    Hi Rocky1947. If I was you I would go and see a doctor. It may be that you have a chest infection or worse, you have bronchitis. You will need to be treated. I smoked for 40 odd years and was not well with phlegm and coughing for a couple of weeks after quitting but do not have anything now. It has been nearly 4 months for me since giving up. See your doctor!

    I agree with Puffer; go see a Doctor and get a chest xray, check for bronchitis and lung capacity. I am 36 days smoke free and have been smoking for over 50 years and my persistent cough went away in 2 weeks. Good luck and let us know how the tests go !
