brown flecks in flem

I have been smoking weed for about 7 years but I have always been around second hand smoke and just recently started smoking cigarrettes. And about 2 years ago I started with a heavy hoarse cough and when I would spit there would be little pieces of brown flecks in it. Im curious as to what that is and is it bad?

That is TAR built up in your lungs.  VERY bad.

it sounds like tar build up. I get that in my lungs too. I know its gross, but you're better off coughing it up than keeping it in there.
