In her late 40's with three grown-up sons, Jackie Dempsey from Armitage Bridge in Huddersfield was beginning to feel "tired and old" and guilty about being a smoker. She came to see Julie at the end of May 2011 and wrote this in November.


Just wanted to flag up that I have now stopped smoking for 6 months. I felt I would be a smoker until my dying day, which didn't feel too far away, deliciously I was wrong!


My life is still too busy, still too stressful but I no longer add smoking to that mix. I walk the dog every day before work, have taken up yoga and resisted the urge to drink more red wine in place of cigarettes!


Just wanted to say thank you very much Julie for your helping hand and positivity.
