People Who Smoke Should Read This - April 9th 2010, 05:27 PM

So My Parents Have Been Split Since I Was Like 3.
But My Mum Had This Boyfriend Through My Entire Childhood, Like From 4 To 12/13.
Today We Got The News That He's Died, He Had Cancer From Last September And The Doctors Said He Wouldn't Make Last Christmas. So He Ignored Them Just Like Usual, He Always Was A Stubborn Sod
We Had A Lot Of Laughs Together, He's The One That Introduced Me To Star Wars Which I've Loved Ever Since.
He Also Was The First Person To Take Me Go-Karting And Showed Me How To Bash Other People Off The Track When I Was About 8.
He Was A Brilliant Man,
He Died of Lung Cancer And Secondary Brain Cancer, By The End He Was Blind And Paralysed.
All Because He Smoked..
Seriously If Anybody Reading This Smokes, Its So Not Worth It. Trust Me, I've Seen The End, And Its Not Fun, Its Not Pretty And Definitely Not Cool.
I'm Trying Not To Be Too Sad, I Know He'd Hate It If I Moped And Stuff
But I Still Miss Him,


"Another year over, and we're still together.
It's not always easy, but McFly's here forever
I know you believe me, when you look into my eyes
'Cause McFly never dies, because The Heart Never Lies!"

Amelia, so sorry for your loss. I can relate. I was raised by my grandparents, both long long term smokers. My grandpa was diagnosed with lung cancer which had already spread covering 3/4 of his brain. He went through the chemo and radiation and though it did help shrink the tumors in his lungs, it did nothing for the cancer on his brain. He was diagnosed on July 10th, 2006, and passed away on November 24th, 2006. My grandma passed away June 10th, 2006 and the doctors had found a dark spot in her lungs too. Im a smoker, started before I was 10 and have been trying, and trying, and trying to quit. Its not at all an easy thing to do. For me, I still feel the connection between my grandma and smoking. We used to hide out in the bathroom in the middle of the night, smoke and eat ice cream. Even at 20 years old. Its so hard for me to let go of that, anything.

Again, Im sorry for your loss, and for mine.
