Salutations FarScaper, Agreed, having a glass of water handy always used to be a good idea! Then there are alternative complements as once imagined by StinkMeaner below: *Steam Inhaler* Anyone Use One? Maybe With Vaporizing.By the way... There happened to be some more related discussions taking place over there lately: ABV section: "HELP ME stop coughing so much" This particular mention of ultrasonic mist generators for use with vaporizers probably was the initial sparkle for me, i believe. Now please lets focus on the amounts... For example, in a glass of water the moisture comes from a relatively dense liquid. In comparison a nebulizer as illustrated above delivers moisture instantly to the whole respiratory tract under the form of cold water droplets suspended in mid-air (water mist or fog), helping to prevent the dryness which vaporization may cause as a side-effect. Here's the most non-invasive manner to explore the benefits of fog conditioning: (YouTube - Mist maker by CA5H) It manages with the cause instead of the symptom. Though in consequence of a possibly steeper learning curve i'd be more in favour of those ready to argue that the secret actually resides in better control of their mixing ratio: It's no fancy technology but i'm satisfied with the performance i've been able to observe while playing with it. Now that i've got a mist generator that's all i need, after all: HerbalAire H2.1: Fog Mixing Parts (2012-Nov-15) Not as elegant as glass but a lot more convenient for the budget - and it's on some shelves, nearby! Fog conditioning implemented in a similar way should delay (if not prevent) dryness symptoms, for all i can tell so far. With such a resource around i'm quite pleased to find that my session's quality no longer depends on availability of something to drink since there's virtually no need for it in the 1st place... But it's one thing to tell the good news, it's quite another to share how it's made so good i guess!
