    I've been lurking for a couple of days and hope to be active in this group if you'll have me!

    I'm Susie, I live in Southeast Michigan. I'm in the process of learning how to vape. My DH, bigblue30, is the vape master of the household. For now, it just makes me COUGH and I'm jealous. We'll be trying some lower nic juices when they arrive to see if that works for me. Need to get off of analogs!

    I have two boys, one in the Navy, and they're both out on their own. I've only ever been on (several) recipe boards, so for me, this is a new experience. I look forward to joining you all on this board....thanks!

    ~~susie.

    Welcome susie! I had the same problem when I started- the coughing was worse than from cigs - I had to lower the nic strength and am now working my way back up. Enjoy the women's room - we all do!

    Thanks, BeeBop! I was a fairly heavy smoker for longer than I care to say :) and it's hard to believe that anything makes me cough, but it does! When DH can sit in a restaurant and vape away and I try it and all I do is cough, it's frustrating! I'm hoping the lower nic helps....crossing my fingers!

    Since I'm used to recipe boards, maybe I can find a "recipe" for vaping, lol!

    Hi Suzie, you are the closest vaporer that I have found so far. I worked in SCS for years with Lake Shore Schools. I live about 45 minutes north of you. Welcome to ECF.

    I have never heard of a Bibblue30. What is it?

    I found that some juices (pre-filled 808 cartos especially) caused me to cough a lot. I use more VG now and I don't have as many issues. PG juices are fine most of the time but when vendors ask about how I like my throat hit, I tell them smooth and I don't have the throat irritation.

    Again Welcome

    PS. There is a Michigan Vaporers Meeting in White Lake on July 31st.

    pm, my DH ( dear husband) is bigblue30 on this board. He does all the e-juice stuff and modding stuff.

    Sounds like you might be in PH? Not sure where White Lake is, thanks for the info! Is it far west side of MI?

    I'm really not using pre-filled, just whatever DH mixes for me :), and I think I need to get some lower nic juices to get started.

    Trying to tell people how great they are and coughing my brains out really doesn't work :)

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Susie..welcome! the coughing will go away, once you find the amount of nic thats right for you and perfect the way you take a drag matters,vaping is different that reg cig's. I had the same problems at the begining...it wasn't the level of nic so much as was the way I was inhaling..takes a few days but it comes natural after that you'll see..its still better than smoking IMO...good luck, don't give up...& welcome again!!;)

    LOL. I thought DH meant designated hitter. ROFL. I am actually 1/2 hour west of PH. I don't find the level of the nic to be an issue with coughing. I have juices of different strengths that make me cough. I find the throat hit (I call it irritation) to be the issue.

    Thanks, everyone, for the welcome!

    So far, I've had zero luck, but am perserving! All the tips are appreciated!

    Designated hitter, lol! That's just abbreviations from the numerous recipe boards I'm on. Need to remember not to use them here or at least explain them!

    ph, not sure what's a 1/3 hour west of PH...guess I need a map! Where is White Lake?

    Thanks, all!

    PM and Susie..welcome to the Women's Room! We have more then enough room for a few more great ladies!
    Susie..I may have a simple soultion for you until you can lower the nic. Don't deep inhale, you absorb nic in the lining of your mouth..not so much your lungs. Just take a shallow drag and hold it in your mouth or release through your nose.
    Try something else besides Tobacco flavor..they are the harshest. If you can get your hands on some Lorann's candy flavoring or even a tiny dab of McCormicks from the grocery store..add it to your mix...in a nice mint, banana, or chocolate. be careful with any grocery store flavor..oil kills attys. If you have any plain P.G/V.G. you can make your own flavors. Visit the DIY section here on ECF.

    You can have Hubby order the unflavored Nic juice to Do it yourself or plain P.G./V.G. for lowering nic.

    here's a guide for abbreviations used on ECF

    Some great reading too!
    Domino has a nice artical on how to get a good draw from your E-cig!

    pm, I did go in and edit that 1/3 hour to a half an hour, but obviously didn't work, I'm a newbie! So...what goes on at these get-togethers?

    MaryKay, I've tried everything recommended on this board :( and so far let's just say I'm not the poster child for e-cigs, although I'm not quitting looking for a resolution!

    DH has a drawer full of e-juices, but many of them are high nic, so I have some lower nics on order. I WILL conquer this.

    Thanks to you all for the gracious welcome :)

    if you find that it is not a technique issue you might want to try 100%vg juice. I recently went through this with my mom. She smoked over 40 years and every hit off of a pv sent her into horrible coughing spasms. Turns out she is sensitive to pg and after we got her on vg she has been fine. good luck and welcome!
