Chooseday pledger: Francisco

Francisco or Coco to some, tells us why we decided to take the Chooseday pledge and makes a case for e-cigarettes.

When did you start smoking?

I started smoking when I was around 15. I’m now 26.

 

How many cigarettes do you smoke a week?

Buying normal packets of cigarettes was too expensive so I switched over to rolling my own because it was cheaper. Can’t really calculate how many but I smoke about 40 grams of tobacco a week.

 

What are your smoking triggers?

Being outside with other smokers and general social gatherings. Oh and when I drink.

 

Do you cave in to these triggers?

Once I get intoxicated there’s no stopping me.

 

What made you want to take the #chooseday pledge?

I ran up Basser Steps and found my breathing to be an issue, thought I should at least try to quit. For my health.

 

How long have being doing #chooseday?

Almost a month now

 

How has it been?

Really hard, I have cut back on smoking tobacco but I have replaced it with electronic cigarettes. I’ve been spending the same amount of money but I do feel a lot better.

 

Since beginning #chooseday has quitting smoking seemed like a more achievable goal?

Definitely
