I'm Anne Penman and although I now live in Glasgow, I'm originally from Ballynahinch in Northern Ireland where my mum Helen owned The Primrose Bar.
I moved to Scotland 20 years ago but after having laser therapy in Northern Ireland to help me give up the 60-a-day habit I'd had for 19 years, I swopped my passion for smoking for a passion to help others give up.
I trained as a laser therapist and developed my own tailor made programme to help people stop smoking which combines laser therapy with personalised counselling as well as a 24-hour helpline. Anne Penman Laser Therapy now has 30 centres worldwide, from Belfast to Bogota.
I'll be blogging like nobody's business from now on! In the meantime, here's me and my mum Helen at our head office in Glasgow. Mum always knows best!
