After smoking for 37 years I quit on 4-11-19. It's been a little over 18 months that I've been tobacco free and I feel real good. I am no spring chicken as I am a month away from turning 64. I have plenty of age related aches and pains but by quitting smoking I have alleviated many other ailments. To me the difference is stunning, almost miraculous. Starting about 5 years before I quit I started getting severe headaches. At first maybe once every couple of weeks. For the last year before I quit I was getting the headaches daily and sometimes multiple times per day. I went to the Dr. and even saw a specialist. I had about 10 different prescriptions and nothing worked. Pollen allergies started acting up when I was never bothered before. I started waking up at night short of breath. I started to get nervous. Oh yeah, I've also got 3 or 4 stents in my heart. I started to think maybe my cardiologist was on to something when he told me to quit smoking 14 years earlier. I don't know why but I liked smoking. One morning I woke up after a troublesome night of difficult breathing, hit an inhaler and decided that it was time to quit. I knew a big snow storm was going to hit that night so I purposely didn't buy any cigarettes. The storm hit and it was too crappy to drive in so I smoked my last cigarette and never looked back. Almost immediately the headaches stopped as did the pollen allergies. I have not been short of breath since quitting either. My lungs cleared up after about 4 days and now I can walk further than I could 10 years ago. Instead of having to rest to catch my breath, I have to rest my sore knees for a while. I need replacements. Been putting it off. I've always been active but now I have way more energy and can work, walk and hunt better than I could in a long time. I've been wanting to say this for a while now, not to brag or tell you how wonderful I feel but maybe to inspire someone else who is having difficulty with smoking. Anyone else with success stories?
