Ok for those of you who are new, I'm Dak, and like Mitz, I also live in Australia. In fact, she lives half a mile from me lol.If you are wondering why you haven't seen me around, its because I've not been well, thats all. Heres a warning for you. I have been smoking for 30 years. Its never bothered me, I, like everyone else, think it wont happen to me.A couple months ago I came within 2 hours of having my left foot amputated above the ankle because of gangrene, caused by blood clots which were caused by smoking. The operation had been scheduled, but a pulse appeared in my foot with 2 hours to spare. I am recovering, I've kept my foot, though one of my toes is still not looking good. I feel very lucky indeed.Do yourself a favour... smoking... dont do it...Hi all those I havent met, and welcome to the forum. 🙂

Only your will power can help you to quit smoking. I'd myself been a heavy smoker. But for the last one year or so, I've quit it altogether. Meditation and deep breathing exercises helped me a lot in this direction.July 15, 2011 at 10:41 am #32297

Smoking tobacco is both a psychological habit and a physical addiction. The act of smoking is ingrained as a daily ritual and, at the same time, the nicotine from cigarettes provides a temporary, and addictive, high. Eliminating that regular fix of nicotine will cause your body to experience physical withdrawal symptoms and cravings. To successfully quit smoking, youâ€™ll need to address both the habit and the addiction by changing your behavior and dealing with nicotine withdrawal symptoms.September 19, 2011 at 3:09 pm #32299CIngramParticipant
