My many reasons for quitting!!


I have so many reasons for stopping......, My main reason is my health i have a tracheostomy and should never smoke. I have 2 young boys i want to see grow up, money and my most recent reason is im going for a tummy tuck in 8-10 weeks and smoking can cause some serious complications! So im so determined to do it this time!!

I will suceed!xx

Yup it is, i did smoke normally tho, not through my neck! It sounds terrible doesnt it!

I had Glandular fever when i was 15 and my vocal cords were damaged and paralysied (sp?), i have had it for over 10 years now.

Thanks, im going to need all the help i can get.xx

No i dont mind you asking at all.

Because of my damaged vocal cords my air way is very restricted so i need my trachie to bypass the obstruction.I think i kinda smoked so i felt normal if you get what i mean, fit in with the crowd!

Today has been a bit of a struggle but im still hanging in there, just boredoom today! x

Im proud of myself, before when i tried to quit i was only doing it because i was getting nagged to do it but this time i am doing it for myself!
