After a number of attempts to stop smoking, it took the love of my 10 year old to hammer the final nail. I lost my partner in August and after several weeks he was laid to rest in October. There’s not a lot we have control over in life and many events can shorten it. Helping to destroy mine out of choice by smoking was not to be an option any longer. I have to survive for my son and the love and support he has shown me, through this difficult episode in our lives.
