Allergy and Smoking
Smoking (cigaretts or mary jane) paralyzes the cilia (little hairs in our lungs that filter out what is not supposed to enter), so we develop asthma while we smoke and don't feel the filtering. As a result, when we stop smoking, they start to work again and now we FEEL the congestion in our lungs. Keep on truckin though! Life is so much better on the other side! Seeing what is coming out of my lungs after 10 years of smoking is so gross but smoking is even MORE GROSS. Time and avoiding smoke will help.
