Hi. My name's David, i am 42 yrs old and have smoked since i was about 22. About ten years ago I moved from regular cigs to roll ups. And I'm sorry to say that in the past few years especially I have gone from being a smoker to a n almost chain smoker.
I have never tried to give up, the thought of it terrifies me. My life is quite stressful at the moment and the very thought of giving up fills me with dread. In the past year especially I have grown increasingly worried about my health, my energy is low and I sometimes feel tight chested. I think that I am at the stage now where I am well and truly sick of being a smoker. I have to stop. I am so worried that I have already done irreversible damage to my body.
I know what my options are, am aware of all the schemes etc so am not really here to seek advice as such, but I think that I will benefit from the support that a forum can give.
I haven't picked a date yet to quit……it's lurking very close though. I want so much to stop and be able to put it all behind me.
Thanks for reading.
