My wifes Mum died 7 years ago form the effects of smoking. She smoked around 30 a day and eventually her heart just gave out ! 2 years later her husband died of a heart attack and the PM showed all the signs of heart disease caused by smoking. The most worrying aspect of this was he didnt smoke and the cause of death was in fact due to passive smoking.
It took me another 5 years to realise what a d**k I was by carrying on this habit, so the plans were made. On 1st January 2007 to pack in. On the way back from the match I had 12 fags left and my son took great pleasure in chucking them all out the car window (may be some sort of symbolism !!)
From that day I have had my ups and downs... going out for a few beers was the hardest ! Now approaching 6 months and put a bit of weight on, but clothes smell clean, teeth are whiter and my bank balance is healthier.
All you folk on here are only here for 1 reason...because you WANT to pack in. You may have your setbacks...but you should never give up...The nicest thing you'll hear yourself saying is
"No thank you, I don't smoke"
Roll on Jul 1st...I going down the pub
