I hit share on something

Wow. This is the kind of vaping PSA I’ve been waiting for!

I vape mostly unflavored 100% VG at 12mg/mL of nicotine that I mix myself. (I started above 24mg/mL.) I use mainly a Phoenix RBA on a Vamo V2.
I started smoking at 13 or so and my last year of smoking was kretek clove cigarettes I imported from Indonesia because they had twice the nicotine, triple the tar, and are illegal in this country.
I have been smoke free for four years this October and could spend an hour telling you all the health benefits I experience. If you know me in every day life, you’ve already heard all about it.

The legislation and regulation that will almost certainly come to pass soon (and the widespread sensationalized misinformation about e-cigarettes in the media) is unforgivable and will attempt to stop me and countless like me from using what has finally freed me from cigarettes.

So, what happened to me is called Vasovagal Response

Not when Wesley fell, but four hours later.
I texted Terra and told her what happened (he fell and smashed his face on a stone floor yesterday), she asked if he broke his nose. I chuckled but called him in and looked at his face. Uh, yeah, it was all swollen on one side. And suddenly I felt sick, sweaty, so nauseous I couldn’t get up, etc.. I’ve never fainted but I assume that’s what it would feel like just before.
I can remember a couple other times in my life it’s happened… When my parents caught me smoking in my room at about age 13. When I was with Terra after her tonsillectomy. Probably others I’m forgetting. Yet other gruesome stuff in my life (I’ve done some hospital sits, watched my dad die, nuff said), it didn’t happen.

Anyway, so, there’s a name and reason for it. Nice.

Btw, Wikipedia has quite an extensive entry on it.
