I was a very heavy drinker, well let's be honest, I was an alcoholic. Of course, this meant I was also a very heavy smoker, up to 40 cigarettes a day while I drank all day. A few weeks ago I had a massive flare-up of inflammation and my immune system basically quit on me. While I was in hospital I was diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Bronchitis. I thought it was just a smoker's cough. Since then I have done an alcohol detox in hospital. We were not allowed to smoke, so were given patches for the 4 days. Giving up the grog wasn't too hard so I figured I want to give up the ciggies as well. They are costing me $230 a week which is madness on my very low income!.
