My husband was recently diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer. He had quit smoking over 2 years ago. I did not quit and still haven't. I see what he is going through and it scares me to death yet the stress of being a full time caregiver makes it impossible to quit right now. I am taking medication to help reduce the smoking and yes I will indeed quit, but I just can't right now.

I understand that it is very hard to quit it took my sister dying of lung cancer to get me to quit she was a stage 4 and lived 3 months after being diagnosed it was very painful to see what she went thru but hers had spread everywhere and this was along time ago they have come a long way since then you and your husband are in my prayers as you can see people with even stage 4 live long good lives,this discussion board has given me so much help stay strong and hang in there.
