Read this and stay quit

Hi to all who are going to read this, I was sent this link by email, it was sent to me by a friend who knows I have quit and wants me to stay quit.

I have read it this morning, it’s the post about 4 down about her husband, I think after reading this no one will ever want to smoke, ever again.

I thought I didn’t need any help staying quit but after reading this I now know that maybe there was still a little corner of my brain that was saying oh if I want to smoke I can and maybe if I am ever really desperate I can have one.

After reading this I can now say that I will give my oath that I will never ever smoke again and that I will never even consider smoking ever again.

I am sorry if this distresses anyone as it has distressed me, but if it has the same effect on you as it has had on me then it has done the job it was intended for, keeping us smoke free. God Bless.

  • Its a scary reality, and yet unless you really know these people you still cannot truly understand what they have gone through.

    I for one never want this for my OH or daughter to go through, and i made this pledge pretty much as soon as daughter started to watch me smoking out the back yard.. made me think.. and think some more and now here i am.

    And what are you when you die to this? just yet another statistic.. a number.. a tiny tiny number among millions and yet every day.. kids start smoking for the first time to replace those that lost their fight.

    I want my life to mean something, if all i am is a good dad then that is something.. far better than the man who never did stop smoking until it finally got him.

    Hi Jase I have read so many, one the other day a woman 56 quit loads of times but didnt stay quit, always thought she was safe cause none of her family had had the big C so carried on and thought she could do it another time, 6 months after diagnosis she died I cried at that as well, how heart rending they can be.

    She wrote hers all down and posted she said so long as one person quit or stayed quit because of her story it would be worth it.

    What a Brave Brave Lady, may she now be in the arms of someone she loved.

  • Well Angie, you found a very strong new set of reasons to stay quit here... i'd also find it very hard now to smoke a cigarette that starts a chain reaction that ends in what you've now read about.

    I value my life more than that.. i'm sure you do too.

    keep the faith.

  • Thanks Angie

    Seen that linkor similar before and it is harrowing, wont be watching it again but people should see it once if they ever go through a doubtful stage in their quit ..............

  • *Deep breath*

    That was hard to read. Certainly makes me think how precious life is. Having read that brings it home and right now i am so happy to have quit.

    I have seen someone die with an aggressive Cancer. I never want to see that again.

  • A very emotive post Jamangie and how could anyone 'enjoy' a cigarette after reading it.

  • Gave me cold shivers.

    Makes me even more determined never to go down that route again, thanks.

  • Hi and a happy mayday to you all, yes I know what you all mean if we do smoke after reading some of these harrowing posts than we do not deserve to be one of the lucky ones.

    I am like most people on here, it seems that as the years pass by and certain ages are reached and the big C becomes more and more common we are touched by it, I have lost loved ones and so have most of you on here, and it is hard to deal with but I for one cannot believe that after losing my Mum to lung cancer why I didnt stop then, but I am so glad that I have at last seen sense and will make this my last quit.

    I will also make sure that no matter how easy my quit becomes I will still make the effort to continue using this forum, not just to keep my quit strong but to also give back the support that I have been given along my journey, we all know that there are others in a less secure quit who still greatly need our help.

    So may you all have a good weekend and nothing to disturb your dreams xx
