    I found the vapor tickled my throat in a way unlike normal smoke. I lightly inhaled for the first couple days, and got used to it, and it doesn't tickle anymore. Could have too much nicotine?

    Hi ALsmom! What strength nic/flavors is in your carts ? Different flavors/ nic strengths have different amounts of throat hit and vapor.
    ALso are you using a manual, or auto or a passthrough manual or auto?
    And how would you describe your inhail? do you hold it for a second or 2 in your mouth before inhailing and is it slow and long inhail?

    You may want to cut your inhales down a bit. dont take scuh big drags. regardless of what analogs you used to smoke. it will always take some getting used to.

    0mg nicotine has almost no throat hit.
    36mg nicotine is way more powerful than typical analog.

    What is your nicotine number?

    I mostly use 12mg to 24mg.

    I am using 18, 24 & 36, maybe too strong? and I try and hold it in my mouth but it still makes me cough! I think I overestimated how much nicotine I needed. I did smoke 2 packs a day, but many of those just sat in the ashtray! I lost my bottle of juice, I think it was a lower strength. I will find it and try it, and also order some low nic ones

    thank you ALL for the tips, I am using a manual for the most part, and I do have a USB passthru which is much more mild on my laptop, much stronger on my son's laptop, but all of them make me cough. I am hangin in there and smoke many less analogs. Will star to play with different carts, strengths, etc i want this to work. I am just jealous of those that can vape all day, maybe I should not be, LOL

    There is also a possibility that you have an intolerance for PG, which is what I believe comes in all of the VK/KR808D-1 etc. cartomizers.

    VG liquid would be an alternative... but that would mean rinsing the PG out of your carto and refilling with a VG based liquid.

    I personally have a very mild intolerance for PG... and use VG liquid almost exclusively (there are exceptions!)
