Ok so I was meant to give up and FINE I cheated every now and then with a little small eeny teeny puff. Did I feel good after each puff? No, it tasted like I had dragged my tongue over a dirty pavement and then back again. I think it is round about now when I tell you or rather suggest that you don’t read on if you have either a weak stomach or smoke…. the inconvenient truth is not pretty.
I have been smoking since the age of 14, I only really got into it when I was 18, by the age of 21 I smoked 60 a day if not more. I have donated many brain cells to this cause, I am now 29 going on 50.
Nope not joking, 50 is the age of my lungs, 29 the age of everything else (not the liver mind). So here comes the disgusting bit that I really can’t avoid. The lungs on the left is what I should have, the lungs on the right are probably still better than what I have today as I sit here and type this.

Reality strikes hard and on the 24th, yes you heard right… Christmas eve, his funeral took place in South Africa. … Continue reading Time moves on
The time has come to say goodbye to a friend so close to my heart that I feel it breaking into a thousand pieces as type these words. My friend passed away this afternoon after fighting the cancer that riddled his body for just 5 months, he was only 31 and had so much living still to do. His plans to go round the world … Continue reading Time to say goodbye
