Dear Me,

You were diagnosed with Type I Diabetes and Cancer runs in the family. Don’t you want to live a long healthy life? Cigarettes don’t control you, you control you. You have tried to quit before and failed but you have much to live for such as Friends and family. I know you are tired of your house, clothes and car smelling like smoke. Now is the time to change all that! The excuses you make to smoke such as stress can be dealt with in more positive non destructive ways. Think of how nice it will be not to have to hide the fact that you are a smoker from your in-laws and sneaking around worrying if they can smell it on you. As a teenager you always said that you would never be a smoker because it is a disgusting habit but you started at age 21. It has been 17 years now and it is time to think of you and your health. With the support you can do it! I believe in you.
