Can anyone tell me -

I am now on day 110 and everyone says about the cough that you get when you give up smoking, the cough is supposed to clear all the tar and gunk that we have put in our bodies from smoking all those cigarettes over the years. I haven't had a sniff of a cough yet so will all the tar and gunk stay on my lungs? Or does your body absorb it and clean it out another way? I was a very heavy smoker about 30 a day for about 36yrs. Or does it all just stay in your lungs?

Any ideas anyone?:confused::confused:

I never had the gunk clearing cough either, I wouldn't worry.

Same with me Bev. Truth to be told, I never really had problematic smoking-related cough during my 14-year smoking "career".
