Holy cow, did I dodge a bullet. I'm clean. A few 1 mm nodules, very common. No cancer, etc. 

 

Whew. 38 years of smoking. I can't believe how lucky I am.

 

EFF YOU, CIGARETTES.

Thanks a ton to all of you. When I went for the scan I actually cried a little. I was so scared. 

 

i have to do it again in a year - no big deal. I feel so lucky after all the years of abuse I put my body and lungs through.

 

And for what?

Things began to get better when I realized I would remain quit even if things never got any better.

We say here that it is better to be a nonsmoker with the occasional desire to smoke than a smoker with the constant desire to quit. Marciem
Being successful doesn't mean that you'll never GET to smoke again. It means that you'll never HAVE to smoke again.

Great news!  Look at you-- you've conquered cigarettes and ct scans all in a week.   Can't wait to see what you accomplish in week 2.

Great !  Happy for you Feely. A clear second chance to live a better life, a head start, AWESOME !.


 

Nov 6, 2011 I decided " I had enough with this sh*t "

I quit because I just got tired of the life under a rock, dark and with not enough air to breathe waiting for the day to get crushed!

Alcohol to a quit is like Kryptonite to Superman

Stop, Think and then React. Not React,Stop and then Think

Practice does not make it perfect, makes it permanent. Practice the right things!

Quitting is by far the best decision for the rest of your life.

If a Doctor gives you 6 months to live, would you start living after the first three? Quit now!

" I am a puff away form a pack a day"

Once you stop puffing or having Nicotine in any form, then and only then your symptoms will stop.

I quit with a frozen turkey. Once I felt comfortable with my quit,  I ate it.

Life is such a good teacher, that if you don't learn the lesson it will repeat it to you.
