    Unhappy Vaping hurting my throat?

    Hi all,

    I'm on my third day of vaping, but I'm having a bit of an issue. It's kind of like vaping is harsher on my throat than smoking was. I find myself coughing and the back of my throat feels dry and weird. I'm using the Volt with Cowboy 12mg juice. I used to smoke a PAD of marb lights. I'm not sure if this is some kind of psychosomatic thing due to giving up cigarettes or if this is the mythical "throat hit" that I heard so much about. If it is, I don't think I like it. Or maybe it's due to the vapors drying out my throat/lungs? Maybe I'm just nuts!

    Any suggestions of how to fix this? Should I try a different juice? Do you think this is a side effect of quitting smoking and not the vaping at all?

    Everyone is different but I noticed I had this problem when I was vaping a higher vg mix. I’ve started using a higher pg mix now and the problem has gone away. I also drink a lot more water now which helps too. Like I said though everyone is different.

    Well, I'm thinking of getting some of the Vapor Room juices since they have the $10 weekly 30mL bottles and $5 weekenders. I think I'm going to try a 75pg/25vg mix and see if that helps. I have no idea what the Smokeless Image ones consist of, so maybe a juice change is the answer.

    When I first started vaping I got a sore throat a lot. It turned out in my case to be dehydration. Vaping tends to dry you out so make sure you drink plenty of water.

    Vaping is VERY drying ... up your water intake ... a LOT!

    Dark Colored flavors dry me out. Chocolate/coffee types. Using lighter fruit flavors fixed it for me. (though i did still have an issue with Banana only from my vendor of choice.)

    I think this makes sense. I did wake up in the middle of the night yesterday with the worst cotton mouth ever. I'll take your advice and make sure to stay hydrated!

    Sorry I hate to reply to myself, but I was going to order e-liquid and I remembered seeing a thread last night that was all coupon codes and sales and now I can't find it. I've tried searching and looking around, but with little success. Anybody know the thread I'm talking about? It was really long, but filled with great deals!

    Definitely a good call. I had to up my water intake alot when I started but everything got better after a few days.
