Sometimes, people who are new to e-cigarettes go into a nasty coughing fit when they inhale called Vapor’s Cough, which turns them off from it altogether. If you’re one of those people, we’ll tell you how you can stop coughing and start vaping.
Why do people cough when vaping but not smoking?
In short, tobacco contains ingredients that are designed to stop smokers from coughing when they light up, while on the other hand, e-cigarettes usually don’t contain those anesthetic ingredients.
Three ways to help stop coughing when you’re vaping
- Experiment with different inhaling techniques –Even if you directly inhale into your lungs while smoking a regular cigarette, we suggest you try using a mouth-to-lung technique when using an e-cigarette. You’re less likely to cough that way.
- Try changing the PG/VG ratio –Most e-cigarettes contain PG (propylene glycol) and VG (vegetable glycerine). If you keep coughing, we recommend you switch to a lower percentage of PG and a higher percentage of VG. We can help you at Ecigs International, a vape shop in Horsham, PA, and the surrounding areas.
- Drink more water –Last but not least, try drinking more water. Sometimes, PG and VG can lead to minor dehydration and more coughing. We believe it’s a good idea to down a glass of ice cold water every once in a while.
