I understand exactly what you mean. I had the feeling that this was "my time to quit", and have now been a non-smoker for just over a year. It sounds like you, too, are really ready to quit for good this time.
I am also in my 50s, and it's time to stop taking my health for granted. It is good that you realize how important things like mobility are to you. By quitting smoking now, you are giving yourself the best chance to keep living the life you want to live.
Way to go, Cheryl, and keep the quit!
