Hi everybody, my name is Laurie and I am 67 year old male, I have been smoking at least 50 of those years. I tried to stop a couple of times, usually when I had developed a bad cough. I have always been an active person, x T.A. mountain climber and still beat in the shooting season. As an X paramedic of 22 years I have seen the devastation that lung damage can do, and even then I did not stop. I feel healthy but am developing coughs on a more regular basis. I know it makes sense to give up.
