For 40 years, I had a habit of drinking 5 or 6 Mt. Dews, 5 or 6 BC powders (because of back pain) and a pack of cigarettes every day!
For the past year, I’ve had trouble breathing, no energy and a sense of my health spiraling downward. For 10 to 15 minutes after I smoked a cigarette, I could not breathe and my coughing got worse and worse. I had to quit smoking.
Now, I have stopped smoking, stopped all caffeine as well as the BC powders! Surprisingly, I had no headaches. My energy came back after 2 days and I feel better than I have in a very long time.
