I am almost 64 years old and have just been diagnosed with COPD Emphyszema. I have been smoking since I was about 16 years old. I am trying to quit. I even went and got hypnotized, which was wonderful. It does help. But this morning I bought a pack of cigarettes and just couldn't focus on anything but having that cigarette. I want to be healthy. I want to quit smoking. I don't know how to stay focused and change these nasty habits. I do not want to become an invalid with an oxygen tank by my side. Thanks for listening.
