It's lovely to see all the new faces on here. I love to see all those guys out there giving nic the big boot! It is so hard when you have had that evil little crutch supporting you over the years. Looking at the poll - many of us started smoking between 15-20 (me too!) Forty years on I have finally managed to stay off those cancer sticks. I do repeat myself but I think the secret to my success so far, was to make a promise to myself that i wouldn't have that first puff. it invariably set me off again - if not the same day, then a bit later! Happy to say that 19months on - I am still not having that first puff. Don't beat yourself up if you do, dust yourself down and . . . . . as the song goes! After I stopped I got diagnosed with lung cancer - that being another story on the other website.!! In remission at the moment, but I know the outlook is only poor especially since it was inoperable. Anyway, I am now happy and content and still using my dummy(Vaping!) But still off the fags. Keep at it everyone, keep occupied - get wrapping those prezzies up! Looks like the weather is changing - so it could be snowballing time soon!! Vee
