Thanks for your input. My cardiologist just gave me chantix to try to stop smoking. He said with my high blood pressure and irregular heart rhythms, I am a walking time bomb for a major cardiac event!
So after 30+ yrs of smoking.. I am going to give it a try...I haven't had a heart attack and really don't want one!
Glad you are feeling well now. Hope I feel good soon too.
