Terry visited the Better Living Service in Calderdale after he wanting to quit smoking. As a thank you to his advisor, Renuka, he wrote her a lovely letter to let everyone know how well he's been getting on since quitting!
Sorry for my late reply, I have been so busy!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over the last 12 weeks, although I was very determined to quit those nasty sticks of cancer. I am almost certain it would of been much harder to achieve without your help and support.
There were some moments I found stressful and other times I found more difficult than others but with you there to remind me of my progress and to tell me of my progress really did make a difference.
I can honestly now say that I am over the weakness of going back to cigarettes and my life is so much better without them.
Not only do I feel better in myself I also have more money in my pocket and my wife no longer tells me that I smell!
The biggest deal is that my children have also acknowledged that I no longer smoke which means a lot to me.
Regarding the Champix tablets, I am not sure exactly how they helped me but I know they did help, I think maybe they helped me to stay calm during stressful times at work which in turn gave me some extra strength to not reach for the fags so I definitely think the tablets along with your support and my own will power was key to my success of quitting for good.
Thank you once again Renuka I really appreciate all of your good work.
Amazing to read, well done Terry!
