it's 4am in California. At 10:15 I will be leaving for Thornton Hospital in LaJolla to have the precancerous cells removed from my esophagus by burning them from the inside out. this will be the first of numerous procedures.
smoking weakens the valve that keeps your stomach acid in your stomach.
I will not have eaten for over 16 hours by the time I get home this afternoon. I will be enjoying no solid food for the next week.
you can quit smoking any time.
