Can you do stairs?

It is official, I am old! Who me? I was offended but the truth is my doing stairs was in question. This question was asked at the hospital yesterday. The tipping point for my quit was the physical. I was unable to walk back up the hill from my garden. Out of breath, heart pumping, are you kidding me, terrible feeling. The conflict lived with me for years and the list of reasons to quit had gotten long. Now it was personal. They say an addict has to hit rock bottom and they hit the point that it is personnel. My co-worker who quit said it was easy. Kidney cancer made it clear. I like having the ability to do stairs. That means a lot to me. Tobacco tried to take that from me. No.

    It is wonderful to be able to do the things that tobacco had so deviously taken away from us. Everything from stairs to yard work, to biking, to hiking to pickleball to enjoying life is so much better now. For those early in a quit.... It's there if you want it!!

    Breathing sure makes stairs easier - now if the rest of my body would just be more open to the concept I would be running up and down them. lol

    Oh, did you ever hit a nerve. I am so new at this that my benefits are just starting. My husband is in a Long Term Care Facility. I walk to see him most days. But as the trip home is all up hill, I just can’t do it yet. But I am giving myself 6 months. And then I will try it. Until then the Bus is my friend. God Bless....
