I never had to worry about smokers in my home growing up. I grew up Mormon, so there were no worries as my parents, brothers and sisters followed the religion, religiously 🙂
After I got married and had kids, my mother-in-law remarried and married a man who smoked, A LOT. He became a part of our family and we loved him dearly. My kids really got attached to him.
This year in April, smoking took his life. He had a massive heart attack because of smoking and did not recover. It was sooo unexpected and we asked him MILLIONS of times to PLEASE quit smoking. He tried for one week and could not do it as he had been smoking his WHOLE life. We then knew, he would never quit, ever.
It is sooo sad to see someone you love so much, kill themselves, slowly. Smoking is so bad for you and for those around you. I KNOW it is addicting, I get that, I really do. I saw how addicted to smoking my father-in-law was, and know what it can do to you. My mother-in-law is now all alone. She cries all the time and feels soooooo lonely. We are trying to move her into our home, so she does not have to be alone anymore. We want her to be happy again.
We will always remember Grandpa Dan and love him so much. No one can take those memories from us. But, smoking took his life. It is sad but true…
If you smoke and want to quit, you should try. If you don’t try for yourself, try for the ones who love you so much and need you to be healthy!
One way you can stop smoking, is to check out the Blueprint to Quit program. We all know that quitting smoking is extremely difficult to do. For example, 85% of quit attempts are unaided and the average quitter is successful only after his or her seventh try. however, smokers are unaware of the information and tools available.
There are two major factors that play into tobacco cessation:
Problem #1: Overcoming the physical addition to nicotine
Problem #2: Overcoming the psychological or emotional cravings for nicotine
For these two problems, there are two solutions for quitting smoking:
Solution #1: Pharmacotherapy or Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT)
Solution #2: Behavioral Support
