Hi! Emphysema is caused by smoking. Having emphysema means some of the air sacs in your lungs are damaged, making it hard to breathe. Most cases of emphysema are caused by cigarette smoking. Cigarette smoke reaches deep into the lungs and causes permanent damage. Because, you have emphysema from cigarettes, the best way to stop your lung damage is to quit smoking as soon as possible. It's never too late to quit smoking. The number one treatment for emphysema is to quit smoking and stay away from smoky places. By quitting smoking, you can slow down emphysema.
Emphysema gets worse over time if you continue to smoke or breathe dirty air. The damage doesn't stop until you stop smoking and stop breathing dirty air. By quitting smoking, you can't undo the damage that's already done, but you can protect your lungs from any more damage. Good luck!

Sounds like you do have asthma. I can't run without wheezing either, i use an inhaler but only when i need to. If you started smoking when you were 16 and you are now 18, i would say that you have not damaged things to much. It's when you smoke for years that bad things happen. I know, everyone in my family has some kind of problem either from smoking or drinking.
Your lungs will remain normal as long as you don't introduce anything nasty into them. It is hard to avoid some places tho.
I never had asthma, now i do. Oh well.... Some people never have allergies, then they do.
I would say that you have nothing life threatening going on, but i still say you have asthma.
