WOW! I just wanted to say congrats to all of you who posted you'd quit smoking. It truly is a great thing to do, for yourself, loved ones, and your body.
To give you some inspiration - I KNOW that anyone can quit smoking once they decide thats it. ( I don't mean this in a mean way towards those that still smoke, just that when the right motivation comes along, something that makes you want to quit heart and soul it can happen). My grandfather is 88 years old, he started smoking at 12 - and smoked daily. There were times he had two lit cigarettes one in his hand one in his ashtray. Papa smoked 2-3 packs a day. He stopped smoking last July and hasn't picked up a cigarette since. You CAN do it. Don't let anyone tell you to quit, or do it for anyone else but you.
Also, when he came down with pneumonia in february the doctors all said if he had still been smoking - he'd have died - his lungs were that bad off.
I wish all of you the best!
