help or suggestions??

okay so i've quit smoking for almost two months. one thing that is really bothering me is my lungs. i can imagine that my lungs are pretty messed up after having 20 years worth of gunk put into them. but.. i can't cough anything up. i have no cough at all, and every morning when i wake up my lungs feel like i smoked two packs of smokes the night before. my mouth tastes like tar! it's unnerving. it feels like all that gunk is STUCK in there and wont come out! is there anything anyone can suggest to help loosen it up? a herb or something? i am getting so sickened by this morning feeling. it's one of the reasons why i quit in the first place! when does my body start to cleanse itself?

Re: help or suggestions??

I can't tell you that. I smoked for almost 40 years and I stopped 14 months ago. I never got that clearing cough that some people get. Have you tried an expectorant? Have you had your teeth cleaned lately. The tar gets on the teeth and that could give you the taste. Hope this helps. Godbless
