I believe it wont effect you. When I smoked all the time I had a permanant wheeze and cough. After a few days of vaping the wheeze went and coughing was much less. So efectively clearing my chest a lot in comparison to smoking.

I also believe it wont affect you.
Again when i was a smoker i had tight chest and cough alot.
Started vaping and the tightness and cough went.
In the first week i think i was coughing more and it wasnt nice What?
but think that was the bad stuff clearing off my chest. Must have been a good thing cause i feel great now.

I jog on a regular basis, i noticed an improvement with my distance. If i ran a ten miler when i smoked i was blowing out of my arse when i finished, now it's just five minutes to recover to a normal rate of breathing so it should have an advantage over regular real smoking.

I do yes, BUT, I also believe constantly vaping wont do you any favours, while vaping as if your smoking that is as often as you might light up is fine and dandy Smiling

Sounds as often as a twenty a day man, I dont see a problem there? Unless each time you vape it lasts half an hour or more Wink
