Lovely to have you back quitting hun. Just take it bit by bit things may be a little easyer this time because you have not been back smoking for long. it can be done babes I smoked 40 a day for 35 years never in my life thought I could get past one day. but once I started trying to quit every time I fail I keep trying. Hopfully this is the one this time.xxxxxxxxx

Hi ali, glad your back and this time is the right time, you sound really positive and as you say practice makes perfect.

well done nearly on day 2 now!



i was a roll smoker for 20years 2-at the beginning they tasted lovely and sweet but u know and i know that that good taste is long gone!

i'll tell u a story bout rolls-xmas 2005-boxing day-in a pup wi loud music lots of drunk people and i'm in wi this gorgeous babe-because the bar was packd we sat at a table wi some guys opposite-it turns out they r polish and one of them keeps tryen 2 get my attention-wen i went to use the ashtray he'd move it away from me and mutter something-he was drunk 2 so i hadnt a clue wat he was on about-then he pointd towards the toilets and i'm thinking-rite he either fancies me or the girl or both of us-anyway i follow him down and i remember every word he said-

"you smoke the same as me.golden virginia-i'm 39 and have 9 months to live because of smokn that-wether i give up now or not i'll not c next christmas-i mite get a few xtra months but that stuff's killing me rite now-ur with a nice girl-u still have lots of health-give it up now or u'll be like me-dont tell that girl or anything-i dont want sympathy-i'm telling u this so u mite stop-"

then they left not long after that and i never seen him again-one things 4 sure-he's dead and we aint-he wantd to help me and i think his story mite help u 2-i was off them 4 a year that new years eve and it was so easy!

stupidly i startd again and i sort of thought-i can do it again-i couldnt-i'v spent 3 years going round in circles-i'm off them one day now-i feel good-and i know that support here is helpn me-i hope u make it-a wee bit at a time dude-u know wat u wana do-so do it-and i will 2
