Changing nic content % tired?

So, I decided to change from 1.8% reds to 1.2%. The higher of the 2 was just too much after a while (months). I was an ex smoker so I went with what worked. Now, after trying to cut in a bit, going back and forth, I feel like I'm dragging big time, plus a little emotional. Anyone else have this? I couldn't get any answers elsewhere, hoping you guys could help me out. Thanks!

    Hey @neingesicht, I was really gradual in reducing my nicotine percentage and found that the best way to step down without experiencing mood swings or withdrawal symptoms. 

    I started out with 2.4% and stepped down through all the levels until I got to 0.3% - 0.6%. I did this over 5 years. Ultimately I'll get to 0%.

    Don't rush it and do it gradually and you wont have any negative experiences. Cheers..

    Awesome, thanks! I have made it down to 1.2. Actually, I have to ask and you might know, I have had burning skin (I've hydrated), among other things and it just hasn't gone away with the 1.2%. Is there something I should be looking for? I don't remember having this problem when I used to use V2 but even right now my mouth feels numbish and my tongue is burning. This is with V2 red cartridges.

    Hi @neingesicht
    Good luck on the nicotine journey... many of us have been there. It depends on each vaper but it does take time to drop down. Glad to read you've made it down to 1.2%! I know some folks get blanks and mix 2 different nicotine strengths/eliquids to help bridge the transition. Perhaps this will help for your next drop. 

    If you are having those physical symptoms, we would recommend immediately stop vaping and see a licensed physician. You may be allergic to something in the eliquid or your body may oddly be reacting to your change in nicotine intake. Please keep us posted how you are feeling and how things go. Your health and safety is our #1 priority.
