    Rush Limbaugh Announces He has Advanced Lung Cancer

    Rush Limbaugh Announces He has Advanced Lung Cancer

    Limbaugh said “there will be days he won’t be able to be there due to treatment.”

    The Hill’s Joe Concha tweeted that Rush Limbaugh announced of his radio show that he has advanced lung cancer.

    Ryan Saavedra has Limbaugh’s full remarks:

    “Ladies and gentleman, this day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory for me because I’ve known this moment was coming in the program today,” Limbaugh began. “I’m sure you all know by now, I really don’t like talking about myself and I don’t like making things about me other than in the usual satirical joking way.”

    “I like this program to be about you and things that matter to all of us,” Limbaugh continued. “The one thing that I know that has happened over the 31 plus years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that has developed between all of you and me.”

    “So I have to tell you something today that I wish I didn’t have to tell you,” Limbaugh continued. “And it’s, it’s a struggle for me because I had to inform my staff earlier today.”

    “I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer,” Limbaugh said.

    I quit cold turkey at 6 PM on November 6, 1993. I had “quit” a dozen times before that, but on 11/6/93 I crushed out my last smoke after 20 years of 1-3 packs a day. For a substitute, I would slowly drink a glass of warm water when I felt the urge, just to give me the sensation of the warm smoke. That helped a great deal. Also, when I found myself reaching for a pack (the one that wasn’t there-that’s a big key), I would recite the fact that “I don’t smoke anymore. I smoked my last cigarette on November 6, 1993, at 6 PM”. By the time I recited this mantra, the desire to light one up diminished enough for me to focus on non-smoking things. I used this technique for several years.
    If you want to smoke your last cigarette, I hope this helps and I truly wish you the best of luck and inner strength.

    Losing Rush would be like losing family.

    I wish him the best.
