  • Forum Post: Smoking

    If you, or someone you know, is finding it difficult to give up (as I did), then give this a go. It is like a magic pill! Unfortunately it is only available on prescription and that means it cannot be advertised. The name is Champix. I tried everything else - from acupuncture and hypnotism to all...
  • Forum Post: Re: help, smoking again!

    Hi Ellie, Don't beat yourself up, you're not a failure, you've just slipped a bit on your pedestal! I think you're brilliant for going a whole year without a fag after so many years as a smoker. I'm on the same journey as you: I was diagnosed with stage 2b NSCLC in February but...

  • Blog Post: What's the story, Morning Glory. The scales fall from my eyes....

    I slept! I actually slept. The road to this blissful unconsciousness last night was possibly the longest, bumpiest, volatile one I've ever taken for a good nights sleep. But it was sleep. It started of innocuous enough. (Doesn't it always) with arriving home after yesterdays duel with...

  • Blog Post: OH how the Pendulum swings......

    Is it easier knowing that the end is coming or not? Is it easier because you can prepare? You have a chance to say your final goodbyes. Last touches, last hugs, last kisses? Or is it easier having the proverbial plaster ripped off in one swift painful movement. I don't know. Part of me wants...

    You know that phrase when you 'holding out' for something. And you're praying and hoping that the news you don't want to hear, will never come? Well it has come. In the form of a tsunami ripping its way through my conciousness and searing itself permantly upon my life. My Dad has until...

  • Blog Post: Smoking until the end - any advice?

    Hello. This is my first ever blog and not entirely sure what I'm doing! My father has been given a very short prognosis of a number of weeks. He originally had bladder cancer which was treated but the treatment masked the effects of rare cancer cells originating in the pancreas and travelling...
  • Forum Post: Passive Smoking

    When we are told that smoking is one of the main causes of bladder cancer. I for one thought, I gave up smoking 40 years ago. How can that have anything to do with my bladder cancer now, even when the medics say, it takes years to develop I was still a bit doubtful. But this time when I went for my third...
