    I have been trying to make the switch for a year this month. I have an entire cabinet FULL of various vaping supplies and just can't seem to find something that doesn't make me cough the instant I inhale. Its this horrible tickle chocking feeling like when you accidentally inhale ammonia or something. Has anyone else had this problem? How do you get around it?

    are you vaping pg/vg blends? are your blends more PG than vg? You could be allerigic to pg. Also, your nicotine level may be way too high.

    Could be the quality of the juice you're vaping. As a noob I just vaped what my ecig supplier carried, which was definitely lower end, and I coughed till my throat was sore. Trying juices from different vendors cleared that up and now I know what works for me.

    Maybe trying some samplers from a few different companies will help you out.

    Try a supplier that has 100% VG. Johnson Creek and Ahlusions come to mind. Some people are allergic to PG and others are just sensitive to it.

    I will look for some vg liquid. I stayed away from it because everyone says it clogs everything.

    I would try a variety--all vg, all pg, unflavored & different vendors. Nicotine & PG can both cause your issue. It's also possible that you're getting dry hits & that will definitely feel like breathing ammonia. I accidentally cranked my vv too high & was getting dry hits. Coughing, gasping, eyes watering & afraid to try it again until I figured out the issue.

    How do you know the difference between a dry hit and a regular hit? Like how would I know if that is my problem is what I am asking.

    Regular hits are usually warm and smooth with good flavor and good vapor. Dry hits tend to be hot, burnt tasting with little or no vapor. Basically means you're inhaling the essence of burnt wicking material. No pleasant at all. If this is the case, you may want to check your juice delivery system to see if it is clogged or set up wrong.
