I am not an expert here, I quit smoking 2 years ago, 2 months, 18 days,ago..It took me many attempts but I succeeded!.. and you will too. I went through all of the things you did.. Your body is learning how to re-heal it self from all the years of nicotine.. 1. Phlegm-/Mucus will eventually stop your lungs will in time get better and stronger. You will occasionally experience bad tastes in your mouth, especially after exercise.. i on occasion will still taste it..over time it will go away.. 2. Constipation- that will pass too..keep exercising daily. I exercise 6 days a week(walking on a treadmill, Recumben t bike 3 times a week, and Circuit training 3 times a week. I have a routine.
Drink plenty of water throughout the day, it will begin to flush out your digestive tract and keep you hydrated ..eat plenty of fruits/vegetables too. Try not to worry, your body will go through so many changes but all for the better. Geoffrey, Congratulations again ! You are going to feel like a new person, I promise. I wish you many Blessings , all the best to you,
