Our expert says:
You are probably smoking fit. This does not mean that your lungs are OK. You are probably suffering from underlying emphyzema or chronic obstructive lung disease. You might not present with these symptoms yet but if you keep on smoking, you will definately start having these symptoms within the next two to five years. As a smoker, your risk for lung disease is statistically 100% after 20 years of smoking. Your cardiovascular and stroke risk is at least 8 to 12 fold more than that of a non-smoker. This is a situation where the cliche counts to quit smoking while you are still ahead.
