These are portable tanks that last maybe 6 hours.
I was a smoker for approximately 38 years and then in February of 2000 I quit cold turkey simply because I didn’t want to smoke anymore. It was a disgusting habit that needed to end and so I ended it and never looked back! With the right frame of mind, anyone can quit and all they have to do is not to want it anymore! Period!
Smokers know the perils of smoking but once they get hooked, granted, it is not easy to give it up especially if you say things like, ‘this is not easy to give up’. We are all capable of convincing ourselves of just about anything so wouldn't it be better to commit to saying that you don’t want to smoke anymore as in nope, no thanks, I’ve had enough – time to move on to something else!
I have always liked the smell of a cigarette being lit with a match and that might be the reason I started. Too bad I didn't just light matches to sniff! We all have our lame excuses but I certainly didn’t think I was cool because I smoked and I didn’t flaunt my habit in front of anyone. I smoked because I wanted to and for no other reason. I was actually the only one in my group of girlfriends who did smoke although another started up years later. So, I smoked because I wanted to and I stopped smoking because I wanted to. It was as simple as that.
Back in the day when I took up the habit, the public wasn’t that informed about what cigarettes could do to their health and by the time we learned all the facts, we’d been puffing away for years and with excuses of why we couldn’t quit. My son used to tell us that he was never going to smoke but then he started too. Luckily he was able to stop before too many years but he still puffs on those electric cigarettes a few times a day while he’s driving around from site to site on his job. The only good thing is he doesn’t smell like cigarette smoke anymore!
This is the tank for sleeping. It runs all night and makes oxygen out of the air.
My sister who has asthma and chronic bronchitis was also a smoker and even though she quit a long time ago, she contracted COPD, aka Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Only 30% of her lungs are left for breathing. She also has Emphysema and is on oxygen 24/7. I’ve taken care of her for quite a few years and I continue to do so. Not only can she not breathe well, but she also coughs a lot, has vision problems and possibly Fibromyalgia.
This is a nebulizer for breathing treatments of Albuterol.
Those commercials on television that show former smokers wearing voice boxes to speak or some have lost their legs is really disturbing….and yet people continue to smoke. All I can say is no one is immune to the end results which could mean a life of breathing pills and nebulizer treatments every four hours as well as the use of an oxygen tank day and night. As a smoker, I was one of the lucky ones not to develop any problems but the odds aren’t always so great which is something smokers need to think about.
