My Quit:
I am married with three boys, all grown, and had smoked 2 1/2 packs for approximately 41 years and 1/2 pack for 3 years. I wanted to quit but couldn't stop those 10 a day. On 4-10-14 I couldn't breathe and was taken to the Hospital. They found I was in Arial Fibrillation instead of Sinus. I quit smoking that day and am still smoke free. I am much better now with medicines and probably owe my future health to that scare. Thankfully I didn't have COPD so maybe smoking only ultralights and cutting down had saved my lungs. I am very grateful that I was given a second chance at a healthier life and the freedom of a nonsmoker.

Advice:
Don't let fear be the reason you don't quit or stay quit. I was afraid of failing and I know now you can't succeed or fail if you don't try.
