5 years ago I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. Breast cancer. I had the full meal deal.
two separate surgeries, chemo, radiation and the drug Tamoxifen for five years. I've been blessed with five years of extra life!! Today is my mammogram, this always gets me a bit jittery. I'm pretty sure I'm ok, but still anxious to know results. During that time I stopped smoking for two 3 month periods. Those were the longest quits I had. I am trying so hard to be successful this time around. The people here at EX have blessed me with great support. Every day I read inspiring messages of those who are making and keeping their quits, whether they are newbies or Elders. I will continue to do my best here to suceed. Smoking isn't the answer it never was. I am now proud to say I am a non-smoker. My quit is very early, but am taking steps to get through the week. Onward and Upward, right? Thanks everyone for being here for me!
