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!
