how long did you smoke for and what age did you quit?

If you have smoked for 20 years and have a smokers cough and just gave up, its likely your lungs aren't going to repair and you may get lung disease.

If you are like 20 something and smoked for a few years or on and off, it will probably improve gradually over 6 months until you wont notice it.

I think it takes about 3 years for your lungs to clear out but after 6 months or so your aerobic capacity should be to normal.

well at least you've stopped, i doubt you've done any lasting damage.

dont regret it, you did what you thought was right at the time, you cant go back, move on.

I smoke for 10 years...I quit 5 years ago...it took 6 weeks to feel good. It takes 7 years for your lungs to fully heal....

I feel great now though...

Isn't Mayorga supposed to smoke frequently also? He never seems to have trouble with his condition.
