It doesn't re-crystallise in your lungs, however, in my personal experience (also had asthma before beginning to smoke, but smoked nothing else in the years before, but pot), holding it really did fuck up my lungs.
I'd never had Bronchitis, but a week after trying out the holding it in idea, I developed Bronchitis, I believe from the exposure to chemicals, aka Chemical Bronchitis.
For my asthma, I've been prescribed both a rescue inhaler (which I use 100 more times than the recommended dose), and a steroid
inhaler, Asmanaex Twisthaler, which is not a rescue inhaler, but a long term treatment.
When I developed Bronchitis I began taking Bronkaid, an otc drug
that was recommended for Bronchitis and sufferers of long-term asthma. The main ingredient, though, was ephedrine, a bronchodilator, but if you are already smoking meth
, I wouldn't suggest mixing any other meds that will shoot your blood pressure up.
I was given two herbal supplements by a hippy family member that were absolutely amazing!! One of them was Astragulas. Astragalus is a well known immune enhancing herb. It is widely used in the Chinese traditional medicine and is known as anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. Polysaccharides in this plant are immune enhancing. Seriously, look this one up, you will definitely want to try it!
The other supplement I will have to find out the name of, if you are serious about trying it.
Lastly, keep up on your antibiotics!

Yep, when I went to basic, I coughed up shit nearly the whole time. After about 2 month it was down to every so often, and by the 3rd, I rarely coughed anything up.
