I just realized yesterday that I am now 2 years Smoke Free.

After many attempts I have succeeded.

Well done old man! You cannot believe the knock-on positive effect giving up the cancer stick has had on your overall health, and yes, new studies show that even giving them up in one's 60's and 70's still has a massive beneficial effect, sinking heart attack deaths by up to 40%, so, gut gemacht and keep on breathing!

Bompa,
Good for you!

My dad started smoking when he was 14 and stopped when he was 72. He lived to be in his 80,s, but did have emphysema.

Well done! Don't be surprised if the urge to smoke sneaks up on you again--it doesn't last.
