I am a 44 y/o male, 22 years in the Army, smoked for 27 years, and prayed and quit smoking three weeks ago. I didn't pray to quit smoking, I prayed to eliminate the desire to smoke. Which worked much better for me. I tried everything to quit, you name it, I did it. But this time was different. I actually prayed for this and stayed with my prayers and it worked.
On another note, now that I do not have the desire to smoke any more, I have such tightness in my chest, I can't even walk a flight of stairs while at work. I'm completely winded as well. I went to the hospital and they told me it's either a viral infection in my lungs or anything else we'll have to rule out with a CT scan. I received an inhaler, which helped me out today but the coughing is pretty tough on me. My throat is sore as well.
Any suggestions from the group?
