Smoking Cessation Message Board

I quit smoking just over 2 weeks ago. About the third day, I started coughing up thick phlegm 8 -10 times a day with brown and tan flecks in in it. The phlegm itself is a milky color. The amount has subsided, but it does still continue, now with mostly tan flecks.

Has anyone else experienced this? If so, do you know what the cause is?

Thanks,
Tom
Hi...

I too think it's just your lungs clearing out the garbage that was left in there, which would mean it's a good thing, I think. If it doesn't go away, then by all means, see your Dr. I didn't cough up anything, or ever cough AFTER I quit, but, I used to cough up that same brown thick phlegm WHILE I was smoking. I quit 2 and 1/2 years ago, and I wish the very best of luck to all of you new quitters!!! :) Stick with it...it is SO worth it!!

Love,
Deda
I have a friend who smoked cigarettes often, marijuana multiple times a day, and a few other things too for years. This guy still hocks up some awful black/brown phlegmballs and he stopped smoking over half a year ago. He had this issue while he was smoking, too.
