One time I had a really bad cough for quite a few weeks, so I stopped smoking. The cough got way worse, so I went to the doctor. Doc told me to start smoking again! He said something about how it irritates the lungs from forming mucus and would calm the cough down. Can't remember exactly what he said but he did tell me to start smoking again! I got better.
