👍 Good info on the CT scan for early Lung Cancer detection and prevention. I technically do not qualify because I never did smoke a pack a day. In fact, I would stop for a year or so, on three or four separate periods, during the 30 years I smoked more than half a pack a day.

It's been 12 years since I quit smoking. However, for the decade before that, I had been smoking  htree cancer sticks a day (or less). Carmen was always on my case to quite. I had worked my way all the way to one cancer stick a day in 2006.

On January 3, 2007, I experienced multiple syncopes. I got implanted with a dual chamber Medtronic pacemaker. I had a smoke after I left the hospital. :P

That night at around 3:00 A.M. I had to poop. I nearly passed out on the head. I managed to lay down on the floor. Carmen was asleep. It was another syncope. The pacemaker kicked in and the nausea and dizziness left me.


I have not smoked since then.

There is an old saying in Spanish: "A golpes aprende el perro." The rough translation, that applies more to people than dogs, is that physical blows teach the dog, It applies 100% to me. 
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
