Good morning my fellow myLotters. Just a quick appearance to let y'all know I'm ok. I am still hurting so I'm going to stay in my recliner and rest as much as I can. I will do some notifications and reading while I am awake though. I am ecstatic, for today makes 5 years of being smoke free, wohoo... I am so proud of myself for giving it up after 56 Years of smoking and I am so happy that I don't have the cravings at all. I live in a household of smokers though, so I do get the second hand smoke. I can tell because I actually have that nasty smokers cough, but not for much longer though. Donna stopped one month later on the 1st. of Sept. but she still does the vapes, I wish she could get away from that too. Ok it's almost time for another pain pill so I am going to read a little before I fall asleep again. Have a wonderful weekend y'all. Image is from the Internet

Congratulations to you! I know how difficult it is, too. Vaping is also no good.

I try to tell Donna, but at least it isn't quite as bad as smoking. Thank you for visiting and have a great weekend!

@DianneN I am only glad that she quit right after me, she told me that if her mom can quit so can she. I am so proud of her too.

I'm sorry you're still in pain. I hope you feel better soon. I'm sorry you have the nasty smokers cough. Hopefully, when you move, you'll get rid of it too. Congratulations on being smoke-free for five years.

@gr8nana6 I'm glad you will. You might find it disappears. Once I moved away from my children, my cough and bronchitis completely disappeared. I've never smoked, but my kids do so I got the second-hand smoke. I still do when I go to my son's to do laundry. But I'm not there very long.

Congratulations on being smoke free! It was a very smart decision on your part. Now you need to get Donna to give up that vaping. Our lungs were not meant to have anything in them but oxygen.

@gr8nana6 Keep encouraging her to give up the bad habit, but do so in a loving way, not in a nagging way! lol

It's tough to quit it and you have successfully done it for five years. Congratulations! It has been 20 years since my husband quit it and I have seen his initial struggle to do so

I guess secondary smoker is more dangerous than first hand smoker.

Congratulations! My mom stopped smoking in 1995 and it gave her a few years of rest from the breathing issues (and in the end, it wasn’t a smoking-related issue that killed her).

@LadyDuck I didn't have that problem since every one I ever dated smoked. Maybe if I met someone that didn't smoke I would have quit much sooner.

@LadyDuck The only one in my family growing up who smoked was my Dad. I kind of picked up the smoking from him and my peers at work.

@gr8nana6 Personally I don't think anyone should smoke inside. My brother and I both smoke but we have never smoked inside.

@simone10 Well when I smoked I did it inside too, but it was only me living there. If I had company that didn't smoke, I waited until they left. I just think it is disrespectful to smoke around non-smokers.
