Are you smoking organic tobacco? My husband is trying to stop smoking. I mix his organic tobacco half and half with organic mullein leaf and throw in a pinch of lobelia. Sometimes throw in a little skullcap. For a while he coughed up a bunch of stuff, but now his lungs are better. I am hoping to cut the tobacco back gradually. He is down to about 3 of those a day. If your lungs are bothersome of course you should not smoke at all. Hope you get to feeling better soon.
