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.

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.

photoYou have to want the quit really bad. Tell yourself that you will never smoke again. You have to become a non-smoker, not just a quiter.
