I think like most people I have the usual reasons, anyone can really see that smoking is not a good idea. From the health to the smell and cost, its all just bad.
I do it because of the nicotine addiction rather than any real pleasure or benefit.
I think the real reason is that I hate the whole addiction, stopping is constantly on my mind and smoking prevents me from doing the things I really enjoy.
I like martial arts and sports and whilst I'm fairly fit, smoking and the cough puts me off doing it. It saps my motivation and I just don't do as much of these things I enjoy.
Also I love singing and due to smoking restricting my breathing I don't practice as much.
So many things will improve for me almost immediately, I can just enjoy living the life I really want to live without this addiction constantly bothering me and reducing my life satisfaction.
I'm motivated so I think that will really help. It will be good to enjoy all of these benefits
