No Smoking Day

Today is No Smoking Day.

There must be many people who still smoke, and would really like to give up, without having the confidence to properly try.

I am an example of what can be done. I don`t smoke now, but was once a very heavy smoker.

In fact, I smoked from the age of 17 to 48 - a total of 31 years. That`s a long time by anybody`s standards, and at the height of my smoking career I was smoking 50 cigarettes a day.

Then in the Summer of 1991, I decided one morning to stop. I knew all the arguments against smoking, of course, but just hadn`t tried before.

That was nearly 20 years ago, and I have not had a cigarette since.

If I can do it, so can anybody else.
