Quitting smoking: the only practical and long-lasting way to treat smoker's cough

The best remedy to treat smoker's cough is to quit smoking completely. Some people who quit smoking are alarmed that their cough increases immediately afterward. Don't worry, this is normal: after quitting, the vibratory cilia that line the walls of the bronchi have more opportunities to repair themselves than they did while you were smoking. Their increased ability to clear foreign objects from the throat, trachea and airways leads to increased coughing to remove them.

This worsening of the smoker's cough after quitting is temporary. Most smokers can expect it to begin to decrease within three months of quitting.

Exercise is the best remedy for smoker's cough

To treat a smoker's cough, nothing beats exercise. Try running or cycling. This will allow you to expel the mucus that is in the airways. Don't hesitate to combine these physical exercises with breathing exercises. They are also excellent for treating a smoker's cough. You will find several in the Kwit application. Choose the one that suits you best.
