"Information regarding choking feeling"

Posted in Quit experiences 07 Nov 2016

Hi , everyone and especially Lia who tried to assist in the problem i posted headed " looking for advice" After speaking with doctor it turned out my problem was an allergy to certain smells especially pollen which is rife at this time of the year in my part of the world. He assured me that was not related to my smoking days but did tell me that your sense of smell does improve when you quit, so Lia your answer to my query was practically right and thankyou. The doctor has given me a scrip for the allergy to use when required. As far as coughing goes the Doctor said it takes time for mucus to wear off and it was the cilla hairs in the lungs that cause the irritation in the cleaning process. Hope these notes help others.
