I continued to smoke outside of course but we hadn't smoked in the house for over a decade anyway but in June of 2014 I found out that I have mild copd through a breathing test which scared me into quitting smoking so I found this site and read everything I could find on quitting smoking and Remaining Quit, I learned a wealth of information which strengthened my resolve to take back my life from the clutches of the dreaded nicotine poison, I never thought in a million years that I could quit smoking but on July 14th I'll be celebrating 3 glorious smoke free years of Freedom. Like most people I went through the roller coaster of ups and downs of withdrawals and mood swings, I could be laughing one second and blatting like a baby the next, nobody including my grown children wanted to be around me and didn't think I would quit anyway but the grandchildren were A OK to be around me they were my bright spot and still are, I made it through those rough patches because I finally wised up and realized that there was never going to be a good time to quit smoking that there was always going to be an excuse to quit on another day but another day won't come unless you decide now is the time so prepare for your quit and bite the bullet, pick a quit date and join the ranks of being an Exer then once you start reaping the benefits of being FREE, that's when we all need to be Vigilant and protect the best gift that any of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE!!!!!!  there's definitely life after cigarettes and it's super fantastic to be able to go anywhere, anytime, whenever, wherever and however without wondering where to sneak off to suck on a disgusting cancer stick.
