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.
