Time to try to inspire

Finally after 52 years of smoking quite heavily I quit with the love and support of Ex. I was 66 at the time and I am now 70.  I have "Bad Emphysema", so they say.  I was in ICU for respiratory failure in August.  You would never know it now.  I garden, rake leaves, walk 30 minutes everyday and do yoga at a local fitness center. (Hard class.)  I am on my way out the door to go to the woods and dig up a honey suckle to take to my daughter-in-law.  I will plant it in the woods just behind her house and beautiful pool. She loves the fragrance.  You are never too old to quit smoking. I love my new life and the new me. If I can quit smoking, you can quit smoking.  I promised my self no matter what I wanted, no matter what I was feeling a cigarette would never again be the solution.  It is tough especially for the first 3 or 4 months and it is a journey.  I just keep growing even now.  God bless and have a beautiful smoke-free day.
