  • Hi Linzdoll,

    Well done on your quit :)

    I am sorry to hear about your Mum & your Aunt. I have given up for health reasons & hope it is not too late for me. Smoking is like Russian Roulette I think, you never know which one is the one too many :mad:

    Keep strong, keep positive, keep reading & posting :D
