Story

I have used this technique many times especially when a cough awakens me in the night and it works. However, I have not had the opportunity to try it out on a full fledge bronchial cough.

What do you think?

I've had a cough for 3 weeks. I love the idea that it could be so easy - just tried and it worked. I also swallowed hard while doing it. YAY
