My husband has been diagnosed with copd and his spiro reading has gone from 71 to 66 in 2 years. He is 54 and still smoking and in denial about it all. He doesn't foresee the terrible life he is heading towards. He thinks he will be unhappy for the rest of his life if he has to give up. He's tried before and he got so anxious and angry it nearly wrecked our marriage. I've been trying so hard to get him to give up but I can't force him. Does this reading sound like the copd is advancing fast or slow? At the moment his health is fine - sometimes a mild cough in winter. Any idea how long he's got before things will change?
