A question for smokers...

Cigarettes that is. I smoke occasionally. Like a few a day (3). And lately I've been feeling like I have a hair ball in my throat. For the past few months now. I can't cough anything up though, so it's not a hair ball! Don't laugh...lol...but, what do you think?

  • mamaada Ive known many people in your situation with the spouse smoking and they wanting to to quit. I also commend you on not smoking in front of your kids. I know its hard on your own, but when you have someone that you are around most of the time doing what you are trying not to do is even harder. But good luck, and there is help.

  • Stop smoking!!! Wait a while and if it's still bothering than go to a doctor.

  • Go see your doctor and have him check it out....its probably nothing (could just be a new chemical in your cigarette brand that is bothering your throat). Oh, and try to quit. =)

  • I would see an ENT (Ear Nose and Throat) Dr. You need to make sure it's not serious.

  • I'm not sure. But I have this problem too. I use to smoke like half a pack a day, now that I'm pregnant I MIGHT have two, at most. Usually just one before bed, because that is my habit that keeps me sane, literally. But since I cut down, I have the same feeling and if I even try to cough it up or hack it to spit it out, I gag and pretty much puke. I just leave it alone and say screw it. If you find out what it is though, let me know!!! =]
