Smoker for 18 years (30 a day) with a bit of stop and starting here and there as you do..
Decided at New Year that it was time to stop this bad habit, but didn't want to do it as a resolution, so looked for No Smoking Day and here I am last cig last night at 11.00.
Since New Year have been compiling a list of reason to not smoking or to smoke
Reasons not to smoke - EXTREMELY bad for my health, expensive, makes me smell bad, stains my fingers, feel like a mug, only smoke in the garden (since New Year) and its cold out there, feels anti-social to pop out for a fag, nearly all my friends don't smoke (feel there pity), my teeth are yellow, I get tingling and numbness in my hands because of the constriction of the veins, I cough like an old crow, I don't like being a failure its my body and I WANT CONTROL, I feel my childrens disapproval, I know the taste of my food is lacking (I love food), money spent on ruined clothes, decorating and furniture throughout the years, would like to live as long as possible, have a weird burning rubber taste in my mouth and I'm sure my facial muscles around my mouth are overworked from sucking on the "coffin nail"
Reasons to smoke - ?
That sort of sums me up at the moment
