Hi Purple Papillon,
 
Good for you for thinking of your retirement and what you want out of life.  Quitting smoking will definitely improve the quality of your life, and will probably help you to live longer.  You will get rid of that nasty cough, and you will start to breathe easier.  You won't get winded climbing a flight of stairs.  Your clothes will smell fresh, and you won't get nicotine stains on your fingers.  You won't have to stand out in the cold to get your fix.  And those are just a few of the benefits of quitting! 
 
Take a look at the information on this site, because it will help you to properly prepare for your quit.  And post as often as you like, because we are all here to help.

Purple, your reason "Sick&Tired" is the correct reason to quit. The message is you really hate the habit but is bound by addiction. Therefore, it's time to kick this addiction out of your life. Good luck! Never give up quitting.

I'm sick & tired of coughing & wheezing. We're retiring in 3 years and would like to be healthy to enjoy our retirement.
