I figured i'd have it on the forum why i'm stopping, so i can look at it every time i have a day from hell like today!!
My main reason for stopping is my health. I'm 29 yet i can't run up the stairs anymore. I've 2 boys who are 12 and 8 and i exhaust myself playing footie with them cos i refuse to let them down but i'm so unfit i feel faint after only 10 minutes!! lol pathetic!! Slowly but surely over the past few years my smoking's increased and my energy levels have obviously decreased.
I watched my ex's mum (my boys gran) die slowly and horrendously from lung cancer 5 years ago, she was 65. I've lost both grandads to cancer and countless other relatives, all due to smoking I refuse to allow my boys to have to watch me go through that pain and suffering all because i was too weak and selfish to stop.
It'll also be nice not to feel paranoid that work colleages (mainly doctors lol) can smell smoke on me every day. Or that i've got bad breath when speaking to someone lol. I look forward to the shiny hair and better skin too that someone promised me if i stop lol. I look forward to all these things but the main one is not wondering in 10/20 years time if i'm riddled with cancer yet!!!!!
Oh and the money will be fab too but that's just a small bonus compared to life init!!
