Day 13 – Katie
Woo-hoo! Day thirteen of Smoke Swap already! I can’t believe it’s gone by so fast. I’ve had my moments of doubt and the obvious pangs for cigarettes but this has been an incredible journey for me. I know I’m still at the beginning stages. I’ve smoked for ten years but Smoke Swap has allowed me to revaluate my life and break the strangle hold that cigarettes have had on me. I feel more confident and free without cigarettes. I can’t believe how I was subtly seduced by cigarettes until I was a slave to the nicotine.
Today I met Perry at King’s Cross; he was looking very tan having just returned from Barcelona. We went to BUPA Wellbeing were he had a Carbon Monoxide test.
After Perry had his first blow into the machine and while he went outside to have a cigarette, I had time to talk with the doctor about my journey to stop smoking.
I didn’t have to go today but just having a chat with the doctor has clarified a few thoughts for me and reinforced my new beliefs to stop smoking forever. I’m not giving anything up but I’m claiming back what is rightly mine. My life, free of addiction, yep I’ve got a healthy new me.
I would encourage and recommend everyone to stop smoking. If you are thinking of smoking for the first time or if you are under a lot of pressure to start smoking I would say resist it at all costs. It just isn’t worth it. Only chavs smoke! It’s dumb, and you’re better than that.
