    Hi Constant Reader,

    This topic is an "my answer" (lol) of sorts to the other topic.

    Lesse... I'm 44 now... and yep. I'll make it, barring some unforeseen health problem out of my control.

    But I am a fighter. At my lowest moment as we have seen, I just can't go but so far in planning to off myself.

    Not if I keep smoking.

    I keep trying to quit and I just can't. I cough, I wheeze, my throat hurts and it stresses me out. And then I light up and relax. I'll have some kind of cancer within the next 5 years or so if I can't quit and there's no way I can afford treatment for it.

    That is a good question? I am 51 now so I wouldn't have to wait long. I have an on going suicide plan, but I also have my daughter and grandaughter living with me and they are relieing on me to help get them around because she has her licence suspended.:chopper:.

    Won't judge you for not quitting. It's a bitch. It is, in some (feel free to disgree :)) a more pernicious addiction my stronghold on Xanax, or rather its stronghold on me. The only way that kill me is by leading me back to alcohol and you know what?

    HELL NO I hate the shit. In part I hate it because I have been so goddamned many times that I know its promise of feel-good is a fucking ruse (for that this).

    Anyway getting O/T. But I doubt like hell I die from suic-cui.

    Hoever CANCER, now. And heart disease. They're the one that usually you get you.

    Don't smoke, so no worries. So long as I remain the compliant patient and keep the "big D" (depression, lol) at bay, I should see 55, yes.

    Thanks for replying to my topic man. It seems so often I reach out and reach out and am ignored--my positive recovery thread in here hasn't has a "nice going John" post in weeks.

    No prob. I wouldn't take it personally that people don't always respond. I think many are here just to vent because they have no other outlet. People don't like to hear negativity and some people have nobody to talk to. My posts are rarely responded to either. Probably because I often write too much once I get started. People are here for different reasons. It would be nice if everyone wanted to help support others but so many are in so much pain themselves, it seems.

    I try to chain smoke as much as I can so hopefully die of lung cancer by the time I'm like 30, that way I won't have to kill myself directly as I can't imagine getting that old right now the way I feel.

    I really can't say whether I will or not. There are times I really do not want to see tomorrow let alone years from now.

    I suggest you look for some information on smoking related illnesses. It's not a pleasant way to go. Lung cancer isn't the only disease associated with smoking. Check out oral cancer. Cancer isn't something you get and you're dead in a couple of days. It literally eats you alive. It's a terrible disease.

    Yeah. I hope I can make it to 70, even. Life has several stages worth living, each one having its own advantages and disadvantages.
