Congratulations on quitting! I'm on my 6th day and still coughing up junk and wheezing.
I DID raise the head of my bed about 2" and I don't cough during the night anymore.
I am going through tests right now to see what I have. I always get bronchitis after a cold, so that is probably the cause.
DO NOT GO BACK TO SMOKING! It will do nothing to your body, except relieve a "mind" craving.
