Wheezing after quitting smoking?

Wheezing after quitting smoking?

How long after?: If you just quit smoking very recently, the wheezing can come from the resultant increase in sputum production that occurs after the bronchial tree's mucociliary elevator starts up again (long story) and as such may stop after several weeks.

I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again had 1 anxiety attack but i can't smoke no more will the anxiety go away ?

Yes: The effects of smoking marijuana generally last just a few hours- the effects will wane hour by hour and within 6-8 hours you will likely be feeling no effect. However, it may feel like a much longer time if you are anxious. If your anxiety persists beyond this it is not directly caused by the marijuana. Taking magnesium glycinate or citrate & drinking tulsi tea should help calm you. See comment:. ...Read more

Im smoking cigarette so much.Daily 20+ ciggarette.I was starting before 2year ago.How to leave smoking.

Cold turkey.: As far as quitting without any nicotine replacement, the cold turkey method is great. But plan it ahead of time. Pick a quit date in advance, maybe a meaningful date like a birthday or holiday, and gather people who are aware of your attempt that you can call upon for moral support if you start to falter. Good luck!! ...Read more

Still coughing 2 weeks after sinus infection/bronchitis. Trying to quit smoking. Worried/scared of copd?

Silver linings: Sometimes it takes feeling ill to help people really get serious about quitting. If so, it's doing you a favor. 34 is not too old to have the changes you make be very significant - you should be able to avoid COPD (a good choice!) Worry may not be needed and once it motivates you - send it packing! Two weeks is still w/in normal range for healing, but see your Dr. if it goes on. Get a Star! ...Read more

Quit smoking after 26 yrs (1/2 pack a day) never had smokers cough not coughing now... Is this bad? Should i be coughing if my lungs are clearing?

Congratulations: And stop worrying. You did a very good thing. Just as the damage was silent, the modest healing in your large airway structure will also be silent. Your lungs won't "clean themselves" by coughing, though especially if you also start exercising, the pulmonary lymph is likely to carry some of the blackness away. The whole team here is very happy for you. ...Read more

Started a non smoking cessation and decided to go on vapour ecigarrettes. Will my shortness of breath from smoking stop and chest tightness?

Started a non smoking cessation and decided to go on vapour ecigarrettes. Will my shortness of breath from smoking stop and chest tightness?

Everyone is: different but setting target date to stop and then stopping completely on that day can be effective. Learning some self-hypnosis can support this plan of action. Chewing gum or eating mints is useful, especially at high risk times like coffee breaks. Not smoking can make things better but you need to see doctor. Better off w/out e-cigs.
