  1. lol no coffee or beer when vaping? i’m FUCKED

  2. Couldn’t you just drink a big glass of water… then enjoy a cup of coffee while vaping?

    • It has been found that coffee is not a net diuretic and actually net hydrating (but not by a lot). The water in coffee (coffee is more than 99% water) more than offsets the dehydration caused by caffeine consumption.

  3. great article. I had not read anything about dehydration and its relation to vaping prior to this.

    • Neither have I. If I had know this I never would have started.

      • ok really? so you’re going to outweigh the easily preventable (literally just drink water) downside of dehydration over the numerous benefits vaping offers? so radical

        • I’m not saying im going to stop as it’s helped me stop smoking (day 12) but it’s not easily offset at all I drink 3-4 litres of water per day and have still found this a problem and as I obviously cant drink throughout the night I’m dehydrating so badly in the night I’m waking up with bad migraines.

        • Shannon, I would definitely consult with a doctor about your problem. Vaping shouldn’t dehydrate you enough to where you would need to drink water throughout the night.

        • I stopped smoking and started vaping and had not heard or read about dry mouth and now I am suffering I am drinking water and still it’s a real problem my breath is bad and I can’t swallow also vaping giving me bad headaches at the moment …. but that said vaping allowed me to break cycle of smoking ciggies and now I am gonna use nicotine gum but I see the point of the girl you criticised it’s is awful when you have it and trust me drinking more don’t cut it at all its still a real problem for me and I’m gutted real gutted I did love my vape but I have to think of my mouth and more important for my love life my breath lol …..I d listed know smoking is worse for me than dry mouth too

        • Jamie, that’s unfortunate to hear. However, there are many of us that vape that aren’t receiving the same issues you are. The only thing I can think of for your dry mouth issue is being dehydrated – then again, I’m not doctor or expert myself on medical issues. As for the headaches, it sounds like you were using too high of a nicotine strength.

        • I have been using ecigs and vaping for 4 years. The chronic dry mouth has caused numerous cavities in my mouth. My dentist knew the cause and warned me to either quit or use something like Biotene. Dry mouth causes your gums to shrink and a dramatic rate and you will end up losing your teeth.

  4. and did you know… VG and PG can only adsorb 40% of it volume in water, so if you vape lets say 10ml of juice, you loose 4 ml of water… hardly what one could call dehydration

  5. Dry mouth is a huge risk factor for tooth decay, gum disease and fungal infections in the mouth. The microbes responsible for these diseases LOVE a dry mouth.

    While drinking water will hydrate the body, it can also dilute what little saliva is left. Healthy saliva at sufficient levels has many protective health benefits.

    If you choose to vape and want to lessen your risk for these dental problems, it is critical to find a way to increase salivary flow rates and to get the pH (acid level) of the mouth as close to neutral as possible. Products with xylitol will increase saliva flow. XyliMelts and Spry products are good examples. Basic Bites chews also help elevate the pH to neutral. All of these products are available on line and in some retail establishments.

    As a dental professional, I am very concerned about the long term health implications of vaping, but in the meantime be aware that dry mouth is not natural, normal or healthy.

    • That’s great information Anne! I stopped vaping because dry mouth and specially dry nostrils, which was really painful and annoying. The problem is I’m back smoking regular cigarettes :(. I can’t stop, and I was really excited vaping during about 2 years. I hope in the future vaping experience could be improved with maybe moisturizing liquids instead of drying ones :(.

  6. So just drink plenty of water and chew gum or hard candy hardly a downfall considering the awsome things vaping has done for a lot of people.

  7. My mouth gets extra juicy during and after I vape, especially on my first hit, like it fills up my whole mouth(pause). Is that weird?

    • It’s because of the vapor entering your mouth. However, vegetable glycerin has the ability to capture moisture molecules, so when you exhale vapor you’re losing moisture in your throat/mouth. That said, be sure to drink water and stay hydrated.

  8. I’m new to vaping, and am only using non-nicotine herbal formulas with VG. The dry mouth is bad, so I don’t do it as much as I’d like to. Thing is, I have a very hard time believing that the problem is overall dehydration of the body. I drink plenty, and drinking water WHILE vaping has little effect, because even when my mouth is moist when I draw in the vapor, the vapor is actually a little painful. It’s weird. I’m trying to find information on dry herb vaping (no PG or VG at all) to see if the dry mouth problem is less.
