Its my 2nd day and im struggling but Im determined to stop. Im 73 and have been smoking for 60 years, recently the medics found I had cancer of the colon. During the scans they found I had emphysema.
Im going into hospital next Friday, 4th November for the operation and will not be doing much for 4/5 weeks. The maybe chemo or radiation.Im not complaining, its my own fault, I should have listened but those smoke gremlins in my brain told me not to listen to common sense, it will all be OK.
So here am I, now fighting the fight of my life and a fight I will win!!
The surgeon has given me a 65% chance of living past my 78th birthday as long as I can get over the operation and the next few months.
So Im at the keyboard, a few more minute have gone by without smoking, minutes turn into hours, hours turn into days which turn into weeks, Ill be happy in a months time so I can look back and say "That wasn't too hard, was it?" Ill keep you informed as the days go by. David
