    Need some advice r.e a cough

    Primal Fuel
    Hi guys

    I have decided you are the most intellegent bunch to contact on a forum,

    I have a question for you and do not wanna hear about how bad smoking is for me i already know thanks

    anyways I smoke the green herb once or twice per evening, along with intense training routines and primal eating.

    I had a cough start about 3 months ago, I waited 2 months and had a chest x-ray which came back all clear, but now another month later I am still coughing,

    I cough pghlemmy yellowy/hint of brown stuff up every morning and occasionally throughout the day.

    The cough has never got any better or any worse.

    If i quit smoking and it is a smokers cough i should still cough for another month which means being paranoid for another month - at the moment I have cut down to only 1 herb a night and hopefully continually more.

    Do you guys think I should get ANOTHER xray? or what is your opinions?

    I dont wanna waste the health service's time keep having more xrays but this cough is concerning

    thanks

    When I gave up smoking many years ago my cough stopped almost immediately so you should know pretty quickly. My other thought was maybe it is a chest infection, but presumeably the doc has thought of that.

    Start making brownies instead (paleo herb brownies of course).

    The answer seems kind of obvious to me. I think it's obvious to you, as well. You smoke. You have a nasty cough with nasty colored phlegm. Your body is telling you something. Now you have the choice to pick which you want- to smoke weed, or to have clear lungs.
