I'm 18 years old and female, I started smoking at


Q: I'm 18 years old and female, I started smoking at 16 and I've had a wheezy chest and i've been coughing up brown/green mucus for the past two months or so now. I wake up in the mornings with a lot of phlegm in my throat and I have to then spit excessively into the toilet. My chest is also very wheezy at night and I find it difficult to breathe if I lay on my front. I'm really worried and I'm hoping it's just a typical smoking thing?

Symptoms:  Coughing up brown/green phlegm
wheezy chest
uncomfort in breathing when lay on front
