Thankyou so much, don’t know why i’m so tearful today, i guess it’s the realisation i need to do this to have any quality of life & be able to look after my 10yr old darling son x

The picture is beautiful. I had some problems with throat. Resisted going to ENT. Was afraid because I used to smoke. Thank goodness, went to see ENT. . no throat cancer....says it's reflux. Think of me when wanting that smoke stick.


Congrats - stay strong.

Thankyou very much 🙂

Good luck Vee70. Luckily smoking never had a hold on me. Could pack up easily. Just smoked socially at 1st. Completly gave up Dec 21 1990. When my Mom died of Smoking related disease at 62. Within 2 days of feeling ill she was gone. Bad old Woodbines. Tip i used to do. If i had a craving for a fag. I used to chew gum. Found it helped. Good luck BRIAN

Oh goodness, so sad. Good for you, i have gum at the ready, thankyou 😀

Was sad. My Mom knew she was ill. But kept it to herself. Not wanting to worry us. Xmas has never been the same since. But good opportunity to have holidays every year since

Xmas is so difficult for many, i guess a holiday makes it slightly more bearable.

I see you are in hosp, from another post. Wishing you a speedy recovery 😊

Lol. No had a pacemaker fitted 3 weeks today. All was going well, until my complete arm on the op side started swelling up. Had a long day at hospital yesterday. Found i have a blood clot in my Shoulder. So on a self injecting 2 weeks of Warfarin
