What does it mean when you keep coughing up mucus?
Why do you always feel like you have to cough up mucus but you never can get any up?
A genetic disorder called 'Cystic Fibrosis', maybe responsible for the over production of mucus. Otherwise, production of mucus is your bodies reaction to dust or other elements that could damage the lungs. The part of the airway that allows the mucus to move up, is called the cilia (tiny hairs that brush the mucus up away from the lungs) which may be damaged not allowing the mucus to travel up and out the airway. The cause of not being able to get rid of mucus or it being too thick could also be because of your water intake. The higher the intake, the thinner the mucus and also the more regularly the mucus is cleaned.

Why Does Smokers Have A Smoker Cough?
In your lungs we have Cilia and production of mucus. The cilia beat out mucus and we either cough it out or swollow it, gross yeah but normal. Smoke cause the cilia not to move and the build up of mucus starts, therefore, in the morning since a person doesn't smoke in their sleep coughs up the mucus that builded up in their lungs.
