Helped me a lot when the doctor told me " you can quit smoking or die, your choice ", really made me see the light but still was not easy.

 I've learned 2 things about smoking cigarettes since I started smoking 63 years ago.
1.) It's easy to quit smoking ..(I've done it hundreds of times).
2.) Even non smokers die eventually.

May be, but most of the options that result from Smoking are WAY down on my list of ways to go.

Isn't that a fact Bill. The National Lung Association used to have a saying on their web site" "When you can't breathe, nothing else matters".

  That is a fact, the inability to breath becomes all consuming. Lung disease progresses not at an even pace but the rate of decline increases as time passes. The body tries to make best use of the oxygen it receives by slowing down certain functions such as the hair on legs and arms began to disappear, then fingernails and toenails curved down as bone and tissue at the extremities could not get enough oxygen. Muscles deteriorate and organs slow down. Nurses instantly recognize you by the blue lips and gasping for air, they called us "blue puffers".
   This is not a pleasant way to come to your end, instead it is a long drawn out miserable way to slowly choke to death. It makes you wish for someone or something to bring it to an end sooner.  Fortunately I was one of the rare ones to get a near perfect match for transplant but that is about as likes as most to win the lottery and would a person really like to have their chest cut from armpit to armpit then their lungs scraped from inside their chest wall........I wish everyone would take the consequences seriously !!

Started when I was 13 because I though it was cool.  Luckily never became a heavy smoker and quit for good about 22 years ago.
