The time required by a smoker to regain healthy condition as a nonsmoker and nullify side effects of smoking is three years. Ayurvedic medicines like khadiradi vati, vasavleha and many more can be useful and needs supervision from doctor. If symptoms do not subside post treatment hrct thorax need to be done. Steam inhalation twice daily and drinking warm water is good.

hello there. quitting smoking is the first and foremost thing you need to do. and then consult a pulmonologist for detailed evaluation. blood in sputum is not a small thing. don't ignore this further. regards
