Having asthma doesn't mean you have to stop doing the things you enjoy, as long as you use common sense and look after your health. Most people find that asthma is easy to control by avoiding known 'triggers', and by using an inhaler prescribed by a doctor.
As with other long-term conditions, it's important to look after your general health, eat a good diet and take moderate exercise if you can. If you are worried about exercise setting off an asthma attack, talk to your doctor about what exercise you can do and how to use your inhaler to prevent an attack.
Make sure you take any prescribed medication, such as an inhaler or steroid tablets, as directed by your doctor, and don't stop taking the medicines without checking with your doctor, even if you feel well.
