Advice to those that smoke don't want until your in your 50's you get those ugly lines around the mouth which you can see in the picture of my nose tumor. Ugly! I've been quit for a while and they ain't going no where! So don't do it if possible.
Thanks again Bill!:)
Wow...that's quite interesting Terry. I bet it feels good to be able to see direct confirmation that chemo is working!
As for the pic, any problem Terry! They are easy to do!
Thanks for the PSA too! I have been trying to share my new line in this respect: Quit early and quit often! I never smoked myself, and it always turns me off when folks I know and care about, even strangers, smoke. I don't like others polluting my air. . . makes me want to load up on eggs cabbage and whatever else will make me gassy and rank so I can go upwind from a smoker at the store entrances and share with them an example of how inconsiderate they are being.
But that would be evil, wouldn't it? Really what I wonder is if there is anything anyone could have heard when they were young to have avoided taking up smoking in the first place
I'm always glad to hear about folks successfully stopping. I have a few friends also sworn off drinking too recently. We'll see how that goes to. I really know nothing about supporting folks in these things!
But back to you Terry, you are quite the fighter. You are one of my inspirations actually in terms of more and more treatments being available. . . with my recurrence, I really was having trouble with seeing that I had any real options. . . even though I just started my new journey. I do thank you as one of the folks who shares how much hope and room there can be even as this disease progresses.
Wishing you the best Terry.
