Kinda wanted to wait until it wasn't freaking me out before I talked about it at large. I've amazed many people with my quick recovery...I just hate being sick Thanks, Kayelle!
Princess,

I'd nag ya but I know your not in the mood. Having my own in May I know what you mean about " Freaking out"

I had just turned 43. It shocked a lot of people. Especially me. I wasn't lucky enough for the stent, I had to go the other route. I've been reading up on how your doing with the smokes. I have quit myself. I'm down to 5 smokes a day from a pack a day on my own.

It's just not worth it to me to be on 8 medications, and the out of pocket money they cost. I'm talking well over $200.00 a month.

So now that you've inspired me a little more to quit. I'll be asking my Cardiologist about the medication.

You take care of yourself!!
We need you around here.. I'm glad your ok and back here with all of us.

Munky.

Yikees, Munky! I didn't know about yours...way too young! I found out the other day my Grandfather was 53 when the heart attack he had, killed him. Heart disease runs in both sides of my family, I'm just the lucky schmuck in this generation. Everyone else is fine, no hypertension or anything.

I am glad to be an inspiration, if any part of my being can be used as an example (good or bad) I'm all for it.

Excuse me now...I picked up another bad habit to replace the one I gave up...robbing banks!

72 Days

No smoking for 72 days. This is getting to be a habit.

Having a tough time with the diet restrictions, though!

Way to go Princess!

I've been inspired by you too. I'm down to 8-9 cigarettes / day from 34 / day. I had a checkup last week and talked to my doctor about it. She wants me to try going cold turkey. But, she gave me a prescription for Champix in case cold turkey doesn't work. She agrees that I should do this in May, after tax season. She told me to give the pharmacy the prescription now and tell them just to register it, so I won't lose it ;)

PF and MsM, I am so proud of both of you. I do know how tough this is and you are both dealing with other things as well. Keep up the good work!

Yay! Inspiration or bad Example...as long as I make an impression

So glad you have decided to take this step. I'm here for you if you need any support.

I hope to be saying the same thing MsM! Good for you!

Shrek has been smoke free for 61 days, he's having a tougher time of it.
