I just quit smoking 2 days ago and my lungs hurt is that normal? My lungs hurt on and off theoughout the day

I just quit smoking 2 days ago and my lungs hurt is that normal? My lungs hurt on and off theoughout the day

Yes: Cigarette smoke stops the hair cells lining your bronchial passages from working, and when you stop smoking they begin to work again and move up all the mucus and crud in the mucus that smoking has put there. This can increase cough and production of dark phlegm but is a sign your lungs are starting to heal. It lasts for several weeks, but eventually improves. Congrats on quitting. Stay quit! ...Read more
