I used to get athsma every summer, until I started smoking five or six years ago. During all the years I smoked I was never once troubled by seasonal athsma, but now I've been off the fags for six months, my athsma has returned with a vengeance. (Which is weird, but never mind.) I couldn't sleep last night because of it and it's the only reason I'm awake at this time on a Sunday morning. Is anyone else struggling? Does anyone know why it's bad at the moment? I wondered if it might be a side effect of this volcano everyone's going on about, but I don't live in the upper atmosphere.
