Life after smoking
Dear Cyberdoc,

I have been smoking for 3 years now and I am asthmatic. I have just given up and I would like to know:
Will my lungs stay damaged?
Is there anything I can take in a vitamin to help me out?
What can I do to fix me?

Tash, hopefully your lung will recover from the smoking, but I can tell you that they won’t keep on being damaged at the rate they were. If you want to take vitamins, make sure it includes vitamin C. Good luck.
