It's hard to believe that 6 months has past since my
life changed forever. It changed not only because I quit smoking but because I was diagnosed with lung cancer. (For those of you who
don't know of me or my history please visit my webpage ->"Fortunate To Be Alive To Tell About It!" )
Because of this crisis happening to me, it has inspired others to
give up their nicotine addiction. My sister Kelly quit the same day I did and her husband soon followed. I said to my husband not long ago
"My 6 month Anniversary would be a good day for you to quit too." I'll just wait and see what happens.
A couple I hardly know came into my place of business just to see
how I was doing after surgery. She told me her quit was going well but her husband was having some difficult times with his. I asked them
when they had quit smoking and they said "the day of your surgery." I was quite touched by that.
I receive a fair amount of e-mail from my webpage and from what
I'm told it has inspired many or has helped them from relapsing. Good to hear that!!
As for my health, I'm certainly not up to par yet, actually
I'm far from it. I had to cancel my annual canoe trip this year because there was no way I could have paddled for 2 days.
I go for my 6 month cat scan next week and I'm keeping my
fingers crossed that I'm still cancer free. I'll never forget my mother saying how lucky I am and how she couldn't imagine what
life would be like without me. Scary thought!!
Last but not least "FREEDOM"......it's the
education and support that makes this site what it is today. I wish I had been this educated years ago. (Silly how we think its just a nasty
little habit) Oh and don't let me forget the great people here too!!!
Ok, I have rambled enough........Let the party
