View Full Version : Asthma and Smoking

August 11th, 2015, 12:34 AM
Ever since I was a youngling I have had chronic asthma. I am so sensitive that the smallest factors may trigger a reaction..ugh. Anyways, I was curious how smoking cigarettes or marijuana affects those with asthma? Do you get an asthmatic trigger or feel wheezy? I do not plan on smoking anytime soon, but I guess I've always have had a curiosity about it.

Yeah, I'd say best you avoid smoking altogether.
I don't have asthma, but I've got diminished lung function due to scarring from having serious RSV when I was 6 weeks old that almost killed me. I work in a place where pretty much everybody except me and one other dude smokes heavily so I'm around cigarettes all the time and it sucks. I vape though and it doesn't cause any side effects for me at all.

I can't imagine smoking being good for your asthma

Yeah I agree with everyone here that smoking Pot or Cigarettes would not be the best thing for you. I mean it affects peoples breathing that don't have asthma and they smoke. So I would imagine it would affect someone with asthma like yourself 100 times stronger.

I know a couple of people with chronic asthma who can smoke weed but not cigarettes. cigs will definitely fuck with asthma.

My asthmatic friend always brings his inhaler as it can make him wheezy

I have an asthmatic friend who is a smoker. He had one attack when he was a child and ine when he was hanging out with us. Smoking + asthma is a definitely bad combo.

I'm not an expert on asthma but I wouldn't exactly recommend smoking whilst having that condition. I wouldn't recommend smoking in general but I'm sure that smoking would only complicate the issues you already face.

I knew a guy who had asthma and used to occasionally smoke. It was pretty bad, his lungs couldnīt handle it at all!

I know a guy who had a severe asthmatic attack triggered by smoking. He landed up in the hospital for quite a while. I think it's best you avoid smoking

Whilst I have no experience in this area, I'd strongly discourage smoking for someone with asthma. The two don't seem to go well together. (:

Yes it definitely does! You shouldn't smoke if you already have problems with asthma..you're just asking for trouble!
