, my lung function was slowly but surely declining until I started ecigs, my first medical was after a year and three quarters of vaping and my lung function is fully restored and thats official.
Quitting smoking made my gums inflame and bleed, hidden gum infection was able to come forward with the returning blood flow after quitting. First 4 days i had bad withrawl even with extra strong nicotine levels, that made me doubt the nicotine as the addictive ingredient in a tobacco cigarette.
When I smoked tobacco I used to get out of breath with moderate excercise. When is started e-cigs I coughed frequently in the beginning, I think this was my body getting rid of the tar from tobacco in my lungs. The coughing stopped after a few months.
Infact, 6 months AFTER I started vaping (25 years after I started smoking), I was required to undertake a medical by my then employer, one of the tests was a lung capacity test, I scored well above average for a 42 year old man that had smoked for 25 years, actually, I scored as high as an 18 year old non-smoker, I think that pretty much proved the validity of vaping to me.
There were multiple positive, and some unanticipated, health effects of not smoking. Some temporary negative health effects of stopping smoking but mainly due to the fact that there are so little information of what happens when you stop smoking.
Only side effects associated with quitting cigarettes and ridding my body of 38 years of smoking. Once my body purged all that poison I only saw improvements. I am now able to walk 10 miles/day without being out of breath. No longer need an inhalant for asthma, and being able to walk helped in a variety of other health issues, so plusses all around
Heavy cough in the first 2 weeks, as the lung were “cleaning” themselves. Did also experience what is called “vapor fatigue, or vapor tongue”. someday taste just decided to stop. All flavors were completely muted. I freaked out a bit, went to a forum then again, community helped. Guy explaining what was happening. Followed the advices, taste was back in 2 days.
My feet & knees ache sometimes after taking up running. If I was still smoking I’d never be able to run 5 miles every other day. *snark*
My heart pains, shotness of breath and overall health seemed to improve dramatically. I had a time I could barely walk a few blocks without being winded .. now I walk my dog for an hour or two with zero issue.
MY HEALTH CAME BACK. I CAN BREATH AGAIN FINALLY AFTER STOPPING CIGGARETTES. EVEN ON AN ECIG i CAN BREATH PERFECTLY FINE AND MY DOCTOR THINKS I DONT USE ANYTHING DUE TO MY HEALTH.
- I feel completely better, no coughing , don’t smell, more willing to get up and do things, like exercise, so many advantages from vaping compared to smoking. It’s a no brainer but the government don’t want us to vape cause they are loosing money, they want us to smoke, for there tax on tobacco. All this gateway stuff is rubbish, just trying to get vaping banned, don’t get me started. It’s a conspiracy by the powers that be to make stuff up about vaping, they don’t want people in authority saying it’s safe to vape.
Actually quite the reverse. Didn’t think because I dipped that I wouldn’t have or wouldn’t notice any differences after I quit dipping. I did though notice my taste and smell are much better now than when I was dipping. Haven’t smoked in a long time its been 5 years since I stopped smoking cigars, 20 years since I quit cigarettes. Just figured cause I dipped there wouldn’t be any changes, oh but there were.
I still have a bad ‘smokers cough’ from years of smoking damage. I now cough up a clear mucas in the mornings. It is unclear if this is Glycerine etc from Vaping, or mucas from an overproduction of mucus from lung damage/COPD
The tar leaving my lungs finally in phlegm form as a result of healing is not an issue to me.
The first 2 weeks, I started coughing quite a lot, and my gums started bleeding when brushing my teeth. Found out that was common when you quit smoking. Dry skin, dry throat, pimples appearing (despite my age). All negative side effects have vanished within 2-3 weeks.
My general health has improved massively, I get very few cold viruses now. I cycle to work and back every day. I have lost weight, It has been one of the most positive things I have ever done health wise.
This information in this blog is provided to you to make an INFORMED decision about your choice to end your tobacco use.
Look to the left and right for organizations & blogs – who are worldwide and there for you.
Join an organization. Be aware. Be active. MAKE some NOISE.
If you’re on the fence about vaping, there’s MILLIONS of experienced vapers worldwide who can help you if you’re still unsure.
WHERE are the dangerous side effects the experts claim? The propaganda and misinformation efforts worldwide is ASTOUNDING from people and organizations who are AGAINST tobacco. I’ll type that again. The people below are against smoking. Tobacco.
You’d think the expert would be correct, done research and giving the BEST advice for anything they’re claiming expertise IN.
I digress. They’re not experts. Vapers are. WE who USE these devices KNOW what we experience.
Before we journey into the abyss of misinformation by these “experts” in health, medicine, tobacco control and idiocy in “journalism”…
let me explain the
FEDERAL POLICY on RESEARCH MISCONDUCT.
With a photo.
In the United States, there’s this:
But wait a minute, Kevin! If they’re against tobacco, wouldn’t they be FOR e-cigarettes? That would be insane!
Well, my fair weathered friend, let me assure you
“I am not just another pretty face”.
By U.S. standards,
I say they ARE breaking the law.
Lets start off with JUST a FEW examples of what is considered at least irresponsibility with misinformation by people who “should” KNOW BETTER, and by my standards, breaking the law, shall we? I’ll call them “Defendants”.
Simon Chapman “Tobacco Control” experts …is just one of my favorites:
Dr. Gounder can’t do research:
A Tobacco Control Organization…
Another fine example of stupidity:
The Mechanic’s View
The CDC – FISHING.
Politicians. No different. Same lack of standards.
Senator Mark Leno:
CDC Director Tom Frieden lying about inflated numbers using “children” incessantly.
Three times on the same day?
The SURGEON GENERAL????
The LGBT HealthLink twitter account deleted this –
one of the most irresponsible tweets or claims I’ve ever seen:
Another claim… yet no proof.
I added this in for the entertainment value, the SENIOR MANAGER of SCIENCE POLICY communications at the American Association for CANCER research can’t find RESEARCH.
Some flunkie from Denver.
I think he is a writer – don’t know -he blocked me.
Oh…. lookie there…. He’s an expert, too.
The insidious claims still being circulated around the world by “experts” are just that.
Well, do they want citizens uninformed to keep smoking?
Why would they do that? Revenue.
They’re still USING “Children” and “Long Term”.
Aren’t you all dead yet from vaping?
From the last survey:
Here is Public Health England on E-cigarettes:

There is something coming… it’s a documentary. A Billion Lives. I’m SURE the defendants above aren’t looking forward to this.
The fight isn’t over. It’s only just begun.
