Re: COPD anyone?

I have always wondered about that also. People that have COPD and quit smoking - there is obvious damage, but will the damage progress even if you quit smoking? It seems to me that it would halt the damage. I know that damaged lung tissue cannot repair, but maybe it will not progress. Let's hope not. I have asthma and have some lung damage from that. I have never smoked though.
