Thank you Roadhappy.  I'll gladly accept all the encouragement I can get.

I'm doing well. I don't plan on smoking any more. This is probably the umpteenth time I've tried to stop. It's the best I've ever done. I came home yesterday. Should be back to work Monday. Dr. thought TIA at first because I had minimal issues, and recovered from that quickly. MRI showed full blown stroke.

Scary stuff!  Glad to hear you are headed back to work Monday.  Curious if you had been taking aspirin prior to the stroke.

I was taking aspirin when I had my first stroke. They put me on Plavix then, so that's what I had been taking. Now I'm on both.

I was on Plavix and aspirin when I developed 2 ulcers, collapsed and spent 3 days in the hospital after the ambulance pumped 4 units into me. I'm sure you have read where Plavix is linked to a higher risk of stroke even though it is given to stroke victims...... your milage may vary of course..Hope you continue to do well.

Thank you, but if I did that, I'd be virtually black and blue:)

 8) It's a one Day or should I say every second of the day thing at first! It gets better as the time goes by March 30 this year will be six yrs., never had a clue I'd made it.  ;D The benefits of quitting are worth it!  :))
Don't ever give up!! keep pushing toward the goal!!!

I've smoked for 41 years.  On 12/30/17, my DW and I came down with respiratory infections (she has never smoked).  Needless to say,  I didn't feel like smoking.  When I started to feel like smoking again, it had been five days without, so I decided to quit.  It's now been eleven days, and I've got a long way to go, but so far so good!

My 83 year old sister smokes two packs a day and has forever.  Tough old gal for sure. Nagging her to quit endangers your life so I keep my mouth shut....lol
