We all know e-liquid is a ratio of propylene glycol, vegetable glycerine, flavouring, and various levels of nicotine. On every bottle there is a warning label stating that it should be kept away from children and pets, and for good reason. E-Juice smells wonderful, with an assortment of different flavours.
Children and pets are very curious, often putting everything in their mouths. Electronic cigarette smokers need to exercise responsibility and keep the e-liquid on the top shelf, under lock and key away from pets and children.
It is also important for first-time electronic cigarette smokers to be careful with their own nicotine levels. As a light smoker, you should start with low levels of nicotine. Don’t allow the shop keeper or a seller to convince you to buy an e-liquid with a higher dose than you normally handle. Not only will you walk away with the bottles of E-Juice and a substantial amount missing from your wallet; you could easily find yourself suffering weeks of nicotine poisoning. Headaches, nausea, insomnia, and extreme bloating are just a few of the things one can suffer go through.
Start off small, maybe 6mg. If it’s not enough and you are craving more, buy another bottle with a higher nicotine concentration. Do not take in more than your body is used to. Absorbing more nicotine than you are used to could cause a lot of damage, and in extreme cases, death.
Nicotine can be absorbed into the body in many ways, not just by smoking. It can be ingested as well as absorbed through the skin. This is why e-liquid handlers always practice safety precautions such as wearing protective eye-wear and latex gloves. This keeps them from being poisoned. Being a first time user of electronic cigarettes requires you to be careful and mindful of you own health, not to mention those around you.
