Why do I need to quit

Posted in Getting started 07 Apr 2020

I came home from work the other day and seriously could NOT breathe. It scared the daylights out of me, so much that I took myself to hospital. All good though. Just a huge wake up call. Expecting second grandchild soon so yeah, it’s TIME to quit. Not easy and it’s driving me absolutely insane but I have got to do it. Life is short enough as it is. My Dad is almost 80 with Emphysema and can barely walk. Not for me at 54, NO thank you

    I too took spells of difficulty breathing and found I was borderline COPD. After a year quit my doctor did not hear any difficulty. Quitting smoking will help you to breathe easier in more ways than one. The forum helps, read and learn. You can do this.
