Hi everyone, I've been a smoker for 20 years and I have been diagnosied with Emphysema today and I'am very scared and anxious. My doctor just said try and stop smoking so I haven't had lots of information about it. I have to take an appointement with a specialist who I guess will tell me more. What makes it harder is I have no one to speak too, that's why I'am here. I'am not sure what kind of food I should be eating most to try and control it. I plan to stop smoking asap, it is hard though because as with many smokers the cigarette is the thing we turn to at times of stress. I'am so scared and lonely. Thank you for reading.
