Hello all you lovely people. My last attempt to give up smoking was March 08 when i succeeded for a grand total of 3 weeks..... pathetic.

Anyway since then I've lost my dad to a smoking related illness and im determined not to let my children go through what I did.

So here we go again. My day one will be on Sunday 2nd January 2010, so be prepared for lots of moans and groans.

Well done to all you quitters and be strong for those stopping imminently.

Happy New year to all of you and I know that 2010 will be a good year for all us non smokers to be:)

Speak to you all on Sunday
