Hey Guys Opah here still not smoking, but have an added assertive  to continue not to.

Had a heart attack on Christmas eve,  not a chest clutching OH My God thing just a uneasy feeling.   drove to the Hospital stood in line for an hour, got in and they hooked me up and said you are having a heart attack !  I said OK what do we do ?

Well at 12:15 Christmas Morning I had my stint in one of my arteries, seem I have excessive platelets and with my blood sugar being high they started to buld scabs in m,y arteries.

But all is well, Blood sugar is good now, lost 15 pounds since and like I said a real good incentive to continue to not smoke,  Now Time for me to preach just a little Bit, smoking had a major part in my heart attack.  I got lucky I was on and off with my smoking, I knew I was playing with fire, I was aware I could get burned, it was I feel great, I hike , i hunt, i climb mountains and carry heavy weight on my back.  I was and am active so I looked at all the exceptions and fooled myself I was one of them.  Well I was wrong and God let me know,  so Is you are trying continue to, if have have stopped, you have done the best thing you could ever do for your self, if you are considering quitting do it, you will be saving your life.

Jill, Babs, Doreen, all of you I want to say thank you, you have been caring, understanding and I hold you all as friends and I will leave you with these words of wisdom one of my hunting buds told me.    You should feel good about what happened, you proved them all wrong, you do have a heart !

You know the word Heart attack is one of those words that  read much bigger, I really appreciate all the concern but it was for me a real none event.

it was caught at the very first sign.  I was awake when they put the stint in, they used a vein in my wrist instead of my inner leg, I was released the same day and back to work 4 days later.  Been remolding my Game room, new ceiling and hard wood floor, some electrical, Been losing weight and controlling my Blood sugar.

I kinda look at it this way, God reached down and Taped my on the shoulder to say  Hey Bud your headed for trouble if you don't listen.

My sight has taken the brunt of it, went for 20/10 to barely abile to read what I am posting, Hoping know that my blood sugar is back to normal I can get a good prescription for glasses and my eyes will start to improve. 

But it was the glue I needed !

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
