"I gave up smoking in about 1993. When I had my last cigarette I know it was the last and I have never smoked since. I knew why I wanted to quit. I wrote down all of the reasons including personal health, my young daughter, the cost, and so on. Finally, I realised how cross I was that I was tied to this cocktail of drugs. I got myself angry and that made it easy to quit. If you can convince yourself to not smoke, all of the withdrawal and lack of a reward system in your day just fade away. Do it for yourself. Do it for those that care about you."
