I smoked on and off since I was 16, but always assumed I could quit at any time. I studied Conservation and Biodiversity at University, and as the course progressed I realised how bad pollution was and how I was polluting myself by smoking.
I quit smoking after my boss challenged me to give up cigarettes. She suggested I try Nicorette QuickMist Spray and I used it for a couple of weeks and it helped me to quit.
I didn’t realise how much smoking had affected me, but within weeks of stopping smoking my teeth were whiter and I didn't have dark circles around my eyes, or breakouts on my face anymore.
I’ve always been sporty and my fitness had declined when I was smoking as I found myself short of breath. Now that I’ve quit, I can run and do all the things I did before without getting out of breath.
I really don’t miss that horrible stale smoke smell on my fingers and clothes.
