My suggestion would be to stop using quick lights, I know they are easy and "quick" but I have a scratchy throat nearly every time I use them.
I've been getting the same result with Nak, AF, and SB, with different heat management techniques. I only use QLs with my pumpkin because I'm usually not in a place with a coil burner when I use it. I use CocoNaras normally.

I'll make sure to try drinking something when I get home, but my hose is not washable.
