Well I have made it to the 1 year without a smoke mark, but the damage has been done. Subject to further tests it would appear that I have Aorto Illiac disease which is narrowing and/or blockages in the lower Aorta and both Illiac arteries that feed various body organs and the Femoral Arteries for my legs. This causes me severe pain when walking more than about 60Mtrs, and I do mean severe. It can get worse to the point where amputation is required, thankfully my problem has been diagnosed in time.
This is caused by 53 years of smoking, so if you have moments where you are tempted to have a smoke then remember this post.
