I studied medicine so I did well. All of the things listed are fairly accurate but as far as a smoker's lungs are concerned the question was how long til the lungs were as healthy as a non-smoker's after quitting. It really depends on how long they've smoked for and how much damage was done. There are a lot details missed in the equation.

Gordon...hahaha..Seriously, though, even sitting you can still do some exercise, arms, legsetc., and especially, if possible , moving feet and ankles very often to prevent clots..wriggling your toes in great, if you can do it, for helping circulation in the legs.Do that as often as you remember, I was taught this when nurse training..we even had signs on the walls telling patients to "wriggle those toes" every time they read the sign.

wouldn't alcohol. tobacco, and diet be causes, not symptoms? symptoms are usually things you can't do anything about. these sound like choices.

Thank you!

Catman P, your spamming the thread with 100 short, identical comments is very annoying, and it's not…

Beautiful reminder. Thank you!:))
