When you cut down or quit smoking, it is normal to get a cough. Our bodies are a wonderful thing. Our lungs are continually trying to heal even when you are smoking full-time. So when you go without a few the tar build up begins to come loose from the walss of your lungs and that's what causes you to cough. When you quit entirely, it can take a few weeks to quit coughing up old damaged lung tissue and tar build up. I quit in May of this year and I have to say my breathing has never been better. I love the smell of smoke when my daughters are smoking, but have no desire to smoke another cigarette again. Because I never realized just how little fresh air I was actually getting into my body as a smoker. Good Luck! It's hard to quit but it is so worth it.

Probably right after you get all the stuff out of your lungs that has been building up. Especially if you are a heavier smoker.

How many are you down too? I give you credit. One thing that was big for me was, NO GUILT. If you decide to smoke a cigarette, smoke it and enjoy it. Every one you don't smoke gives your lungs a chance. Good Luck

Yes and it goes away after a few weeks to a month depending on how long you smoked for. It will go away tour body is just getting rid of the garbage. Your breathing will improve taste and smell also come back. I quit last year and I hacker up nasty crap for three weeks but then it stopped

although it's not common - some people find that they seem to cough more than normal soon after they stop smoking and the cough is usually temporary and may actually be a sign that your body is healing.
