Thinking that there is no solution to you your sleeping problem? Do not worry you can try the following things to have a more peaceful night:

 

  • To choose an e-liquid that has a lower nicotine strength, or  use a nicotine-free e-liquid before you go to bed, or make your own vape juice
  • Avoid using any electronics before you go to bed
  • Avoid drinking alcohol or caffeinated drinks before going to bed
  • Stay hydrated
  • Set yourself up a sleeping routine, this will help your body get in a good routine and regulate itself.

Most e-liquids contain PG, this is a chemical that can cause dehydration or irritation in your throat. This can then lead to snoring.
