In brief: Varies

COPD can be anywhere from mild to extremely severe.
It is always serious though because it implies that you have the genetics or what we call phenotype to develop the disease in the first place. Stop smoking immediately to reduce the risk of progression and avoid second hand smoke and dusty environments.
