QUITTING SMOKING IS SO IMPORTANT IF YOU HAVE COPD!
Don’t say, “Well I already have the disease what does it matter if I quit now?”
It matters BIG TIME for your future health!
If you QUIT it can SLOW progression of the disease!
If you DON’T quit, it can cause you to PROGRESS in the disease!
SMOKING is a trigger also for COPD flare-ups; when you smoke it causes inflammation and damages lung tissue. The bronchi thicken and obstruct air when you breath in and out thus causes the symptoms you experience. This also puts you at risk for infections.
Smoking harms your immune system, also!
YOU CAN QUIT I DID AFTER 38 YEARS! I know it’s hard to quit, but it’s even harder on your lung’s when you don’t quit!
IF YOU WANT TO CHANGE HOW YOU FEEL, HAVE BETTER HEALTH, BE LESS SICK AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE TO IMPROVE —QUIT!
