Carley, I'm so proud of you for quitting smoking.
I have a friend that smokes and that I haven't been able to visit with because of doctors orders.
I suffer from a condition called allergy induced Pneumonia (chemical smell allergy) Anyway I said to her if she ever quits her chain smoking, I'll be able to visit with her again without me getting a severe lung infection (I'm a virtual prisoner in my house because of this chemical intolerance)
It's been years since I've seen her and yesterday around 4pm I received a phone call from her.
It turns out her doctor told her to quit smoking NOW because it has contributed to her contracting type 2 diabetes.
She has already lost two sisters to smoking related cancer but the diabetes is what finally made her stop.
She told me she wouldn't stop smoking earlier because she was afraid to gain anymore weight.
Her defacto is also chewing on nicotine chewies and giving up the smokes to make it easier for her.
