HI Sara,

Welcome to the forum.   Quitting smoking is the number one thing you can do to improve your health.  I hope you do make that decision to quit.  Please contact your doctor and discuss your cough though.  We need a plan to succeed.   Check out the articles below.

Actually it is helpful if you quit! Are you worried about getting it mixed up with the cough? I would still quit, no matter what. Then you tell everyone you quit during the pandemic! If you can do that.....you will be stronger in everything!

Best wishes!

Actually it's safer for you because of COVID. You need your lungs to be on their A game and you can't if you still smoke. So set a date and take the plunge, we will support you through it xx

Hi Sarah,

I also smoked for 39 years and I quit 8 days ago. I have had a smokers cough for most of my adult life. For me, I have had little bouts of it getting worse since I quit but many more moments of it getting better. I think it's a part of the process of cleaning out your lungs. I welcome the little "ahems" knowing that my lungs are on their way to better days. It may get worse before it gets better and I keep reminding myself that eventually it will get better.
