Quit smoking mucus

Common Questions and Answers about Quit smoking mucus


Avatar f tn I'm not a smoker but, When my mom quit smoking she did what my grandpa always said to do If you have a sore throat. It sounds nasty but my mom says works! And I know it works for a sore throat. You drink a tablespoon of vinegar and then right after a tablespoon of honey then drink plenty of water. The vinegar kills bacteria in your throat while the honey soothes it. Hope this helps!!
Avatar m tn While kathyjo is right - you should make an appt with your dr to make sure nothing serious is wrong - I can totally relate to what you're saying. I too, quit 4 1/2 months ago and the congestion and mucus is still with me and gathering in my throat just as you describe as well as some wheezing. Feels like my sinuses are draining, in fact, I know they are. You may have a sinus infection. A benedryl as well as a decongestant tablet help quite a bit and dry up the drainage temporarily.

Avatar n tn I am 29, and I quit smoking about a week ago and all these symptoms just started and I am ready to start smoking again because I did not go through any of this while I was smoking. Now that I quit I have coughing spells, 2 minutes after I eat I have a brief moment of shortness of breath, when I wake up I have a terrible headache (this is when I usually light up my first cig), when I go to the bathroom I start wanting a cig so bad (I usually light up while on the toilet).
Avatar f tn There might be a residual cough from the years of smoking. My sister was much like you but did quit...her lungs are so much better and she definitely has lost that smoker's cough.
Avatar f tn I have done this since the beginning of my pregnancy and I put it as my body trying to clean my lungs out because I had quit smoking when I found out I was pregnant. That's when it had started for me.
Avatar n tn Smoking marijuana can hurt your lungs, like smoking regular tobacco cigarettes can. There are other bad effects too. I urge you to try to quit all smoking. Maybe look for smoking-quitting groups in your area where you won't be alone, while working on quitting. It's always hard to quit a habit that helps people "escape" (temporarily) from problems, etc., but it will be worth it, to get your health back!
Avatar m tn I smoked from the age of 16 to the age of 27, quit for a year, picked up at 28 until I was 30, then started again 3 months ago. (I am now 31 1/2) I have now quit for the last week and plan (hope) to never start again. I know that the benefits will be worth it as I've quit for long periods of time before. I have put on about 15 lbs (not related to smoking, more from over eating due to stress).
Avatar f tn Hello. I've quit smoking for 3 weeks now after 32 years of smoking. I am using the patch and my doctor put me on zyban when I saw her sept 5 because I couldn't stop crying. The crying has gotten better I feel terrible. I think I'm obsessed with my breathing to the point where I feel it all the time. My chest feels tight. I feel myself inhaling all the time. I've been to the emergency room twice now in two weeks. Chest films taken. They put me on high does prednisone for.
Avatar f tn I am however, coughing up (apologies) a brown mucus with flecks in it, alot like I've coughed up before when I've quit smoking. However, when I last quit, the mucus was clear with flecks in. I'm in a bit of a state about all this now and have an appointment with my doctor tomorrow but just wondered if anyone else could share similar experiences?
497868 tn?1212226882 a sign that the smoking has not resulted in enough inflammation to cause excessive mucus production and lung clearance of mucus. As the American Lung Association says that by quitting, “You have just committed a death-defying act.” Good luck at sticking with it.

Avatar n tn When I would smoke it through the years my chest would get tight and I always had lots of mucus.I quit 3 months ago and have felt a bit better but still getting alot of mucus and having breathing problems.If I cough it makes a harsh rattly sound.How long does it take for the lungs to recover from this? Am I expecting too much too early? Or will it take alot longer for my lungs to feel better? Also a bit worried that I have the beginnings of chronic bronchitis.I get alot of mucus.
Avatar f tn You are 15 and smoking----- hate to hear that!!!!!!!! I quit last oct 19th--- its such a freeing experience if u can get past the first couple weeks. Nothing good comes frm smoking. Nothing. It's expensive, smoke is terrible for u. It smells up a vehicle. I think it can make u age faster. And there is always the cancer that a lot of folks end up getting eventually. Do your health a favor and quit. Really---- u are so young this is the best time. All the best.
Avatar n tn night I may smoke a 1/2 pack of cigarettes or I may go on vacation and smoke the whole week. I quit social smoking about a year and a 1/2 ago except for one night in Dec. About a month ago I noticed some blood in my phlegm so I went to the Dr. and I was put on an antibiotic and was sent for a chest x-ray, the x-ray was normal. Now I am spitting all the time, my lungs hurt I am spitting so much to examine my phlegm.

Avatar f tn After the 2 months he decided to quit smoking. He has smoked for 60 years or more. One-half to a pack a day, had been down to 3 or 4 a day for a long time. After he quit smoking the cough didn't leave. The doctor did an x-ray, and said it was normal. Then the cough became wet with white string mucus. The doctor said the lungs were trying to clear out and prescribed Spiriva to help. My husband could not take it, because it made him breathless.
Avatar m tn I have a constant headache and the coughing has been consistent. I have recently quit smoking and the cold came on about the same time as i quit. Is this related? Also i found blood in my mucous in my nostril when i blew my nose, There was quite a lot of blood, I also seem to have blocked ears. What should i do?
422924 tn?1331767919 The other possibility, especially given the “feeling that there is something in my throat”, that your symptoms may be secondary to disease of the upper respiratory tract (nose and sinuses) rather than coming from your lungs. Your decision to quit smoking was very wise. Don’t ever resume smoking.
Avatar n tn Ive been diagnosed with COPD and have also had a lonngg history, of lung infections (asthma,countant bouts of bronchitis flowed by pneumonia..I also have pleuresy.) I also smoke. You need to go to a dr. And quit smoking. Look into COPD i'll bet thats your problem.
Avatar m tn Hi there. I'm a 43-year-old female who quit smoking in January after smoking a pack a day (or more) for over 20 years. I also quit cold turkey (but used the patch). The patch certainly took the edge off for me. I stopped using it five weeks into the eight-week program. I also did not get a cough. But, like you, boy did I get lung pain. The weird thing for me was it didn't start immediately after I quit smoking, but a few weeks later.
Avatar f tn I am 35, am a diabetic type 2, have been a smoker (10-12 cig a day) for 10 ys, quit smoking a month back. I quit because I was getting bit of dull pain on my right upper front side of chest below the shoulder blade and chest felt bit heavy. But as I quit, I seem to feel more uncomfortable in the right upper part of chest every now and then. The pain is not terrible though and there are time when I don't feel it at all.
Avatar m tn I thought I would never quit smoking. I also quit smoking cigs which is partly why I have headaches, I hope. I have had headaches for almost a full month now, and do not know why. I hope and pray there is nothing wrong with me because it would ruin me, I just hope I can bounce back somehow. You are not alone man....
