I can still remember smoking my first cig at 16 with my best friend (who had been smoking a while!!) & thinking that I could give up whenever I wanted because it really wouldn't be that hard !! 39 years later & this is the longest I've managed without a cig in nearly all that time (did a year many moons ago,went out,had a couple too many & the rest is history) I absolutely KNOW that if I'd realised then just how much smoking was going to cost me in terms of health and wealth and if I'd realised just how hard it was going to be to stop I wouldn't have smoked that first cigarette.Would you have chosen to smoke if you'd known all the risks & realised how hard it would be to stop ?
