Still around and still keeping going. Another tough week this week, because I have had to cope with first COPD exacerbation. What an idiot I was all those years ago, especially since I always viewed I wouldn't smoke because of living with a father who smoked 80 -100 a day - I still really don't know how he did that not that it's anything to be proud of!!

  • Hi Karen, well done on staying quit. This weather doesnt help c.o.p.d. I know how you feel about if you knew then what you knew then. Like they say you live and learn.


  • Hi Karen. Sorry you are suffering with the cold exacerbation. It must be very hard. But also am so pleased you're doing well on your quit now :) 2 weeks is brilliant already, you've been really strong! Huge well done you!!

    We all wish we'd never started. I can remember thinking I'd definitely not be smoking at 21. Then 30. Then 40......and so it went on. Crazy people we were. Nic is a real baddun. My dad quit at 70 and was so proud! I'm not 70 yet, but now I'm quit I can hope to get there better :). We do it when we can.

    Sending you warm wishes and healing vibes :) Have a good evening :) Nice and smoke free!
