In brief: Some thoughts

Many advances in treatments have become available for asthma in the past two decades.
However, the rate of sudden death during an asthma attack has increased, especially in those considered mildly affected. You want to be part of such a pattern, ignore/disrespect the disease. The choice is yours.

In brief: Yes

If the attack worsens, you may not be able to breathe.
I would say that has some bad consequences.
