    I used to be right there with you! When I smoked – first I got sick all the time and whenever I got a cold or sinus infection it always turned into bronchitus that would last about 2 months for me. It was terrible. It wasnt until after I quit – which honestly – I quit 3 years ago, and ironically I have not been sick in 3 years – and Im telling you – I was sick ALL the time. I would always feel that as soon as the cough went away, I was getting another cold/cough. At least you know you need to quit (though if you set a date of when you plan to, most likely you wont end up doing it, your procrastinating. Best time to do it is when your sick because the ciggs dont even taste as good then anyway and you go through withdrawal while your sick – its not as bad…trust me). When I would get like this, nothing really helped. I would take codeine cough syrup at night to help me sleep (prescribed by my doc) but even that didnt work out very well. You just kind of have to push through it as best you can. Do you know what kind of cough it is?? Is it a wet sounding cough – like are you coughing up mucus?? Or really dry and hoarse?? Both maybe?? If it is wet, you want a decongestant – maybe some sudafed or something – it wont start to get better until your all drained out or dried up. Also mucinex works well (DONT get the mucinex D though – that stuff is terrible). Oh and prop your pillow up a little when you sleep – its not as comfortable to sleep, but you wont cough as much. Sorry I cant be of more help =( When you smoke sickness is always worse =( Look at the bright side though – there is a six pack stomach in the wings for you from all this coughing! lol.
