Ed introduces himself
Posted Monday, February 11, 2008
Ed is a 46 year old man who has been smoking since he was 14 years old. He wants to quit for his three children and his last quit attempt was in October of 2007, using Chantix. Unfortunately, he had a few setbacks and found himself smoking again. He struggles with cravings in the morning and is committed to making this quit attempt his last.
Smokers have a lower survival rate after surgery compared to that of nonsmokers, and are at greater risk for complications following surgery.
