Wow! Great to hear this Michael. I've never been a smoker...

...but my mother smoked like a chimney since I was a baby and I hated it with a purple passion.

To this day I can't stand the smell (I'm 56 now) but I understand how addicting it can be.

So I applaud your efforts at quitting and am happy knowing you'll not only be around a lot longer, but you'll be a lot healthier too.

My poor aunt (who smoked for 30 years but had quit 20 years ago) just died, but the last 10 to 15 years of her life were so bad due to having ruined her lungs with cigarettes, that it was hardly worth living.

She was on oxygen 24/7 and could hardly walk across a room.

So keep on quitting...We need good people like you to live long, healthy lives!
