Leonard Nimoy isn’t letting a health battle stop him from enjoying his life.

The “Star Trek” actor recently revealed on Twitter that he’s been diagnosed with COPD, or chronic lung disease. (The COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.)

What is COPD?

“I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. Grandpa says, quit now!!” Nimoy, 82, tweeted. “Smokers, please understand. If you quit after you’re diagnosed with lung damage, it’s too late. Grandpa says learn my lesson. Quit now.”
