Hi everybody. A big hello to anyone who is making the 9th March their Giant Step, like me.
I guess that many of you who are already on your journey will say, 'why wait for the 9th?' Well, it's because I think that after 50 years of smoking, it is a Giant Step. And not an easy one.
For health reasons, I'm hell bent on going cold turkey. I'm feeling your nudges already. Ha.
Sometime in the next 4/6 months I am having cataracts removed from both eyes. The problem is that I can't lie down without coughing and as this operation is done by local anaesthetic while lying flat - I guess it wouldn't take place.
I take my hat off to you all for taking this big step and hope that you will wish me luck with my 'turkey '.
I enjoyed smoking so I know that it's going to be hard. I'm really going to need your support.
Strength and good luck to you all.
