I am a former smoker and here I am. I am now going to be a rabid anti-smoking fan and I will report each and every person I see trying to sneak a smoke or an e-cig whenever I see them.
I so sorry for your loss! When I was young my neighbor had lung cancer and I watched her slip away over the course of a few years. Watching her gasp for breathe and use oxygen scared the crap out of me! God sent me a message loud and clear. I have never smoked and never will. A guy I worked with died of lung cancer at 72. He never drank or smoked but his wife did. Life can be so unfair! Felix my heart goes out to you.
