GUEST,Elizabeth BS: Extreme Nicotine Withdrawal Help (174* d) RE: BS: Extreme Nicotine Withdrawal Help 09 Dec 04

WOW...finally found a website that talks it like it is! I am mortally embarrassed to even write this as I am a 70 yr old lady, with COPD, advanced emphysema, been in hospital w/pneumonia every 3 - 4 mos. for the past 2 yrs, been on nighttime oxygen for 2 yrs., now on daytime oxygen also for the past few months.
Have managed to stay out of hospital for the past 9 months. And yes, here it is....I am still smoking. Started way back when I was 17 when it was "cool" (remember that?), smoked for 50 years. COPD hit me rather quickly. I have 4 wonderful children, 7 beautiful grandbabies, a loving and supportive pair of sisters & lots of friends, etc. If that's not a lot to be grateful for, I don't know what is. BUT....I am still smoking. Guilt is my first name these days. I do manage, about one day/night per week this past month, to go for 24 hrs without a cigarette. I just wanted to share my story with all you great folks involved in helping each other...and yes, I know that what I am doing is surely suicidal. For an intelligent woman, I am stupid when it comes to this. Just nice to know you are all out there! Thanks.
