Just keep trying


Just keep trying

Well I’m 47, been smoking since I was 14. You know, the cool thing to do. I have tried about 4 or 5 times to give up. Each time was a little bit easier and a little bit longer. Until in July of 2013 I was sent to a specialist about a growth on my chest which I was told had to come out in case it was cancerous...well that scared me so I made up my mind then that I was going to stop. I made my stop date the 4th of August and haven't had a smoke since and I can now play with my 6 yr old and my 10yr old without thinking I’m going to have a heart attack... so if you have tried and started up again don't give up, just keep trying.
