|This just doesn't make sense...

I recently quit smoking... in truth I never smoked very regularly, maybe 3-5 cigs a day, more on the weekends or when out socializing and such. I began to notice this habit putting a serious damper on my singing voice, and of course on top of all the other good reasons to quit, I quit. Cold turkey... honestly wasn't that difficult, I don't really have any cravings or whatnot. I guess I'm just a lucky one.|
Here's my question... is there a reason that my whole respiratory system has been fighting me ever since? I would think that kicking the habit would improve my breathing, etc., but all it's been ever since is coughing, raspiness and no improvement in my vocalization. (*growls*)... I don't know if this is some kind of withdrawal/body adjustment thing, or maybe just some odd coincidence that I'd develope allergies around the same time I'd quit (I do have an appt. with an allergist, but not until Sept.!!! UGH!).
Any of you born-again nonsmokers have any similar experiences, or anyone at all have any thoughts?
Many thanks. :)
