Well recently I went to a clinic because I had a violent cough and felt confused even had a little numbness in my fingers. I shrugged it off as a cold but my doctor told me that I had walking pneumonia and a high fever. I smoke around 1 pack of Marlboro reds a day and I've never had any problems except I lost a lot of weight (including boobs :( and butt) besides that I didn't have any problem. My doctor told me my smoking might have a lot to do with why I have pneumonia and why my body got so ill. I was wondering if smoking can actually be a deciding factor in getting pneumonia. I know it's not a healthy habit and causes cancer and all that fuzz. But can it actually make you get pneumonia? I've never actually heard of smoking causing that. Also I am now 5'4 92 pounds and I usually feel fine except for my chronic infections.
