Hi everyone,

I have 2 weeks down and feeling a lot better. I got really sick and my chest was so tight and dry that I could not smoke even if I wanted to. It would make me throw up and I was scared I would aspirate. I feel a lot better but I still have smoker’s cough (coughing a lot and coughing up a lot of phlegm). I know my lungs are healing and I’m grateful. I smoked for over 25 years. I’m in my early 40’s and have a 5 year old daughter who is my life. A big reason I am on this quitting journey is so I can hopefully live longer to be there for her.

Two weeks is an excellent start.  You are laying a good foundation to build your smoke free lifestyle for you and your family.  You not only save your life but your daughter's life as well.  Nice work.

Congratulations - keep at it, one day at a time will quickly grow into weeks, months and years, by one day at a time.
