Ok just a quick post of encouragement.
I quit back in October after smoking 20 a day for 30 years. I went to see the smoking cessation councillor today for the first time because i was curious about a lung capacity/condition test. I did the test and apparantly my lungs are NORMAL !! Now i dont understand how this can be with my smoking record, However all i can say is that if my lungs have recovered in such a short space of time its worth saying so to everybody just starting on thier quits.
Dont get me wrong im not smug or complacent or anything its been bloody hard and im nowhere near through it yet. But this test has given me further motivation and i hope it will encourage you too..
GOOD LUCK TO ALL WITH YOUR QUITS AND SEE YOU IN THE PENTHOUSE
