Are you new to vaping and find that you cough more than you did when smoking cigarettes?
There are a few reasons for this, and a few possible solutions.
But let’s start with the reasons:
The obvious one is sensitivity to PG, there are a small group of vapers that have sensitivity to PG. The reactions can be different, but it’s usually via the skin – with canker sores and sometimes-red itchy skin, but coughing could be a sign.
Your e-cig may be too powerful for you, and is producing too much vapour for you.
Your mouth is dehydrated.
Possible solutions to this problem:
Have a drink when you are vaping – hot or cold, it doesn’t matter, but vaping can dry your mouth out, so up the fluids.
Persevere – people have mentioned that this happened to them at the start, but after a week or so it went.
Reduce the amount of PG in your mix, and increase the amount of VG, as this gives a smoother vape.
Try an e-cig with a less powerful battery.
French inhale- (this is a new one to me) – this is where you draw into your mouth, and then inhale via your nose- letting your nose take the dryness maybe??
Lower the strength of nicotine – you may have been a hard-core heavy smoker, but vaping is different, so maybe this is worth a try?
And finally, don’t vape the way you would smoke, take lighter draws, with slightly smaller inhales.
