Good job! I was watching the View and Whoopi said that she tried everything to quit and that yesterday it was a year of her quitting smoking and she said what finally made her quit. She ran into a brother and sister who both have Cystic Fibrosis (when you have trouble breaking and have to go on a machine that shakes you to break up the mucous). The little boy was a little older then the sister and he was trying to make her not afraid of the machine and he turned to Whoopi and said I wish I was like you and could breathe normal. She said when he said that to me I thought I can't give this poor child my lungs , but I can stop smoking because all he wishes is that he had my normal lungs. I remembered how she was always saying she wished she could quit and she said she quit cold turkey something she could never do before. I'm proud that you are down to only 10, my dad has COPD and has had 4 respiratory failures and we go through hell everytime seeing him on a ventilator, watching brown syrup type substance come out of his lungs. Thats something no family member should have to go through and watch as their loved one lies there with their tongue sticking out and watching them suck up brown junk out of your loved ones body especially 4 times and pray that he gets the good respiratory doctor on call that week or hope he makes it another week till the good one out of the group is on call. Good for you for getting healthier! God bless you can beat this!

Great News, fight the urge, you can do it. I went cold turkey 3 years ago, after Cancer Diagnoses, it was not Lung Cancer, however, I filled with fluid as a result, and got a taste of what it would be like trying to breath through a cocktail type straw. It was by far, the scariest thing I have ever gone through, I was not scared to have cancer, but struggling so hard to breath, not knowing I would get a next breath.
