Hi the name is Graeme, I'm nearly 60 and have been smoking since I was 12 and at 13 I was smoking in the house in front of my parents
For me nicotine became a friend and a crutch that helped me through a stressful career, difficult times in my life and an aid to help me relax.
Until today I was smoking a 50grm pack of roll up tobacco in less than 3 days.
I've stopped smoking a thousand times :rolleyes: The problem for me is staying stopped,> I even went for 12 months without and then whilst at a very merry party accepted a ciggy, thinking just one wont hurt. I was then back on 30 a day:mad:
Today is my first day at trying again,and I have an added incentive this time as I have been recently diagnosed with COPD and as much as I depend upon and enjoy smoking, it's got to go....... Permanently !!
