How to not cough too hard?

Strength...: The strength of your cough is difficult to control since coughing is a reflex. But, once the etiology of your cough is diagnosed by your doctor, your cough can be treated so that the cough will be less. If you smoke, your doctor can help you to quit which will decrease airway i flammation and decrease your cough.
