I started smoking again around May earlier this year, but only red shorts and I rip off the filter. I don't binge/chain smoke. Rarely smoke more than 5-7 a day but I got a dry cough that itches and makes me want to cough more. I've had a cough before about a month ago but it was more of just getting the mucus out of my lungs and I'd slow down or stop for about a week and went away but now it just flat out hurts and I can breathe with no weeze. No allergies, no sickness either.
