    I think it varies how long it takes for the chemicals to leave your body, but I have 0 experience with the vaping thing.  The nicotine is the addictive  one though, so that you should probably just cut back slowly until you don't use it at all. I am not an expert, and have never used a vape. I just know that that is how the patch works, and that it did for me. Good luck with your quit!

    Cigs, if you are vaping you might want to check into the chemicals that are in the vapour.  When 3 mg nicotine is involved there may be more chemicals in your vape than you realize.  They can contain as much if not more than cigarettes.  Just saying, it may take longer for these to leave your body.  You may be taking the correct amount but that doesn't mean there are not hidden chems in your vape.  I would try talking to a pharmacist for alternate nrt's.  Most of the products are free if you sign a declaration to try and quit smoking.  I'm sure you're paying a fair amount for the vapes so why not try something different that won't cost you as much.  Also give the quit coaches a call at 1-877-455-2233.  They have a lot of information that can help.   All I'm saying is do your homework and check into it.  However well done on 24 days.  Much love, Lucille.

    It is normal to experience withdrawals for a few weeks after quitting as your body adjusts. The vape does contain some metals and chemicals but not as much as a cigarette. To help flush the chemicals out of your system it is helpful to drink plenty of water, have healthy snacks throughout the day and get rest. If you are feeling queasy or maybe nauseous before bed it could be helpful to check-in with your healthcare provider to see if there are other factors involved. Congratulations on your quit!

    Hi CigsRTrash. Sometimes if you get too much nicotine it can make you feel "queezy" so you might want to reduce how much you are putting in your e-juice for your vape. They other thing to consider is that females can feel sick in the morning when they are pregnant. I'm not sure that applies to you are not.
