It's Mother's day weekend and for many of us thats lost our Mom it's going to be bitter sweet and I know there's a couple of ladies here that it's very fresh and I'm sending you both a huge hug and hugs for everyone including me ,it was 6 years in January that I lost my Mom ,here's a pic of her January 12th with Mason, my daughter took this pic my mom  passed on the 26th January she was on oxygen 7/24 for the last year or so of her life BUT I continued to Smoke never thinking I'd have a problem but when I found out that I have mild copd that's when I finally wised out because I used to push Mom around in the wheelchair dragging the oxygen tank behind me quitting smoking and remaining quit is absolutely hair pulling at times BUT definetly Doable by choosing to never ever pick up another cigarette no matter what is happening in life then you'll be living LIFE on LIFE'S Terms , I am a recovering alcoholic as well when this pic was taken I had less than a Year of sobriety under my belt I was with her when she passed and once the funeral was over boy oh boy did I want a drink BUT I didn't because my Dad needed ME and I needed to be there for him and we can stay Smokefree as well BUT we must choose it and take a deep breath and continue moving forward no matter what. ....
