Hello everyone. New guy here.
Just thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Justin and I'm located in Texas. I recently got into vaping and made quite an investment after some research. My reasons are strictly to quit smoking cigarettes. I'm not interested in huge clouds, going up, etc. I bought a Smok Majesty mod and run it at 30Watts. I started 5 days ago and haven't had a cigarette since. But I come here with a question. My dad said, and the guy at the vape shop said, that coughing is normal for your first 2 weeks to 3 months of vaping. How long will it take to get over the cough? I'm only really coughing when I first start up a vape session then ease into it and stop coughing. But it's a problem when I'm at work and need a couple of puffs on my break. 

Happy vaping, and thanks in advance for responses.

RE: Hello everyone. New guy here.
Hey Justin, welcome.

We're all differnt, for me it was just a few weeks, though it will largely depend on your nicotine level, wattage power and pg ratio. Tell us more about your setup and juice Smile

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: Hello everyone. New guy here.
Hi Justin. Welcome to TVF Congrats on your 5 days there will be more to come.
Coughing is a temporary side effect from vaping for many people. [gently* has given the likely reasons above.] Don't let it put you off

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..

RE: Hello everyone. New guy here.
Hi Justin - welcome to the forum. I coughed for about a month and then changed to a lower PG content - 50%. After that I was fine.
PG can irritate the throat - depending on how you vape and the gear you use will let you reduce the PG - if it is factory coils however 50% PG is really as low as you can go. Hang in there - we all coughed at the beginning.

RE: Hello everyone. New guy here.
Hi welcome to the forum.

Coughing can be / is normal at the beginning, but watch out for allergic reactions from (PG/VG/Flavours).

I'm glad that you started vaping, that means another life is safer on this planet.

RE: Hello everyone. New guy here.
Thanks for the warm welcome. Some background: I started smoking at age 11 and am now 27 and decided to quit. I was going through a carton of cigarettes a week, sometimes more. So, really, I was spending over $200/month on cigarettes and out of breath all the time, etc. Hot pockets already taste like gourmet meals compared to before vaping.

My set up? It's nothing fancy and I don't know the names of the parts or anything but it gets the job done. It's a Smok Majesty vape with the small tank and I use the coils rated for 40-60 watts but only run it at 30. It does the job for me and kills all cravings for cigarettes.
