: I have always been in pretty good shape. I was wandering how long it will take for me
: to recover from this smoke I used to inhale. Can I ever get into the shape of a person

Unfortunately, tar effects your lungs permanently. This does not mean you can not attain
a reasonable (or even excellent) fitness level. I would say that if you excercise properly,
you should be able to get in to shape at almost the same rate as a person who hasn't smoked,
providing that you are no longer smoking.
