As I was recovering from the insertion of my second stent my cardioligist came into my room to discharge me. He started talking and telling me about the medications I had to take and how I needed to start an exercise program. Then he dropped THE bomb. I needed to stop smoking or buy some more life insurance.
Looking back I cannot for the life of me figure out why 14 years ago when he put the first stent in I did not quit. I pray that I did not put off quitting too long.
