I started smoking cigarettes when I was a teenager. I'm 36 years old and recently I developed a dark spot on my lip. I went to the doctors and they removed a chuck skin out of my lip to get it biopsied for cancer. I'm freaking out right now. I have to wait 10 more days for the result. I'm done with smoking. My doctor is going to prescribe me some stuff to help me quit.
I knew the risks of smoking and I always thought I'd deal with them when the time had come but I never thought it would be at this age. My grandparents are in their late 70's and they still smoke. I'm just hoping it's nothing but a scar from biting my lip as a nervous habit.
