IslandGirl Posted November 14, 2003 Share Posted November 14, 2003 I just wanted to tell all of you that my prayers are with you all. I have been a smoker for 20 + years and I'm only 34 years old. I have not been diagnosed w/ any kind of cancer to date, although I’ve never been tested either. Due to my age, I had made a decision to quit smoking. I figured w/ 3 daughters one who is 16 ½ and two younger ones, if I were to get sick – my oldest would have to raise her sisters. That’s definitely not the life I envisioned for her.. So I gave up the habit I thought I loved. After doing some research, I have found so much information concerning smoking related illnesses. I just cannot believe how bad it is for you and if I would have known – I don’t believe I would have smoked to begin with.. Again, my prayers to all the sufferers and most of all the families they leave behind. I have scheduled my first ever physical as an adult “just to make sure”. I will continue to read all the boards because everyone has touched me in a special way. Stay strong! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
