My folks are dead pleased that I have finally stopped and are giving me loads of encouragement.
I was chatting to my dad yesterday about how he stopped and how hard it was for him and thought I'd share this with you all. It was a harsh reality check for me.
I was explaining about Champix and how much it is helping and asked how he felt when he stopped (20+ years ago now). His response -
'I didnt notice any withdrawal sysmptoms - best thing I ever did'
'How come?' - I asked.
he replied ' I was on a life support machine after having had a massive heart attack - had other things to worry about than not being able to smoke'. He hasnt had one since - guess thats a pretty good reason to stop! (and i'm very glad that he did).
