Hi, I'm new here also but have finally decided that I must give up smoking.
I have been retired now for just over a year but I guess I have relied on my smoking to keep me going, I've felt so lost since retiring after working 20 years at the same place.
Money is now so short that I'm feeling awful guilty at wasting so much of it on my smoking. I sit and think about how much easier life would be if I didn't smoke and we would be over Â£50 better off a week which would solve some of our money problems. It's really got me down lately thinking about it.
I started smoking when I was 15 and am now 63 and smoke around 40 a day so as you can see it's not going to be easy for me to give it up and have never tried before, only cut down a few times but couldn't even keep that up for long. I know I'd be much better off and healthier without the smoking, and this time I really want to quit, I MUST quit :eek:
