Coughing up black/grey stuff?
Like this post? Yes | No    

My girlfriend is a heavy smoker of marijuana. She probably smoked between 3-5 times daily, sometimes more sometimes less depending on what's going on. Recently for new years she decided to quit smoking cigarettes. She's been smoking for abooouuttt 5 years now (well, heavily smoking) but she's cut down to around 3 cigarettes a day before quiting.

The past few days shes been hacking up a storm and this black tar shit keeps coming out of her lungs and her nose. She's been having on and off chest pains too.

I know it's probably her body cleaning itself out from lack of cigarette smoke but is this normal? Anyone else experience anything similar when quitting cigarettes?

I recently did a report paper about lung cancer for my science class. Hopefully thats not what it is, but that sounds like some of the symptoms for it. If it gets worse go to the hospital and see what they say because who knows it could be like you said. Also I learned from the paper that smoking marijuana while it can be bad for the lungs stops the spread of the cancer, so basically keep on smokin the green.

Yeah I doubt it's cancer, she says it happens everytime she tries to quit smoking. I know the top layer of her lungs must just be a fuckin' tar pit so hopefully her bodies just in cleanse mode. But yeah, I'll definately take her to the doctor if things get worse.

Don't listen to the 16 year old.

Cancer, hah

What's happening to her is completely normal. I've known heavy smokers who started coughing up blood only after they quit... but, the whole hacking process shouldn't last a long time. Go to the doctor if this goes on for over a week... he might at least give her something to help out with the cleansing process.

...but it's pretty damn normal if she's been a heavy smoker for 5 years.

I smoke, but I just cut down to half a pack a day, and it works for me.

i have some friends who cough up tar shit whenever they tried to quit.
i'm sure it's completely normal, it's just the tar coming off the lungs

That's so disgusting!!!

I quit smoking cigarettes over a year ago and I smoked for 7 years give or take.. And nothing like that like has ever happened to me. I smoke pot daily as well, and there is no black shit coming out of my lungs.. yuck

Maybe she should go to the doctor anyway.. Regardless of what these people say here.

Edit: I was smoking a pack a day at least at one point for a few years. So... Please make her go the doctor.

Well her mom's an RN and I told her about it and said that it means her lungs are really bad shape for a girl in her 20's. Your lungs are suppose to absorb all that shit until your older and THEN it starts building up but she smokes so much (between cigs and mondo-huge bong rips) that there's already build up in her lungs.
I've coughed up some weird shit before too, like gunk and blood, but never big black chunks of lung. Mmmm delicious, it just goes away on it's own I guess.

It is 100% normal to hack up stuff when you quit smoking. One of the side effects of smoking cigs is that it numbs the cilia of your lungs allowing tar and crap to build up on the walls of your lungs. When you stop smoking they stop being numb and realize that they are coated with tar. Then your bodys normal healthy reaction is to try and get rid of it. It usually lasts about 5-6 days then you feel amazing.

I'll make sure to tell her this because it's been grossing her out so much that she just wants to start smoking again to make it stop.

Thanks!
