After effects of stop smoking

I stopped smoking 3 months ago and my coughing of phlem from the lungs has not subsided at all. ( smoked 30/day for 30 odd years). How long will it take to get rid of the phlem?????. My GP has diagnosed chronic bronchitis. Is their anything that I could drink or take to slow down the coughing& mdash - especially at night?????
