Lung Gunk!

I have been using an ecig for about 2 weeks now. I have started coughing up all kinds of gunk and junk! Is this normal, and what is it?

    Smoking deadens the cilia in the lungs. These are little hairlike cells that help brush out dust and other residues in normal, healthy lungs. One of the reasons smokers have more infections is that their cilia are not working, so foreign matter accumulates in their lungs. When you quit, the cilia get back to work within a couple of days. The result: you start coughing up more phlegm and sputum. Sometimes, ex-smokers get scared by this and think they have a new problem. But it’s not that at all, just another example of your body getting back to normal.
