Unformatted text preview: both can be related somehow. I would suggest that you go to the doctor and get the shortness of breath checked out. I have been reading on the website on “Smoking and COPD” that if you are a smoker it does not matter how many cigarettes you smoke a day because any amount can cause serious damage to your lungs and smokers can develop COPD and some of the symptoms to COPD is SHORTNESS OF BREATH!!! I know you have been smoking for the past 5 years and you love it and can’t quit but smoking is bad for your respiratory health? You can get a disease called COPD, which I mentioned earlier, COPD is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Like I mentioned earlier some of the symptoms include shortness of breath. Your specific respiratory system is not normal because a normal respiratory system does not have problems breathing and a smoker has problems breathing and so does a person with COPD. I hope you take my advice and get that checked out. Take care!...
