    Good morning all!

    Did (or does) anyone have difficulty breathing with a mask on while being a smoker? I would have severe shortness of breath when I smoked and wore a mask.  Now that I don't smoke, I could wear a mask all day without being short of breath.

    Just curious if anyone else experienced this?

    Another great reason for quitting during COVID! 

    Thanks for sharing lesleyaf.

    Take care

    Hi lesleyaf,

    I didn’t have any problems with shortness of breath but certainly had the awful smell of cigarette smoke lingering in my mask after a cigarette break, certainly don’t miss that stinky cigarette smell!
