COPD anyone?

i was diagnosed with copd about 12 yrs ago. have made several attempts to quit smoking since then, with 4 mos. being my longest quit. i have now been smoke free since 6/26.
i have had an emergency inhaler all those yrs., but find i'm using it more since my quit?
i'm afraid i waited to long to quit smoking, already having fully damaged lungs.
any words about permanent lung damage to a 57 yr old, 42 yr smoking?
i was hoping to not need the dreaded oxygen in the future, but am very nervous thinking this quit came to late.
