Hello, indirectly smoking may cause your immunity system down. It is widely accepted that due to low immunity, covid19 may affect people. You might have heard that many people will get recovered faster soon after the the disease, that is mainly because of their immunity system. For every act that you do, you may need to do a counter act. If smoking is non stoppable, it is better you take care of your respiratory health and you may consume some ayurvedic medicines to boost your immunity system. Thanks and regards.

Dear lybrate-user, there will be no such feeling as in this short period there are little chances to develop physical or psychological dependence, though you may feel cravings. Try to overcome it. I am damn sure that you can do it. Keep faith on you and you will defeat the cravings. Thank you.

Hi lybrate-user, the breathlessness you report may be secondary to anxiety. Anxiety attacks are very distressing but not very dangerous. I would suggest that you see any doc near you, they will be able to help you out. They might ask you to do a couple of tests like an xray and ecg to make sure you are okay. Have a great day.

Have reduced smoking from 30 plus per day to 3 only first thing in the morning. Heavily vaping for the rest of the day and evening before bed. Is this beneficial at all, or should I just carry on smoking?

Hello, vaping is one of the heavily debated topics if its harmful or not. However, its harmful effects has began to show up. In 2019, the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) reported over two thousand suspected cases of severe acute lung illnesses (e-cigarette, or vaping, product use associated lung injury [evali]) linked to the use of e-cigarette devices to aerosolize substances for inhalation. So, I believe its definitely harmful. If you need help quitting, you can always contact me. Thanks!
