My reason was shortness of breath. I don't want to be gasping for Air. I don't want my Children or Grandchildren to see what I seen with my Mother.
I really need to proofread what I write.
Health ( Brain aneurysm survivor and asthma) and tired of being an addict ... Colleen 414 DOF
Wow Scary. Thank you u are okay. To God be the Glory
Truly God had another plan for me ... I should be dead...but he wasn’t ready to bring me home....
I guess He wasn't. Amen
So thankful for you- and glad you are okay
waking up in the hospital hands tied to the bed on a ventilator with a couple of doctors looking down at me
Glad U are here Carl.
Having the vascular surgeon tell me that he could clear up the arterial blockages to both legs and make those arteries 50 years old again, but that I would need the surgery again if I continued to smoke.......AND that I would probably not be healthy enough for him to do it if I continued to smoke. Left unsaid was that I could actually lose a leg from poor circulation. I LOVE to swim, and walk - and that was my final warning, I believed. I quit two weeks later and never looked back.
Thank God U listened Youngatheart.7.4.12
I don't know how to make a change when I make a mistake when writing Help

I quit 6 days after being diagnosed with COPD. That was almost 10 years ago. I don't know that I would be alive now if I kept on smoking! Marilyn is so right to say that our quits are a gift of Life!
So happy u Quit.
I don't want to die a smoker..said it from day one. Yes, I relapsed at 887 days... between then and now I quit numerous times. Never did get back to the level I was 6/18/16 thank goodness, but the issue is, no matter how many puffs you have that first one is a slipper slope. One puff will take all my quit days away. Period. I am happy to no longer be coughing and hacking and blaming allergies for needing an inhaler and sleeping at night is a major bonus
At least u aren't smoking anymore.
I was tired of being tired. Tired of wasting my money and feeling stupid when I smoked. Tired of hiding my smoking. Tired of the stench. Tired that I was not getting anything out of it. Waste f time. Fear of heart attack, stroke or cancer.
The savings is un real.
constant coughing at night...all night long...virtually every night....
the very day I quit, the cough left...
and never returned.
I had many reasons for wanting to quit, but the final straw for me was being diagnosed with a rare autoimmune disease that attacks the lungs. That was it for me. My body may be trying to destroy itself, but I'm not gonna give it any help!
Good for u .
