Smoking - Quitting

my 70yr old mother has been advised not to quit smoking as this will increase the risk of bronchial infections,pleurisy etc, which would be more hazardous to her health. Can this possibly be true?

I do not agree with this advice. The complications that arise after smoking cessation can be treated with antibiotics and bronchodilators.
