Neville (60 years ) - Nationality Canadian - 10 October 2001 - Share on: Facebook - Twitter
"Five years ago I was diagnosed with lung cancer. I had been a smoker for nearly thirty years, but at the time of my diagnosis I had not smoked for five years. Quitting was the best thing I ever did, but I should have quit earlier. If I had, I might not have gotten cancer. Now I have only one and a half lungs, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (Chronic bronchitis, plus asthma, and emphysema) I can't do the things I once enjoyed because I get out of breath so easily. I have had to stop working. Smoking made an invalid out of me. It is the biggest regret of my life; that I took up smoking. Like most others who start in their teen years, I did it to impress my peers. To look older, to be "cool". Now, no one is impressed by someone smoking; I sure don't want to look older any more, and being "cool" today is being someone who does NOT smoke. My advice to those who are not smokers; don't ever start. To those who do smoke and want to quit, you have a tough job to do; quitting smoking is probably the hardest thing you will ever do. I tried and tried many times over the course of 20 years, and finally managed to quit. Going to something like Smokenders is good, you learn many strategies for quitting. I went, and although I didn't quit at the time, the things I learned helped me tremendously when I finally quit. Prayers to all of you who are in the grips of this terrible and deadly habit."
