Good Morning, my name is Joshua and I am new here.
I gave up smoking for lent so I am a month an a half without smoking already.
I am originally from London but am working with a charity in Cambodia and have been here since early March. Before I left the UK I was reading this forum but I thought I would just start smoking again after Easter so I didn't sign up. I tried to read the forum when I got here but couldn't get on, it might be the internet company or the government that are blocking the site but an IT guy that works for the charity told me some tricks and now I can get it here most of the time.
It was very hard for me not smoking but lent is about sacrifice, when I got here it was harder still as so many more people smoke than at home and you just can't get away from it and they are so cheap. It may sound foolish but it feels harder still now that lent is over and I am allowed to go back to what I gave up but I think if I can get through the next few weeks then I will be OK, well that's what I'm praying for.
Thank you for reading,
