Actually I am very convinced. When I first came into the ER, my O2Sat was bouncing around 90%, which it should be well above 95%. Any lower and I fear they would have had me on a respirator. After my x-rays showed no collapsed lung, he came back and talked to me and said there is no way I am gunna kick this unless I quit smoking.
Anyone who smokes knows it is harder to breathe sometimes when you are doing things. But I didnt realize it could lower your oxygen saturation level so much.
I havent had one cig. today and I am doing great! I am coughing less today, and I am actually kinda in a good mood, besides the occasional dirty look when someone bumps into me.
