In 2002 I was selected to be a volunteer driver at the Manchester Commomwealth Games. This meant I would be based in the athletes village. It suddenly stuck me that there would be very limited opportunities to smoke in that location! I had wanted to stop so this was a real motivation.
A friend had used Alan Carr's book and stopped and recommended it. I bought the book, followed the advice and got myself ready. On the 25th of June 2002 I went to the place I had had my FIRST cigarette, (at the age of 9 years, 38 years previously),got my tobacco and papers out and rolled my LAST cigarette. When I finished I walked away and 3 weeks later when I met Paula Radcliffe (the athlete) there wasn't a hint of cigarette smell about me. Ten years on I am a non-smoker thanks to this book.
