Kathleen's Story

“The benefits of stopping smoking are that I’m far more energetic and I have more respect for myself.”

Kathleen from Denbighshire started smoking at the age of 14 and smoked between 15 -20 cigarettes a day. She had attempted to quit once in the past and has now been smoke free for 2 months and hasn’t looked back, but does find it difficult on some days as her husband still smokes and that she sometimes finds it a struggle especially as they used to do Tobacco runs together.

Kathleen did not obtain any help from any source apart from Stop Smoking Wales meetings.

“Since giving up the best thing about stopping smoking is that I feel a lot better in myself, my sleep is much better and I’m not as lethargic as she used to be.”
