Thanks so much, yes I do plan to stop smoking, in the next week or so. I find it harder to not drink and smoke when I feel so down as it gives me some crumbs of comfort (not gluten crumbs of course! ). But I know it's something I must do, will get myself some nicotine patches.
Thanks again (ps: I have an Irish heart too, well in fact my whole body is Irish and my intestines it seems, I'm from County Kerry!)
