and as the government make the deep cuts in order to pay back our deficit and in the process me my family and many many people like me suffer the same fate of a very very sad future i will not be lining there pockets with tax from cigarettes because i have no intention at all of using it as an excuse to smoke so at least theres a bright side

  • Great attitude Boo at a very difficult time.

    Hope something else turns up for your OH very soon.

  • That's awful news Boo - I am so sorry, and hope that something positive comes up soon. And you are right - it is a bright side that you won't be smoking your way through the problems. Stay strong.

  • Boo, that sucks.

    But you know, I'm thinking of a post you wrote a while back about pushing a double buggy uphill against a raging wind. I remember thinking what a fantastically strong person you were then, and how you've tackled smoking head on and been so amazing.

    This is another uphill windy battle, but I know you have the strength to face it with your family, and I hope and pray that the storm will be over soon and you'll be back in the sun.

    Much love,

    sorry you had this awful news Boo . I hope that something good comes up . Stay positive , your doing brilliant ((hugs)):D

  • thank you everyone for all your kind words

    i am sure we will muddle through one way or another, worrying or stressing isnt going to change the outcome so may as well just get on with it

    stay strong everyone

  • Well said boo, you inspire us all!

    I'm in the Private sector and to face an uncertain future, though not as bad as your other half at this present moment in time. I'm so glad I don't smoke at the present, it only gives the fat cats more of our taxes to spend.

    When I think about what this country is going through, cos lets face facts, whatever your political persausion is, they are only in it for themselves, I tend to think of a Billy Connelly quote which goes

    "Politicians, don't vote, it only encourages them"

    Chin up boo, you'll get through this

    Take care

  • Hey Boo whatever rubbish the world throws at you the fact that youve quit smoking will outshine it all.The fact your not smoking will get you through cos if anyone can quit smoking they can do anything.
