I had doubled my lung capacity before quitting. I will never be rid of emphysema completely but my condition has been downgraded to “mild” and I rarely need inhalers anymore. Although I would have to agree that this is somehow amplified in the gay(men) community. I know some of them to be good people on other occasions but after that, I don’t really want anything to do with them. It’s sad and ironic because it is a community that is fighting to be accepted and gain equal treatment but they do discriminate amongst themselves. Apple buyers happily buy something known not to be compatible with everything else.
