New quitter here, male aged 61 & smoked since I was 13.
Been planning to quit for a while & was waiting for the right time to do it.
The right time came on Feb 10 2014 at 2.30pm when I suffered a Heart Attack. I have absolutely no desire to ever smoke again after surviving that !
Been very easy to quit after seeing the carnage that smoking causes, I am not out of the woods yet by a long shot, BUT I got away with it..........Just.
My occupation is/was a HGV Driver, this is now debatable if i will get my HGV License back, I will need to pass a treadmill test first, my consultant says no chance.
So, there you have it, looking on the plus side I am still alive & at last I quit the Fags !!!
