In brief: Copd

Stopping smoking will eventually help him. He should see his doctor about getting into the best health possible.
Living a healthy life style is important. Your support is vital. There is no reason that making love should be withheld as this promotes well being.

In brief: Quit smoking!

The best thing he can do is quit smoking! he will be so amazed at how well he will feel tobacco smoke free.
Smoking is the #1 cause of preventable death in the us. And, with every puff, he is continuing to damage his lungs. Bottom line: he needs to quit and quit now. It is hard, no doubt, but it can be done.
