Ok after thirty five years , 100’s of 1000’s of pounds and untold damage to my innards I have taken the first step to a healthier , wealthier & hopefully longer life and have STOPPED smoking. To be more precise I smoked my last fag a few hours ago and as a wise man once said the first step in a thousand mile journey is the most important step and yeah – I’m with him on this.
I have tried a few times in the past , but these were always half-arsed attempts and I knew deep down that I had no intentions of really stopping – Just wanted to keep the wife and daughter happy and told them what I though they needed to hear – and off course they knew I was bullshitting them all alone.
How do women do at?
Anyways if you follow this blog you may be aware that it was my BIG 50 last week and I have always kinda promised myself that when I reached this milestone I would try and look after myself a bit better and quitting smoking was always top of this list.
So wish me luck and I promise to keep you up to date on this and other live-longer schemes I will be implementing over the next few weeks/months.
PS. Knowing my luck I’ll keel over and have a heart – attack any minute now!
