Find the Power to Stop Smoking

Marlboro Cigarettes

Smoking is one thing many do to relief stress, it’s also a silent killer of many. Before I decided to stop smoking cigarettes 4 years ago, I had to hit rock bottom, and I had to want to quit. I have asthma, so smoking caused me to have more problems with my breathing. While, I had quit many times before, something always got to me and I would start again.

In the past 5 years I have had two people close to me die as a result of smoking, both passed due to lung cancer, both were told the reason was smoking. In 2007, we lost my father in law to small cell lung cancer, this was extremely hard on all of us. While I turned to smoking to help get me through it, a year after we lost him I kicked the habit. I would like to say cold turkey; however, I got extremely sick, I ended up in the hospital and after I got out, I couldn’t stand the taste or the smell.

I have now been smoke free for 4 years as of December 14th. I can breath better, and I know my chances of dying due to smoking are slimmer than before.

I will not lie, after 4 years I do still have those urges to smoke. However, my willpower to not pick up another cigarette is stronger then those urges. If you’re wanting to quit so you to can add years on to your life there are support groups out there, that will help you kick the habit.

Don’t let cancer take your life too soon, like it did my father in law, and my grandpa.
