found this on the web,a poem

the money i suppose should be reason enough

but the bad throat you feel makes it doubly rough

so you give them away and count off the days

the freedoom you feel,all numbers of ways

then look back and feel like some sort of fool

all those ingested poisons,it wasnt that cool

as though forty a day is harder to break

then fifteen or eighty,mate its a mistake

no matter what you did in terms of the how

just you stoped for good,that means now

then you can say your an ex-smoker as well

and in your pallour,everyone can tell

cos the longer you smoke,dont kid yourself

about this haggard appearance and deslining health

these are the signs that you cant ignore

half full lungs that cough till they,re sore

i used to smoke and was happy to stop

paying to hurt myself, and i found to hard to cop

if any other product cauaed that much pain

it would,nt be sold openly with no hassle again

hopefully i now live past 100 year old

can tell great grandchrilden when cigarettes were sold

its hard to understand the political view

that makes you were a cycle helmet or get fined too

how many do you think would die from the smokes

but more than leave brain matter on there spokes

with tobacco in hand,you govern unfit

non addictive my eye,its a professional hit

won,t it hurt you because you cant see this lump

that you are creating inside you,dont be a chump

so please stop smoking while you,ve still got the time

because to burn your life away,now that is a crime

just some thing to think about,,,,you all keep the faith tony

it

  • Thanks Tony especially the line

    'stop smoking now while you have the time'.

    So true - I don't want to wait til I have cancer/heart attack etc. then decide to stop.

  • Hi Tony

    What an excellent post, just the kind of thing that when you read, it brings home all the reasons why you quit in the first place.

    Thank you
