Interesting. What is the PG/VG ratio of your juice? It might be a PG sensitivity/allergy or a flavoring.

The problem with these things is that kids are using them instead of taking up smoking, because it is fashionable. I think for as many people who use them to quit smoking, twice as many will start because of these. Call me old-fashioned, but there should be age restrictions and taxes imposed to discourage their use.
If you assumed concerned doctors or “consumer-rights advocates” are the driving force for regulation in Europe and the U.S., then you haven’t been paying attention to way profit and politics interact. If you said Big Tobacco, close, but no cigar. Philip Morris, R.J. Reynolds, and Lorrillard all jumped in the e-cig game in the past two years. They’re not opposing regulation (the big guys rarely do), but they’re pushing back on the most onerous rules. Big Pharma is the real foe of e-cigs, and Big Government is their weapon of choice — on both sides of the pond. This fall, the European Parliament considered new rules regulating e-cigs. E-cigarette manufacturers, of course, lobbied like crazy to block the proposal, and it seems they won. But the drugmakers fought for stricter regulations, for obvious reasons: E-cigarettes compete with prescription drugs that are supposed to help people stop smoking.
TextSo… Pfizer’s nicotine suspended in propylene glycol is good. But my nicotine suspended in propylene glycol is bad. Mine tastes like watermelon and honeydew and is delicious and doesn’t cause me to cough or have burning in my throat, while Pfizer’s admittedly does: “Side Effects: Many people experience mild irritation of the mouth or throat and cough when they first use the Nicotrol Inhaler. Most people get used to these effects in a short time. Stomach upset may also occur.”

That's actually a symptom of quitting smoking, I believe, not due to using ecigs. I had "quit" smoking cold-turkey many times over the past few decades and each time, my teeth got sensitive and my gums would bleed.

E-Cigarettes are harmless. They only contain one ingredient:
Cigarettes like the Winston's I smoke contain a list of chemicals that reaches the 1000s.
