Other Symptoms?: How do you feel otherwise? Smoke? This could be coming from your sinuses, or your stomach, or even your lungs. How long has this been going on for? Just when you wake up, or throughout the day? If it persists, if you can cleanly catch some of "the stuff" (without mixing it with your saliva) save it and get it examined.
