Bad breathing

it takes a while to clear the junk out. drink lots of water. do breathing exercises. give it some time to repair. look how long it to you to get where you are. I've quit for a dozen years after forty years of smoking. been on oxygen that whole time. do your self a favor and stay on your breathing path. congratulations!

Congratulations , well done. Your lungs are now learning to function without poisons. They will get there and you will feel much better soon. I guess your lungs ( and other organs) have been under the influence for a long time? So give them time to readjust. Try breathing exercise and walks to speed things up a little . Good quit support site on here also .
