[warning: gross]

So, all the background you need: I'm not and never have been a nicotine user, and I'm allergic to guafinesin, the only over the counter throat expectorant.

Every time I get a cold, flu, or sinus issue, I have to pick my medicines carefully, and I can't use any with the active ingredient from Mucinex. Therefore, I just have to deal with the throat crud.

Today, I decided to visit a local smokeshop, and get a cheap vape and some nicotine free menthol juice. I had a simple hypothesis: This could have the effect of Halls or Vicks, but not suck nearly as bad as that awful chest rub, the patches, or cough drops (i hate all three).

While I was totally right, and the vape soothes my throat (it was so inflamed I was struggling to breathe), it did something else unexpected: It acted as an expectorant. One hit, and I effortlessly coughed all that stubborn crap out.

It's proven repeatable all day. Every time I start to get that gross feeling, I take a hit and it clears out.

I suspect the glycerin is responsible, because the aforementioned menthol products have never helped me with this before.
