I did it with the help of my GP who ran a quit smoking clinic - I went to see him twice a day for a few days, then daily, then twice a week...

That was ten years or more ago, though.

Still find I fancy the odd one, but the real habit thing went within months.

Its both easier and harder than you think - but when you have done it and look back on it, you'll see how easy it really was...

Hi Mike :D ...

Good to hear from you mate. Thank you for this invaluable feedback. If I were to create a quit smoking thread here on Sensitize, would you submit this poem? I plan to do a diary of my first few experiences and possibly a poem or two. Hopefully other members will join in. Could even lead to a publication if I push it up the line to funders... No rush deciding Mike. At your leisure my friend...

Cheers :) ...

I'd probably write something else to go with it - though who knows. The muse, she be an awkward bedfellow at the moment, she leave me to find my own way home...

Aye...

Anything you can contribute would be splendid Mike and very much appreciated.

Thank you :D ...

Edit 23.39 - 30th January, 2007:

Mike. Or any other active member on here. Do you have poems or can you write poems that address the disgusting amounts of tax levied on tobacco?

The points in particular that I'm looking to raise are that:

If the government were truly committed to getting the nation healthy again. They should start by distancing themselves from tax profit and all profit from the promotion of such a lethal product.

They either care or they don't. There is no middle ground on an issue as serious as the nation's health.

Statistics may be useful. I will set about doing some research on this over the next few days.

Is Quitting Tobacco A Journey?

Is Quitting Tobacco A Journey?

Hi Mike. An interesting thread has 'got up' as a result of this poem mate. If you click the hyperlink at the top of this post, you'll be taken directly to it...

Post # 3 has a question for you...

Thanks :) ...
