My family have just buried our much loved 59 year old cousin. He died of COPD. Anyone out there still smoking need to give it up now. His death was one of the most horrible I have ever seen. He was attached to a ventilator and sedated. In order for him to die they had to bring him to conciousness but use a paralysing drug to keep him calm, they then switched off the life support and removed the ventilator. He was completely aware of what was going on. Imagine having all your faculties but the only thing you could not do was breathe. 59 years is a completely unacceptable age to die by today's standards. My own father died at 64 of a massive heart attack in his sleep, caused by smoking. Both deaths could have been prevented if they had just given up smoking, it is never too late to stop.
