Why I volunteer
My name is Jordan Evans. I grew up in the welsh valleys of Merthyr Tydfil
and am a student in information technology and a former smoker.
see I am twenty-three, I quit smoking at twenty-one. I tried my first cigarette during high school, at the age of fourteen, primarily due to peer-pressure from my then friends; much like many kids at that age. The first time I tried a cigarette still sticks out in my mind, particularly the unpleasant burning sensation I had in the back of my throat when I took the first drag, as well as the coughing fit I experience after. However, I finished the cigarette and felt pretty grown up in doing so – and in a strange way, I sort of enjoyed the mild feeling of calm that washed over me. That was my first experience with smoking.
24option I did not smoke again until two years later, in my first year of college. Being fresh out of high school and desperate to make friends, I felt that – in the area I lived, anyway – the best way to start a conversation would be through offer a cigarette to someone. I feel that most young people begin smoking for this very reason – they see it as a way to fit in. I then smoked regularly for five years, during which time I was introduced to adding cannabis to tobacco to get high. I found this just as addictive as plain nicotine; maybe even more so because of the artificial high it gave me.

At the time, I did not think much of it; just that is was a small habit that a lot of people in Merthyr Tydfil do, so why should it concern me? This mentality was backed up by minimal amount of smoking I did when I first started. But by this time, I was smoking more every day. This became clear to me in my first year in Ystrad Mynach College, when my step-brother told me about how he had noticed I was getting out of breath after long commutes; being someone who enjoys a daily exercise routine, felt it would be best to quit, once I was noticed I was lacking in energy and my skin was looking more aged; especially around my eyes, where I was developing black noticeable circles. I also found I was spending a lot of money on this habit – particularly on buying cannabis. All of these factors gave me the motivation to cut down, and eventually quit.

I felt temptation was all around me; which made it difficult at times to say no. As I was experiencing light-headedness, restless sleep, as well as feeling very irritable for the reasons that – a few months prior – would have seemed arbitrary.

Eventually, I found distracting myself with various other activities, such as drawing, helped me take my mind off the feelings of stress and cravings I had.
