Yes I'm still here and I'm still a non smoker or at least I believe I am.
For all you guys that may need a little help I smoked for 52 years and I have not got away scott free. I have scaring of the lungs due to smoking also emphysema and have been diagnosed as having COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU I wish I had stopped years ago now.
I would like to say I'm not looking for praise there are many before me that have achieved this milestone. I want to leave this message for all of you that think it's imposible to stop, well here I am proof it can be done.
I joined this forum 3 weeks into my quit and although I was determined to stop smoking the help and support I got here and being able to help others certainly was what got me through.
It's not imposible we brainwash ourselves into thinking it is. But it is difficult, I, and many others know that but if you can have that self belief then maybe, just maybe, you can stop smoking too.
I wish you all a smoke free and healthy life.
