Dennis (46 year) - Nationality: american - September 20, 2000

"On a number of occasions, I tried to quit and even did several times, but it is hard. My wife has a serous heart problem. I have emphysema and chronic bronchitis. I also had a lung operation, where they took bolius tumours out of my lung. This was an operation as sever as heart surgery and still am having one hell of a time trying to quit. However, I have to do it. We have a granddaughter we are raising. She will be eleven soon and my goal is to see he into college. However, I am not sure whether I am going to make it. I wish there were some magic cure to quitting, but as of yet, I have not found one. I am on three different inhalers, just to keep a half of normal life. I have been trying a drug called Clombine, with lobelia and all kinds of other herbal and medicinal drugs. TO ALL YOU OUT THERE, PLEASE DONT START IT. IT IS NOT A JOKE, IT IS REAL! IT WILL KILL YOU! "
