World Asthma Day 2019 – Read About my Diagnosis & Stop Smoking Tips

Today is World Asthma Day and the month of May is National Asthma Awareness Month. 

World Asthma Day is an annual event organized by the Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) to improve asthma awareness and care around the world. I myself was diagnosed 5 years ago after a longstanding persistent cough.

I have recently written an article for Talk Health about my asthma diagnosis and suspected COPD. I have written in detail about what happens during an asthma diagnosis, treatment and tips for moving forward.

If this is something that is relevant to you or someone you know I’d love it if you’d give it a read and perhaps leave a comment there. (You don’t need to log in to comment.)


I have also previously written in detail about my smoking history and how I finally managed to stop smoking, along with 9 tips that may help others who are looking to quit.


If you think you may have asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), I urge you to seek medical advice.

Thanks for reading and please feel free to share and comment on either posts.
