Quitting smoking was one of the hardest things I've ever done. But it was one of the best things I've ever done for myself. I loved to smoke. From my first teenage drag on a cigarette, I was happily hooked, throughout my twenties. Eventually, though, I knew I had to quit, and it took a variety of tries before I was able to figure it out. Not long after, I was diagnosed with a thyroid condition. Only later did I learn about the relationship between thyroid disease and smoking. The years of smoking may actually be the root cause of my thyroid condition! Learn more about the link between cigarette smoking and thyroid disease
