I started a serious attempt to quit in February 2012 and havent smoked one single cigarette for six weeks now and thank goodness for I now have a cold! In the past I was always carted off to hospital with my breathing and ended up on steroids, antibiotics and oxygen - not to mention time off work! The last trip in there made my mind up - Im not smoking any more! With this cold THIS TIME - Yeah, I am a bit "chesty" but no problems with being carted off to hospital - touch wood! I will keep you posted! I am NEVER going back to being a smoker! I feel so much better! My breathing has improved, my skin is better, I have more energy and Ive even noticed the "age spots/liver spots" are beginning to disappear!
