Benefits of quitting smoking if you have COPD
If you have COPD and you quit...
- - Your lungs will work better
- - You’ll cough and wheeze less
- - You’ll be short of breath less often
- - You’ll prevent your COPD from getting any worse, and you’re much more likely to live longer. This is true even for people with severe COPD.
