Smoking kills

Today, my grandmother - who has been a heavy smoker for almost forty years, and does not believe in the dangers of smoking - was diagnosed with COPD. Also, I'm now at a greater risk of developing COPD because of her (and my parents, who also smoke). FML

my grandfather smokes in the house (I love with him) and I've been to the hospital 3 times because of it and he won't quit. you can literally see the smoke in the air when you walk in

COPD can be controlled with medication. it also does NOT mean you can't live a full and happy life. I have COPD and Asthma and I lead a normal life. yep I take meds for it, but so what. the best way to see if you have it is to get a pulmonary function test(PFT).

I'm sorry that their poor life choices are impacting your health. Smoking is a menace to society. I recently saw a statistic that smokers receive more radiation annually from the polonium and lead that accumulates in their lungs than nuclear workers or astronauts.
