Introduction: Smoking in asthma patients is an important factor contributing to worsened control of asthma. Despite increased awareness of the harmful effects of smoking in patients with asthma, a significant proportion of asthmatics remain smokers. Here, we present findings from the Still Fighting for Breath global survey regarding the prevalence of smoking in patients with severe asthma, impact of smoking on asthma control and correlation of smoking with different aspects of quality of life in patients with severe persistent asthma.
