Hi everyone this is my 1st post on this forum. Iam a 67 yrs old woman diagnosed with COPD ( emphasiema ) heart problems and rheumatoid arthritis. I have smoked since I was 9yrs old (tut tut ) I have tried I think everything there is to try and stop but to no avail. A few months ago my cardiologist told me that I mustn't stop as it would do more harm than good, my rheumatologist told me I have to stop, I just don't know what to do or even how ? If there is someone out there that has any suggestions I would be grateful of any help at all. The nurse that monitors me for my COPD changed my inhalers the last time I saw her and I must say that my breathing is somewhat better.
