I was out of town this week, for work, and ran into an old friend. Turns out that he had quit smoking a couple months ago.. But, like Des M. , it was not his choice. Less than an hour after his last smoke, he was in the hospital gasping for life.. A severe, and sudden, onset of C.O.P.D. ! I, like him, had no idea it could come on like that.. One day, you are active, working, happy smoker, and the next, you can't even get up a flight of stairs ! His doctor said, if he had quit, even a month before, he could have gotten better, but now it's too late.. So, if you are thinking about quitting, or already into your quit, just do it, and do it now. Like Des M. says, do it while it is still your choice ! Because,, apparently, it can be like that last straw. No warning.. That was one too many, and life as you knew it is over !!
