Smoking
I started the disgusting habit of smoking  back in 1991 at the age of 13. Looking back I don't know if it was a lame attempt to be 'cool' or just something to do to pass the time growing up in rural Ireland. Maybe it was a combination of both! After a year ...

Please help Carl Austin raise some money to donate to MND New South Wales at City2Surf in Sydney next month! Any donation will help fund research into treatment or hopefully a cure for Motor Neurone Disease which I & my fellow MND Warriors have to live with and adapt to on a daily basis!
