As of 10 o'clock tonight, I will have been completely nicotine free for an entire month - cannot actually believe how fast its passed.
And last night something happened that completely reinforced my reasons for stopping. My OH's aunt (she's only 50) had an anneurysm in the brain and they are all currently at the hospital switching off her life support to allow her to die. One of the main causes of anneuryms is smoking - she smoked 20 a day!!
My OH said this morning "we all think we're indestructable, until something like this happens, dont we??"
This is so true, especially smokers. We all know that 1 in every 2 smokers die from a smoking related illness but our addiction makes us convince ourselves it wont happen to us!!
So for anyone doubting their reasons for quitting.....please dont, you really are choosing between life and death.
