I stopped smoking about 2weeks ago and 3 days ago I started coughing non stop.?

Cigarette smoking destroys tiny hair-like projections lining the respiratory tract called cilia. When you quit smoking, the cilia need to repair and regenerate themselves.

I stoped smoking pot a week ago I was heavy user for years now been having stomach trouble how long will it last help?

Unfortunately: there is not a lot of medical information out there (yet) about withdrawal from heavy cannabis use (in fact the debate still rages as to whether pot is or is not addictive. From information already known the effects of withdrawal should be somewhat "eased" by the GRADUAL fat level reduction mitgating "cold turkey" to some extent.

I quit smoking 8 months ago after 35 plus years and got asthma after quit i have been vaping since not much could vaping cause asthma?

I am 51.5 years. Started using alesse 3 months ago. How will I know when my period has stopped?

Hard to know: I am assuming that your are asking if you will know when you are in menopause once you start Alesse. It will be very hard to tell because the Alesse temporarily alters your hormones. The only way to know will be to stop that pill and then see what happens ...Read more

I stopped taking my welbutrin about 3 months ago, but now finals are next week and i've already had 2 panics...What should I do?

See a doctor: Welbutrin is a treatment for depression, but doesn't do anything for anxious symptoms like panic attacks. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris) like Celexa and zoloft (sertraline) are effective for panic disorder and generalized anxiety, but they take 2-3 works to begin working, and 4-6 weeks for full effectiveness. ...Read more

I was a very heavy smoker. I stopped smoking nearly 10 years ago. Will my lungs have recovered to what they were like before i started smoking?

I was a very heavy smoker. I stopped smoking nearly 10 years ago. Will my lungs have recovered to what they were like before i started smoking?

Smoking: Congrats on sustained cessation of smoking! it is probably one of the most difficult addictions to stop. The amount of "recovery" of lung function depends on several factors, such as number of years of smoking, number of packs per day, amount of emphysema present, other toxins to the lungs (ie. Occupation exposures), and other health issues such as heart disease which is common in smokers. ...Read more

I was a heavy smoker (thc) and stopped 3 weeks ago. I've a hf test coming up and have shaved my head every week. What are my chances if i stop shaving?

Your chances?: I'm not sure what type of chances you're wondering about, but thc will be in your hair follicles for at least 90 days. Shaving your head will not affect that. It may also be detectable in your urine as well, since you describe yourself as "a heavy smoker.". ...Read more
