I have been smoke free since September 15th 2006. After 15 years of smoking. I think it is so funny when people ask me how I quit. I tell them Gastral Esophageal Reflux Disease and I highly recommend it. Yup, constant pain in my chest and throat got me over that pesky hump lol. After years of trying the patch, gum, sun flower seeds all it took was a few months of GERD and I quit cold turkey!
Hey, if your going to have a disease that takes away everything you love (beer, cigaretts, wine, tomato sauce and other good foods) you may as well have a sense of humor about it.
