May 7, 2012

Hi everybody. My name is Amy and I quit smoking on May 7, 2012. I'm 36 years old and have 3 small boys. Their ages are 7, 6, and 2. About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with Emphysema. I've lost more than 1/3 of my lung function. I was told back them that if I kept smoking I would only have 10 years (at most) left. I'm now down the 8 1/2 years. My kids will not be out of high school yet.

I have gone 4 days without a cigarette and I feel better than I did, but this has been a very hard struggle. I've been smoking for 20 years, so it's going to take me awhile...but I'm hoping that I can do it with support from other people that and struggling with the same problem as I am.

I hope to talk to as many of you as I can.
