My mum the addict….a blog in support of Cancer Research

16 Apr

I have come out from behind my wall of silence today to speak over at the Cancer Research Blog in support of their latest campaign to weaken the marketing power of tobacco companies. To talk about what smoking did to my mother and me, and why I would do anything to stop my own kids from getting hooked. I’d appreciate your support so please come and have a read and leave a comment here if you can – especially as tomorrow is the 1st year anniversary of losing my darling mum who I miss and yearn for every day.

If you wish to read more about what cigarettes have done to my family, or what the journey has been like check out these posts.

    Thanks for your articulate words, Henrie. I’m going to show your post to my partner, a father of four who is struggling to leave behind his long term heavy habit, in the hope that your words may hit home. I had no idea that tabacco kills half its long term “friends”.

    You know you are forever in my thoughts Mrs. I HATE cigarettes with all my might. My boys know that smoking killed grandma and that I would be very unhappy if they ever smoked. I think the time has come to wipe this out. it is no longer a choice for people it is like committing suicide with every breath that the person takes

    Love and more love to you and your family, H xxxx A year is fast but so painfully slow as well. Wishing you some peace. I applaud you for using your voice with this campaign.

I'm all about the debate. Would love to hear what you think.
