Hubby just turned 40. He's smoked since he was a teenager (though has cut down to maybe half pack a day for the last 2 years cause he doesn't smoke in the house). He's also a chronic marijuana smoker (at least one a day for the 15 years I've known him). Every morning, he coughs for about 5 minutes and spits phlegm (though seems OK the rest of the day). Sometimes when I'm sitting beside him, he breathing sounds phlegmy and I nudge him to clear his throat to get rid of it. Here's the kicker: Otherwise, he's healthy as a horse. He rides his bike and plays hockey once a week. If we were to run a race, I'd be breathing hard - he'd be fine. Wazzup with that??
Questions: He's going for a physical. would it detect cancer? what are his chances of living to be an old(er) man? (I know he won't quit. he thinks he's immortal
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
