I quit smoking like a 9-10 days ago and with in the past like 5 days i've been coughing up green phlegm and my voice is raspy, like i'm about to lose my voice. Did anyone else experience this after they quit smoking??

Green phlegm is infection. See a doctor. I coughed up brown phlegm for a long tine, even while I smoked.

While I smoked, and a bit after I quit, I was coughing up brown. I only have green or yellow when I'm sick. And if you're raspy, you're sick.

It's likely that you got sick. Your body is confused and trying to get rid of a lot of shit. I always feel like hell the first two weeks after quitting
