The Palmolive Bottle Demonstration

<t>I'm relatively new here.....i quit one week and 4 days ago now.....and i was really affected by this posting. are there any accurate studies on how much ex-smokers can clear out the gross build-up in their lungs? will it ever be like we didn't smoke, or can we, at best, look for some improvement?...
