My Reasons

I think there were lots of reasons that came to a head that led to me quitting.

My Father died very young from heart disease, and his Father too. Now I'm 26 I'm starting to think about these things. I want to have children one day - I've met the woman I want to have them with, of that I'm sure. I don't want my children to ask me why I stink of smoke, the same way I used to ask my Father. I don't want to die at 37 years old, and leave behind my children and the woman I love. I want that to last as long as possible. I want to take control of my own body, my own life. I don't want to be enslaved by those little white sticks anymore. I want to be able to, day after day, tell it that I've beaten it, and that it won't ever have me back again, no matter what.

PHEW. All done.

  • Hey all,

    Thanks so much for the kind words and encouragement. I really do appreciate it - and that's not me just saying that either.
