Last year I went to the doctor with a respiratory infection. He heard me wheezing and told me I had COPD. Then he did a lung x-ray, came back in and told me I am Pre-COPD. He didn't explain what that meant. I still haven't been able to quit smoking. I have joined the Smoking Addiction and Recovery Group. But seems everyone on there has already been able to quit, and I feel bad because I haven't been able to yet. Even though I am still smoking my lungs have improved since last year. Possibly because of outdoor allergies and all the mushroom dust that breathed while doing yardwork back then. I want to quit smoking but even cutting down has been so hard to do. Has anyone here been told they were pre-COPD before? The doc told me to quit smoking immediatly last year in Nov. But it's been 10 months, still can't quit yet and I don't feel any worse, feeling better if anything. I just wonder how long I have before it is irreversable?
