There have been a few posts recently on cigarettes. Quit now. They're awful for you & the asthma makes it worse. As long as you quit now after only one cigarette, then no, it won't affect the rest of your life. But if you've been smoking for a while or if you plan on smoking more, yes, it will affect you.

Yes, second hand smoke still effects you negatively.

Yes. Secondhand smoke is very harmful. I have been around smoking my whole life and I honestly think I'm addicted to the smoke. Sounds silly, but it's true. But yes, it is harmful and if you have asthma it's so much worse for you. Don't smoke and stay away from people who smoke. It'll be better for you in the long run.

Yes. Secondhand smoke can cause the same effects as regular smoking if you're around it enough.

Agreed on secondhand smoke. I smoke about a pack a month plus a few stogies, hookah, and weed. Weed, hookah and cigars make me nauseous if I smoke too much, I need to have some self-restraint! Cigarettes not at all, they don't taste very good though for the most part.

I definitely would advise you against smoking, especially since you already have breathing problems. You should quit now while you still aren't addicted to it. Secondhand smoke is also still bad for you, as others have said. Its never good to breath in smoke.


And here you are living, despite it all.

I’ve moved your thread to the General Health forum because smoking related topics belong here. As a community we want what’s best for you and health risks are defiantly a top priority when it comes to smoking, its likely you’ll get good advice here.

Take care.

When I tried a cigarette, the same thing happened to me. I also have asthma. It went away after a couple days. As long as you quit now you are at less of a risk of long-term effects. Secondhand smoke can cause the same breathing problems and health problems as if you were smoking. If you could ask them to smoke outside or not right beside you, might help.
