This is me. It seems the issue really became a big problem after I had my thyroid removed in 2009.
Yeah some people are just plain rude. It helps to know that they literally have nothing better to do, which is sad.
I forgot to post Tuesday and Wednesday, but, 15 days! I have a lot more energy and don't get as tired after work since i quit smoking, never been better!
That's wonderful Jim, on your third week too. Congrats and keep it going.
My mother died of lung cancer( from smoking) at Roswell cancer center,in buffalo n.y. some years ago. They have a hall of fame, pictures of famous people who died of cancer, mainly lung cancer. I kept on smoking , a real stupid decision but that's the way things were back then. The doctor who operated on her pulled out a cigarette in the elevator, so I joined him. The tobacco industry had, at that time, a very powerful lobby, much the same as drug company's have today. It's cost me dearly both in heart problems and copd. Nicotine is a drug and it's tough to get off of it. Try your best, go to a smoking meeting if possible. Best of luck.
At that time tobacco company's sent salesmen into our Air Force barracks to give out packs of Pell Mells free! Most took them as most smoked. It got me really into them. A different time for sure.
Forgot to post here again, been busy at work. 17 days. Merry Christmas all.
Merry Christmas Jim. Happy for you kicking the habit! Almost 3 weeks, impressive. Keep it going.
Looks like I may have been right:
Jim, never look back. Your efforts to kick this habit will be rewarding for years to come. Congrats on the last 17 days.
Boooom! I knew these were bad news. Now they are exploding people, better Just to stop.
19 days. This is a cake walk at this point. Thank you all for the sternness, and merry Christmas! (A day late I know, oh well)
Well done - big smile over here. Keep it going.
Two thumbs up Jim!
How many days now Jim?
22? 23? I've lost count at this point. That's the greatest feeling ever for me!
I'm posted on the 21st... I wonder what happened to it? I must have forgotten to press the button.
Cool! Glad you're enjoying the absence of cigarettes Jim.
Once I lost count 'i knew I had beat it.
Happy New Year as a non-smoker tomorrow! One less resolution that you have to make Mase is right, I'm not sure what year I quit any more....
I quit smoking seventeen years ago today. Unfortunately, my wife still smokes, probably less than 12 cigarettes a day. She goes outside to do it, but when she comes back inside, to me the smell is incredibly bad. It's awful. She washes her hands and face, then uses a body spray to mask the odor, but ugh. I can't ignore it, the smell is just too pervasive.
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2007 and had a thyroidectomy. After that, I became really hypersensitive to cigarette smoke. I cannot be around a smoker at all. Changes in the laws about smoking have made life more tolerable. I hate to sound like a weenie, but the effects of cigarette smoke on me are real and significant. Before smoking was banned in public places, I couldn't go to a bar. I haven't been in a casino in over a decade, which is too bad because I like playing blackjack.
I often think about what those seventeen years have done to my wife's lungs. At any time she could have quit, just gone through a few months of discomfort and annoyance, and now it would be just a memory of some inconvenience and irritation. It is really a shame.
Those of you that still smoke should think about that.
