I smoked 40 a day for 48yrs. I am asthmatic, my health was going down the tube, and then I met Penny my stop smoking advisor. If not for her, I am not sure I would still be here to tell the tale of how helpful she has been in supporting me. She gave me her time for as long as I needed it. I have now stopped smoking for a year and I hope to remain stopped for ever and I am now able to continue with fostering which I had to give up doing when my health was bad.
