I had intense back pain for weeks resulting in a severe heart attack at age 51. I had 90% blocked artery and had a stent put in. I have no family history of heart issues, hence, it was likely due to lifestyle. I smoked 30+ cigarettes a day and drank alcohol every day. Specialist wasn't concerned about alcohol or diet. He said "I'm not concerned about how much nicoteine you need to support you giving up but whatever you do, do not put any smoke back into your body again. You were very, very lucky." It was so incredibly painful and the thought of that pain, and the visual of how blocked my artery was, stopped me straight away. I am using NRT .
