Hi everyone, today is my first day on this forum and it`s day 1 of being a non-smoker. I have quit before, for about 7 years having smoked for about 20years, and in that time I felt fantastic. I got fit, started running, ran the London marathon 3 times (!!), did triathlons you name it - it was great. I was so inspired by my new healthy lifestyle that I even decided on a career change and took myself back to uni to retrain. I`m too embarassed to tell you what I trained as because part of my job is to help people make lifestyle changes for their health -and there I am smoking!! My downfall was 'just one'. I don`t even know why I wanted it but one led to another and now four years later I`m here telling you all that I failed. I want today to be the day I start to get my life back again. I hate smoking and what it can do to you and want to be free of it for good. Reading other peoples post on here has been incredibly motivating.
So here goes (again!) and best of luck to anyone else who has chosen today to quit!
