My diet is great and I have excellent body fat. no health issues found. I really enjoy the oral fix. Do you see any long term effects? I am using a organic formula with no propl/glycol? sptc

Thanks for sharing your concern,

I am happy to know that your health condition is excellent with regards to blood pressure and heart rate.

It is good that you take healthy diet and in good shape.
Your use of E cigarettes with respect to low nicotine it depends on what strength of liquid you use, you have mentioned less than 1 mg/day.

Nicotine is addictive and its use gives pleasure that is reason people use it.
If we consider its long term use best would be to quit the use.

It may lead to high blood pressure, heart problem, Headache.
Hope this helps, I would be glad to answer any follow up queries if any.

Thanks for your follow up,
My sincere advice is to quit the use of nicotine, but to do so is your very personal decision.
Its use cannot be justified.
You can take up some yoga and meditation to help quitting nicotine.
Please feel free to discuss further.
Take care and I wish you good luck.
