One Year On

Its a year ago today that I gave up smoking.

Do I feel healthier? No.
Have I saved loads of money to put towards something nice for myself? No.
Were my friends and family supportive? No.
Does anyone recognise that it was a difficult thing to do? No.

So why did I do it? I’m not sure really. I’m often tempted to smoke but don’t because of other people’s reactions. But those same people just tell me I bloody well shouldn’t have smoked in the first place rather than recognise that it wasn’t easy to give up.

Oh well. I hope it makes them happy because a cigarette at times of stress used to really help. Maybe only psychologically, but it helped.

About Mel Griffiths

I live and work in Nottingham, England and am blind. This blog is often centred around things that happen to me because of being blind. This is my space to write and sometimes people will disagree with what I write, but its the one place I have in which to be frank and honest. I also like to reflect on the funnier side of life from time to time.
