In brief: Yes

Your asthma, for one! smoking greatly increases your chances of having an asthma attack - which could be fatal or lead you to a hospital stay.
Lung cancer, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis are not necessarily more likely in your case, but smoking certainly increases your risk of getting them. Quit today.
