Smoking and Lung Disease

For many years I worked in a cigarette manufacturing company where as a management staff, I was entitled to two free bundles of 12 pack cigarettes each week. I became a chain smoker until my father, who was also a chain smoker, was diagnosed with advanced emphysema. His lungs had hardened to such a stage he could hardly breathe. He died soon after. His death shocked me so much, I immediately quit smoking.

That's scary! My grandfather had emphysema as well, and he died from it. Watching him go through that was what convinced me to quit, too. It was a struggle for many years, but I've finally made it past the six month mark. Here's to many years of being quit!

Congrats Poppy for quitting smoking on time; for all those still struggling to quit, I encourage you with the immortal words of the Classical poet Virgil: "Possum Estes Possuit" (They are able because they believe they are able)
