hi ive tried 3 times in my whole smoking career to give up (well 4 if you count 12 hours pitiful really) ........... my main reasons are that i am a 36 year old mother to 2 young children - the smoking gets in the way of everything.. one big inconvenience in my life.
On my 1st quit attempt i tried nicorette gum of which after a while i started to have the odd fag, then it kind of snowballed & before i knew it i became addicted to both gum & cigarettes this situation went on for over 2 years - i was secretly smoking, - the cost of smoking & buying gum got to a point of silliness - i became embarrased by the whole situation - to cut a long story short i decided to ditch the gum for a couple of weeks continue to smoke - join smoking clinic & try the patches - so here i am today 5 days into my quit.....hopefully it will be for keeps....
next reason money money
another reason - health - its so scary to think how life is only for once & the thought of me spoiling it & makeing myself ill by smoking is quite freaky xx
another reason - white teeth
another reason - freedom & self control which i turn will give me the biggest acheivement of the quit - to know i have the strength to do it & that i can live quite a good life without smoking
a million other reasons to quit - cant think of any to keep smoking
thanks for listening x
