Fraser's Quitting Story
Fraser, 26, Eltham
“Now that I’m the quitter of the group, it does give me a sense of pride knowing that I can be someone else's inspiration”
What was my smoking habit?
I used to smoke when I was out and about in London, you’re hit with this life and this noise and all of these people. Its very much a trigger for me.
My reason to quit smoking:
I realised that smoking was holding me back from being a better dancer.
I teach at a few dance schools and I don’t want to smoke around them, I want to promote a healthy lifestyle for a dancer.
Benefits of quitting smoking:
My stamina within some of the numbers; I noticed that I could hold my breath and sing until the end of the songs. I noticed that I wasn't panting and bright red sweating.
My top tips to quit smoking:
It may be the hardest thing that you ever do, but its so worth it.
In the interval, everyone would smoke, so I had to replace that with something else. We made a non-smokers group.
