It may seem a strange title unless you've been watching on ITV on Sunday nights - Endeavour, the magnificent (IMHO) prequel to 'Morse', set in the mid sixties.
So what has this got to do with 'help to stop'?:confused:
Well if you've not seen it, just watch it on ITV player. A stark reminder of how far we've moved on in the last fifty years (and particularly in the last five since the smoking ban). Smoking was absolutely everywhere - in every office, every pub, every cinema, every bus... thank God for the smoking ban!
If you're old enough (and most of us are), just cast your mind back to those days (yes, it really was like that:eek and think how much harder your quit would be if smoking was in your face around every corner. The majority of the population were smokers... your friends, family, co-workers. How much harder to quit then, to be seen as the 'odd man out' by quitting, rather than the 'odd man out' by smoking?
I remember the smoking ban coming in and thinking 'Effing Brussels meddlers infringing our civil liberties':rolleyes: - typical addict reasoning :p. Now I've 'seen the light', all I can say is, just one look at a 'period drama' set in the sixties or seventies will have you thanking your lucky stars that you're living your life now and not forty years ago!
