It seems so long ago that I started smoking that it is lost in the mists of time. I think I was 14 or 15 at the time, and that would have been in the mid-60’s. Both of my parents smoked so it seemed only natural in those days that I would follow. As the decades have gone past we have been made more aware about the dangers of smoking, and these days it is becoming the norm that smoking is unacceptable.
Although I have wanted to give up for years, it was only last month that I actually had the willpower to try it. The reason being was twofold; a friend of mine passed away from lung cancer, and another friend had successfully given up by using electronic cigarettes.
I have now tried a number of e-cigs and e-liquid flavors to see which one I preferred, and have settled on a rather expensive one. However it is much cheaper than real cigarettes, and I am already putting those savings away to pay for a holiday.
It will be a long road from here, but I know that each week that passes it will not only get easier, but it will improve my overall health.
