QUITTING
By Dan Poulson
Dan's been smoking for four years and thinks it's time to give up. There are plenty of reasons for packing it in but it's going to be difficult. He's preparing himself for smoky pubs filled with friends satisfiying their addiction, whilst he fights his.

If you asked your dad whether he wanted you to 'be like him' as regards smoking, my guess is he'd say no. I'm 43 and recently quit - my 16 year old son smokes and I already see the signs in him that led me to a life of wheezy, smelly, expensive and debilitating addiction. If you think it's time to give up...you're right - good luck!

I smoked from age 17 until age 65. Now I am 5+ months cigarette free. I hated the fact that I was dependent on cigarettes and planning too many of my social activities around that dependency. Plus it is expensive and certainly damaging to physical health. I wish I had quit at your age! It won't be easy for you, but you'll be proud of yourself and go on to live a healthier, happier life. I wish you well in winning the nicotine addiction battle.

Dan explains the pleasures and pitfalls of stopping smoking - i think he enjoys them too much to give up - a bit like myself.
