I am on day 9 of being smoke free. I've quit quite a few times in the last year but never made it more then a month before I started smoking again. I started smoking when I was just 14 and now at 29 I can feel the harm smoking all these years has caused. I've been so short of breath for quite a awhile now and feel a heaviness in my chest which I know is from smoking. On march 24 of this year my dad passed away from small cell lung cancer, caused by smoking. He was only 61. I refuse to smoke another cigarette and let his death be in vain. I still needed my dad and cigarettes killed him, I refuse to let my children see me die from cigarettes...they are the devil.

I avoid smokers but if I have to be around one I will munch on sunflower seeds to keep myself distracted.
