Hello everyone, at the age of 57 I gave up smoking, I started smoking about 35 years earlier and over the years progressed to about ten cigarettes a day. I thought it would be easy to give up but it was not I had tried on many occasions. It was brilliant when I finally beat the addiction. However sine then, I get extremely bad colds, Bronchitis and ended up with Asthma and it has got worse and worse over each year since giving up smoking. I have been seeing the practice nurse in the past 3 months who has been a great help. But I thought I would be healthy after all this time. Is there someone who can tell me if they got the same thing I have and if the now have improved health wise or not. I just would like to know how other people feel and think, as I am so disappointed that I feel worse rather than healthier after all this time. Having said that I will never ever go back to smoking and wished I never had of started in the first place, I wish I had listened to me friends, work colleagues and advertising.
