Good Morning Julie


Just an update for you.


I came to see you on the 25th January 2010 at 5pm and a couple of minutes before that I had my last cigarette of my life.


It is now the 21st May 2010 and I am still clean and what's more the thought of smoking disgusts me beyond belief. When I smell smokers I tell them that they stink and should give up. Indeed I'm that bad that I work in a petrol station and tell people there that they should give you a ring instead of spending all their money on cigarettes! What a fool I have been for the past 28 years, smoking like a trooper instead of saving my money. I could have paid my mortgage off instead of burning those damn cigarettes, but life is a learning curve and boy have I learnt my lesson.


Since giving up smoking I have paid off one of my credit cards so I am slowly becoming debt free. I can't believe it has been this easy. I don’t even crave them in times of stress, and in the last four months I have been tested to the hilt with family problems at which I would have reached for my ciggies within seconds in days gone by!!!


However, I have redecorated my house, it has become smell free, the paintwork is white and nobody would dare smoke in there as I would ram those disgusting things down their throats. [Michael is only joking!]


I wish I had met you years ago and will love you forever for freeing me from the disgusting habit.


Thank you so much.
