I'm an athlete, more precisely a sprinter and I've been smoking cigarettes for a month now.
I feel really bad about it, mostly because I'm under age and want to be a professional runner when older. Since I'm not yet addicted I feel like it's the right time to stop. Today, I've smoked my last cigarette and sworn to myself that it will stay the last one.
Now I just wonder how much would it take for me to gain my lung capacity back to normal and how
much would it take to get my lungs clear from all the carbon monoxide and stuff?
I'm curious how much time would it take to achieve that when the doctor looks at my lungs he won't actually be able to tell that I was a smoker? Again keep in mind that I've been doing it for
a month only and I didn't smoke every day, I smoked like only 2-3 cigarettes a WEEK except for special occasions like birthdays, but the maximum number of cigarettes I've smoked in a day is 4..
Please don't write pointless stuff like "Oh, you shouldn't have started smoking in the first place.." because I fully understand it and comments like that won't help me now that I've already done it..
Please help, I'll highly appreciate it..
Thanks in advance :)
