I wish I could see those pop in that I haven't seen in ages.....Yorkie, Debbie S., Laurie, Marvella, Annaree, Linda, Nancy, Harriet...and that's just naming a few.
I do miss you and I do hope you all are doing well.
You've done more for me than you know and I thank you. You all hold a special place in my heart.

Just thought about Blairsville and the gang today. Still quit. I had a couple of bouts of bronchitis and a cold. I finally took the breathing test and it confirmed what I knew but made me sad and regretful just the same. My lungs are working at about half their capacity. Like I said before, I did the crime, gonna do the time. Wish I had the sense to quit sooner or never start. Well it isn't the end of the world so on I go.
I hope you are well Sue and that life is treating you kindly. Have you made a gulf trip lately? It is sooo HOT here too. I am going to Apalachicola FL for labor day. That is a great place to vacation. Little quaint town on the gulf. Well i do hope all is well. Take care.

Praying you get full lung function. Smoking isn`t a crime. Addiction is an unplanned illness. May you have a complete recovery my friend!

It is easy to see how the choices we made led us to where we are.

It can be much harder to see where we would have been if we made different choices. Yes, if you had never started smoking, your lung function would almost certainly be much better than 50%. If you had quit sooner, maybe it would be better. But what if you hadn't quit when you did? Things would likely be much, much worse.

"What if" is a hard game to win.

I wish you peace and better health.

I hear ya.....we all wished we would have quit sooner.
Just because we quit didn't mean that anyone of us would be safe from illness.
All we can do is stay on track with our quits and keep on thanking God for His gifts.
You're right on Harriet....it ISN'T the end of the world.
You did the best thing ever for yourself when you did quit and you moved on.
I hate to think what it would be like if we still smoked....now that would be way worse.
You hang in there and you will be remembered in my prayers for better health.
Oh.....and we didn't get down to the gulf this year. We couldn't fit it in....LOL.
We're not going to miss it next year, that's how much we like it.
You take care and thank you for posting.
