Many smokers switch to vaping to help them quit smoking, but if you’re coughing after taking up vaping you might be worried you’ve made a mistake in switching. Vapers cough is an irritating and tickly cough that tends to happen when you first start vaping. Initial side effects like this should subside as your body adjusts to your new hobby. However, if you’ve been vaping for a while and you’re still coughing, there may be other factors causing your cough.
Faulty or Damaged Gear
Broken or damaged vape mods, atomisers, and gear can impact the quality of your vapour. If the parts are replaceable, it might be worth getting new, fresh parts to improve your vapour. Also check the specs of your e-cigarette to ensure you’ve installed everything correctly and are using your device properly.
Poor or Counterfeit E-liquid
E-liquids manufactured overseas don’t always adhere to the same standards as e-liquids produced in the UK. Check where your e-liquids are made before using them and always buy them from reputable sources.
There are two ways to vape: Direct-to-Lung (DTL) and Mouth-to-Lung (MTL). DTL vaping, or sub-ohm vaping, pushes vapour deep into your lungs for an intense hit of vapour. This type of vaping is more common in larger, powerful vapourizers.
MTL vaping is similar to smoking a cigarette. You draw vapour into your mouth where it is then taken in by your lungs. If you’re coughing a lot and have been DTL vaping, switch to a device like a vape pen and use e-liquid designed for MTL vaping.
Nic salts and e-liquids with a higher nicotine strength give a deeper throat hit that can irritate your respiratory system. Most ex-smokers tend to go with the highest nicotine strength possible to curb their cravings, but if your e-liquid is making you cough, try reducing your nicotine strength.
