Hello all my fellow warriors in the on going war against the common enemy, cigarettes!
I am barely out of my teens & already notice how 4 years of smoking has really damaged my health, fitness & general well being. I am once again attempting to quit (maybe my fourth time in 16 months) but this time, I am determined!
I am from London, work as a barman in south west London which actually makes it a lot more difficult as most of my colleagues smoke, not to mention the customers. It's a real struggle. I'd just like to know what keeps you motivated? How long has it been? What changes have you noticed? I am really interested in reading all replies.
Also, when speaking on this subject publicly I often get "you haven't smoked long enough kid, try giving up after 30 years", & I totally respect I am not even close to a lot of fellow ex-cigarette smokers record, but this is all the more reason why I wish to give up. The longer you continue this habit, the deeper the hole gets & I'm desperate to get out before it's too late.
Oh, and I'm Ryan by the way, nice to meet you all & you'll be seeing a lot more of me!
