I'm Officially Quitting the Cancer Game
One of the things that I did prior to embarking on my Isagenix program was to quit smoking cigarettes. It wasn't like I was ever a chronic smoker (maybe 3-5 cancer sticks per week), but it's a bad habit and I'm happy to be rid of it. After a while, it got so I didn't even know why I kept doing it. My mouth felt like an ash tray and my breath smelled like burnt burlap (according to my lovely fiancee). I wasn't even getting any pleasure out of it anymore. It's been three weeks since I've had a puff, and I feel great! My brother had a pretty serious heart attack a few years back and even though he's in great shape and not overweight, he smoked for quite a while. The main artery to his heart was completely clogged! The doctors determined that tobacco consumption was the main cause of his heart attack. After that incident, I stopped for about a year, but after a while I started up again. I'm so happy and hopeful to be on the path away from cigarettes and I feel better as a result. For all my readers who are still smoking, try to quit. It's tough the first few days, but after that it gets much easier.
