For about 40 years I smoked. After 30 dd years I had a fitness kick and ran half marathons, lighting up after each run. I had a physically demanding job and still I lit up. I gave up drinking but not the ciggies. I did try all sorts of ways to stop until one day, nearly two years ago, I finished off the last one and said enough was enough. It couldn’t have been the least stressful time to do it, right at the start of the Covid pandemic.
I went cold Turkey and got sick of eating it so found solace in the vape. It wasn’t easy and was an addict to nicotine. I am happy I did it as there isn’t that ‘smell’ around me or my lovely dresses. I haven’t got that hack that smokers have so all is good and, as I am on a reduced income, I am saving a few pennies and am aghast at the price of a pack of cigarettes now.
So in answer to those who have said could you give up smoking and drinking the answer is a resounding ‘Yes’. To those who ask if I could give up dressing, the answer is an emphatic ‘No’
