Wheezing when I get up in the morning. Coughing during the night. Any thought that smoking is "cool" in the distant past. I thought it might be good to see my grandchildren.
The surprising thing about going through this is the support I've gotten fron people who STILL SMOKE! Many calls while I've been on-air from people who "wish they had what I had. The strength to quit smoking." We'll, they do. You have to make up your mind you're going to do it and stick to it. Thinking about the things you'll lose if you do smoke has helped me. I decided to tell everybody I was quiting so it would be more difficult to start again. Anyway, I'm just entering my third week smoke-free, no gurantee about the future but right now I'm as determined as ever to stay off those things.
