How badly has smoking affected my lungs since im asthmatic?
I have been smoking for about 4 years and im 20 now, I have had asthma since i was a young kid... I have smoked quite alot of cigerettes and pot over this period of time and I want to know if their is any way of telling that permanent damage has been caused to lungs and cilia etc? If i quit now, how long would it take for them to repair and hence feel good and healthy again?

I smoked for over 20 years before quitting and shortly after i gave up smoking i was diagnosed with asthma, the asthma progressively worsened until last year i was hospitalized with breathing difficulties.

I always assumed that my asthma was due to smoking for so long but after extensive tests by the hospital consultant it was concluded that my asthma was unrelated to smoking and was actually caused by a severe allergy to dust mites! The tests I had proved that in the 14 years since i quit my lungs actually showed no sign of any smoking related damage at all and were actually "normal" for my age (lung capacity decreases with age anyway).

So don't just assume that smoking will always lead to long term damage but do give up the habit as soon as you can, and if possible have some allergy tests carried out to find out exactly what is triggering your asthma

If you want to see exactly what damage and the condition of your lungs are then you have to get a CT Scan.

It's really hard to say but if you quit everything in your 20s and never smoke pot or cigarettes ever again the cilia can almost completely repair itself over the course of a few years.

The more Cardio exercise you do after quitting will speed up the rehabilitation process.

my personal experience:
I am 24 have mild asthma and smoked pot and cigerettes for a number of years but quit it in august 2007

For the last 6 months i haven't used my inhaler and my lungs have felt better than ever.

Good luck
