I am 42 years old have had a heart attack when I was 40 and was just in the hospital for coughing up blood ,alot of blood. I thought I had cancer. After a few tests and three days in the Hospital It was said I had bursted a bronkiel artery while coughing in my sleep.
I retired from the Navy when I was 40, I have two teenage boys I want to watch grow up. I have alot to live for. I stopped smoking cold turkey on December 1st 2007. Its only been 11 days for me and the craving seem to be worse this week lol. But I have no plans to start up again. I do consider myself a nonsmoker now.
It was a big wake up call thinking I had lung cancer. I dont want to ever feel that way again.
