I have been participating in a website for COPD and hear story after story of folks who are disabled from emphysema, many of them are racing the clock for a lung transplant! These unfortunate people are not only in their 70s or even 60s many of them are in their 50s and even 40s! I pray for them and their families because they physically suffer tremendously for long periods of time and are almost always financially devastated! I am so blessed to have caught my diagnosis at a relatively early stage that I can still take control of my life and prevent most if not all of this! If you are still battling yourself to quit smoking, I urge you to remember that we're not just talking about LIFE but also about QUALITY OF LIFE! Please DECIDE to quit! I don't want this to happen to you and your family! If you already have COPD then the quit is the single most effective action you can take to care for yourself! I hope with all that's in me that you will quit today! Thank You for listening! Praise the LORD if you have quit without getting a smoke related illness!
