The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
Cough up phlegm from smoking marijuana? Am i already getting a smokers cough? I've been smoking mj past 3 months daily. Could this cause this?
Why does my upper chest or bronchs vibrate when exhaling hard? There's no phlegm/mucus/cough. Quit smoking pot recently but never smoked cigs. Normal?
Impossible to say: You need a physical examination of your chest, and may need additional tests, such as a chest x-ray, to really give an answer. Often, some obstruction in the upper airway, like a polyp or an aspirated foreign body, can cause such sounds, but usually there will be cough, sputum, mucus etc. You need to be examined if it is bothering or worrying you. ...Read more
not a problem: Congratulations for quitting - this a great thing you have done for your health. Not sure how much you smoked, or how long, but quitting does help any changes in your upper airway to recover fully.

Diagnosed preasthmatic because I cough too much at times. Using inhaler stops it, but it can start again. coughs triggered by cold air, smoke, perfume?
Sounds about right: Not sure what the question is. There is a cough-variant asthma and it sounds like you have that and that it is triggered by cold air, smoke and perfume. If you are using the inhaler more than once a week to stop the coughing fits then you should see an allergy/asthma specialist for further evaluation and treatment. ...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
I quit smoking marijuana ive been a heavy user but now i stopped cold turkey and i cough out phlegm with brown specks and left lung hurts sometimes?
See a doctor: The symptoms might be caused by irritation of your airways or lung tissue, but might also represent an infection of the airways (bronchitis) or lungs (pneumonia).

This may help avoid the need for meds ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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. However, the fear would be that emphysema has already set in, and this wheeze would be permanent, then. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I quit smoking after 30yrs 3 months ago since then asthma and respiratory problems have been continuous could this be becsuse i stopped smoking?
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

Stopped smoking over 2 weeks ago..And im coughing worse like im still smoking and coughing up phlem, I've had flu like symptoms and body aches?
Congrats!: People stopping smoking will frequently experience a period where they are coughing soot and tar. If you look at your sputum, you will see very small curls of these substances. When people smoke, the cells which push out inhaled junk with little finger-like "cilia, " become denuded. After quiting, they grow back and bring up what has gone into your lungs. The flu like sx may be nicotine withdrawal. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
