Linda661 Posted August 26, 2006 Share Posted August 26, 2006 Looks like this is the right forum for this (?) When it comes to the smoking issue with LC, does the public tend to condemn an ex-smoker as well? I'm asking this because I was taught and have read that after about 10 years, the lungs repair themselves to where they are the same as someone who never smoked -- at least for the "risk" of LC. Heck, even the medical insurance costs out here will drop to a non-smoker rate after 12 months of being smoke-free. People seem surprised at dx when they never smoked, but if this information is at all true, why don't people seem surprised when it's an ex-smoker?
