Hi. My name is Mike. My full story - I've smoked cigs and weed for 30 years. Periodically I would experience chest pain from smoking too much. It would hurt more every time I would smoke, or it wouldn't start hurting until after I smoked so I would stop for a while and go back to doing both and was able to smoke for quite a while before the discomfort would return. This past May it got pretty bad so I decided to quit both and the pain went away pretty fast. After a month I started up again but soon after the pain returned so I quit again on August 21st. It's been 2 and a half weeks and the chest pain is a lot less but still there. Is this normal? Will it ever completely go away? I also sometimes have a weird feeling in my chest like pressure. It doesn't hurt, just feels funny. Almost like I have placed a small barbell weight on my chest. Is this normal and will this subside eventually?
