    I am in my late 20's and have smoked and started smoking when I turned 19. I quit 2 weeks ago (cold turkey) and even resisted it when I went out drinking in a social crowd over the weekend. I started jogging 3 times a week to help me get through this and I must say I actually feel better. But, my thorat itches and every morning I wake up I have this nasty taste in my mouth and shit in my throat I have to spit out. What is that? Is this normal? When will this go away?

    Thanks...

    very common, the more you smoke the harsher this reaction is, i was a light smoker quit and went through it for about two weeks

    my brother was a heavy smoker (multiple packs a day) and his was intense.

    congradulations btw.

    I quit smoking for a month and 11 days now, and I still feel a bit of crap come out my throat every morning, but it's not harsh any longer. I jog quite often, and sometimes during the middle of jogging I feel this nasty sand paper, almost pepper feeling in my lungs, but that was about 2 weeks ago, now they feel stronger, and I don't have that nasty feeling any longer! :big grin:

    So keep sticking it man, you'll feel better, and trust me, once in a while you will feel like you want a smoke, then about 15 minutes after you think to yourself that smoking is stupid and you are so glad you didn't smoke.

    I just hit the 3 month mark of quitting and stuff is coming up worse now than when I quit, so expect a lot of weird things to happen, just keep reminding yourself it's for the best. The running is a good idea, what I did when I started to quit was everytime I craved a cigarette I'd go for a run, or do some yoga, or anything active to get my endorphins going and then I found the cravings went away.
    I also found that a healthy diet, and drinking Yerba Mate to be helpful to create balance.
    I also found that in the first while I got sick a lot. Again this is common, so don't get discouraged, your body is trying to get all the crap out of it!!!

    Maybe chronic bronchitis or something? They say the pollen levels are some of the highest ever, at least here on the East Coast, that could have something to do with it.

    Taken from some website:

    regenerate, allowing your body to clean your lungs and reduce
    infection."
