Asthma does not automatically go away after childhood (especially in someone who smokes). Any adult who has no energy for physical activities needs to talk to their doctor. Depending on what the doctor finds, special testing and treatment can be helpful. In someone who had asthma as a child, under-treated adult asthma is the most likely cause. It may respond very well to pretty simple treatment.
