Reduce the number of cigarettes smoked, switch to electronic vaporizers, do not smoke when you don't particularly want to smoke. But this is not interesting advice. An interesting tip is to enroll in a choir studio. Sometime in my youth, in the journal "Science and Life" I saw statistics, from which it followed that regular singing is extremely beneficial for the lungs and even partially removes the harm from smoking. Perhaps, of course, modern medicine refutes all this, but I believe that you need to sing. And I sing.
