(Goodwood, South Africa)
I started smoking shortly after I left school just because everybody around me was smoking.
Apart from smoking being very unhealthy, it also became pretty expensive. I made the decision to quit as I did not want to grow old with a cigarette in my hand.
I did not want my grandchildren to ever see me smoking. Even though I did not have grandchildren at that stage I knew it was only a matter of time.
I decided just to use willpower and to stop smoking on a certain given day. This is exactly what I have done.I just stopped cold turkey and that was it.
I had my last cigarette during the 1995 Rugby World Cup Final. I decided not to ever light a cigarette again and with the help of our Heavenly Father I can today in all honesty say that I never did.
I believe that it is possible for every smoker to quit, but a smoker first of all has to make the decision to quit and then pray to God for help.
Then you must see to it that your lips never touch a cigarette again.
