Paula's story - One day at a time*

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

I had a really bad flu one morning, it got really bad. I could hardly breathe, freaked me out a bit. Then I remembered people talking about having emphysema and not being able to breathe. I thought to myself, I couldn't cope with that, then I tried to have a few smokes when I felt a bit better - coughed my guts up. Then I said "This is it" I am not doing this anymore. The very next day I saw the Mick Roberts Quit ad on TV with his oxygen bottle. That was it! No More! Went cold turkey and have downloaded heaps of yucky pics and info to keep me motivated. I think I have been lucky so far to still be as healthy as I am. No more Russian Roulette. It's not, if smoking is going to make you sick, but when!
