Re: copd im scared

Don't be scared. It is not the end of your life. The most important thing to do is to not smoke. No Joke. If you want to see what it is like worse, keep smoking. It will get much worse if you keep smoking.

The second most important thing to do is to exercise. Strength exercise and cardio, at least walking. You have a choice. You can give in to the disease or you can fight it. Fight it by exercising.

This is my experience. I was first diagnosed over ten years ago. But I didn't stop smoking when I was diagnosed. When Chantix came out, I took that and was able to stop.
