just thought I would check on with you guys and let you know my story..
On the 24 June I was diagnosed COPD.... Not surprising really given I have smoked for approx 36 years, 20/30 a day for the last say 20 years or so
To confirm the diagnosis my GP asked me to go for an X-ray, this scared me.. I couldn't cope with what they might find.. Made worse when the lady at X-ray informed me they needed to rule everything else out ( cancers etc)... The X-ray was the morning of 26th June it was awful, I couldn't breathe while waiting to be called, and left the X-ray dept twice out of sheer fear.. While in X-ray I had a severe panic attack".... Oh my was it awful...
Since that day I have never picked up a cigarette, had no cravings.. No nothing.. It's a really strange experience...
If ever you doubt your quit, just ask yourself would you be happy letting anyone look at your lungs... It's all it took for me
Everybody keep going you can all do this
