I coughed for weeks after my last cigg when i vaped. I wanted to blow clouds and it just hurt to do so. Took 3(ish) weeks to rebound from 25 years of chain smoking. Then vaping was painless n fun.

Are you sucking e-liquid (what we vapers typically call "juice") into your mouth, and, if so, are you swallowing it? The problem of juice entering your mouth can happen if the e-liquid is flowing faster than the rate at which it evaporates, so that the chamber gets flooded and gurgles as a result. Often times, sucking less hard can turn out to be the solution that works, but there are a lot of cheap pod systems out there that simply are garbage so there might not be a solution. Either way, if you are constantlly swallowing juice, then you need to stop. Anything more than just mild "spitback" (a thin spray getting mixed into the vapor only just a little bit) going into your mouth can be enough to upset your bowels and/or can tend to make you feel like you want to gag─especially if juice gets boiled repeatedly before it cools back down again so it turns to crud that gunks up over time instead of immediately turning to vapor.

That being said, pod systems are not for me. I can understand the appeal, but IME they don't satisfy me even if they work right, whereas other people swear by them. There is no "one shoe fits all" in vaping, and, a lot of vapers, even among the experienced, seem to underestimate this fact─a whole lot actually. For a lot of us, being able to tailor the vape experience to our own personal preference is more than just preference. Wrong choice of vaping hardware or wrong choice of juice can, and very often does, turn a person back to burning tobacco. Look into rebuildables (start with an RDA) if nothing works, or if something does work, then still consider looking into rebuildables. (Personally, I, not only picked up vaping by jumping head first into RDAs, but at the same time also I managed to switch from smoking 16-17 Marlboro reds per day for more than 20 years to vaping in this manner, which took only 2 minutes to do the switch... permanently.)

If you use lower nicotine you will need to consume more juice. Conversely, using higher nicotine means you consume less juice. For example I use 18mg/ml nicotine, and only vape around 6 ml of juice per day. Know others that vape only 6mg/ml nicotine, and they vape 18+ ml of juice daily.

This all stated, do agree you may want to consider using less nicotine. Diarrhea can be an indicator of nicotine over dose. It isn't good doing that to yourself as diarrhea will dehydrate you further. Dehydrating too much can cause a host of other dangerous ailments.

From my understanding nicotine salts are "smoother" and "more satisfying". Despite that I would suggest trying "freebase" juices. It seems from my observations one is better able to control how much nicotine is used with freebase. I think you might do well at 12mg/ml, or maybe 18mg/ml.

I have tried 24mg/ml and did not care for it. Realized it quickly found me over dosing, too easily. 18mg/ml works out alright for me. Likely I could not get that from salt based juices. Understand I'm no doctor, just some guy on the Internet/Web. Listen to your body, let it guide you and if there's still doubt consult your health care professional/s.

Agree with this as well. If your pod system is not vaporizing juice proper, sucking juice down will get you sick. Good call to try something different.

Hi Friends, going to jump in here as Its a similar situation. I also recently switched to vaping again and the first day was great. 2nd day and 3rd day I get a mild headache. Not swallowing or touching the e liquid. Well I guess sometimes a few drops when refilling might touch my hands. Staying hydrated. Could it be withdrawals? I don't remember experiencing this last time i switched. Only using 3 mg nic so that can't be it.

Yes, it might likely be detoxification along with withdraw. Your body is coming from over 40,000+ chemicals with cigarettes, to around a half dozen with vaping. It is likely your body may think it needs all that crap.

The hardest part of switching to vape 4me was coming off all the chems in cigs. Took a few weeks until i found vaping as satisfying as smoking.
