Re: coughing up black stuff

angelofsin*****the only time i've had that happen was when i quit smoking the first time. i had a bad case of bronchitis and after 3 months of not smoking my cough was still horrendous. one night in the middle of the night i started choking and when the blob came up i went into the bathroom and put it in the sink. in the dark i knew something ws wrong because you could see it (soryy for being so vivid) it was black as tar. after that i never coughed again and when i told my dr. he said congratulations you have finally cleared your lungs out. it was all the garbage under the Cilia i think they are called that lay down with a smoker and whe you quit stand up again and all the garbage that's laid under them comes out.
