  • Hi, Dennis. I am no expert but I am looking at your FEV1 readings and feeling jealous! Your results have varied a little but started out at 82% and are now 81% and that is 8 years later. These are GOOD readings.  Get rid of the cigarettes and I can almost guarantee you will die of something else entirely! Try not to worry, just get on with your life without the cigarettes. :)

    And try not to SHOUT. ;)

  • Sorry about the caps... and ty

  • I agree with Toci...You look like you are in pretty good shape- The longer you smoke the worse things are going to get quicker.
