Hey All, I have just came across this Forum and it looks great. Its good to see people giving up the addiction and supporting others in their efforts
I have been 5 months Smoke Free this year, smoked all 2009, stopped smoking all 2008 and was smoking for about 12 years before that.
I just wanted to express how hard I feel it is to get away from smokers and avoid smelling second hand smoke in London.
People stand outside the entrances to the tubes smoking, walking down the streets smoking, outside the bars or shops, outside your own office, in the parks...and so on...
I even have to smell it at work because my desk is 3 metres away from the office smoking balcony where the smoke comes through the door. My colleague that sits opposite me smokes and I get to smell a charming wiff of smoke as he comes back to sit down.
How has other people coped with this problem and controlled themselves to not think about smoking when it faces you everywhere you go in London?
