Hi my names Paula, i am planning on giving up smoking tomorrow. I really want to give up, its more of a habit as i really dont enjoy them any more but i get very moody when i try to give up and thats always my excuse to go back. I have a son who as had 2 open heart surgerys (i dont smoke in the house near him) he will need to have another surgery in a few years and i worry that i wont be healthy enough for him, if i carry on smoking. I have been smoking for 30yrs. My gums are becoming unhealthy and i dont want to loose my teeth. I am not worried about gaining weight as i am a stone under weight so will do me some good. I wrote a list and i came up with 26 reasons to give up smoking and only 3 reasons not to :eek:. Does anybody have any good tips on controling stress and anger, they are my main down falls and what i need the most help with, thanks.
