LUNG FORCE Heroes
I am 50 years old and have smoked for 38 of those years. Before that my dad smoked in the car, the house, wherever he was. I've always been around smoke. I quit in the beginning of this year. I have COPD and glaucoma. I can't breathe very well now and have to rest a lot. I will eventually be blind in my left eye. My normal life is gone. All for smoking. It was so not worth it.
