46 Days without a smoke

The week of Sept. 19: Sitting at my computer, smoking a cigarette, I reach up to a shelf and instantly feel a tightness in my left side of my chest. I go take an aspirin and it subsides. Sept. 20: I'm at my laptop, smoking a cigarette and feel a tightness in the left side of my chest. I go take an aspirin, but this time it doesn't go away. I feel it wrap around to the upper left part of my back. I can't breathe properly and the pain is getting worse. I wake my husband, we rush to the hospital. They kept me over night. I had 4 blood clots in my left lung. The next day, while I'm waiting for my prescriptions I all of a sudden say out loud, "Fk this shit, I quit!" I looked at the pharmacist and said, "I think I just quit smoking. Now what? I have been smoke free for 46 days and yesterday was my worst day since I quit. I live a half a block from the hotel where they sell cigarettes. I did not leave my house for two reasons; 1) I didn't want to buy any, it would have been too easy and 2) If somebody would have looked at me the wrong way I would have been facing assault charges. Today I'm feeling more in control again.
