Smoked from 17 til ~70

Vic, Mom smoked from 17 til ~70. Her 2nd husband, non-smoker, lived with lung cancer for years, but she puffed through it all fine. Then she got a bad cough one day, thought it was something worse, and quit cold. Like you, she says she still wants one, but her Will of Iron has never weakened. She's breathing fine now at 92.... and I thank God every day for that day she quit.

I knew she was heading toward quitting the day she said, "I know I have a drug problem." That definition changed everything. She grew up when smoking was glam, but she was NOT going to have a drug problem!
