In brief: Some possibilities

Some people spit because they picked up the habit and haven't stopped it.
In other cases, there is a medical problem such as post-nasal drip mucus from the nose and sinuses. In more worrisome cases, there is a throat problem or lung problem, such as infection or cancer. It may take visits to one's primary care doctor plus an ENT doctor to figure out if there is a medical problem needing attention.
