I was one of those people who loved to smoke.
No amount of belly aching could convince me to give it up.
Everyone tried, my wife, my kids, my parents, and my friends.
Even after watching my mother battle the effects of emphysema
I refused to give it up.
Sound familiar? Do you struggle with the same stubbornness?
Well, it finally happened. I got so sick, my lungs were so contaminated,
I could not breathe.
Gotta admit, I was terrified. I was sucking in air as hard as I could and
not a drop was making it in. My chest is on fire.
My life was flashing before my eyes. All those memories......
Then I thought about missing my daughter's wedding,
Yeah, she is Daddy's little girl. Everyone needs one, there
is nothing like it.
One more try, ahhh, air, sweet air. Thank you Lord
That's it. Off to the doctor. A couple thousand dollars later,
a hand full of prescriptions, and I knew it was time.
Time to let determine my own destiny.
Yep, time to give it up.
