Thank you
Smoking damages the lining of your lungs and kills the cilia that line the lungs and are responsible to wafting mucous and keeping the lung lining healthy. Smoking increases your chance of lung cancer and other cancers. Smoking will make you more prone to chest infections and acute exacerbations of asthma. I recommend that you quit smoking as you can undo the damage done by it. See you local stop smoking advisor or GP for help.

Tobacco proves to be extremely notorious for those who is particularly prone to asthma as it aggravates the frequency, rate and intensity of asthma attacks. .
