    Hi Tom I hope your asking because you have quit, ok yes they can, infact the Cillia starts to repair itself within days and breathing will improve as well, what you do have to take into consideration is that if you have smoked heavily for years and have COPD then it cannot cure but what it can do is improve your breathing capacity and hopefully stop it getting any worse which will help your life expectancy.

    How long have you smoked for and how old are you.

    Theirs nothing you can do to improve your health as good as quitting the cigs

    Yes if your not a heavy smoker to some degree permanent damage hasn’t been done I seen studies shown that once a regular smoker stops smoking the lungs improved by healing by over like 70% after they quit smoking
