Why Does Vaping Make Me Cough?
Coughing when vaping or using vape products is a common issue that keeps coming up. For most people, it's a serious concern. You can't help but wonder if vaping has adverse side effects.
Fortunately, this is never the case, especially if it's your first time vaping or you're making the switch from cigarette smoking. There are simple explanations as to why you're coughing. In some cases, the solutions are simple, and within reach while in others, it's just a matter of time.

If you cough every time you vape, it could be one of the following reasons. For each reason, there are solutions that you can try out to improve your experience.
One of the effects of smoking is the burning of Cilia. These are the hair-like structures along the respiratory tract which remove dirt and mucus from the airway for irritation-free breathing.
When the cilia start growing back, one of the reactions is coughing because your lungs and respiratory tract become sensitive during the repairs. As a result, you might start coughing when you vape or take deep breathes.
Unfortunately, the reason for coughing might be down to the ingredients of the E-liquid. About 9% of people in the world are allergic to Propylene Glycol, which is one of the main ingredients in e-liquids. As a result, you might frequently cough when you vape.
Going for e-liquids that favour vegetable glycerin over Propylene Glycol can help tame the allergies and ensure a smoother experience.
Another ingredient that can lead to coughing is the nicotine level. Nicotine results in a throat hit. For people looking to quit smoking, a throat hit is a must. But if the nicotine level is too high, it could result in coughing as your throat becomes overwhelmed.

The easiest fix is to tone down on the nicotine level for smoother and cough-free vaping sessions.
The importance of investing in good quality e-liquid can't be emphasized enough. Good quality vape liquids are not only properly brewed but also well-balanced, and the composition is accurate. Low-quality e-liquids, on the other hand, can have high levels of nicotine, and a poor VG to PG ratio. Any of these factors can cause you to cough when vaping.
When buying e-liquid, it's also essential to check the manufacturer's date on the bottle. Old vape liquids are notorious for causing irritations which result in coughing. Always go for the fresh bottles.
Improper vaping technique
This is a common problem among first-time vapers and those transitioning from smoking. There are two main ways to vape.
There’s the mouth to lung hit which means the vapour is held in the mouth before entering the throat and the direct to lung hit which draws the vapour directly into the lungs.
For inexperienced vapours, holding the vapour in your mouth first is highly recommended. Not only does it shower your taste buds with plenty of flavours but it is also kinder on your throat and doesn't overexert your lungs.
The direct to lung method is best reserved for the experienced vapours who are more used to vaping and have mastered this skill.
