Hi, I'm Bex.
I'm a 30 year old mum to 3 young children and have finally decided to quit for good.
I have tried a few times in the past but obviously was not successsful but I think that was partly due to me not really in the right frame of mind to quit as I actually enjoy smoking.
However since being diagnosed with Cancer just before Christmas 2012 I had decided I wanted to quit then and there. I was however in a really bad place and the stress of not smoking was actually making me feel worse while trying to come to terms with what the next months were going to be like for me with the chemo. ops and radiotherapy. I'm nearly at the end of my Chemo treatment, Just another session in 2.5 weeks time and then I shall probably be going into hospital for my ops soon after.
The Cancer isn't smoking related but has spurred me on to quit anyway.
It's my 2nd day of not smoking and I'm surprised at how easy it has been so far. I haven't even really thought about a cig but did find myself looking for the ashtray about an hour ago. When I realised what I was doing, I just stopped and sat back down. I didn't even want a cig, I supose it's just out of habbit I got up to get the ashtray. Wish I could throw the Ashtray out but My husband won't quit.
I'm saving the money each day and putting it into a new saving account so we can have a nice family holiday next year.
