Been coughing up black (dark brown/green) matter and a clear gluey jelly like substance in my muscus sporadically for a good 6 years or so- Long before drug use started or any form of abuse started. I have been on many things to try and fix this- Some subdue, nothing removes. Tested for all allergies and nothings came up
Did you read the post about percussive therapy? It's something a respiratory tech (pulmonary tech) might do, but you can do it at home. Look back at my posts. Heck I'll post one again.
This shows the six position.

The right lung has three lobes; the left two. You percuss (tap) such that you tap all of the lobes, so you have to tap the apex (shoulder region), sides of the ribcage, front, and back to figure out where the mucus is clogged.

[Note: Right and Left are reversed in medical anatomy drawing so it's the perspective of the doc looking at the patient. Same thing with Xrays too.]
Note the decline position so it drains toward the mouth. The worst areas are the lowest parts of the lung near the diaphram, which makes sense due to gravity, and why bad mucus could hang around for a long time if it gets into those very low postions.Anyone who has a cough and mucus is coming out and having trouble NEEDS to do this. Maybe in ten years it will be in parenting books, and the next generation will think of it as normal.
That tapping is far better than anything to help remove the mucus. Would you rather wait for cough medicine and pills to slowly work? Or would rather get immediate relief? It's up to you.
Anyone can be trained to do it. Heck a child could do it for you.
When doing the breast region, have the patient put her hands on her breasts, so you percussing her hands so you have to do it harder to still work, but this protects her privacy. Percussing direct can of course be done on your lover, but then be careful. The breast has suspensory ligaments, the tiny hair like support for the breast. They get stretched with age and that's why breasts get droopy. You don't want to accelerate that process.
You could use a massager to do the same things as it will transfer the vibration or tapping to the lobes of the lung too. That might be what a person by themselves does.
When someone is in drug rehab, their liver is a mess. Kidney too. Both filter the blood especially the liver.
In Germany they give milk thistle to detox.
I know personally of a very bad alcoholic who was dying and had a matter of days to live. She took milk thistle and it gave her a month to say goodbye. It's powerful and cheap.
If you were smoking some drug, you'll have tar in your lungs that got deposited as particles in mucus and slowly will get express.
Sounds like an full blown bacterial infection. Drug users of long duration sometimes get fungal infections in their lungs because they've abused their bodies so much. Your symptoms sound like aspergillosis.
They have to learn how to expel mucus because their lungs are damaged. Seems dumb, but try it. Seriously.
