    To stop smoking To hear from others

    I am trying to make another attempt to stop smoking. This time I want to hear from others who feel the same. The smoking has gotten to where I am never totally free of a cold and nasal congestion. I have been trying different things to get rid of the cold. Also, I have some sleep problems lately, and when I wake up, nose feels at its fullest. As the morning goes on, it clears up, so breathing is easiest. I had hip replacement surgery 5 months ago, and I notice have been short of breath more since the operation that I was before. I believe my problem is smoking and some from recovering from surgery. Any tips from people who have or have had these issues are welcome. I retired awhile back, so have times to try many things now. Thanks.
