I am 38 years old and have been smoking since I was 15 years old around 20 ish a day since then and now I have decided enough is enough..
My main reasons for quitting are:
2. My health and wellbeing
I also want to stay smoke free coz of my daughter and my boyfriend and they both deserve to have me as long as possible (even though i might annoy them!!!)
........... but I need to do this for me for this to work forever!
now for the materialistic side of it .....
Money !!!! what i would have spent on fags for holidays....... next holiday I want is Sri Lanka and Maldives and the only way i wil ever achieve it is to not smoke, I'm a single mum of one (nearly 18) and work full time but smoking was costing me Â£40+ a week with that amount i can pay for holiday in 8-10 months!! In fact the money I would have saved by September is paying for a cheap break in majorca (Â£125 for a week hol) now I can pay for that in less than a month's smoking costs!!! I have also had more money in my pocket and can't seem to spend it!!!
so which ever way i look at it. . its a win win situation!!!
