Two years ago during a routine medical they found a small polup on my blader. It was a day surgery to remove it and the doc said if I did not quit smoking I would be back in a year with the same thing. The growth was found to be cancer but not old enough to penetrate the skin.
That was my wake up call. I used Champix for 3 mos. and that was the end of my smoking days. I am 67 and started smoking when I was about 12-13 years old.
I can't stand the smell of them or anyone who smokes now. It really is a mind thing. When you are ready it is an easy thing to do.

When we were young kids, my dad taught me and my brother a lifelong lesson. One day while working out in the yard, my dad caught me and my brother puffing on a cigarette butt he had thrown down. My dad had always been a 2 plus a day smoker and didn’t want that bad habit for his kids. So he thought he would teach us a lesson about cigarette smoking. He sat us down in the back yard and told us we were to smoke a pack of cigarettes each. He lit one and gave it to my younger brother and I made up an accuse to go to the restroom. When I came back, my brother was throwing up and my Mother was giving my dad an ear full.

This was 50 years ago and may sound a little cure to today’s standards but this scared the HELL out of both of us. I believe this was one of the most important lessons my dad taught us for my brother and I have not smoked all of our lives. Unfortunately, my dad died 5 years ago of emphysema as a results of his lifelong smoking. Based upon our family history, I believe smoking took 10 years off his life.

I quit in 1982 and was the best thing I ever did for myself. Hang in there, it gets easier. One day at a time....

I quit smoking and drinking 23 years ago and I feel pretty good for 77, U know that years ago the saying was that to preserve meat that it had to be pickeled or smoked. With the years of smoking and drinking I should be good for another 77 or more.
