Hi all, hope this finds you well and kicking!
I just really wanted to share my peaceful feelings after feeling so angry and upset last week!
I felt poorly again this week but I suspect that things have been masked with smoking for so long. Regardless, a feeling of deep calm and happiness has settled over me since yesterday. I sat with my mum and nephew last night, they smoked and I didn't once feel the need to join them.
I was a bit harsh on my nephew as he had given up smoking for a week, he's cut right down and is using an e cig at home.
I told him I wouldn't 'tell' him to give up, but gave him some facts about where he's headed if he continues to allow smoking to be his boss... I hope it's worked, he's just 27 and I really want him to give himself a chance.
Anyway, I'm here, peaceful, happy and counting my numerous blessings, not least having found this wonderful place. Thank you so much for the support...
Very best wishes
