Message:  I also smoked for over 30 years and it took a blocked artery(and a catheter!)to get my attention. I'm also an ex-drunk and quitting smoking was harder. I very seldom have an urge to drink but the cigarette would be the easist to start again but I quit in 1990. I don't judge others who still smoke because a lot of people I love, including my wife, still do it.

For what it's worth, here's my story. Since I was in the hospital, I had 24 hours off them which was a blessing. For 3 months after that, I walked around with an unlit cigarette in my mouth and Lana says I was a raging donkey receptacle. But everything you hear is true. Food tastes wonderful, the cough dissipates, and what I liked was the lack of stress trying to find places where I could smoke and avoiding people who didn't.

I smoked Pall Malls for mostt of my life so I was a hard case.

Lee, i will ditto Roy. If I can do it, you can do it.
