Greetings, O Vaporous Friends,
I am now closing on one month (since Nov. 18th) without tobacco. This is a big deal to me, as I've been a smoker – sometimes more, sometimes less, but rarely "never" – since 1968, when I was just 11 years old. [Yes, if you do the math, I am now 55.] The only other time I spent long without tobacco was when I FIRST discovered vapor, and lasted until my final battery and passthrough died horrible deaths. Now that I am using an OMG VV, a birthday gift from the Love of My Life ( LOML, since we all seem to like acronyms so much), I am utterly content without tobacco, and much healthier for it.
...recently, my dear LOML has gently, gently complained that I have bad breath.
Granted, it's nowhere near as bad as tobacco breath, which – if one's Significant Other is not a smoker – is truly bad, as we all know. "Like licking an ashtray," said my ex-wife, and for once I agree with that Formerly Important Person (FIP). Regardless of toothpaste, mouthwash, breath mints, and gum, there's little that can completely remove the acrid taste of smoke from one's mouth.
Vapor, I supposed, would give me much better breath. And it has, for the most part. But now, as I am enjoying the heck out of this VV, I wonder if the vapor is doing something similar? Or is it something altogether unrelated? The jury is out on this.
So I thought I would ask the Vapor4Life community at large – or at least those who read this particular subsection of the Forum – if anyone else has had a similar experience? Has your partner complained of bad breath due to vapor use?
I will point out that my only juice flavors right now are (1) Traditional Tobacco Nobacco and (2) New Menthol Nobacco. So perhaps, if these flavors are the issue, I should buy and use other flavors? I don't recall any complaints previously, when I was using Cinnimon Roll and other non-tobacco flavors. Could this be the issue?
Speak! Has anyone experienced any complaints from others about bad breath which they then traced to vaping? If so, what did you do about it? Or am I barking up the wrong tree? [Dental issues aren't the problem, and I am not talking about garlic or onion smells – this is different, says the LOML.]
Thanks in advance!
