Turned 58 yesterday. Quit somoking 30 years ago almost to the day.
Even though I knew better, I still smoked aafter I got out of Dental School. I was so bad that I kept an ash tray out in the hall and would take a drag when I went from one room to the other in my office.
How did I quit?
I had a bad case of bronchitis (got it at least once a year when I smoked). Went across the street to my medical doctor buddy for some medicine.When I was seated in the waiting room, noticed a poor guy sitting on the other side of the room. Pale, thin and breathing oxygen from a tank he carried with him.
Got back to see the doc. He told me that if I didnt quit smoking, I would be like the guy in the waiting room (who was 45 years old) in just a few years.
Took my pack of Winstons out of my pocket, threw them in the trash can. Doc fished them out and gave them to me, saying that I would just buy another pack after I felt better. Told him that was BS and threw the cigs away again. Never smoked another one since.
People ask how I quit, I tell them that the Lord took them away (thats the only explanation I have)
Went from 2 packs/day for 12 or so years to cold turkey and never smoked one since (although I'll admit there are some times I still want one)
Good luck ..please quit.
