We understand your concerns

Smoking is bad and 20 to 25 cigarette per day is really bad. Shortnesss of breath is definitely due to sedentey life styles and habits.

Body needs lots and lots of oxygen to maintain itself. We get oxygen through nose and lungs. Hard work needs more oxygen when compared to normal work. Nicotine slowly reduces the capacity of lung oxygen receivers nd slowly kills them, thereby reducing the oxygen absorption.

Result re bronchitis, bronchial asthma or even cancer. You are just 23 and this is the right time to stop smoking because body might take 6 to 12 months o fully repir the body. Then you can be as healthy as before.
Consult a general physician to be doubly sure.
Get well soon.
