I've given up smoking 33 days ago after 40 years.
I was going through 2 packs (100 Grams) per week of Tobacco.
I've always said I couldn't give up unless I got a Health Scare, well I 'Got One' a few weeks ago!!
Went to my GP after ongoing pain in my leg & ankle thinking I had 'Gout' that was about 6 weeks ago, a week later I was in Theatre for over 6 hours having a Femoral Bypass on my leg (see attached pic).
I had a smoke 5 minutes before I went in to Hospital for my Op & haven't had one since, when I want one I look at my feet and remember what my Surgeon said & that was "I was so close to having a 'Lower Limb Amputation'"
It's not easy, it's early days & I'm still sore nearly 5 weeks later but Smoke Free.
Good Luck to all
