I’ve been smoking since I was 13 and I smoked heavily for all of these years. At age 43, I suffered a brain aneurism directly related to smoking. At 44 years of age, I’m disabled and have limited use of my left side and work very hard every day to get my brain to reconnect to my left side. If you are wondering what this is like, safety pin your left sleeve to your pants and try to get through the day. I can’t even tie my shoes. I feel better since quitting. I can feel my lungs healing and food tastes so good.
