I am A frequent marijuana smoker (2-3 times per day) and have a saliva based mouth swab drug test coming up soon. How long should I stop smoking for?
Depends: You are asking doctors how to beat a drug test! I would think you may not get much help here. Often, employers drug test hires because the job they are applying for requires attention. There may be a safety concern or a quality control concern. In any case, most doctors, myself included, are not likely to want to help you¨fool¨a drug test, unless total abstinence was your plan going forward! ...Read more

Stop smoking at 11:59pm on 03-04-16, I have a blood, urine and mouth test for nicotine. The test is between 3-14/18-2016 will I pass?
Nicotine stays in urine and saliva for up to 4 days.
A metabolite, cotitine, is detectable in blood for up to 10 days, so you should pass (there's a very slight chance of a positive in blood if done the 14th).
Congratulations on stopping smoking; while you may have done it to pass this test PLEASE don't resume. Smoking is one of the worst things for your health!

Surprisingly (to me): This hairspray taste in the mouth has been reported by others...usually associated with pregnancy!

I've tried to stop smoking a few times in the past but I always got ill. Can I somehow prevent this so I won't have high temp and flu symptoms?
When one is Ill: Smoking to treat an illness is the very definition of crazy. Thinking that when you stop smoking you get ill and need to smoke is your brain lying to you. It is very common for those quitting smoking to get a cough and other signs of illness because their lungs finally can begin to heal and clean out all of the poisons and tars in them. You must get some help for the illnesses if they come. ...Read more

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

Recently quit smoking waking w noc asthma attacks-coughing up clear bubbly phlegm-otherwise young healthy active female. COPD? Cause for alarm?

Now, a decrease in mucus production could be related to the overall improved environment in your lungs now that they don't have to cope with the stress of smoking.
