Quitting smoking is a top priority for all smokers, but if you have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) it's even more urgent. Here's why: If you quit, it might be possible to slow down the disease and lessen the toll it takes on your breathing, but only if you cut out cigarettes permanently -- and soon.

Welcome, and it's so nice you are so concerned about your mom, she's lucky to have you.
I am not an expert, but her doctor is. I'm thinking the best thing to do is take her to the doctor and ask these questions. A physical at this point is a good idea. Ask the doc what to expect and how long til she's feeling better as far quitting smoking goes. Best of luck and health to her, please let us know how she is doing. Quitting smoking is the best thing she can do for her health right now.View Thread
