I saw this thread running on another forum and thought it was interesting.
For me I had mild asthma as a child, I also had bronchiolitis, scarlet fever and the odd asthma attack up to the age of about 6. I have a strong familial connection to respiratory illness with no Alpha One. I foolishly smoked socially & relatively lightly from 17 to 34. A child of the late 60’s I grew up in an age of smog and open fireplaces but I’m convinced it was the smoking. I’m 52 now have mild Chronic Bronchitis and irreversible small airways disease. Dealing with this since 04 and crucially my FEV1 / FVC ratio has recently dropped below 70. Grrrrr!
