I've have quit smoking earlier this year, never had hardly any phlegm, and it is sometimes harder to breathe for me.  I've increased the humidity at times with a vaporizer which has helped some.  I do also have to say the majority of my smoking was regular tobacco which I rolled or Winstons.  Maybe the lack of additives is the reason I did not have much to hack. . . Or maybe it was the fact the inhalers always helped me cough up the crap :)  Anyone else with similar problems?

hi Green Grove

its interesting you should mention all that I smoked for 33 years very heavily and outside of a little lack of circulation I rarely coughed but things changed so very quickly

I quit May 2007 and things seemed fairly okay for about 6 months there was no coughing up phlem or black stuff or anything one would expect from years of lung damage , instead after six months things started becoming increasingly difficult to do and breathing got worse until I found myself struggling for air .

Just 6 months ago I was finally diagnosed with emphysema I learned breathing techniques and finally got inhalers to help me breathe .I breathe better now but your story is almost as though I were telling it .If you can inhale slowly for 2 counts and exhale for 4 counts to find yourself suddenly breathing better I would look into finding out if it is asthma or something else .
