Reading Davofgy's thread about the tongue thing etc. got me thinking about why i quit.
I dont mean the usual stuff like to save money, my health (a general term), for my kids etc. i mean what was the thing that made me finally say
"thats it!! i will quit this F$%Â£ing thing!!!!"
For me it was seeing two work colleagues both get cancer, one of the mouth, the other in the lung and brain.
Despite seeing various members of my family die from smoking related illnesses years ago i still smoked. When you are younger you think you are immortal.
But i think the various niggly illnesses and unwell feelings over the past few years had been praying on my mind (start of smokers cough, running out of breath when training, every headache being a brain tumour, every cold was lung cancer, yeah i know typical guy/manflu type thing!!) coupled with these two colleagues, finally scared the S4it out of me and i realised that i had to do something.
So, the question is, what finally made YOU realise that you HAD to quit and that there would be no going back?
