Dear Member

You may be allergic to the components in smoke/cigarettes. The allergic reaction might be causing Asthma kind of symptoms. If you have no symptoms when you are not smoking you don't need any investigations. If the breathing is very bad, take Benadryl and request your GP for prescription for Albuterol inhaler.

Bye
