Increase in phglem/mucus production since quitting?

Hi there, I quit smoking 2 and 1/2 months ago and I seem to be experiencing quite abit of phglem. I don't have the hacking cough that I have heard otherw talk about, but my throat feels congested and the mucus that I bring up is clear (sorry for the graphic description...).
Has anyone else experienced the same? If so, I would like to know how long it will take before this stops. Thank you.

Your lungs are cleaning themselves out. Quite normal and it will go away. Drink plenlty of water it helps

Well your lungs are trying to repair themselves so the by product of that is mucus coming out of your lungs. It can take up to a year to stop the mucus production.
That said their is another reason why you can produce mucus, as that is down to a lung infection or lung damage. It all depends on the colour and frequency of the production.
I would recommend you visit your doctor to get this checked out and get the once over.
But well done for quitting

normal gunk frow lower lungs coming up , do deep breathing, the most important part is blow all air out of lungs like blowing up a balloon, to open the air sacs. and drinks lots of water, and be happy you no longer smoke.

I quit for 14 months in 89 and due to stress started back like a dummy. I now have COPD so don't stop quitting, keep on keeping on. I am about to try again. I will be praying for you all. BJ
