Smoking Decreased My Life By Six Years!!!!
I used to be a big time closet cigarette smoker.... If no one saw me it did not count, right? I was twelve years old when I had my first smoke and graduated to being a full fledged smoker by the time I was 15 years old and a sophomore in high school. In my college party days - forget about it... I was stinky awful... but I thought I was cool... As I got older and the affects of smoking started to take its toll on my body - coughing, stained teeth, and gosh I just stunk.. of course I did not smell me... after I quit, I then realized that I was not fooling anyone by hiding my gross habit... When I turned 40 and discovered I had high blood pressure - I got on my knees and prayed for God to take this addiction away from me. I got up threw a new pack of cigarettes in the trash... and never smoked again - never wanted too... That was almost 4 years ago...
I was reading an article this morning about the lasting affects that smoking leaves... I learned that my life expectancy has been decreased almost six (6) years... That's awful.... If you are a smoker or you were a smoker go to this web site to check it out - very interesting.... How Does Smoking Affect Your Life Span
Don't lose another day!!! Stop Smoking Today!!!
