Hi, I'm Nicky and this is a story about my mom and smoking. She had been having pain in her arm and around her heart. She was in some pain for a long time. One morning at 5:35 she rushed to the hospital and found out she had fluid in her heart. If they didn't get the fluid out quickly, she would die. She also had a virus and smoking made it worse. They would have to take the fluid out with a tube. My mom stopped Smoking for the twelve days she was in the hospital, but after fifteen days she went back to smoking but now she is trying to quit.
