I had my last cigarette on December 14th, 2008. I had bad asthma issues, but I never let that get in the way of me smoking. I didn’t start smoking until I was almost 19 years old. I had just found out my cousin was murdered and I got really depressed. So what better way to relieve stress then with some nicotine.
With having breathing problems I was always getting broncular pneumonia 3 to 4 times a year, and everytime I was put on steroids to help strengthen my lungs, each time the doctor told me I better quit or I will end up dying sooner then I should. Well that didn’t really effect me. My father in law even passed away in 2007 from lung cancer. I wanted to quit, but it is hard when you have done something for so long.
I tried to quit once before when I was pregnant with my daughter, but as soon as we moved away from my family when she was a month old I couldn’t take it no more and I started smoking again. This time is the longest I have not smoked for, and I have no plans to pick up and start again.
On December 8th, 2008 my father in law would have been 58, I ended up going into the ER, because I had a bad boil on my butt and it hurt. I was also battling bronchitis at the time, so I was having problems breathing. Well they put me on some medicine, I do not recall what it was, but it made cigarettes taste nasty. So on December 14th of 2008 I smoked my last smoke, and I do not regret it. I can breath better now, and I feel a lot better. Now only if my husband could kick the
I want to let everyone know who is trying to kick this habit, is it is possibly you just have to have will power and strength.
