My very close friend died after being amputated on the right foot. He lived five years since then. Doctor advised him not to smoke. But he refused. Finally the left leg also started to have blood clotting which led to gangrene. He had to be amputated again. I stayed in the hospital with him all the time. The surgery took eight hours and they wanted to save his left leg. He woke up after some 12 hours. I still remember everything. He promised me that we will quit smoking together once he got out of the hospital. He did not make it, unfortunately. My friend died on Sunday October 8, 2017. The doctor said better not treat a smoker because they make you fail. I don't want to be a loser for my own health. I have to quit now before it is too late and I am on the hospital bed. Sooner or later this will happen to everyone but as a smoker I don't want to suffer more and be the cause of many of the illness I will suffer from. Above all I love my kids and I want to see them growing. My friend left his two kids age ten and eight. If I don't stick to my decision, there is no guarantee that I will not not repeat the same mistake as my friend. I chose cold turkey because I don't want to have even one puff anymore.
