Symptom #2: Coughing

Coughing is one of the earlier symptoms that appears when someone is beginning to develop emphysema. This is a similar cough to that which smokers have, often referred to aptly as a smoker’s cough.

The main difference here is that the cough coming from emphysema will not disappear if you stop smoking. If you are smoking so much that you are experiencing a chronic cough, then it’s a wise idea to cut back or stop before that cough becomes permanent.
