Hello Mrs Clive! I too found that vaping made me cough my guts up when I first started, though I was on 12mg at first, quickly went to 6mg. Now in 3mg, occasionally 0mg. It will ease up a bit once you get used to it. I think, in part, it's down to density of the vapour (amongst other factors) as cigarette smoke is nowhere near as dense as vapour. Stick with it and you'll find it gets better in no time at all. I may not be the most experienced chap on here, but @cliveh2 has helped me out a lot in the past, so I thought I'd share my 2 penneth with you. Enjoy your time here...I certainly do!
