I have smoked for over 40 years but after attack last sunday I have quit smoking and never will again smoke.
I felt I was drowning in my own fluids Doc told me another 5 minutes late and I would of been a goner. So I have made a life style choice never to smoke again. I even carry a mask just encase I end up in a smoking environment. I as or still am a bit traumatized from it. Hard to believe your lungs can just stop taking in air but believe me they can. I felt my eyes bulging out my head felt like it was ready to explode. The ambulance man was trying to put masks on my face but I was in such a panic to get air inside me I was pulling them off. I think I then started drifting off through lack of air. I always had a fear of drowning or choking because of past being winded and chocked as a child ,it was a nightmare come true.
So all you smokers out there really think about what can happen it is not a pleasant feeling fighting to breathe and I feel so much better in myself. Fags are a poison there is no doubt about it.
Bye for now. Dodo.
