Ten years without cigarettes

This May it will be ten years without cigarettes. I came down with emphysema after 35 years of smoking. I quit Cold Turkey because I was having trouble breathing. Emphysema killed my grandmother, but she smoked until the day she died. My emphysema seems to have gotten better some since I quit smoking.

Good for you @Blue65 I quit 5 1/2 years ago come April. I smoked for over 50 years and am on oxygen now, working to strengthen my lungs and my mind.

Well done to you @Blue65 and to everyone else. I will have been 12 years without late this year. Was a horrible smoker till I was 39. Pack a day person from 14 or so. Best thing I ever did for my health was give up the cancer sticks.

My sister is trying to quit. She says she’s super stressed right now so she said for now she’s not gonna try to quit. Just for now. She’s stressed cos her car is broke down and she can’t get out of this holler and cos my dad is so messy the whole farm looks like a trash heap and she can’t deal with that. (She’s a neat freak). My house is pretty clean though.

Glad to hear @Blue65 I am a schizophrenic and I started after 12 years of my first symptoms. I used to smoke a pack a day. I am trying to quit now with Chantix 2mg. I quit 3 months ago, and didnt smoke at all for straight 3 months. But started again. Now again on Chantix and trying to quit while being on Clozapine. BTW again, best wishes from me for a healthy life ahead.
