I have been a witness to a few people quitting smoking after 20+ years who had not developed lung / pulminary / cancer diseases until after quitting. Is it at all possible that some humans after developing a 20 year tolerance to tobacco smoke have now intergrated these chemicals as part of their normal structre? When the lungs try to so rapidly to repair themselves, can it be to much for some immune systems to handle? I have never seen anything published on this or the Negative effects from QUITTING smoking. Your thoughts are appreciated.
