Hello, my name is iain. I've never posted here before, but I thought this'd be a good way to get involved; this is one of my most challenging obstacles in training.
Do you train with someone who does?
I don't want to say too much, to keep the conversation as open as possible, but I'm very curious about other people's experiences with smoking and Aikido.
I'm just a beginner, but I hope to be a non-smoker by the time I'm shodan! I believe Aikido should lead to cleaner, healthier living, but for the time being, I'm a half-a-pack-or-so-a-day smoker.
