One of the things I get asked when I see someone for the first time is “should I get rid of my cigarettes and ashtrays”. What I say to them is, “It’s your choice, it’s about what works best for you, but I would encourage you to seriously think about getting rid of them”. The reason is that there may be times when you might be tempted and anything that allows you to get through that moment without smoking can make all the difference. What would you like to ask?
