Quitting Smoking and Improving Health

by William » Thu Dec 03, 2020 5:15 pm

Guys, I have taken a sabbatical from Electronics & Programming and want to get fit for mountaineering. My problem is I've been a smoker for 20 years. I use to cycle a lot and intend to get back into both cycling and mountaineering. My question is, can I recover enough of my lung function to enable me to achieve my goals?

Thanks Peeps, love from Ireland!

Congratulations of quitting. I don't see why you couldn't make great progress in physical fitness.

Awesome job for quitting! (Both of my parents have been smokers for their whole lives and my mom finally kicked the habit and is on her own wellness journey too). She had tried to quit multiple times and it is really difficult to do - so you should be proud of that first step!


Keep working at it and I am sure you will be able to make progress! :) Cycling sounds like a great way to get back into things! Good luck!
