Nicorette Ireland: Darren’s Story

Darren’s Quitting Story

Darren, Dublin

What was my smoking habit?

I started smoking in my teens. I’d go for a drink with the lads in the pub on a Saturday night. I’d have 1 or 2 cigarettes with my pint. This escalated to 3 or 4 then it was 7 or 8 and before I knew it I was smoking.

My reason to quit smoking:

The main reason was for my family and my kids.

Benefits of quitting smoking:

You’re going to look better, smell better, feel better and have more energy! I get to spend the time doing things I want to do, spending time with my kids.

My top tips to quit smoking:

You do need help from family and friends to give you the right support.

You have to break your old routines.
