No Smoking Day

Getting ready for tomorrow

As tyomorrow is no smoking day I'm kicking this habit for good hopefully. My reason for quitting is the fact my father died last week and although he wasn't a smoker he succumbed to prostate and then bone cancer. The word cancer is the relevant bit, i don't want it and i don't want to leave my family before my time as he did.

It's still recent grief and it'll be hard but i reckon a longer life is worth it!

Wish me luck and hopefully I'll get to know some of you along the way!!!

Cheers Paul, I'm not looking forward to the start of the journey but I'm looking forward to the benefits at the end. Thanks for the support



Firstly I am really sorry about your recent loss, I am sure your dad would be very pleased that you have decided to give up smoking! I also lost my dad and one of the things I keep in my mind is how pleased he would be that I quit smoking and it tends to keep me on track! I'm sure you will find lots of support on here, I find just reading different posts helpful. Good luck and remember you can do it! :)
