Hey guys i'm Nat.
So i'm going to be quitting smoking as of tomorrow (I was going to do it as of today but I have 9 cigs left and I know i'll end up smoking them, so thought i'd smoke them and be done with it!)
I've been smoking since I was 14, i'm nearly 21 now.
My reason for giving up is my doctor says I have narrowing of the arteries and I have an ultrasound this coming Wednesday so they can have a look. My feet and hands are really cold & its getting worse. My toes really hurt at the mo, so I googled what the doc says I have & a lady who's 23 posted something on the site saying lost a leg due to it! I know smoking isn't going to be helping my arteries and it's scared the life out of me that it could be this serious.
I don't actually have any other reasons to quit.. this might sound bad but I enjoy it.
But basically I wanna keep my limbs and i'm also pretty worried about clotting, but i'm quite worried that I feel like I need to quit rather than want to... Not sure if thats the right attitude?
I am 100% sure I need to though..
