Talk about a silver lining! During a pandemic that is mainly known for affecting a person's respiratory system, people are quitting smoking in record numbers! I'm happy to say that I am one of them. I'm now 21 days smoke-free after smoking for nearly thirty years!

This is also big news because according to research in the United States by the New England Journal of Medicine, smokers have been 1.8 times more likely to die than non-smokers when hospitalized for COVID-19.

It turns out that I'm not the only one in the Shreveport-Bossier area who decided to take control of their health and quit smoking this year. When I posted about my progress on social media, I found that several people on my friends' list had decided to better their health as well! Check out some of their comments and stories in the post below and as always, I'd love it if you shared your story and gave me a follow!
