Mark (37 year) - June 11, 2001

"I have finally kicked the habit, but funnily enough, it was for my father not for me! I live with my parents and am HIV+, I was smoking 90+ cigaretts per day (on a good day, heaven help the bad ones!) My father gave up smoking 20years ago, and then took it up about 5 years ago. I realise that I really don't have a lot of risk of dying of Lung Cancer as my fate is fairly well decided, but, we gave up smoking together, and that was almost 6 months ago (10 days off now!) I think I started smoking mainly because everyone at work did, and it was a coping mechanism. I am thankfull that now smoking in the workplace is banned in Australia, and hope other countries have seen the light too. "
