This is Dr. David

it sounds like you haven't taken very good care of your body.

smoking cigarettes and pot will cause irritation of your lungs and put tar and nicotine and smoke and carcinogens into your lungs.

you are probably feeling mucus plugs and airway irritation from your prior smoking.

you need to stop smoking and eat healthier and start to exercise to become healthier.

you can change your lifestyle

if you continue to smoke and eat unhealthy, you will end up with health issues, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer

you can see a doctor now and get pulmonary function tests, CT scans again.

I bet they won't show cancer

but your doctor will again tell you to quit smoking and to exercise and to eat healthier.

let me know if you have questions.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 1 year ago.

you have to quit smoking and eat healthier first.

you might be depressed.

you should see a doctor to see if you would benefit from antidepression medications

you might benefit from seeing a therapist as well.

your doctor can refer you to see a therapist.

are you willing to see a doctor?
