Suggestions for vape forums ???

Hello guys,

I am planning to start vaping and wanted your help.

I wanted to know of a few vape forums which are as good as BLF or as close to.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

not sure if we are allowed to link to other forums here, but “vape forums” leads to a selection of good ones. the 2nd one on google is the one a friend of mine is using. ECF is the other big, good one.

Vaping is obviously a bigger field of interest than flashlights, so most larger forums are less personal than BLF.

If you vape anything with nicotine in it, you're just asking for cancer.

Nicotine is a stimulant, just like caffeine.
Smoking cigarettes can lead to lung cancer because of long exposure to tar, not to nicotine. There is absolutely no tar in the vapor of e-cigarette because there is no combustion = no risk of lung cancer.

Do your research.

Vaping fluids with nicotine in it causes cancer.

This is just a belief, and there's nothing intrinsically true in it unless you decide to believe. Sure you can find proof, but any evidence is just consequence of already established beliefs.

I remember I had a neighbor which already in its high sixties went to the doctor for an examination. After the tests the doctor told him “I've found some tar remains in your lungs' radiographs, this means you either smoke a bit sporadically or someone around you is making you inhale the smoke from its cigars”. He told the doctor “look, I've been smoking more than two packets of cigarettes a day for nearly my entire life already. Glad I'm so healthy, thanks!” 

 

Cheers Smile

People are still vaping? I thought it was just some stupid fad that came and went.

Okay, I learned something.

The nicotine may not cause cancer, but what comes with the nicotine does.

So the nicotine is addictive, and the rest of the stuff causes cancer.

“the rest of the stuff” comes when you burn tobacco, not from vaping. It seems you have a particular hatred for vaping. Won’t waste any more of my time.

No, it comes from vaping as well.

Read the page I linked to for the truth.

Am I the only one that watches the news everyday?

It has been brought up many times on the news that vaping liquid with nicotine in it causes cancer.

At this point, it's common knowledge.

Here in the UK Vaping is seen positively as a smoking cessation route, and a lot of clinical research has re-enforced this message.

E.g. see https://www.nhs.uk/news/heart-and-lungs/long-term-vaping-far-safer-than-...

And https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/e-cigarettes-a-developing-pub...

And https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/e-cigarettes-and-vaping-policy...

And https://www.nice.org.uk/news/article/help-people-make-informed-decisions...

This is official information, published after careful study, from our National Health Service, our National Institute for Clinical Excellence, and our Government.

Who are not in thrall to Big Tobacco, unlike the US, though BT’s lobbying has rather wrecked the EU availability and vaping scene with stupid restrictions. Funnily enough BT are engaged in trying to dominate vaping by buying up all the successful companies, converting their products into locked-in cartridge systems rather than just dropping a few drops of juice onto some cotton wool and some DIY wound coils.

I had to stock up on a significant volume of Nicotine solution just before we were limited to 10 mls per purchase (yes, truly)

They are also leveraging up for the Cannabis market, which will probably be huge.

Even CocaCola are at it (many years since they had to remove the cocaine from Coke, reluctantly. Their message used to be “If you want one, you’ll want another…)

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-09-17/coca-cola-eyes-cannab...

American business, where ethics, never mind morality, seem not to exist, and if the legislature can be bought, hell, why not.

And yes, to my critics, I am in a very grumpy mood at the moment, but I’ll try not to inflict much more on you.

My left mouse button has also been gradually failing from overload, so it’s time for a new one, but they just don’t seem to be made properly any more.

Advice requested please for a good one.

My gaming mouse died yesterday.

It was right-clicking all by itself.

I usually spend less than $20 on my gaming mice.

The mouse that died is no longer in production, so I ordered this for $16:

I don't know how great it is because I don't have it yet.

It was the most appealing gaming mouse, from my point of view, on Amazon for less than $25

Yes, big tobacco has a huge influence on what is reported to the American people. Even to the point of marketing their own vaping devices and then labeling them with a list of possible resulting diseases that probably exceeds that of working at the Hanford Nuclear Facility. Mighty shady group but that’s no surprise.

THIS would be a good place to ask questions and get advice. Smile

Yeah, except nicotine vaping is so new that I don't think cancer rates or death rates have been established yet.  ;)

I think the unknown is what happens to the chemicals that are in vape juices, or whatever they are called, when they are burned into a vapor. I know a lot of the chemicals are harmless in their normal state but I also know that some of them become quite carcinogenic when heated to a vaporizing temperature. One chemical, I forget the name, gives off formaldehyde when heated and turned to vapor.

I don’t know, I don’t have a dog in this race so it means very little to me. Seems everything now days causes cancer. Or is it that all the drugs they pump into us weaken our immune systems down to a point where they can’t fight the cancer cells anymore. I will not and do not take any antibiotics or antivirals for anything. I lick dirty things and don’t wash my hands after going to the head. Hand sanitizer? No, unnecessary. I give my immune system a work out. If it got to sit around on it’s fat butt all the time it wouldn’t know how to do anything. Big Smile

Same thing with Beryllium Copper.

You can actually eat it without ill effects in the short/long term, but turn it into a fine powder and breathing it will be extremely carcinogenic.

In regards to smoking and nicotine, it’s not the nicotine itself which can hugely increase the risk of pulmonary cancer. It’s EVERYTHING ELSE inside of the cigarette, like hydrocarbons burning, heavy metals like cadmium, carbon monoxide, and in relation to hydrocarbons, you can breath in TAR!

The problem with nicotine is because it’s turned into very fine particles, it has the tendency to spread extremely rapidly into the blood stream, and into the brain. Nicotine is also very concentrated in cigarettes, so they are the fastest and most efficient way to get addicted on it.

Vape juices usually have much lower concentrations of nicotine and much lower carcinogens. Meaning the LD50 of e-cigs is much lower than cigarettes in relation to cancer rates/person.

Yeah.

We all know the most cancerous thing is dihydrogen monoxide.

It’s everywhere, and is the single cause of death everywhere in the world. Nobody can live without it, and drinking it only makes your death come slower.

WARNING:  All chemicals in the State of California are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Well as a surfer my number one fear is inhalation of hydroxyl acid.

Smoking killed my mother at the age of 70. Needless to say, I do not hang with people who smoke anything.

Crop tobacco and get that gum under your arms and of course your hands. After that tell me burning that crap and breathing it in your lungs voluntarily is ok. Smoke inhalation is just plain old stupid.

I cannot recommend this mouse.

The gaming mouse that I settled on is in this thread:
