Good day to everyone. Thanks for all the Valentines wishes  


Well today I went to the hospital to collect my dad who is 76 and has been in the hospital for 3 days after having a pace maker fitted he is not looking so great at the moment but who can blame him after going through that type of operation. 


Its strange how these events in life make you realise how lucky we are to be alive and healthy after all the years of polluting our lungs with all the chemicals in cigarettes! I let him know of my 44 days quit and he said he was very happy with me and proud of me for quitting. This is a big moment because there haven't been many times where he physically has said that made me feel really good. 


This point links back to something I read on this site about telling your loved ones about your quitting smoking and this is so true, having their support and also their pride in your quit makes it so much more potent. By telling your loved ones that you are going to never smoke again ever gives the thought of slipping up a good sting and keeps you motivated and strong, or at least is does for me. 


Have a great day everyone
