bevann,

You are quite right--you need to quit smoking. Of course that's easier said than done. I finally quit after decades of smoking and, yes, ill health. I quit too many times to remember but what finally worked for me was the patch and Allen Carr's book (I can't remember the exact title). The book was KEY to my quit.

Also, I did suffer from COPD and was on every steroid available. I started nebulizing glutathione (a combination of amino acids) several years ago, and quit the steroids. I have no symptoms now of COPD. I'm not saying that I'm cured (haven't been tested) but I feel "normal." You can research glutathione online. It must be prescribed by an MD and is made at a compound pharmacy.

Do not give up. Keep trying.
