The older we get the more we realize it's vital to take Extra good care of ourselves and quitting smoking should be at the top of the list of things to do for our health, family but especially for our quality of living that's why I decided to bite the bullet and stopped playing Russian Roulette with my life, my husband quit 2 and a half months before I did because of a horrible cough that scared us especially at night because at times he'd cough so hard that when he stopped I'd be scared that he wasn't breathing so I'd be ready to get up and check anyway after x rays and a ct scan we found out he has mild emphysema so whew he was already quit when he found that out and will be celebrating 4 yrs on the 25th of April. It certainly wasn't easy for him but his health was much more important than the tobacco and then it was my turn to get a scare when I had a breathing test done which showed mild copd so I wised up and threw the yuckies (cigarettes) away I wanted and still want to be around for many more years to enjoy my family and friends especially the grandchildren I want the best quality of living that I can have, whatever reason you have for quitting smoking just know there's no better gift that anyone of us will ever give ourselves which is the gift of LIFE, it's way past time to take back your life if you haven't already and if you're going through a rough patch know that we're here for you and it will get better but the only way out is through but boy oh boy it's so worth it to be Free so hang tough because there's definetly Life after Cigarettes!
