Not sure about this blogging but here goes nothing.
I wasn't too sure where to post this in the forms so I figured to try a blog for the first time in my life.
My wife Kitty is a 10 year stroke survivor. We currently are living on her ssdi, which most of you know there isn't any money to live on there. Now with the cost of living sky rocketing we are having to look for things to cut out that we can live without. (not that we have much now).
One place I am strongly considering, and I am sure the health care pros would agree, is to give up smoking cigarettes. I know it is an excuse not to quiet but I often feel they help me with the stress of caregiving for both my wife and her father who is bed ridden now with only 10% of his lungs functioning due to black lung.
I am just wondering if I should plan to cold turkey quit smoking, (i don't have insurance for myself) or wait till some of the pressure is off my plate to where I can handle quitting.
Thank you in advance for any input I may get. Since my father in law went down just before christmas I really don't have anyone around to talk to except here on the internet with what I hope become new friends.
