    No, it’ll actually help you. Your body still has to adjust to you not smoking, it might take a while but it’ll help you out heaps in the long run.

    Did you have any cold drinks yesterday? Cold ice cream?

    My asthma is known to act up with cold air.

    maybe your body is just really craving cigarettes or something

    i highly doubt not smoking would make asthma worse

    Your Asthma attack will be more if you continue to smoke. Quitting smoking should be a priority for people who have asthma, or have family members with asthma, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology(AAAAI).For people suffering with asthma, smoking is the worst thing you can do.

    How does smoking affect a person’s asthma?-

    Smoking can harm your body in many ways, but it is very harmful to the lungs. The airways in a person with asthma are very sensitive and “twitchy” and therefore can easily be squeezed down by the smooth muscle that surrounds these tubes. Many things can trigger symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, experiencing chest tightness and shortness of breath. When a person inhales tobacco smoke whether for personal smoking or passive smoke, these irritating substances can set off an asthma attack.

    Quitting smoking decreases the chance of triggering asthma attacks and improves your lung function whether you have asthma or not. Everyone should be smoke free. –

    Only temporarily. I don’t have asthma, but I know that when I quit smoking I was having trouble breathing for weeks. It was particularly bad during the first few days. But within a few weeks my breathing had returned to normal. Within three months I was breathing much better than I could when I smoked.

    Smoking does a lot of damage to your lungs. The problem is you don’t become aware of most of this damage until you actually try to quit. It takes time for them to heal.

    Believe me I know quitting is hard. Just give it time.

    Stopping smoking will actually make you feel better. The one thing about smoking is you tend to take in a deep breath as you are inhaling, so you expand your lungs. Now that you are quitting smoking try some lung exercises to help expand your lung capacity. Take in a deep slow breath and then slowly exhale, also every now and then take in a deep breath and as you are inhaling raise your shoulders up when you go to exhale blow out fast and drop shoulders, you can also try using a straw, just hold the straw to your lips, inhale slowly and take the straw away and then slowly exhale “the same as if you were smoking”. Hope I explained that well enough to understand and help you. Best to you.
