    I quit nicotine when I quit smoking ... when I started vaping I immediately went for 0mg as I was already off the smokes for quite a while.

    Will be interesting to see the outcome @JohannB

    I get the sense that many folk try to get down to zero with vaping.

    I have not cut down much. Still on about 18mg in some devices, 12mg in others currently.
    But I only vape about 6-8ml per day, approximately.

    @Silver perhaps you should include a third category of 'both of the above' e.g. I alternate between zero nic and 3mg as I eventually want to cut out nicotine altogether. Unfortunately, as the poll stands now, I can't participate.

    My opinion would be this puts you in the category of you vaping with nicotine.
    Its not about the strength or frequency. Just whether it is at all included.
    Until such time that you don't vape any nicotine... you are vaping nicotine :)

    @JohannB I'm one of the folks trying to get down to zero nic with vaping. See my post to Silver in this thread, asking for a third category in the poll.

    Thanks for the tag @Hooked - but this is @JohannB 's poll, not mine ;-)
    If he feels like adjusting the poll, he is welcome to do so. Just shout and any of the A&M team can give help if necessary.

    On the point of your situation, I tend to agree with @TheV above. If you vape nicotine occasionally, I think you are still a nicotine vaper. If I understand correctly how JohannB is doing the poll, he is trying to assess who still vapes nicotine and who doesn't.

    Hi! I agree with @TheV I’m trying to determine the ratio of vapors that is purely (currently) vaping for the flavours without any nicotine and those who vape with nicotine (even if it is on an on-and-off basis).

    To be blunt: I would not be vaping if there were no nicotine in. It’s worse than drinking “Bavaria” beer at a braai.

    I stay with my nicotine. I believe it does more good than bad. Yes, it's addictive, but it also have the same effect on the brain as caffeine according to some experts and helps with concentration and may even prevent or delay Alzheimers or Parkinsons (can't remember where I read that). I quit smoking to get rid of the tar and other carcinogens, not the nicotine.

    Edit: Found it

    It's not proof, but it's an interesting read.

    The main side effects of reasonable use of controlled nicotine intake is in some, a slightly increased heart rate and blood pressure. As pointed out, similar to caffeine.

    Nicotine, per se is not as harmful, if consumed in the right dose. And nicotine is not for everyone, as is any other substance, or drug not for everyone.

    Nicotine does not cause heart disease or stroke — outright. I cannot stress the “dose” issue enough.

    But what us “Nicky-Frieks” enjoy the most, is the immense feeling of satisfaction and reward when we vape. Of course, the whole ritual, from the vape twisting in the air to the hobby of building, even “collecting” is also amazingly pleasurable.

    Bottom line: Nicotine strokes all the right pleasure points in the brain. No doubt. It is one of the most addictive substances on earth.

    I enjoy my nicotine, and feel better knowing I am decreasing my chance of early demise from consuming it in vape, by about 90%

    As a non nic vaper, i get the satisfaction you describe by changing the weather with my clouds, getting great flavour out of it, and experiment with different builds and hardware.
    So just a different ttpe of addiction:pesas:

    Oops! Sorry @JohannB for thinking Silver was doing the poll. Getting confused with this and Silver's requests for suggestions about the forum.

    If the day ever arrived when nicotine was not available, that would be the day I quit vaping.

    When l made the transition I used 18 nic.as I was advised by my B+M.It was explained to me that having a lager amt.of nic helps quitting. That said I've gone down to 3 just to give me that little kick.I probably could eliminate it altogether but I think it's mostly psychological at this point.
