How To Give Up Smoking # 2
BY MEANS OF INTRODUCTION, SUBJECT MATTER WISE, THIS IS SIMPLY SOMEONE WHO CHOOSES TO PLACE ONLINE, THEIR LIVE EXPERIENCE OF QUITING SMOKING FOR GOOD. ANY/ALL COMMENTARY IS WELCOMED.
Err, Part # 1 never happened, so I kicked in immediately with part # 2.
God this is a really tough one.
OK, I admit, I have been a smoker since I was 16.
That's not strictly true, I first tried 'making my own' in the back yard from fallen beech leaves that 'looked like' tobacco leaves.
At the age of 7 - 8 though, I had no idea.
Come 16, I "managed" to afford my first pack. 10 of course because 20 was too expensive.
"Could I have 10 Benches & Hedges please", asked the v. trembling sweaty schoolboy?
I remember it well.
Back then, if one could not afford a 10/20 pack, local shop-keepers would ask no questions and sell you a "single". - NICE (at least I thought).
20 or so years passed.
There comes a point.
I can only really speak in UK terms, but the cost of this filthy habit is beyond me in all terms. I got hooked at an early age, and somehow, I think I was not the only one !!!!
If I had seen the likes of this when I were a boy, I think I might just have come to a different conclusion.
To conclude, the first image to me is the most striking and the more of these the better.
