Sharon (55 year) - Nationality: Caucasion - April 29, 2001

"I took care of my best friend of 25 years after she had been declared disabled because of her enphasemia.I cared for her for 2 years and watched her go from being able to do a few things to crying because it was just too much for her to even get into the tub. She loved her baths. I miss her. I miss my grandmother who died of the same disease when I was just 24. You would think after watching my friend die day by day that I would never pick up another ciggerrete, that was 3 years ago and I am still smoking. I hate it. I hate being chained to a weed, being controlled by it and paying out large somes of money taboot. I have been told by my Doctor that I could better some of my health problems by quiting . I try to stay away from my granchildren when they have colds as I am afraid that I will catch it and I love them so much. But it has gotten to the point that a simple cold turns into bronchities and I have a hard time getting over it. I am scared. I am so scared. I know that I am headed for exactly what my friend experianced and I dont want that. Im hoping I can quit , I am praying that my grown children that smoke quit before its too late for them. I pray that someday tobbacco is a word noone recognizes. Dont smoke!"
