How long after quitting...

I quit smoking 9 years ago. I had maybe 5 cigarettes after that, the most recent one being 4 years ago. Whenever I get a bad cough, I swear I can taste tar. Is it possible to still be coughing up tar after that long? I only smoked for a couple of years.

I smoked for 41 years, quit cold turkey in Jan. 2017. I haven't tasted tar yet, but I haven't really been sick since quitting either.

I never had that happen but all these years later (about 13) I still get a weird craving for one but its rare.

This may be a long article but it's facinating on what happens to the body after you quit smoking.

I used to smoke, took me 5 years to stop craving it and now its a terrible smell to me.

I smoked half a pack a day for probably 5 years. Total years smoking was 12. I quit about 11 years ago.

I don't remember that at all...
