    Congratulations sssal. You made one of the best decisions of your life. I imagine that you find a huge difference in your breathing, and that must be a huge relief. i havent been short of breath since quitting smoking. I am not as concerned about surviving the virus as I would have once been. My husband smoked while I quit cold turkey and then he followed. My daughter also. So proud of them and of all who choose to better their lives.

    That's amazing sssal 10 months is quite a long time, and you should feel proud of yourself. Keep up the commitment even if you are with a smoker. I would guess you might have tried to reason with him. He will come around eventually, but it is important to look out for yourself in this regard. Well done.
