cheers Cin. The way I felt during the run and in my chest was a lot worse than any withdrawal. I will do it
(( Cin)) -sorry to hear about your mum-wish her luck from me. I am finding this book useful and you can download it free and print it for her (unless she is good on the net)
What again ???????
"To give up smoking is easy..... I have done it many times".
Good luck Hoose.....
5 years for me this year
well done you
You are right Davy. I have early COPD.
Hope your treatment is successful. The dangers I guess were made very real to you.
Well done Hoose ....again.
11 years for me this year and Im soooo smug about it
You can do it this time find someone to give up with so you will let them down if you go back, guilt is a strong motivator.
What is COPD?
Doesn't matter how many times you start giving up, you'll get there in the end! Mum has tried many times but this time its right for her!
Hoose good luck
davy Tree- i'm sorry to hear that - i hope you be ok
i have'nt smoked in oohh 30 odd years -
i don't smoke, drink or gamble - boring maybe - but when me and brothers were young - it crippled our young life with mums and dads habits
A friend of mine's given up (this year). Tried lots of times before. I'll give him a month before he's back on them again..
I really don't understand why ppl give in and re-start when they say they're giving up - JFDI.
Ultimately it's weakness.
thanks for the support folks. I know i have stopped and started countless times-it is a dreadful addiction.
Adam- Allen Carr clinic stopped me for 3 months-have to audio book somewhere-cheers.
Siance-thans ut not sure if it is weakness or what. I will not beat myself up as eing weak if I fail-gets you depressed and smoking more in my experience.
COPD Cinders is Chronic Obstructive summat disease. It is catchall term to describe damage to lungs through emphysema and and other stuff. Medics here will put it better than me.
here you are Cinders
so glad for you and your mum Cin
she has to take real care -scary or not smoking is a hell of an addiction and the thought of not doing can even outweigh other fears. Looks though that it hasnt for your mum so far-I am so glad.
yip cinds-I was diagnosed 2 years ago and still smoked. Hope the thought of seeing Thomas grow up will do it-i think it will. I started at 9 but only 49.
she will do it - lots of vibes being sent
