Smoking: Congratulations on quit smoking. What test you talking about ?. It depends upon what damage was caused in the lungs by smoking. If no permanent change happened you should be okay, If had emphysematous changes they are irreversible, still it is good to avoid the toxins/smoking to prevent further damage.
