Got a triple bypass on March 13, 2019 and was send home 6 days later. The first thing that was on my mind when I got home was to have nice fresh cup of coffee and a smoke. Having said that after the first night puff, a coughing fit occurred and made things for me very painful, feeling my chest and staples ready to pop open. It was easy to put that cigarette down while I was hugging my chest to keep everything in place. Addiction is not an easy monster to conquer but I will do it.....eventually.
