Stoptober - A Smoker's Diary

Neil Harding blogs his diary of trying to quit smoking for Stoptober

It's the last day of Stoptober and the final podcast from Neil Harding from Luton, who's been blogging his attempt to kick the habit.

Neil's, 33 and serving as a communication specialist for 23 Pioneer Regiment in Bicester.

Here's his smoking blog on day one:

"I smoke 40 to 50 cigarettes a day and secretly smoke now so the wife doesn't find out, because I did give up once before. I woke up this morning and really wanted a cigarette, I asked one of the lads to leave me a bit of his cigarette, he gave me it and I was like no it's Stoptober and I'm going to start as I mean to go on. I'm using the e-cigarette, I've got a cherry flavour liquid, which is different. So yeah, things are going OK."

Click the links for all his podcasts this month and his final one, which is a tearjerker.
